David West died in a motorcycle accident in Hood County, Texas. The incident occurred on January 31, 2016. LaDonna Welch was the other driver involved in the accident. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death lawsuit, especially once the investigation is complete.
Everett Matheney was arrested after a car accident in Arlington, Texas. Matheney was found to be drunk driving. The fatal and unfortunate accident occurred on December 11, 2015. We would anticipate that this case may result in a wrongful death lawsuit, especially since evidence proved that he was intoxicated.
Cody Frankum died after a motorcycle accident in Galveston, Texas. This fatal incident occurred on the night of November 5, 2015. We would anticipate that this case may result in a personal injury and wrongful death lawsuit, especially if the evidence proves that the truck driver was at fault.
Car accidents can be devastating. Motorcycle accidents more so especially, if the accident is caused by a manufacturer's defect. Anyone who drives a motorcycle will tell you of the dangers first hand. A motorcycle does not have the protection of the exoskeleton of a car. There is no shield between the driver and the driver's environment. A malfunction in the motorcycle can prove fatal or end in a brain injury. In recent years, product recalls have littered the news.
An accident between a motorcycle and a truck almost always, for obvious resons, leads to serious injuries or death. And because of the great disparity in size between the two vehicles, people may assume that the motorcycle driver was not at fault. Motorcycle drivers have just as much of a responsibility as other drivers to obey the rules of the road, but the cause of a recent accident in Houston does not appear to have an obvious culprit.
