College student killed in motorcycle-car accident

As Florida residents age, they often reflect on the carefree days they spent as youths. They may remember the freedom they felt from careers and families, and the enjoyment they derived from engaging in hobbies that they can no longer undertake in their older age. A young Florida college student will never have the chance to partake in this common form of nostalgia. His life was tragically ended in a deadly motorcycle-vehicle collision.

The 22-year-old student was riding his motorcycle on Fletcher Avenue in Tampa when a sedan made a left turn into his path. The motorcyclist applied his brakes and ended up tipping his motorcycle on the ground. The motorcycle slid and still hit the sedan, and the rider of the motorcycle died from his accident-related injuries.

Car accidents between vehicles and other automobiles are very common. Unfortunately, accidents between vehicles and motorcycles, bikes and pedestrians also occur frequently. Smaller modes of transportation and individuals on foot are often lost in the vision of vehicle drivers who are usually looking out for other large trucks, cars and sport utility vehicles. When vehicle drivers fail to pay attention to everyone who must use the roads for transportation then terrible accidents such as this one can happen.

An investigation into this tragedy may reveal more information on why this young man had to lose his life in a preventable motor vehicle collision. His relatives and loved ones may choose to speak with personal injury attorneys to educate themselves on their rights to compensation. In some personal injury cases, the family members of deceased motor vehicle accident victims can sue the responsible parties based on wrongful death claims that can award them damages if they are successfully pursued.
