Motorcyclist killed in Fayetteville accident

If you give a motorcycle a break by braking, you are doing more than offering courtesy. You may be saving a life. When a motorcycle is involved in a traffic accident, the bike's driver and any passengers are at far more risk for injury or death than the occupants of a car or truck.

North Carolina's traffic bureaus and law enforcement agencies do their best to warn drivers to look out for motorcycles, as they are more difficult to spot on the road. But the Tar Heel State still has a disturbing number of fatal motorcycle accidents. A recent one in Fayetteville has also resulted in criminal charges against a driver who may be responsible.

A 33-year-old biker was killed at the scene of a collision on a busy road in a commercial district. Local police say a driver was making a left turn onto the road from a side drive when he pulled in front of the motorcycle. Failure to yield is one of the main causes of motorcycle accidents and fatalities.

The car's driver was charged with the unsafe movement of a car that injured a motorcyclist as well as other charges related to an expired registration, revoked driver's license and a car inspection violation. He may also be liable for financial damages in civil court if the survivors of the victim pursue a claim.

Victims of motorcycle accidents and the survivors of motorcycle fatalities have the right to seek reimbursement for related expenses and compensation for pain and emotional distress. A lawyer can help victims and their families work out the best options to move on from a tragedy.
