A Tampa Bay wrongful death car accident involving a motorcycle occurred at 9am on January 31, 2019. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, an SUV driver is at fault in a crash that killed a motorcyclist. It was just before 9 a.m. on Thursday morning when a Hyundai Tucson, heading south on U.S. 19, started to make a left turn into the path of the motorcycle driver who had a green light.
The Riverview personal injury lawyers at The Frank Santini Law Firm would like to express their sincere condolences to the family and friends of those involved in this motorcycle wrongful death accident.
By the very nature of a motorcycle, the motorcyclist lacks the natural enclosed protection provided by typical automobiles. As a result when another driver is not paying attention or is otherwise negligent and crashes into a motorcycle, the result of the accident is typically a serious personal injury. Riverview motorcycle accidents and auto accidents throughout Florida take an unbelievable emotional toll on the friends and family of those injured in the motorcycle accident. The void of losing a loved one because of another driver’s negligent driving is not only emotional. The loss of income in a family can mean losing the ability to keep one’s home, pay school tuition or even purchase groceries. In Florida, the spouse or family of the the motorcycle driver killed in an accident can recover compensation. In reality, there is no true “compensation” for losing your husband, son, or brother, but Florida law at least allows the bereaved to start the healing process by recovering a financial award so that the family can keep their lives going while they try to put the emotional pieces back together.
