Pursuing Justice For Accident Victims In Indiana

Motorcyclist dies after serious truck accident in Indiana

It's never good news when you hear that a motorcyclist has been hit by a car. In these cases, there can be shared faults, but the loss of a life trumps all. When a person doesn't pay attention and causes an accident, it's important that he or she is held accountable for that error.

In this case, a crash that is all-too-common took place. A motorcyclist was killed in the crash when a truck turned into his path, according to an Oct. 13 news report. The 34-year-old man was traveling on Daniel Burnham Drive when the Ford F-150 entered his path. The motorcyclist collided with the vehicle's passenger-side door. This forced the truck off the roadway and resulted in the motorcyclist's fatal injuries.

The police reported that both drivers had suspended licenses at the time of the collision. They have reported that they are still investigating but intend to forward the case to the county prosecutor.

In situations like this, one party may be more at fault than the other. It's important that the individual who is to blame for causing the accident faces penalties, even if the other party was also breaking the law. The fact that two people break a law doesn't mean that a collision or injury should fall back on the person who suffered. In many cases, there is still an opportunity to file a claim, even if you are partially liable for a crash or did something that put you in harm's way because of an error in judgment. Your attorney can help you determine if you are able to file a claim in your situation.
