Motorcycle accident claims the life of Texas woman

During the summer, many people throughout the country choose to enjoy the temperate conditions and travel via motorcycle. Because riders are inherently exposed, any accident can often be serious or potentially fatal. Recently, a motorcycle accident on a highway in Texas claimed the life of a motorcycle passenger.

The accident occurred on Monday, July 11 at approximately 12:30 a.m. A man was driving westbound on Katy Freeway near the West Loop in Houston. As he took an exit ramp, he lost control of his motorcycle and hit a retaining wall along the highway.

The passenger on the motorcycle was ejected during the collision and fell over the wall. As this was on an elevated area of Interstate 10, his passenger dropped 40 feet onto the freeway below. The motorcyclist drove to her and attempted to provide aid to her while waiting for medical personnel. Paramedics arrived and transported the woman to a local medical center, where she later passed away. According to police, the driver was initially detained at the accident site but was later released.

At this point, no criminal charges have been filed. Regardless of criminal charges, civil claims could be made against the driver by surviving family members. Those in Texas who are facing a similar fatal motorcycle accident may benefit from discussing their situations with an attorney who is experienced in personal injury law. Attorneys who focus in this area of law will be in the best position to discuss any potential legal resources that surviving family members may have available to them.
