Motorcycle accident results in man's death

Riding a motorcycle along Texas roads may be an invigorating experience that also comes with some serious risks. In fact, regardless of how cautious a rider may be, a serious motorcycle accident can occur with no warning. Recently, one man became the latest victim of a car versus motorcycle collision.

Police reported to an urgent call summoning them to the scene of a serious wreck. According to the investigators, a 58-year-old woman was driving her vehicle along a local road with her 59-year-old passenger. She purportedly approached an intersection and came to a stop. She then proceeded into the intersection where her car collided with a motorcycle.

The 29-year-old man aboard the bike was dislodged from the seat by the force of the collision. His body was then propelled several feet before hitting cables attached to a utility pole. He was killed at the scene due to his critical injuries. Texas police reported that impairment was suspected, and the woman failed to complete standard field sobriety tests successfully. She now faces a charge of intoxication manslaughter. 

The victim's family members are now forced to adjust to life without their loved one after this tragic motorcycle accident. Along with the emotional pain they are enduring, they may also have sustained significant monetary damages due to final expenses and the sudden loss of his income, along with other damages. Families in these circumstances may choose to consult with a personal injury attorney to discuss the feasibility of filing a civil suit. Such litigation is often pursued when the actions or negligence on the part of another party leads to serious or fatal injuries and associated financial damages.
