Car accident victim succumbs to injuries at hospital

Drivers around the country, including those in the District of Columbia, have likely seen public service announcements and billboards reminding them to keep an eye out for motorcycles. Sadly, not all drivers are heeding that warning, and it is ultimately the motorcycle riders who pay the price for the driver negligence. A recent fatal accident should serve as a reminder for drivers to always watch for motorcycles.

The car accident happened when an SUV driver tried to make a U-turn from the southbound lanes of Indian Head Highway to the northbound lanes. The driver apparently didn't see that a motorcycle was heading toward the SUV and turned into the motorcycle's path. Because the SUV driver seemingly failed to yield the right of way to the oncoming motorcycle, the motorcyclist struck the SUV.

The motorcycle rider succumbed to his injuries at the hospital. The 46-year-old man would never make it back to his family because of this accident that might have been prevented if the SUV driver had paid attention and kept a look out for motorcycles. They are now having to cope with the loss of their loved one, which is something that will likely last a lifetime.

This man's family might decide to explore their options for seeking compensation for their loved one's death. Compensation might help to cover expenses, such as medical bills, final expenses and other damages related to this man's death. Knowing how to seek compensation and learning about the various claims that might apply to this can may help them to decide how to proceed with their case.
