MERCED (September 26, 2017) – A motorcyclist was seriously injured in a traffic collision on Highway 59 Monday afternoon, according to Merced Sun Star.

The accident took place at about 4:12 p.m. near Canton Road. Highway 59 is also known as Los Banos Highway.

As per the article, California Highway Patrol said the crash occurred when a 43-year-old man was riding a 2009 Yamaha motorcycle behind a 2006 white Dodge Ram that was traveling north on Highway 59.

The driver of the Dodge, 43-year-old Aureliano Barajas-Valencia, reportedly stepped on the brake and veered to the right as the traffic began to slow.

CHP affirmed that the rider was transported to a regional hospital with injuries described as major. His name and condition at this time remained unknown.

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, property damage and other losses.

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.

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.
