Motorcyclist Killed – Whose Fault Was It?
Assigning Fault Can Be Tough In Motorcycle Crashes
On Thursday morning, May 18, 2015, a traffic collision resulted in the death of a Gilroy motorcyclist. The accident occurred just south of the Highway 85 over-cross, on Moffett Boulevard around 11:00 am.
The police have not yet been able to determine the cause of the crash, though, according to reports, drugs or alcohol did not seem to play a part in the collision. The driver of the motorcycle, a 24 year-old young man, was transported to the hospital immediately following the crash, but was unfortunately pronounced dead upon arrival. The driver of the other vehicle involved in the car accident did not sustain any injuries. Moreover, the driver has been cooperating with the investigators as they attempts to determine the cause of the collision. At this point, it is not known who was at fault.
In such cases, should it be determined that the driver of the other vehicle was at fault, the family members of the motorcyclist could conceivably bring a wrongful death suit against the car driver. If liability was established, they would be able to recover for their loss.
