California dump truck accident causes serious injuries

In California, there are many people who travel by motorcycle. Unfortunately, their safety may be at risk from drivers who fail to take appropriate safety precautions in order to protect users of non-traditional vehicles. Because motorcyclists may be more difficult to see, drivers must remain cautious. Unfortunately, one motorcyclist recently suffered serious injuries after a collision with a dump truck.  

The incident reportedly happened one afternoon on a day in early December. According to reports, the victim was pinned against a car by a dump truck. The dump truck, which did not remain at the scene, is believed to have then ran over the man's head and body.

While he is listed in stable condition, his injuries are serious. Reports indicate that he suffered 15 broken bones, a torn liver, contusions to his lungs, broken ribs and skull fractures. He has undergone multiple surgeries since the accident, and his recovery is expected to take months. The man's loved ones are hopeful that the driver of the dump truck will be discovered.

Many people in California are unprepared for the financial ramifications of serious injuries such as these. As a result of medical expenses and lost wages, they often find themselves struggling. Those injured as a result of another's negligence do have legal options available to them that could result in some relief. A successfully presented personal injury lawsuit could result in an award of damages. This outcome allows victims and their families to fully focus on their physical recovery rather than how they will pay their bills.
