Jose Campos, 24, was killed in a Fresno area car accident when his motorcycle crashed into another vehicle at a street intersection. According to a news report in the Tulare Advance-Register, the fatal motorcycle accident occurred at the intersection of Road 156 and Avenue 328 in Tulare County the afternoon of December 12, 2010. Police say the driver of a 1996 Saturn was traveling south on Road 156 when the vehicle was broadsided by the motorcyclist who was eastbound on Avenue 328. Campos was thrown off his motorcycle. He was taken to a Fresno hospital where he died from his injuries.
My deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of Jose Campos. My thoughts and prayers are with them following this tragic motorcycle accident.
According to California Highway Patrol’s 2008 Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS), eight people were killed and 61 were injured as a result of motorcycle accidents in the unincorporated areas of Tulare County. During the same year, there were 10 fatalities and 98 injuries reported as a result of motorcycle accidents in Tulare County.
It is unclear from this report if the motorist will be cited for the accident. Police say the car driver stopped before pulling into the intersection. Investigators will have to determine if the driver failed to yield right-of-way or failed to see the motorcycle approaching. I trust officials are also looking into whether the driver was impaired, distracted or otherwise negligent at the time.
The family of a deceased motorcycle accident victim may pursue compensation for their losses by filing a wrongful death claim. Damages that may be compensated by a wrongful death claim include medical bills, funeral expenses and lost future wages. In cases where negligence or wrongdoing may be involved, families of deceased car accident victims would be well-advised to seek the counsel of an experienced Fresno personal injury lawyer, who will stay abreast of the official investigation and ensure that their legal rights and best interests are protected.
