Car turns into path of motorcycle sparking fatal accident

A fatal accident in Florida can come in many different ways, but one of the most frequent causes is a car accident. These crashes happen for a multitude of reasons and cause pain and turmoil in an emotional, personal and financial sense to the family that has suffered the loss of a loved one. Although it will not alleviate the pain they feel at the fatal car crash, a wrongful death legal filing can be useful in receiving compensation for all that was lost with the fatality.

A crash between a car and a motorcycle led to the death of a 25-year-old motorcyclist. The accident was compounded when the 21-year-old female driver of the car fled the scene with two children and another passenger riding with her. According to the law enforcement investigation, the car was heading south and the motorcyclist was heading north. At the intersection, there was a green signal for both. The motorcycle continued going straight and woman tried to turn left. She went into the path of the motorcycle causing a collision.

The woman and her adult passenger got out of the vehicle, looked at the rider as he lay on the ground, got back into the vehicle and fled. A witness to the incident followed and told them to return to the scene of the accident. The woman was placed under arrest for leaving the scene of a fatal accident. The rider died at the hospital.

So many issues come to the forefront after the loss of a loved one in a fatal car crash. From the funeral costs, to the loss of contribution to the family and household, and the absence of the person in the lives of loved ones, the damage can be substantial. In this accident, witnesses state that the car turned into the path of the motorcyclist making this an incident that did not need to happen. The family is fortunate that there was a witness who pursued the fleeing driver of the car. As the investigation continues, the motorcyclist's family needs to protect its interests by discussing a potential legal case with an attorney as soon as possible.
