Police provided very few details about this collision so there are still many unanswered questions about what led to this accident. It does appear that the motorcyclist had the right-of-way and the driver in the car may have pulled out into his path. It’s also unknown whether speed or distracted driving played a role. Police will go over the evidence to determine if there was negligence by either motorist to determine fault.
Upon completion of the investigation, the family members of the man who died may have the right to a wrongful death claim. Surviving family of victims killed in car accidents would potentially be entitled to seek compensation for funeral costs, and loss of love and companionship.
