Motorcyclist killed when truck pulls out in front of him

North Carolina residents enjoy weather that allows them to ride their motorcycles almost year-round. Many people own a motorcycle and enjoy riding it to work or for pleasure. Most of the time they are able to safely share the road with cars and trucks, but, occasionally, a motorcycle accident occurs that causes serious injuries.

A man was recently killed in Durham while riding his motorcycle. A delivery truck was attempting to make a left turn on I-40 when he hit the motorcycle. The motorcycle driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the delivery truck was cited for misdemeanor death by vehicle.

No one expects their loved one to be involved in a fatal accident. Unfortunately, hundreds of families are affected by this reality every year. If a family finds themselves affected by an accident, they may want to speak with a legal professional who specializes in personal injury. An attorney can review the accident and get the answers the family deserves about what happened to their loved one. If the negligent party was working at the time of the accident, an attorney may also be able to hold their employer responsible for the accident as well, through a theory called vicarious liability. Compensation may be available for funeral expenses, medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages.

A car accident can have devastating effects on a family. A family may lose their breadwinner or their child. They may face thousands of dollars in unanticipated medical bills and funeral bills. During this traumatic time, an attorney can help a family get the answers they deserve and hold the negligent party responsible for their mistake.
