As Glendale motorcycle accident attorneys, we never like hearing that a death could have possibly been prevented. According to a news report in the Tucson Citizen, a 60-year-old woman was killed after a motorcycle accident on November 30, 2011 while riding near 114th Street and Glendale Avenue. Police believe the motorcycle accident may have been caused by a “maintenance issue.” Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s family during this time.
Causes of This Glendale Motorcycle Accident
According to reports, police believe this Glendale motorcycle accident may have been caused by a maintenance issue. They said too much brake kicked in when the woman attempted to stop at a traffic light. As Glendale motorcycle accident lawyers, we sometimes see motorcycle accidents that are caused by defective parts, as well as motorcycle accidents that are caused by improper repairs. It is possible that the woman had her motorcycle worked on at a repair shop and a technician did not adjust the brakes correctly. When she applied the brake, it is possible that the bike overturned and killed her. There are many reputable repair shops in Arizona, so this is not to say the repair shop is at fault; it just could be something that the family of the woman should look into to see if they have a valid wrongful death claim. Many times the product companies recall certain items.
Arizona Motorcycle Accident Statistics
