Fatal Indiana motorcycle accident claims life of 18-year old

In an Indiana community around an hour south of the Fort Wayne area, an 18-year old man was recently killed in a motorcycle accident. The accident occurred as the motorcyclist was traveling east and a vehicle driven by another 18-year old man traveling west turned south in front of motorcyclist without seeing him. Following the motorcycle crash, the motorcycle caught fire. The driver of the passenger vehicle that struck the motorcycle was not injured.

Motorcycle accidents can result in serious injuries and the loss of life. Unfortunately, many motorcycle accidents are caused by inattentive drivers or drivers who fail to spot a motorcyclist on the road. Motorcycle accidents can claim the lives of victims and commonly occur when a driver of a motor vehicle violates the right of way of a motorcyclist by turning in front of them.

Through a personal injury claim for damages, victims of motorcycle accidents, and family members of loved ones killed in one of these crashes, may be able to recover compensation for their physical, financial, and emotional injuries. A personal injury claim for damages can help injured motorcycle accident victims with their medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering damages. A wrongful death claim for damages can help surviving loved ones with the financial and emotional damages they are left with after the unexpected loss of their loved one.

When a negligent driver has caused a motorcycle accident that resulted in injury or death to the victim, it is important for both motorcycle accident victims and their family members to be familiar with the legal protections available to them. Legal professionals can serve as a resource during such a difficult time.
