Fatal Motorcycle Accident in Brea Under Investigation

A fatal motorcycle accident in Brea this week left one person fatally injured, and his friend on a different motorcycle was sent to UCI Medical Center with serious injuries.  The driver of a pickup truck involved in the accident was also transported to UCI Medical Center with less serious injuries.

The accident occurred when the pickup truck made a U-turn across double yellow lines on Tonner Canyon Road according to officers of the California Highway Patrol.  The pickup truck allegedly turned into the path of the motorcyclists leaving them nowhere to go, and both ultimately ran into the side of the pickup truck.

If the initial reports in this case are correct, the actions of the pickup truck should result in a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the motorcyclist who lost his life.  The other motorcyclist who was seriously injured may face permanent injuries, resulting in the need for a complex legal case involving a “Life Care Plan” that will provide for all medical care and therapy for the rest of his life, as well as modifications to his home and vehicles, equipment and replacement of lost wages, income and remuneration for having to suffer through the experience.

I have more than 40 years of experience in these types of cases here in Orange County, and I know that the motorcyclist’s families are in a state of shock and deep sadness.  After working with families in wrongful death and serious injury cases, I can tell you that the most important issues are maximizing the effectiveness our legal expertise and experience to provide the best possible outcome in their cases.  It is also important to lift the burden of having to communicate with endless insurance and legal inquiries from their shoulders so that they can focus on supporting one another through this terrible time.
