Motor vehicle accidents: Motorcyclist killed in crash with car

Motorcyclists in Arizona enjoy the feeling of freedom while riding their bikes on the open roads. However, a significant level of risk comes with this pleasure because bikers typically have little to protect them in the event of motor vehicle accidents. Many of the dangers that motorcyclists face are caused by the carelessness or negligence of vehicle operators.

A 20-year-old man lost his life in a collision that occurred in Phoenix on a recent Tuesday. According to an accident report, police officers responded to an accident scene at about 5 p.m. Reportedly, they arrived to find the critically injured motorcyclist who had been ejected when he was struck by a car.

Investigators reported that a 42-year-old driver of an oncoming car failed to yield as she turned left into a private driveway. They say she turned directly into the path of the motorcycle, causing the collision that threw him from the bike. Even though the rider wore a helmet, he suffered life-threatening injuries and died later at a regional hospital. Authorities determined that neither speed nor alcohol were factors in this accident.

Victims of motor vehicle accidents in Arizona -- or the surviving family members of deceased victims -- might have grounds to file personal injury or wrongful death claims if the crashes were caused by the negligence of other parties. Financial relief may be pursued for recovery of medical expenses, end-of-life costs (when applicable) and other monetary and emotional damages. The guidance and support of an attorney who is experienced in this field of the law is available to ease the process.
