A man in his late 30s was injured in a Los Angeles motorcycle accident when his Harley Davidson went out of control and struck the center median. According to a news report in The San Gabriel Valley Tribune, the serious injury accident occurred on Norwalk Boulevard at Pantheon Street in Norwalk, the afternoon of June 5, 2011. The man was traveling southbound when his Harley Davidson veered out of control and hit the center median. He suffered severe head trauma in the crash. Officials are looking into what caused this motorcycle accident.
My thoughts and prayers are with the injured motorcyclist who is apparently in serious condition with a traumatic brain injury. I wish him the very best for a complete and speedy recovery.
Motorcycle Accident Statistics
According to California Highway Patrol’s 2008 Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System (SWITRS), one person was killed and 40 were injured in Norwalk motorcycle accidents. During that same year, there were 114 fatalities and 2,934 injuries reported as a result of Los Angeles County motorcycle crashes.
What Caused This Crash?
Based on this report, officials do not believe there were other vehicles involved. However, there are several unanswered questions here. Was there an eyewitness to the crash who can verify that no other vehicle caused the motorcycle to veer out of control? Is it possible that a dangerous or defective roadway contributed to the crash? Does this location have a history of injury accidents? Was there a vehicle defect or mechanical malfunction in the motorcycle that may have caused this accident? I trust officials are looking into these and other issues in order to determine what led to this major injury crash.
When someone else’s negligence causes an injury accident, the injured victim may pursue financial compensation for his or her loss by filing a personal injury claim. Damages that may be covered include lost wages, medical bills, hospitalization and rehabilitation costs. If catastrophic injuries have been suffered, the cost of long-term treatment and care can also be claimed as compensation.
