Matthew Griffin is dead after a motorcycle accident in Nixon, Texas. The fatal accident occurred on October 15, 2015. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death lawsuit, especially if evidence proves that the other driver was at fault.
Griffin, a paramedic of Gonzales County EMS, was riding on his motorcycle. Jorge Ortiz was driving in his truck and proceeded to turn in front of Griffin’s motorcycle. The motorcycle and truck crashed, injuring Griffin. Griffin was transported to the hospital where he died of his critical injuries. Our hearts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Griffin.
It is always sad to hear about car collisions, and this motorcycle accident is equally as sad. The roads are always a place where unpredictable moments take place. That is why safety and adhering to road signage is very important.
Ortiz was ticketed for failing to yield the right of way. Why did he turn in front of Griffin? Did he not see his motorcycle?
There are some questions that may still need answers and some actions that may need explanations. Personal injury lawyers do not always rely on the police reports. They often hire private investigators to find the answers to additional questions. Investigators often obtain helpful information that is not included in the police report, information that family members sometimes want to know.
The facts of this case may support a wrongful death lawsuit. The Weaver Law Firm understands that family and friends may have plenty of questions regarding wrongful death lawsuits.
