A common phrase that is often included in stories detailing motorcycle accidents in Walker is “authorities continue to investigate the cause of the crash.” Some might question the need to expend resources looking into accidents when the results of such investigations will do little to change their outcomes. While assigning fault in a car accident does not change its results, it may offer answers and a degree of closure to those affected by it. It might also help provide those looking to overcomes the losses they sustain with the compensation needed to do so.
A local family has indeed been left distraught after a teenage boy was recently killed in a motorcycle accident in Grand Bay. The young man was described as a popular student and athlete. Authorities are still looking into the cause of the collision between the young man’s motorcycle and an SUV (although they believe that it was the motorcycle that struck the vehicle). The driver of the SUV was uninjured in the crash. The accident occurred as the teen was headed home from school and less than a half a mile from the home of one his good friends.
Hearing that the motorcycle collided with the vehicle in this case (and others like it) may cause some to immediately assume that the motorcyclist is at fault. Yet oftentimes, motorcyclists find that motorists (out of a lack of knowledge or simple carelessness) do not respect their positions on the road. That may cause them to assume the task of avoiding an accident for both parties. Sadly, attempting to avoid a collision does not always mean one will. Those needing to initiate action when the motorcyclists they love are killed or injured due to the carelessness of others may want to secure the services of an experienced attorney.
