Head-On Crash on Ave 9 near Rd 30 1/2 Kills Motorcyclist, Hospitalizes Another

Madera County, CA – According to KSEE, on Tuesday, February 13, 2024, in the vicinity of Avenue 9 and Road 30 1/2, a motorcyclist died in a two-vehicle collision.

Around 5:38 PM, the California Highway Patrol received calls informing them of the crash and arrived at the scene to find the motorcyclist dead. Initial investigations suggest the motorcycle had been traveling westbound when it crossed the center line.

An eastbound black Nissan Altima crashed into the motorcycle, and its driver was transported to the hospital for treatment. It remains unclear what may have caused the motorcyclist to enter the path of oncoming traffic. No information has been released about possible driver intoxication.

Personal Injury Claims

After a vehicular accident, in addition to emotional distress, victims and their families can be overwhelmed with the sudden financial burdens of medical bills, loss of income due to recovery time, and, in unfortunate circumstances, burial fees.

The responsibility for these costs should fall upon the driver responsible for such injuries and their insurance provider. However, insurance companies will try to minimize the compensation for any claim they cannot deny, which is why having the help of a skilled personal injury attorney can prove crucial in ensuring justice for victims of vehicular accidents.

Wrongful Death Claims

Establishing fault in a collision can depend on multiple factors. Helping to determine legal liability is one of the ways that a personal injury attorney can help grieving families recovering from the loss of a loved one in a traffic accident.

If it is determined that another driver holds responsibility for their loved one’s death, they may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim with the insurance provider of the at-fault driver. A wrongful death claim can provide compensation to help cover hospital fees, burial costs, and the loss of support for dependents of the deceased.
