Motorcyclist Dies in 3-vehicle Accident on I-80 in Sacramento: What You Need to Know

Motorcycle accidents are often devastating. Because motorcyclists don’t have the kind of protection that the drivers of cars, SUVs, trucks, and buses have, they are at greater risk of injury and death when a collision occurs. One motorcycle lost his life in a traffic accident in Sacramento.

If you were the victim of a motorcycle accident that was not your fault, we will fight for your rights!

What Happened, According to the California Highway Patrol

In Sacramento, a deadly motorcycle accident was recorded after the rider collided with two other vehicles. The fatal crash happened near the transition ramp to Interstate 5 on Interstate 80.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) stated that the collision involved a motorcycle, a sedan, and a big rig and killed at least one person.

Motorcyclist Dies in 3-vehicle Accident on I-80 in Sacramento: What Caused the Fatal Accident?

No more details were given, but it was stated that the rider, who officers pronounced dead on the scene, was a 38-year-old man from Los Angeles.

Authorities are looking into how the accident happened to establish its cause and apportion blame. Officials do not, however, suspect that either drugs or alcohol played a role in the deadly collision.

Why Was the Motorcyclist Killed in the Crash in Sacramento on Interstate 80?

A motorcyclist is most likely to suffer severe injuries or pass away in collisions with semi-trucks and motor vehicles. Due to these enormous commercial vehicles’ size and weight, even minor collisions could have catastrophic results for people who are on two wheels.

This is because motorcycles don’t have the same safety features as cars, SUVs, and other large vehicles.

As a result of the force of the collision, motorcyclists are more likely to suffer serious injuries or die in a crash.

A Motorcycle Accident Attorney Can Help to Investigate the Case

An attorney often conducts an investigation to establish liability and ascertain the cause of a crash that resulted in a motorcyclist being killed. The gathering of evidence throughout the investigative process involves consulting a variety of sources, such as law enforcement officers, eyewitnesses, video footage of the scene, and so much more.

Remember that the case that establishes the other driver’s negligence caused the collision and proves their legal liability for paying damages is then constructed using all this material.

Were You Injured in a Motorcycle Accident? We Can Help!

In many cases, the motorcyclist killed was following the rules of the road and upholding other motorists’ right to safe roadways.

To ensure that your rights are upheld, you should speak with an expert attorney if you or someone close to you was hurt in a motorcycle accident that resulted in a fatality involving a big rig or other vehicles.

By bringing a wrongful death claim, a lawyer can assist you in obtaining the justice and recompense you need. The accident attorney’s responsibility is to determine how the accident occurred, gather evidence to support your family’s claim, estimate damages, and pursue restitution.
