2 motorcycle accidents take lives in Arizona

| Apr 2, 2019 | Motorcycle Accidents |

It’s become very clear that riding a motorcycle is dangerous. Already this spring in Arizona, a pair of accidents claimed lives and left family members with plenty of questions.

One accident happened in Scottsdale, on Loop 101. An investigation is underway, headed up by the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS). They have not released many details, though they did note that:

  • The crash involved a motorcycle
  • At least one person died
  • The wreck impacted the westbound lanes
  • They had to close down those lanes, leading to heavy delays, so that detectives could investigate

The other accident happened off of Loop 303, near the Beardsley Canal, back in March. The rider, a 35-year-old man, was thrown off of his bike and flew a substantial distance.

“You know, this is every wife’s nightmare when your husband rides a motorcycle,” his wife said. “He flew completely up over the canal. The bike hit right here and my husband’s body was up here…It’s a lot to try to deal with every night. You close your eyes [and] you see your husband’s face just in fear.”

The woman has four children and will now be rearing them on her own. She said they keep asking her about the accident that took their father’s life. As with the other incident noted above, the DPS is still investigating the cause.

If you are a motorcyclist, you must be aware of these risks. Accident stories are unfortunately all too common. If you suffer serious injuries or if a loved one passes away, you need to know what legal options you have to pursue financial compensation.
