- Man Killed by Truck in Tucson Motorcycle Accident | Legal News | News Ticker
One of the reasons that so many Arizona motorcycle accidents lead to serious injuries or worse is because those who are riding on motorcycles are at a distinct disadvantage when it comes to protection from the environment around them. When a collision occurs, motorcyclists are often faced with a direct impact with the other vehicle and/or the pavement underneath them. That’s why it’s so important for motorists to use caution around motorcycles. While police have yet to decide whether to cite a truck driver, some sort of mistake was made that led to the death of a man in a Tucson motorcycle accident.
According to the authorities, this Tucson motorcycle accident occurred yesterday morning when 55-year-old Bennie Lee Jennings was driving his motorcycle near Miracle Mile and Flowing Wells. As he was proceeding down the road, the driver of a large truck pulled out in front of him, and a violent collision ensued. Mr. Jennings was rushed to a hospital where he fought for his life for several hours before succumbing to his injuries. Police have indicated that the motorcyclist was wearing his helmet and had the right-of-way, but they continue to investigate the situation.

Arizona Wrongful Death Lawyers
While more information from the investigation would be needed to make a definitive determination regarding fault in this fatal Tucson motorcycle accident, if it turns out that the truck driver was at fault it could lead to the filing of an Arizona wrongful death lawsuit by the man’s family against the truck driver. If the truck was commercial in nature and the truck driver was driving in the course of his employment, it could also lead to the employer being named as a defendant in the legal claim.

It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
