Commentary on Jose Coreas-Ortiz Motorcycle Accident in Stamford

When it comes to motorcycle wrecks, my immediate concern is if the incident is really getting the attention it deserves. Frankly, people are quick to blame motorcyclists just because they see riders as reckless daredevils. Those riders are certainly out there, but plenty of riders are responsible and instead fall victim to drivers in larger vehicles not keeping a proper lookout. That's why it's often more prudent to ensure there are more thorough independent investigations.

For example, I handled this situation a while back involving a motorcyclist crashing into a semi. The initial reports said the victim was weaving through traffic and speeding before hitting the truck. The family didn't think that sounded right since their loved one was a very safe driver. They asked us to look into things, and it turned out authorities completely got the facts wrong.

A witness was able to clarify their statements and testified that the motorcyclist simply passed them on the left before going back to the right. In fact, they said they were going below the speed limit at the time. It was actually the truck cutting off the biker that caused the wreck.

To be clear, I'm not saying that happened here. I'm saying it took thorough independent investigations to set the record straight because even authorities are susceptible to unfair biases. If nothing else, taking steps to ensure a family knows they're getting all the facts is worth considering after any fatal crash. This incident isn't likely to be the exception.
