Motorcycle Collides With U.S. Postal Service Truck Resulting In Death

Tragedy struck in Santa Barbara as a fatal motorcycle accident occurred on Marina Drive. The California Highway Patrol is currently investigating the incident which involved a local man in his 40s colliding with a U.S. Postal Service truck. Witnesses claimed that the motorcyclist was travelling at a high speed although Marina Drive is known for its curving streets. Sadly, the biker, identified as Michael Joseph Figone, did not survive the accident and was pronounced dead at the scene. The incident resulted in a two-hour closure of Marina Drive as authorities conducted their investigation. If you have any information, no matter how small it may seem, please don’t hesitate to contact them. Your information could prove crucial in helping law enforcement piece together what happened. The Santa Barbara Area office of the California Highway Patrol is available Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm to take your call. 

How A Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Helps Your Case

It’s within your rights to handle your legal motorcycle accident case by yourself, but it’s a stressful and risky thing to do. An insurance company will typically toss out a lowball offer when they know you don’t have a lawyer. They’ll assume you don’t know what you’re doing and will say they owe you less because you’re not paying a lawyer.

Plus, an insurance company usually offers compensation for your past medical bills, but what about your future treatment? Your mental health counseling? Your lost days of work? The value of your motorcycle? This could easily be tens of thousands of dollars, if not more.

Your pain and suffering should be valued. Compensation for pain and suffering is protected by California law and should never be undervalued by an insurance company that’s pressing you for a quick settlement.
