At about 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 13, a 59-year-old male motorcyclist was injured in a collision with a Nissan sedan in the Kearny Mesa area of San Diego. The 28-year-old male driver of the sedan pulled out in front of the rider at the intersection of Clairemont Mesa Boulevard and Shawline Street. The motorcyclist was unable to avoid a collision. Emergency responders transported the rider to a hospital to receive treatment for a broken leg, along with his female passenger, who sustained minor knee injuries. Authorities are investigating the motorcycle accident.
“If a motorcyclist is injured in a collision that is attributable to the negligence of another motorist, the rider may hold the motorist liable for the expense of his or her recovery,” explained California motorcycle accident lawyer James Ballidis.
Throughout San Diego County, traffic accidents claimed the lives of 24 motorcyclists and injured another 1,044, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Across the state, motorcyclist fatalities increased 15 percent, from 352 in 2010 to 414 in 2011.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the motorcyclist and passenger who were injured in the collision with the Nissan.
