Emergency crews arrived to find them both injured, but conscious. Paramedics evaluated them both at the scene, but there is no information as to whether or not they were transported to a hospital. The driver of the SUV who collided with them remained at the scene and cooperated with police officers. They were uninjured in this collision.

The motorcycle had to be removed from the roadway and investigators were seen looking for evidence and working the scene following the crash. Officers do not know what exactly happened on this Fresno road, but they hope to determine what caused this collision and who was at fault in their investigation.

Liability In Fresno Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists have a naturally small profile and are more likely to be overlooked by other drivers. Many collisions are due to drivers that make dangerous lane changes. According to California Vehicle Code 22107, “No person shall turn a vehicle from a direct course or move right or left upon a roadway until such movement can be made with reasonable safety and then only after the giving of an appropriate signal in the manner provided in this chapter in the event any other vehicle may be affected by the movement.” There are a number of factors that could potentially contribute to a motorcycle accident including:

  • Speeding
  • Drunk driving
  • Driver distraction
  • Inclement weather

The family of any victim that died in a motorcycle accident may be able to seek aid through a wrongful death claim. Damages can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are. There are, however, statute of limitations associated with civil claims. Failing to act within the statute of limitations may result in a permanent forfeiture of your rights.
