When motorcycles are involved in accidents, the outcomes are often devastating. The reasons that these incidents occur can vary, but often, drivers of larger vehicles tend to overlook motorcycles due to them being smaller. Unfortunately, if a larger vehicle turns in front of a motorcycle, fatal injuries could result.

It was recently reported that this type of outcome stemmed from a crash in Colorado. Two individuals were on a motorcycle traveling south when an SUV made a left turn in front of the motorcycle. As a result, the motorcycle crashed into the side of the SUV. The individuals on the motorcycle were reported as being a 42-year-old male driver and a 37-year-old female passenger. The driver of the SUV was 68 years old.

The incident resulted in the motorcycle passenger suffering injuries that proved fatal after being transported to an area hospital. The driver of the motorcycle was also seriously injured, and the SUV driver suffered minor injuries. At the time of the report, it did not appear that drugs or alcohol played a role in the incident, and the investigation was still underway.

Because this Colorado motorcycle accident resulted in fatal injuries, it may be possible for the family of the victim to file a wrongful death claim against the driver considered at fault. This action may help them seek compensation for funeral expenses, medical bills and other permissible damages. Additionally, the seriously injured motorcycle driver may have reason to file a personal injury claim of his own. Information on these legal routes may prove useful to these parties.
