Motorcyclist killed in fatal crash in Florida

Being on a motorcycle is dangerous. Florida motorcyclists who are involved in car accidents are at risk of serious injuries and death, particularly because they do not have the same protection as being inside of an enclosed vehicle. In one such case, a motorcyclist was recently the victim of a fatal crash.

The accident happened on a recent Saturday afternoon in Pembroke Pines. According to reports, a motorcyclist was traveling the roadway when another vehicle turned left in front of his motorcycle. The man was unable to stop and lost control of his bike. The motorcycle slid and crashed into the car, and his head hit the rim on the passenger side of the vehicle.

His head injuries were severe, and he was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say that the biker was wearing a safety helmet. Authorities have not charged the other driver and are asking the public for any additional information about this tragedy.

The motorcyclist surely leaves family and loved ones who are grieving their loss. Depending on the outcome of this investigation, the family could have legal recourse to file a wrongful death claim against the other driver involved in the accident. If a claim is successfully handled, they could be reimbursed for funeral expenses and other losses associated with the fatal crash. The civil court system in Florida typically adjudicates these types of claims based upon evidence that the other party was negligent in a manner that caused or materially contributed to the death. An experienced personal injury attorney can help families in similar situations by answering questions concerning liability issues and by offering assistance to pursue claims for financial redress.
