The sunny weather in Florida can make for ideal conditions for motorcycle riding. While operating a motorcycle can be exhilarating, it also is quite risky due to the nature of the vehicle. Motorcycles are smaller and harder to see than other vehicles, which often leads to accidents where motorcycles are struck by cars and trucks. A recent accident in Palm Beach left one dead when his motorcycle was hit by another vehicle.
The accident happened on a weekday afternoon. The motorcyclist was traveling on 10th Avenue when he was struck by another vehicle. The impact of the crash caused the motorcyclist to be thrown from the bike. He died from his injuries.
The driver of the other vehicle claims to have not seen the motorcycle before the crash. Palm Beach County Sherriff’s Office is investigating the crash to determine which driver, if either, was at fault. At this time, no charges have been filed against the driver of the car.
Where to turn for help after an accident
Motorcyclists must use extra caution when driving on highways and city streets, but even the safest driver can still be in an accident. When someone is seriously injured or killed in an accident, and the crash was caused by a negligent driver, the victim or their family has the right to pursue legal action through a civil lawsuit. A successful lawsuit can provide compensation for medical bills, funeral costs, and other expenses. A Florida personal injury attorney can provide valuable information on pursuing a case against the driver who caused the crash.
