The motorcycle was found down in the westbound lanes while the rider was ended up on the right hand shoulder as a result of the crash. The motorcyclist was transported to a nearby hospital with major injuries that were considered as non-life threatening.

His name and condition at this time remained unknown.

Meanwhile, CHP did not mention whether the driver of the car involved stopped and remained at the scene following the wreck. The cause of the incident is still under investigation.


Factors such as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, speed, distracted driving or negligence often cause traffic incidents. These auto accidents usually results in serious injuries, or worse death. It is then necessary that motorists practice certain precautionary measures and follow traffic laws while traversing the major roads, such as the highways, as they are considered as one of the most dangerous routes in the state.

In this case, authorities are still gathering more information and evidence to determine liability. If the investigation proves that a negligent party has disregarded the safety of others and has led to the injury of another individual, the victim may have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit seeking compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
