Strict attention to motorcycle safety not always enough

Motorcyclists are aware of the dangers they face when hitting the open roads. For this reason, the majority of bikers take the time to become well-versed in all aspects of motorcycle safety. Sadly, not every accident will be prevented as was the case in one tragic Arizona crash.

Recently, police responded to the scene of a serious motorcycle crash. When first responders arrived, they found a 38-year-old man lying in the road who had been thrown from his bike. Officers reported that the rider was driving south along a local road when the driver of an eastbound vehicle apparently failed to stop at a red light. The driver of the car struck the motorcycle.

The rider suffered life-threatening injuries in the crash. He was taken to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries. The driver of the vehicle attempted to flee the scene of the crash on foot. He was later apprehended by police, taken into custody and charged with leaving the scene of a crash involving death. 

Arizona officials stated that the 23-year-old driver may have been impaired at the time of the crash. Though riders are aware of the importance of motorcycle safety, as this fatal crash illustrates, the actions of other motorists cannot always be anticipated. Those who have been seriously injured -- or surviving family members in the case of a fatal wreck -- may be able to recover financial losses through the state's civil justice system via a successfully navigated personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
