Anyone involved in a motorcycle accident should have their investigative team evaluate all aspects surrounding the collision. This includes reviewing:
- Driver accident history
- Police accident report
- Any testing of driver for drugs and alcohol
- Any history of driver with drugs and alcohol
- Phone and texting records of the driver
- All eyewitness accounts of the accident
- Accident history on I-5 Freeway
- Evaluation is highway signage is clear and up to code
- Evaluation is pavement markings are clear and up to code
- Inspection of roadway conditions
- Any video evidence of the crash

Car drivers always have a duty to always exercise safety precautions to avoid hitting motorcyclists.
