Massachusetts motorcycle accident claims life of one rider

A motorcycle accident can be a fatal occurrence in the most extreme circumstances. Although most riders are aware of the risks associated with riding, careless drivers make riding difficult at times. A recent Massachusetts motorcycle accident has claimed the life of one.

While riding a motorcycle, a man was hit by a truck. He died at the scene of the collision. It was reported he was pinned under the truck. No further information was given at the time regarding his age or where he was taken following the crash.

The man driving the truck was listed to be 27 years old. He is now facing several charges, including driving without an interlock device. This is a device that is used as a breathalyzer and most often installed after a person has been charged with driving under the influence. In this case, the man had lost his license and wasn't able to drive without using the device. Although initial charges have been listed, the investigation is ongoing and could possibly result in additional charges.

Any Massachusetts resident that has been involved in a motorcycle accident could benefit from knowing their rights under the applicable state law. The family of this victim may want to look into their right to file a civil suit. Although they are facing an emotionally trying time, it can be critical to take swift action to protect the financial future of his loved ones. Final medical bills as well as burial expenses are just a few of the financial obstacles that could be faced. By taking a proactive approach, the family can better hope to protect their financial future.
