Los Gatos Crash with Motorcycle on Highway 17 Tuesday, October 24thMotorcyclist Badly Injured in Los Gatos Accident on Highway 17 South

LOS GATOS (October 24, 2017)- According to the California Highway Patrol, a motorcyclist was badly injured following a collision on southbound Highway 17 just south of Summit Road.

CHP officials received a phone call notifying them of a collision between a white vehicle and a motorcyclist at precisely 7:39 a.m.

The dispatch report read that the driver of a white vehicle struck the motorcycle rider who ended up within northbound traffic lanes.

It was noted that the white vehicle began smoking shortly following the crash before eventually engulfing in flames.

The fire department and paramedics were instantly contacted and arrived at the scene to extinguish the fire and transport the motorcyclist who suffered major injuries to Santa Clara Valley Medical Center.

Meanwhile, there were no details provided indicating whether or not the driver of the white vehicle suffered injuries.

Per the California Highway Patrol, all of southbound Highway 17 remained shut down for approximately an hour and a half while police officials perused the scene to collect and gather evidence to determine what exactly happened here and why.


Personal Injury Lawyer

A forensic examination of both the motorcycle and the vehicle, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the accident. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicles such as point of impact, final resting positions of each vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, injured victims who are not held liable for causing an accident may pursue a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver where they may seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, loss of income from being out of work due to injury, 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. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

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.
