Drivers across the country are involved in accidents every day, and many of these accidents may involve young drivers. These young people may be more likely to be involved in an accident due to their inexperience. It can be easy for an inexperienced driver to misjudge the distance between vehicles or to overlook smaller vehicles like motorcycles. However, these mistakes can sometimes lead to a deadly car or motorcycle accident, as was the case in a recent Georgia crash.
This accident occurred just before 11 a.m. on May 27. When authorities arrived, they determined that the crash was caused when the car was attempting to turn left onto an intersecting street from the southbound side of the road. As she attempted to make the left turn, the driver's car pulled into the path of a northbound motorcycle.
The motorcyclist was severely injured in the crash and was transported to a local hospital. Unfortunately, the motorcycle rider was pronounced dead later that same day. Local sheriffs are still investigating the crash.
A significant number of vehicle accidents could be avoided if drivers took the time to double check for oncoming vehicles. This may be especially true for accidents involving smaller vehicles like motorcycles. Georgia residents who have been injured in a motorcycle accident may be entitled to compensation and could benefit from speaking to an attorney. Victims may use this compensation to cover medical expenses or property damage costs resulting from the accident. The families of victims who were killed may also be entitled to compensation for funeral costs.
