The weather in Louisiana has been excellent for enjoying the outdoors. When the weather is favorable, more riders are out on roadways on motorcycles and bicycles. This, of course, can lead to serious and fatal bike and motorcycle accidents. Sadly, a recent accident left one motorcycle rider dead and the other one injured.
According to police reports, two individuals were enjoying a ride on a motorcycle when the crash occurred. Another motor vehicle operated by a 79-year-old woman apparently pulled into the path of the motorcycle. The motorcycle crashed into the side of the woman's vehicle.
Sadly, one of the riders, a 44-year-old man, died as a result of his injuries. The severity of the other rider's injuries was not reported. The woman believed responsible for the crash did not suffer any injuries, though she may face charges related to the accident.
Sadly, motorcycle accidents often result in serious or fatal injuries. Treatments for injuries can cripple the finances of an accident victim and/or the victim's family. Many victims, including the surviving families of deceased victims, find a Louisiana personal injury attorney helpful when processing the aftermath of a crash with insurance providers and/or other parties to the accident. While achieving compensation will not change the outcome of the crash, it may help to relieve the financial pressure that typically results from these kinds of tragedies. After reviewing the details of a particular incident, an attorney may recommend that a civil lawsuit be filed against the party or parties deemed responsible for the accident and death/s or injuries that resulted.
