As the weather warms, more and more motorcyclists will be on the roadways. This also means there will be more accidents involving motorcycles. Because there is no protection around a motorcyclist, almost any accident can result in serious injuries. For one motorcyclist in Texas, an accident involving an alleged drunk driver took his life. The accident occurred on March 30, just after 11:30 p.m. A 22-year-old man was headed south on his motorcycle on South Garland Avenue in Garland, Texas. According to police, a 23-year-old man was headed south in the northbound lanes in a Chevy Camaro. They say the Camaro struck the motorcycle head-on. The motorcyclist was transported to Presbyterian Hospital, which is located in Dallas. He did not survive his injuries. Police arrested the other driver after they allegedly determined that he was intoxicated. He is currently being held on the charge of intoxication manslaughter with a bond of $50,000. Losing a loved one in an accident involving a drunk driver is tragic and completely preventable. The intoxicated driver can be held criminally and civilly liable for your loved one's death, but that doesn't bring a whole lot of comfort to the victim's survivors. Sometimes this type of accident takes the life of a family's primary breadwinner. While a personal injury lawsuit won't bring a loved one back, it can help the victim's family move forward financially. A judgment in favor of the victim's family may also help discourage similar actions by others in the future. A personal injury attorney can provide more information on how to go about seeking compensation for the death of a loved one due to the actions of a drunk driver.
