Regardless of where a person lives, he or she may have multiple transportation options. Many in California choose to travel on a motorcycle. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents can often have devastating consequences as they provide few physical barriers to protect riders. In fact, Southern California Gas Co. recently settled a personal injury lawsuit filed against it after one of its drivers allegedly caused a serious accident.
The incident happened last year. Reports indicate that the victim, a member of the U.S. Air Force was stopped at a red light on a motorcycle when he was struck from behind by a SoCal pickup truck. The driver reportedly did not stop, dragging the motorcyclist, until other drivers surrounded the vehicle.
