California semi truck driver collides with motorcyclist

Although any vehicle accident can have tragic consequences, when a semi truck is involved, the risk of death or serious injuries is heightened due to the sheer size of trucks. Whether you drive the busy streets of San Francisco or any other part of the state, you should always be vigilant and aware of the problems that can arise from a truck accident. There are a number of factors that can cause an accident, such as truck driver fatigue and overloaded trucks. Regardless of the cause, the frequency of these collisions should be reduced.

After being struck by a semi truck that was attempting to turn, a police officer was knocked off of his motorcycle and hit the ground. He was flown to the hospital and it is believed that he will survive his serious injuries. The officer has been working for the police department for 17 years and was not responding to an urgent call when the accident took place.

The cause of the accident, which occurred in Ontario, California, has not been established. The truck driver was not injured and did not receive a citation, although he could be cited once authorities have completed the investigation.

Whether someone loses their life or is seriously injured, the ramifications of being involved in a truck accident can be devastating. Survivors could have difficulty with their serious injuries, which can interrupt life significantly, and also struggle to pay hospital bills. When someone loses their life, their families could not only be overburdened with emotional pain, but funeral costs and other expenses as well. Anyone who is dealing with these issues could find it helpful to talk with a lawyer.

Client Reviews

    I retained Ilya Frangos of Galine, Frye, Fitting & Frangos on a business litigation matter involving a frivolous lawsuit filed in federal court. Ilya guided me through the case and helped make sure that I understood the process… He always took the time to answer all my questions and helped put my mind at ease. I would highly recommend him and this firm!


    I called Mr Frye after my wife had passed away… John listened to my case over the phone, after aggreeing to represent me, handled everything from there… I have already recommended Mr Frye to a friend for help with a similiar case and would without reserve recommend him to anybody. He came highly recommended as an expert in these type cases, and I believe he demonstrated this personally.


    Chantel Fitting is as good as it gets. If you have been injured, need help and cant get what you know you deserve from one of the big insurance companies, then you have got to call Chantel. She will fight for you like it was her that was hurt… She cares. Call her. You wont be sorry you did.

    I was fortunate enough to have been represented and retained by this law firm for my injuries sustained by an under insured motorist. I must say Chantel Fitting and Illya Frangos went above and beyond trying to resolve my case… I would highly recommend this law firm and stop shopping around if you are looking for the best, as this is as good as it gets.
