Tehachapi Residents Killed in Tragic Highway 178 Motorcycle Accident

Bakersfield, CA (May 13, 2024) On Sunday afternoon, a 77-year-old man and a 75-year-old woman, both from Tehachapi, were killed in a horrific motorcycle crash on Highway 178.

According to California Highway Patrol (CHP), the fatal accident happened on westbound 178 near milepost marker 24.

Reports say that a motorcycle fell off a 50-foot embankment in the Kern River Canyon. Officials say that the man driving the motorcycle made an unsafe turn, causing the motorcycle driver to lose control of the bike. Consequently, the motorcycle veered off the roadway, and fell off a steep embankment and overturned.

Officials say that both the driver and the passenger suffered major injuries due to the crash and were both declared dead at the scene.

Authorities say that impairment may have been a factor in the crash. Officials are investigating further.

Tragedy Strikes in Motorcycle Crash on Highway 178

We at Sweet Lawyers understand that losing a loved one in a traffic accident is devastating. More so, when it is a wrongful death case. When this is the case, you need the help of legal experts to fight for you and get the justice your loved one deserves.

Legal experts play a crucial role in proving a wrongful death case by gathering evidence, conducting thorough investigations, and building a strong legal argument. They can also negotiate with insurance companies and represent the bereaved family in court, ensuring that their rights are protected and that they receive the compensation and justice they deserve.

However, know that in a wrongful death case, there is a time limit on which the bereaved can take legal action. These restrictions are called the statute of limitations. It will only allow you to file a wrongful death lawsuit for a certain amount of time, and when these expire, the legal claim is no longer valid. Thus, your loved ones can no longer file a lawsuit.

Missing the statute of limitations for a wrongful death lawsuit can have severe consequences. It means that the bereaved family will lose their opportunity to seek justice and hold the responsible party accountable. They will also be unable to receive the compensation they deserve for their loss, leaving them without the financial support they may desperately need.

Hence, the family must act promptly and consult with legal experts to ensure they do not miss this important deadline.

When you hire us, our attorneys will do their best to ensure you get the maximum settlement. They will speak to witnesses and analyze evidence.
