Two wheeled vehicles have their own sets of problems. The risk of a bicycle or motorcycle accident on Arizona roadways can come from something as small as a rock or a larger obstacle that threatens a rider's balance. A bicycle accident last summer in Tucson is being blamed on new streetcar tracks in the city. The seriously injured woman has notified the Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) as well as the city's transit service of her intention to sue.
Motorcycles are dangerous. For some, that is part of the attraction. Every time an individual gets in a motor vehicle in Arizona, there is a risk of injury. For those that ride bikes, and their passengers, that risk is greater. Any number of factors can lead to a serious motorcycle accident, and one of the most significant ones is driver negligence.
An Arizona police department is continuing to investigate a fatal crash that took the life of a 30-year-old man. The motorcycle accident occurred in Chandler at approximately 5:45 a.m. on a recent Tuesday morning. While at least one witness to the tragedy has already spoken with police, authorities note that one or more additional vehicles were stopped at the intersection. A phone number was provided in a news report for anyone with information relevant to the crash to contact law enforcement.
One person close to survivors of a deadly motorcycle accident back in 2010 is now claiming that hospitals are unfairly placing those victims in dire financial straits. The Arizona motorcycle accident killed that woman's father, along with three other motorcyclists. Five other bikers suffered serious injuries in that tragic collision.
The operators of motor vehicles -- whether cars, trucks or motorcycles -- owe a duty of reasonable care to each other when driving on American roadways. A recent Arizona collision between a car and a motorcycle caused extensive damage to the motorcycle and its driver. Fortunately, however, there were no life-threatening injuries in this motorcycle accident.
A retrial is set to begin in Phoenix in a manslaughter case. In March 2010, a fatal motorcycle accident occurred when a dump truck reportedly slammed into a group of motorcyclists. A group of motorcycles were stopped at a red light when the dump truck allegedly failed to stop and ran into them. Four motorcyclists were killed and others were injured as a result of the accident.
