California car accidents: motorcycle injured in Oceanside crash

Oceanside is a coastal city in California offering scenic beach views for residents and visitors alike. Many enjoy the outdoors by walking or riding bicycles or motorcycles in the beautiful locale. However, car accidents can occur when others act negligently. A motorcyclist was recently injured when he was struck by an alleged drunk driver.

According to police, a 59-year-old man was driving his pickup truck westbound near an Oceanside intersection. He pulled in front of a northbound motorcycle, driven by a 25-year-old man. The motorcyclist had a green list, according to officers from the Oceanside Police Department.

Reports state that the motorcyclist attempted to stop. However, he struck the driver's side of the pickup truck. The rider was thrown from the motorcycle. The motorcyclist was transported to a nearby hospital after paramedics and police discovered him unconscious and injured. The extent of his injuries has not been reported.

The Oceanside Police Department's Major Accident Investigation Team is conducting an investigating the crash. The truck driver was not injured in the accident. He was arrested on the charge of suspicion of felony driving under the influence with serious injuries.

When California residents have been the victims in similar car accidents, they may choose to file a personal injury claim. A successful claim can compensate an individual for hospital costs and other medical expenses. An award could include compensation for lost wages or other pain and suffering. An experienced attorney can work with clients to obtain a favorable result in the litigation process. A dedicated legal team will evaluate the situation and recommend the best course of action for a successful outcome.
