Motorcyclist loses control, causes fatal motorcycle accident

Both decedents are from Hephzibah. A second pedestrian suffered serious injury in the form of a broken right leg and a laceration to his left leg. He was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center for treatment and remained hospitalized. It's unknown at this time what caused the motorcycle to lose control.

The event proves that an out-of-control motorcycle can be as dangerous as any vehicle in some situations. Regardless of what caused the driver to lose control, in most instances he'll likely be found to have been the negligent cause of this kind of an event. Unless unusual facts are offered, the two pedestrians would look to the motorcycle driver's estate to provide compensation for personal injury and death. Hopefully, the motorcycle had sufficient insurance to cover a serious injury and a death case.

If driver in this motorcycle accident had insufficient insurance, the estate of the deceased pedestrian and the injured pedestrian will have to look to their own auto insurance policies. They will turn to the underinsured motorists' provisions of their own policies to recover the balance or as much of it as possible. In Georgia and most other states, you can purchase additional insurance on your own policy in case you're injured or killed by someone who had insufficient insurance coverage.
