Tireless Pursuit Of Your Goals

Alabama intersections prime locations for motorcycle accidents

Intersections are typically very dangerous places. Getting through one safely depends on many factors, especially if several motorists are present at crossroads at the same time. If each driver is alert, acting with caution and obeying all traffic laws, things should go well. If not, disaster can strike. Motorcycle accidents, pedestrian collisions and other mishaps often take place at Alabama intersections.

Just recently, two motorcyclists were traveling near one another in an eastbound lane. Something caused them to collide, and both drivers were thrown from their bikes. They landed in a westbound lane, and one of them was struck by a car moments later.

Sadly, after being hit by the car, the injured man died at the scene. Police then had their work cut out for them, apparently, because the man who had been driving the car at the time reportedly fled the area. Authorities located him some time later and placed him under arrest. He was criminally charged for the leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in injury. Since then, the man has posted bail and was released from jail.

Alabama motorcycle accidents often result in fatalities. When another motorist is deemed to have been the cause of a collision, an immediate family member of a deceased victim may pursue justice by filing a wrongful death claim in a civil court. Going through the process can be emotionally traumatic for a victim's loved ones. For this and many other reasons, it can be very helpful to rely on support from an experienced personal injury attorney.
