Charges Brought re North Carolina Motorcycle Accident

On behalf of Joel Rhine of Rhine Law Firm, P.C. posted February 10, 2015

Several charges have been filed against the driver of a truck in a recent collision which ended in tragedy on a Wednesday afternoon. The truck versus motorcycle accident took place on a North Carolina road in Raleigh, killing a 32-year-old woman. The truck driver, said to be 38 years old, is alleged to have caused the crash.

Investigators say that the trucker turned across the southbound lanes of the roadway. Apparently, he was trying to reach the entrance of a local flea market. The truck and motorcycle collided, and the motorcyclist died at the site of the accident.

The truck driver was accused of driving without a valid license, as well as for unsafe movements. He also faces a misdemeanor charge for death by motor vehicle. A conviction on that charge in North Carolina is punishable by up to 60 days in jail, as well as a fine.

Surviving family members of a fatal motorcycle accident victim face an uncertain time. The untimely death of a loved one can often bring about financial burdens in addition to the personal loss and suffering. North Carolina residents who have experienced such a tragedy are entitled to file and litigate a legal claim in order to seek compensation for their losses. It will be necessary to provide proof that the defendant negligently caused the death of the family member. Though a monetary award could never be a replacement for the life lost, it might bring a certain amount of comfort to the grieving family insofar as helping to absorb some of the unexpected costs brought about by the tragedy.
