Texas motorcycle accident claims life of passenger

With warmer temperatures, many enthusiasts take to the roads on motorcycles. However, when a biker has a passenger, he or she sometimes does not realize how the difference in weight distribution can affect the motorcycle's performance and handling capabilities. A recent article describes a motorcycle accident in Texas that claimed the life of a passenger following the traumatic wreck.

At around 6:25 p.m. on an evening in late May, a 27-year-old woman was riding as a passenger on a motorcycle on Interstate 10 near Beaumont. According to the Texas Department of Safety, the motorcycle driver was traveling westbound on the interstate. He took an exit ramp, braking suddenly and severely for an unknown reason.

The sudden stop caused him to lose control of the bike, causing it to crash into the concrete wall beside the exit. The motorcycle flipped several times before coming to a rest, and the driver and passenger were both taken to a local hospital for treatment. The woman was tragically declared dead two days following the crash.

Surviving family members facing a similar devastating motorcycle accident in Texas may benefit from discussing their case with an attorney who is experienced in personal injury litigation. There are many expenses that may arise when a loved one dies as a result of negligence, such as medical bills, funeral costs and other financial considerations. An attorney who is practiced in this area of law can discuss the details of the case with the client, and recommend legal avenues available in order to seek reparation.
