WHO IS RESPONSIBLE?
Striking debris on the road, especially for those on motorcycles can result in catastrophic injuries. It is important that an immediate investigation begin to determine what the debris was, where it came from, how long it was there and if anyone knew of the debris. Often times, vehicles can drop items or loose pieces break off and end up on the road. It is absolutely mandatory that a law firm who has experience dealing with these cases be consulted immediately.
WHAT CAN YOU DO IF YOU STRIKE LOOSE GRAVEL OR DEBRIS?
If you or a loved one have been injured in a crash by striking loose debris or gravel on a road or highway, there are important steps that you must immediately take to protect your rights. Caltrans and the California Highway Patrol have the responsibility of making sure our roadways are safe.
