Solano County Fire Department officials along with the paramedics responded to the scene and attended to the rider who suffered unspecified injuries as a result of the wreck. The name and condition of the patient at this time remained unknown.
Meanwhile, the driver of the car which allegedly cut off the motorcycle failed to stop and left. Authorities are gathering more information and evidence to locate the hit-and-run motorist.
Personal Injury Lawyer
Most traffic accidents which involve a motorist who flees the scene can be subjected to serious criminal charges, especially when a particular crash causes serious injuries to another person. Such circumstances are likely considered as “felony hit-and-run,” leaving the victim a legal right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the suspect.
Drivers who are involved in car collisions are obliged to stop and provide assistance to the injured individuals and to cooperate with the authorities. In this case, the motorist took off and left the motorcyclist wounded in the roadway. The motorcycle rider has likely a right to pursue a claim seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
