Motorcycle drivers love riding their bikes, as it affords a feeling of freedom on the road other drivers may not understand. However, riding a motorcycle can be hazardous, mainly due to those other drivers. A motorcycle accident may happen when car and truck drivers are not vigilant, not noticing a biker who may be in their path. Charges have been brought against a 21-year-old Georgia woman after she caused a deadly motorcycle accident.
An 18-year-old high school student was riding his bike when the woman’s car hit him. She was making a left-hand turn and did not yield to the oncoming motorcycle. He was transported to an area hospital after being thrown from his bike and died not long after his arrival.
The woman was not arrested at the time of the accident but just recently turned herself in. She was charged with vehicular homicide and failure to yield. At the time of a report, she remained in the county jail with no disclosure on an amount for bail.
A family who was anticipating an upcoming graduation is now having to plan a funeral. No family is emotionally prepared to bury their teenage child. While there are therapists to help with the emotional trauma, some families are at a loss on how they will pay medical bills and the costs related to the funeral and burial. An award from a wrongful death lawsuit could help ease the burden those bills can bring. A Georgia attorney who has represented other families who have lost one of their own in a motorcycle accident can give them the information they need to make crucial decisions for their altered life.
