In many ways, injury law comes down to a question of cause and effect. Our San Francisco motorcycle accident attorney and his support team work diligently to determine (and prove) what caused the accident, the question of fault, and what has and will happen as a result, the question of damages. The “effect” inquiry looks at both today and tomorrow, an especially complex inquiry in the case of the serious injuries or loss of life that are far too common in motorcycle accidents. That is, however, a question for another day. Today, we discusses the “cause” inquiry, the question of what happened in the moments before the crash, looking at a recent tragedy in San Ramon and the leading research on the cause of motorcycle accidents. Ultimately, the cause and effect inquiries may be complex but our team is well-equipped to uncover the truth in order to help injured riders and grieving loved ones recover compensation for their losses.
Multi-Part San Ramon Accident Leaves Motorcycle Rider Dead
A multi-vehicle accident led to the death of a motorcycle rider in San Ramon on Monday. CBS San Francisco reports that the crash occurred around 4:40 A.M. on Highway 680 South just past Bollinger Canyon Road. The incident began when a Honda rear-ended a big-rig truck and the impact caused the Honda to spin before coming to a halt in the middle of lane three. A motorcycle then struck the disabled vehicle and the 39-year-old rider was ejected. Moments later, another big-rig truck hit both the motorcycle and the rider before catching aflame. The motorcycle rider was pronounced dead at the scene. CBS’s article does not note the status of any of the other individuals involved in the complex accident.
