North Carolina Personal Injury Lawyer Perspective:
This terrible accident shows how important it is that we always pay close attention for both motorcyclists and bikers as we are driving.
This is particularly important when we are making left hand turns. According to US government statistics, 42% of two-vehicle motorcycle crashes involve the car turning left into the path of the motorcycle. Motorcycles and bikes are not as easy to see as cars, but it is our responsibility to be on the lookout for them.
The family of the motorcyclist should consult with a personal injury attorney, because they could be eligible to receive financial restitution for the loss of their loved one. Our hearts go out to the family in this unfortunate accident.
