A motorcycle accident in Texas results in fatalities

Choosing a motorcycle as a mode of transportation can mean less protection for the driver and any passengers in the event of an accident. Since a motorcycle doesn't often the same protection as an enclosed vehicle, this often means that those involved in a motorcycle accident could have a greater chance of suffering serious injury or death. A recent accident in Texas resulted in the death of two people when a car allegedly pulled out in front of their motorcycle.

The couple was riding their motorcycle on a local street when the accident occurred. A sedan apparently pulled onto the street from a grocery store parking lot directly in front of them. The couple was thrown from their vehicle and landed in the road. The two victims were transported to a local hospital for treatment; unfortunately, however, both succumbed to their injuries the following day.

No information about the driver of the car has been released and it is unknown if they suffered any injuries in the incident. However, it was reported that the driver evidently didn't have a clear view of the street before entering the roadway, due at least in part to another vehicle turning into the parking lot. The investigation is still ongoing and it is unknown if any criminal charges will be filed against the driver of the car.

Those who have been injured or lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident may be entitled to seek legal recourse against the driver responsible. In a case like this, the family members left behind may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim in an effort to recoup any financial loss they have sustained due to the accident. If liability is affirmed, a Texas civil court may grant the family a monetary award that could aid them in paying any medical and funeral expenses that result and obtain any other damages deemed recoverable under the law.
