North Carolina woman faces charged after motorcycle crash

Between the irresistible roads through the Great Smoky Mountains and the long stretches of offshore highways, North Carolina is a great place to own and ride a motorcycle. Several people in the Tar Heel State, including members of the armed forces, use bikes as a primary way to get around. Since motorcycles provide little protection to riders, any collision can put them at risk.

Many collisions between cars or trucks and motorcycles are accidents that do not carry criminal charges. However, many of the common types of crashes are preventable when drivers pay closer attention to their surroundings and keep their wits about them.

A woman from Sanford is facing criminal charges over a fatal motorcycle accident in Fayetteville. The suspect allegedly struck the victim's bike with her car in the pre-dawn hours of a recent Sunday while she was impaired by alcohol or recreational drug use. The motorcyclist, a soldier from Fort Bragg, was transported to a hospital where he died.

The driver was charged with driving while impaired as well as unsafe movement injuring a motorcyclist. Another fatal motorcycle accident occurred later that day in Fayetteville, with another driver facing charges including driving with a revoked license. Cumberland County is noted for the highest motorcycle accident rate in North Carolina, as well as the most registered bikes.

Victims of bike crashes and the survivors of motorcyclists killed on the road may find some help with financial damages that can be helpful during recovery from a tragedy. Legal representation can be helpful if people are considering a negotiated settlement or jury verdict after filing a lawsuit in civil court.
