Fatal motorcycle crash claims life of aspiring attorney

For many New Yorkers, riding a motorcycle is an integral part of their life. They enjoy the freedom that accompanies being on the open road and, despite its inherent risks, are sure to maintain proper safety procedures and wear necessary equipment. Still, motorcycle accidents happen without warning and can lead to serious injuries and death. These can happen to anyone as motorcyclists come from a wide array of backgrounds. For people who have been injured or had a loved one die in a motorcycle crash, the aftermath can be rife with problems. A legal filing is frequently the only way to recover sufficient compensation.

A 26-year-old aspiring attorney who was riding his motorcycle to the library to prepare for final exams was killed in a motorcycle crash. The accident happened in the mid-morning at around 10:30 a.m. The man was on a 2005 Aprilia. While on the Van Wyck Expressway, he was hit by a 2014 Honda CRV that ran into his lane. The motorcycle went into the curb and he was ejected. After being taken to the hospital, he was declared dead. This was set to be the conclusion of his second year in school. The driver of the Honda stayed at the scene and no charges have been filed.

Any motor vehicle accident can cause serious injuries and death, but when it is a motorcycle crash there is a significant likelihood that the rider will be hurt and need extensive medical care. That can include a long hospitalization, surgical procedures, rehabilitation and long-term assistance. For those who are hurt badly enough, the crash can end in a fatality. For the family left behind, that means the emotional and personal impact from an unexpected death. Whether it involved a young person who is just starting out in his or her life or an older person, it is essential for the loved ones to consider a lawsuit to maximize compensation.

A law student died when a car ran into his lane as he rode his motorcycle and there was a collision. The investigation is ongoing. As the case moves forward, the family must remember their rights. A law firm experienced in helping people who have lost a loved one in a motorcycle crash should be contacted for a consultation to determine the next step in filing a case.
