Millions Recovered For Injured People

Motorcyclist killed in fatal car crash where driver fled scene

Motorcycles are a common sight on the road in Connecticut. For the most part, drivers of conventional vehicles share the road with motorcyclists and everyone remains safe. However, motorcycle accidents do happen, and they can lead to serious injuries and fatalities.

Since a motorcyclist is so at risk, it is important that when there is an accident, the driver remains at the scene to try and help. At the very least, emergency services should be called. When the driver flees, it makes matters worse. In a worst-case scenario, there can be a wrongful death. The family of a loved one who died in a fatal motorcycle accident may have the right to seek compensation in a legal filing.

An accident between a car and a motorcycle led to the death of the motorcyclist, age 51. The motorcyclist ended up stuck in the windshield of the vehicle while the driver took off. When the motorcyclist was found several blocks away from the initial site of the crash, the motorcyclist did not have a pulse. First responders could not revive him. He was taken to the hospital where he was declared dead. The vehicle that hit the biker, a Mercury Sable, was found. The investigation to locate the driver is ongoing.

Being in a motorcycle crash will inevitably result in injuries that can be life-changing. There can be head injuries, spinal cord damage and more. When the injuries are significant enough, it can result in a wrongful death. The family left behind might face lost wages, a loss of companionship, the emotional impact from the unexpected death and other long-term problems. While a legal filing and compensation will not bring the person back, it can help a family with expenses and other necessities as they try to come to grips with what happened.
