Southern California is in many ways offers dream riding for motorcylists. Temperate weather, virtual year-round sunshine and amazing scenery make it no wonder that so many people seek out riding in this part of the country. Sadly, bikers in California must navigate congested, busy roads and highways filled with sometimes negligent drivers who have little respect for those on two wheels.

When it may feel that bikers have little rights, it is important to hear of situations in which some sort of justice may come to fruition after a motorcycle accident.Today, that is just what is happening to some extent. In February of last year, a motorcyclist lost his life at the young age of only 28 when his bike collided with another vehicle. The accident happened near Placentia Canyon Road on the Sierra Highway.

The Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's department launched an investigation into the crash and after nearly an entire calendar year, the woman driving the other vehicle has been charged with vehicular manslaughter and gross negligence. After being taken into custody by authorities, the woman's bail was set at $25,000. It is not known is speed, drugs, alcohol, distraction or other factors were involved in the fatal crash.

Motorcyclists and their family members may want to reach out to an attorney after a crash as this may offer them the chance to find ways to seek compensation whether or not criminal charges are levied against those involved.
