Michael Johnson Victim in Tuesday Lancaster Motorcycle Accident

LANCASTER (July 18, 2017)- According to the Antelope Valley Times, a deadly collision between a motorcycle and a big rig was reported early Tuesday morning at Avenue I and 70th Street.

California Highway Patrol officials received a phone call informing them of a collision at 9:18 a.m.

Per the accident report, the driver of a big rig, Eric Seekins, 36, of Lancaster, was headed northbound on 70th Street before pulling directly into the path of a 72-year-old man identified as Michael Johnson who had been riding a 91′ Harley westbound on Avenue I.

Wrongful Death

Police officials have disclosed so far that Eric Seekins had come to a complete stop before entering the intersection where the Michael Johnson struck the back trailer hitched onto the back of the big rig.

The Lancaster man sadly did not survive and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Seekins suffered minor injuries following the collision, per the AV times. It is unclear if he sought out medical treatment.

California Highway Patrol is currently investigating the collision as the intersection remains closed off at Avenue I and 70th Street for approximately 2.5 hours.

A forensic examination of both the big rig and the motorcycle, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the accident. Based on the report, signs point to the big rig driver possibly being at fault as Mr. Eric Seekins drove into the path of Michael Johnson who may or may not have had the right of way. Other potential factors will be looked into as well including whether or not either the driver or the motorcyclist was under the influence at the time of the accident? Was either driver driving recklessly or over the speed limit prior to impact? What were the road conditions and how was the lighting in the vicinity of where the accident occurred?  Each of these factors will be assessed allowing police officials to draw up a final conclusion.

Most deadly accidents are preventable tragedies. If a negligent party has disregarded the safety of others has led to the death of a family member or close friend, it is likely you may have the right to a wrongful death lawsuit. If you have recently lost a loved one and you believe another person is at fault, we urge you to contact Johnson Attorneys Group today to speak with one of our experienced Lancaster wrongful death lawyers at 800-235-6801.

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.

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.
