Motorcyclist crashes through car window in California accident

The intersection of Collins Street and Reseda Boulevard in Tarzana was closed for hours after two people died in a collision between a motorcycle and Honda sedan. Los Angeles police said that the motorcycle hit the driver's side of the car.

The 30-year-old man driving the motorcycle smashed through the car's window, hit the driver and landed on the passenger side. His motorcycle came to rest 50 feet away. At first, police were uncertain who had been driving which vehicle.

Police said the motorcyclist died on impact. The 60-year-old woman driving the Honda was also killed at the scene. She had been making a left turn when the motorcycle hit her car. Accident investigators said that the motorcycle had been speeding.

Wrongful death lawsuits sometimes arise from motor vehicle accidents. A person who has lost a loved one might be able to recover damages attributed to an accident caused by a driver who failed to operate a vehicle with a reasonable level of safety. An attorney could help the survivor determine if evidence from the accident can support a claim of negligence against another party.

The survivor could also discuss with an attorney the types of compensation recoverable through a wrongful death claim. Common categories of damages are funeral expenses, medical bills and lost household income. Even if the responsible party does not have insurance, that person might have assets that could be claimed through a lawsuit. An attorney can assist with settlement negotiations or represent the survivor in court if necessary.
