Generally speaking, when a fatal motorcycle or car accident occurs, we tend to assume that the fault lies with one of the parties involved in the crash. However, it may be the case that the city responsible for maintaining the streets and protecting the safety of its residents was at fault. In such a situation, it may be wise to contact an expert motorcycle accident attorney or car accident attorney at 617-787-3700.
On June 19, 2017, Aaron De Senna Fernandes was struck and killed by a jeep while riding his motorcycle through Kokomo, Indiana. Fernades’s wife, Shannon Bishop, claims that the city allowed several bushes and trees to grow so long as to obstruct the view of the jeep such that it was impossible for the jeep to see Fernandes approaching. Had the bushes and trees been properly maintained, the accident would not have occurred, according to Bishop.
The city code states that obstructing or endangering free passage on the streets is an offense, but it will require a lawsuit to determine whether the city was in violation of this ordinance. Bishop is represented by attorney Matthew Golitko of Golitko and Daly, located in Indianapolis, Indiana.
