New Jersey man faces up to 30 years for death of motorcyclist

A motorcycle accident is more likely to result in injuries or a death than a passenger vehicle accident, but that's only if you are hit. Drivers need to be aware of motorcyclists and follow the rules of the road. When they don't, people's lives can be at stake.

A man in New Jersey has been indicted for the death of a man from New Hampshire. A Dec. 12 article reports that a grand jury has indicted the New Jersey man on manslaughter charges for the death of the 43-year-old man who he hit in a motorcycle accident. The 53-year-old man is accused of being under the influence at the time of the accident. The indictment claims that his blood alcohol content was .08.

The initial accident happened on June 29 on Route 2 in Bethel. That was when the 53-year-old man failed to yield to an oncoming motorcyclist, striking the motorcycle and killing the 43-year-old. The man died at the scene of the accident. Another person on the motorcycle, a woman, was taken to Rumford Hospital and Central Maine Medical Center for treatment. Her condition was not reported on. Both the man and his wife in the vehicle were also taken to the hospital for treatment. If the 53-year-old man is convicted of all counts against him, he could face over 30 years in prison.

If this situation sounds like yours, you don't have to go through it alone. You may be able to seek compensation for lost wages, medical bills, or even funeral costs by pursuing a civil lawsuit. Your time to do so may be limited, so it's important to seek out information as soon as possible.
