Motorcyclists are enthusiastic about riding. However, they realize all too well that the trade for this feeling of freedom is an increased risk of injury or even death if they're ever in an accident. Most of them follow safety procedures, such as wearing helmets while riding, but they can't always count on other motorists to drive safely. Families who lose a loved one to a motorcycle crash may decide to file a wrongful death claim to seek full financial accountability from those believed to be responsible. That may be the choice of one Texas family after one motorcyclist died in a crash that led to an arrest.
It is about a 250-mile drive north of Houston to get to Arlington. The city was recently the site of a fiery interstate crash that a local police department spokesperson described as "horrific." Three people were killed in the crash, law enforcement officials said, but authorities had been able to identify only two of the crash victims.
