Fatal accident claims life of motorcyclist and passenger

Riding a motorcycle in Tampa can be an enjoyable experience, but it is still fraught with danger. Whether it is other drivers who are not paying strict attention to the motorcyclist or due to the vulnerability that is inherent when riding a motorcycle, any crash can quickly turn into a fatal motorcycle accident. No matter the circumstances, those who have been affected by a wrongful death incident will probably want to understand what to do after it happens.

According to a recent report, a motorcyclist was killed and his passenger was critically injured in a crash as both were thrown from the bike. The incident happened as the motorcycle headed north on the roadway at approximately 2:45 a.m.

According to law enforcement's investigation, a 2008 Ford F-150 pickup truck driven by a 21-year-old man in front of the motorcycle slowed because another vehicle ahead of the truck had its hazard lights on. The motorcycle hit the pickup and the riders were ejected. The 54-year-old man who was operating the motorcycle died at the scene. His passenger was hospitalized.

When a fatal accident occurs the family members who are left behind will probably have a great deal to worry about. The loss of a loved one and the funeral costs are bad enough. But, if the person who was killed was a significant part of the household as a parent, grandparent, sibling and breadwinner, it can make the fatality a long-lasting problem. Those who have been affected by a death in this manner will probably want to understand how to pursue litigation for compensation. Part of that is having a full investigation to determine exactly what happened and to gather evidence.
