Fatality reported after tragic motorcycle accident

Texas roadways are no strangers to motorcycles. With a recent rise in the temperatures, many motorcyclists are hitting the pavement to enjoy the brief period of beautiful weather. With an increased presence of motorcycles on the roads, the likelihood of someone being involved in a motorcycle accident increases. Unfortunately, a local man lost his life over the weekend after his bike was struck by a vehicle.

According to police reports, the motorcyclist was struck by another vehicle after purportedly failing to yield right-of-way before turning. The victim was found by police with serious injuries and transported to a local hospital where he tragically succumbed to his injuries. Police also reported the victim was not wearing a helmet.

Before police arrived on the scene, the driver of the other vehicle fled the accident, prompting many unanswered questions. If authorities find the suspect, he or she may face criminal charges for leaving the scene of an accident with injuries. In addition, the family of the victim may be entitled to monetary damages by pursuing a wrongful death claim against the driver. Before filing a claim in the Texas civil justice system, an experienced personal injury attorney would be able to assess the merits of their claim and guide the family through the process should the investigation prove fault of the other driver.

Collisions between motorcyclists and other vehicles often end in tragedy. Proving fault in a motorcycle case can be complex, but with the right legal representation, Texas families adversely affected by a motorcycle accident may be able to receive the compensation they deserve to recover after such a tragic event. Any received compensation can help alleviate the costs of any medical care or funeral expenses as a result of the accident.
