A Murrieta man who was involved in a serious motorcycle accident several weeks ago died last week from injuries sustained in the crash. The day of the accident, the man was riding his motorcycle northeast of San Diego in Aguanga when he apparently lost control of his motorcycle.
He was attempting to make a right turn when he lost control of his motorcycle. His cycle then left the road and crashed into a tree. The man suffered serious head injuries in the crash, even though he was wearing his helmet.
He was flown to a hospital for treatment after the accident. The motorcyclist reportedly died last week at Inland Valley Medical Center in Wildomar, near Murrieta.
This man’s family has likely experienced difficulties accepting his sudden death. Watching a family member struggle to recover from a motorcycle crash for several weeks may be extremely difficult. However, to then lose one’s loved one after potentially hoping for weeks that he would recover would probably be even more challenging.
It is unclear why exactly the man lost control of his motorcycle when he was turning. It is possible that the road was in poor condition and rocks on the road or an unlevel road caused him to lose control of his motorcycle.
As this man spent several weeks in the hospital after the crash, his family is likely facing expensive medical bills. If a person’s family is unable to cover medical bills after an accident, seeking compensation may be helpful. While compensation for a personal injury or wrongful death suit is not possible for all families to attain, it could be worthwhile to look into it.
