Motorcycle accidents: Man dies in fatal crash

Most motorcycle riders can likely recount close encounters and near misses with larger motor vehicles. Some riders are fortunate to never experience a crash, but many have not been as fortunate and have been involved in serious motorcycle accidents. Sadly, one man recently died after a crash in Florida that occurred between a sedan and his Harley Davidson motorcycle.

The 71-year old man was traveling east when he approached an intersection. Accident investigators believe that the man came to a stop as required and proceeded to make a left turn when the accident occurred; investigators believe it was the man's time to turn. The 25-year-old driver of a sedan allegedly pulled out in front of the motorcycle resulting in the accident.

The driver of the sedan did not suffer any injuries as a result of the crash, but the motorcycle rider suffered serious injuries. His injuries were so severe, he was not able to be transported to a medical facility for treatment. The man was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. Apparently, the motorcycle rider was not wearing a helmet, which is not required under some conditions in Florida for individuals over the age of 21.

Unfortunately, many motorcycle accidents are fatal, as in this tragedy. Because of the stereotype often assigned to motorcycle riders, many families find the assistance of a personal injury attorney to be of assistance when filing insurance claims and/or pursuing wrongful death claims. Some families may choose to pursue a lawsuit in civil court against party or parties deemed culpable based on the gathered evidence.
