The number of deaths from motorcycle accidents climbs

Many motorcycle riders own a bike because they love the feeling of freedom when they are out on the open road. Sometimes that feeling of freedom is overshadowed by serious injury or even death from motorcycle accidents. Statistics from the Colorado Department of Transportation show that the number of deaths from motorcycle accidents has risen dramatically in just the past year. Sadly, that number increased after a recent accident took the life of a 69-year-old man.

Police reports disclose the motorcycle was headed west when the driver of a sedan pulled out in front of it in an attempt to turn into the eastbound lane. The motorcycle hit the side of the sedan, causing the motorcycle to slide to the center median and the rider to be thrown from the bike. The rider was not wearing a helmet.

The driver of the sedan was not injured, but the son of the motorcycle rider reported that his father died from his injuries three hours after being airlifted to a major medical facility. Local police have teamed with state patrol troopers in the investigation, though alcohol or drugs were not considered to be a factor in the accident. The report did not state whether there were charges pending.

Victims who are injured in accidents will often want to seek financial compensation in a personal injury lawsuit. In the case of a fatality, the surviving loved ones of the deceased may choose to file a wrongful death suit. Whether from motorcycle accidents, car accidents or any other type of motor vehicle accident, those in Colorado who have been injured because someone else was negligent have every right to pursue justice by seeking a monetary judgment for damages incurred.
