Wrongful Death Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
All drivers have a legal duty to take reasonable precautions for the safety of other drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and others they might encounter. Our Houston motorcycle accident lawyers emphasize that when a passenger is injured or killed because a driver was speeding or failed to take due care regarding safety, that passenger and his or her family may have legal rights to compensation following the accident.
As an example of what can occur, a Texas City woman was killed on March 19th when the bike on which she was a passenger crashed into an SUV ahead. Reports say that the driver of the Harley Davidson crashed into the rear of a Ford Expedition as it stopped and tried to turn at FM 1765 and 31st Street. Both the male driver and the female passenger were ejected from the motorcycle. The woman died from her injuries, and the driver suffered serious injuries. Texas City police were continuing to investigate and indicated that driver inattention and a failure to control the bike’s speed might have caused the accident. (thepolicenews.net, 3/20/14) Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the woman who died from the terrible crash and with the injured driver.
Texas law may allow the family of the victim to seek compensation in the woman’s needless death. In complex accident scenes, there may actually be multiple parties liable for the collision. The driver of the motorcycle as well as the driver of the SUV might be at fault. It’s important for victims and their families to have an experienced Texas City motorcycle accident attorney investigate the case on their behalf to determine how many are at fault and to what degrees they might be at fault. An able attorney will also know how to gather and preserve relevant evidence to help establish the family’s valid claim to compensation.
