Recently, an accident claimed the life of a motorcyclist in Malibu, when a driver leaving a popular restaurant, turned into its path. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Malibu / Lost Hills Station shut down eastbound lanes of the Pacific Coast Highway for hours and investigated this fatal accident. Although the driver was tested at the scene for alcohol, the Sheriff believes that unfamiliarity of the driver with the area, may have been the cause of this motorcycle accident.
In such fatal motorcycle accidents, auto accidents, pedestrian accidents, or truck accidents, the police agencies conduct a thorough investigation with an eye towards possible criminal conduct, such as reckless driving, drunk driving, or driving under the influence of drugs. However, it is the job of an experienced personal injury attorney, to conduct such investigation to reveal who the responsible party or parties maybe. While the family of a deceased motorist or pedestrian will undoubtedly be grieving after such a tragic event, they should contact a qualified aggressive injury lawyer to handle this type of serious case immediately.
