Florida motorcycle accidents: 21-year-old killed in crash

The aftermath of a motor vehicle crash can be a difficult time for those involved and their families. In addition to the property damage that may occur, motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries. One Florida family is mourning the loss of a young man after he was killed in one such accident.

The collision occurred May 18 near an intersection. According to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, the victim was traveling northbound while the driver believed to be responsible was headed south. The driver of the car pulled into the path of the biker in an attempt to make a left turn. The two vehicles then collided.

Reports indicate that the victim was wearing a helmet, but it was not enough to prevent the serious injuries he suffered. Police stated that he passed away shortly after the crash. It is unclear whether the driver of the car suffered any injuries.

Though no criminal charges have been filed against the driver of the car at this time, the victim's family may still consider filing a wrongful death claim for monetary damages in civil court. By successfully proving the other driver negligent, the family may be entitled to a monetary judgment that could help pay for funeral costs and any other expenses related to the collision. Similarly, any Florida families who have lost loved ones in motorcycle accidents may also be able to file claims. Experienced personal injury attorneys could provide more information about these claims to those interested and provide assistance throughout the litigation process.
