A motorcycle accident takes the life of a Texas man

Understandably, motorcycles can be dangerous pieces of equipment. Even for the most experienced of motorcyclists, bikes are simply not built for absolute safety, primarily due to the lack of protection when a collision occurs with a larger, enclosed vehicle. The negligence of other drivers can result in severe injuries, and even death, for motorcyclists. This, unfortunately, appears to have been the case with a motorcycle accident in Texas recently.

A middle-aged man, riding his motorcycle eastbound don highway 44, was killed after losing control and being thrown from his motorcycle. He was reportedly trying to avoid a collision with an SUV that pulled out in front of him from a side road. The accident caused massive, fatal injuries to the victim.

Even though he had on a protective helmet and safety gear, the victim was pronounced dead at the scene due to his severe injuries. The SUV driver was questioned but not cited in the immediate aftermath of the accident. Nevertheless, that does not necessarily mean that she will escape criminal or civil responsibility for the fatal accident.

The decisions to be made and the processes that the victim's family will likely encounter through will most likely be uneasy, and the family may currently have more questions than answers. The surviving family members retain the right to file and litigate a claim for wrongful death as a result of this Texas motorcycle accident. These types of civil claims seeking monetary relief for damages sustained are appropriate when the evidence suggests that a fatality occurred due to the negligent or reckless actions of another party.
