Wrongful death claim possible following Texas motorcycle accident

It is a sad reality that motorcycle accidents often have tragic outcomes. For Texas residents who have lost a loved one in such an accident, legal recourse may be available. Wrongful death claims, if successfully litigated, can provide surviving family members with monetary relief for the losses these accidents can create.

Recently, a motorcyclist suffered fatal injuries in a multi-vehicle accident in northern Texas. According to police, the driver of an SUV, a 31-year-old woman, crashed into the back-end of a car, causing the car to enter northbound lanes. A motorcyclist, a 49-year-old male, was unable to avoid the wreckage and crashed. He died before medical aid could be rendered.

A police report indicates that the driver of the SUV failed to adequately control the speed of her vehicle. She suffered unspecified injuries in the collision and was transported for care to a nearby medical facility. It is unknown if any other formal charges are pending in this matter or if an arrest has been made.

The victim's surviving family members, if they choose, may file a wrongful death claim against the driver deemed responsible for this accident. This type of claim may result in compensation for any financial losses they have endured as a result of their loved one's death. These losses may include funeral expenses, lost wages and any other monetary deficits encountered as a result of the crash. If the driver believed responsible for this accident is found negligent to the satisfaction of a Texas civil court, a monetary judgment can be awarded.
