Shortly after 3 p.m. on Wednesday, October 24, 55-year-old motorcyclist Ronald Allington was killed in a crash in an unincorporated area near Whittier. Allington collided with a Chevrolet Suburban at 10078 Mills Avenue near Reis Street. Emergency responders transported him to an area hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries a short time later.
“After a fatal accident, the family of the victim may hold the at-fault driver liable for their loss by filing a wrongful death claim,” explained California motorcycle injury lawyer James Ballidis.
Whittier accounted for 1 of the 71 fatalities and 22 of the 2,657 injuries suffered by motorcyclists in collisions that occurred in Los Angeles County in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. The state’s incidence of motorcycle rider fatalities decreased by 10.7 percent, from 394 in 2009 to 352 in 2010.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer our condolences to the family of Ronald Allington, the motorcyclist killed in the crash.
