Illegal u-turn attempt kills motorcyclist

| Jun 23, 2020 | Motorcycle Accidents |

Motorcyclists may often feel as though they need to be extra-vigilant while on the roads knowing the risks that motorists may pose to them. The safety offered by traditional cars, trucks and SUVs may cause some motorists to fall into a sense of complacency when it comes to their position relative to others on the road around them. Thus, motorcyclists may think they have no choice but to compensate for that.

Yet that mindset seemingly places all of the responsibility for accident avoidance on motorcyclists. Motorists also need to be aware of the need to share the road with motorcyclists (and thus be more mindful of where they are on the road). A failure to do so can have catastrophic consequences.

Drunk driver kills motorcyclists

This fact was on full display in a recent accident that occurred outside of Las Vegas. Eyewitnesses to the accident reported that as a motorcyclist approached a vehicle pulled over on the side of the road, the driver of the car suddenly pulled out in front of him in an attempt to make a u-turn. The two vehicles collided, sending the motorcyclist flying off his bike. He later died from the injuries he sustained in the accident.

Authorities subsequently reported the driver of the car to be drunk at the time of the accident. He now faces charges for DUI and trying to make an illegal u-turn; no word yet on whether there will be any charges related to the motorcyclist’s death.

Holding motorists accountable

Despite ad campaigns prompting motorists to “start seeing motorcycles,” accidents like the one detailed above continue to happen. The families and friends of the motorcyclists killed or injured in these collisions often have little choice but to seek compensation to accommodate those losses. An experienced attorney may be a valuable ally during this process.
