Alabama motorcycle accidents too often prove fatal

Many people enjoy navigating the beautiful roadways of Alabama by way of motorcycle. Although such travel can be fun and exciting, when motorcycle accidents occur, the results are often devastating. In a recent incident, a terrible crash led to the arrest of one of the men involved.

Apparently, a 57-year-old motorcyclist was traveling an Alabama road on a recent Sunday evening. A 47-year-old man was reportedly behind the wheel of another vehicle. Following a collision between the car and the motorcycle, the man driving the car is said to have fled the scene.

The motorcyclist was seriously injured and taken to a nearby hospital for care. Sadly, he succumbed to his injuries the following day. Police officers ultimately caught up with the other driver who had allegedly failed to stop and render aid.

The allegedly at-fault driver is now sitting in a jail cell with a $15,000 bond set for his release. The penalties for leaving the scenes of motorcycle accidents or any other vehicle collisions can be quite severe. If a fatality has occurred, an immediate family member may take legal action against the driver deemed responsible. Although, it is difficult to think beyond one's grief in such situations, it is often helpful to seek compensation that can later be used to help pay funeral expenses, medical bills or other costs associated with an accident. The first logical step to take in the process would be to contact a personal injury attorney to seek clarification about the process and discuss the details of one's claim.
