Motorcycle accidents: SUV driver charged after fatal accident

A 75-year-old woman in Colorado was recently arrested after she allegedly caused the death of one person and serious injuries to another. Motorcycle accidents are more prevalent during the summer months, and this one reportedly happened on a recent Monday shortly after 11:15 a.m. According to the Boulder Police Department, the investigation is ongoing.

A preliminary accident report indicates that a motorcycle carrying two people was struck by the SUV when the driver failed to yield at an intersection. Reportedly, the male rider suffered fatal injuries and his death was pronounced at the crash scene. His female passenger survived, but she suffered serious injuries, and she was rushed to a hospital.

The SUV driver remained at the accident scene. She was taken into custody, and she is now facing two charges of careless driving, one for causing death and one for causing serious injuries. However, police asked witnesses to provide information about the time leading up to the accident, along with any details witnessed at the crash scene.

Regardless of the outcome of criminal cases that follow motorcycle accidents in Colorado, the injured victims and surviving family members of deceased victims may be entitled to pursue claims for financial relief. Any fines or convictions a driver receives could serve as evidence of negligence in a related civil court proceeding, and an experienced personal injury attorney can explain the legal process. If the court finds one or more parties financially responsible, documented claims for monetary damages will be adjudicated. These could include economic losses like medical expenses, lost wages, and end-of-life expenses when applicable. Emotional damages such as pain and suffering, lost companionship and the loss of life enjoyment could also form part of the documented claims.
