Alcohol involved in fatal motorcycle accident

With the state of New Jersey in the midst of a population boom, more and more vehicles are sharing the road, which means the chances for accidents increase drastically. Motorcyclists are at an increased risk for accidents, as motorcycles are smaller and can be harder to see than other vehicles. Unlike drivers in automobiles, motorcyclists are more open and exposed to the dangers of modern roadways. Because motorcyclists are so exposed, any motorcycle accident can have fatal consequences.

Sadly, a recent accident in Edison proved to be fatal for a motorcyclist. According to accident reports, the motorcyclist was rear-ended by the driver of a car. Police say the motorcyclist was sitting at a traffic light and the driver of a station wagon failed to stop, violently colliding with the motorcycle.

Tragically, reports say that the motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say the driver of the station wagon was driving while under the influence of alcohol. Police arrested the driver of the station wagon and charged him with DWI and death by auto. He could face many years in prison.

Unfortunately, accidents involving motorcycles often have fatal outcomes. New Jersey residents should know that they have options that may ease the pain and suffering involved with the death of a loved one in a motorcycle accident. If negligence is apparent, the surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit in civil court. A successful lawsuit could result in a monetary award that could be used for medical costs, end-of-life expenses and other financial losses.
