The police have not given the slightest indication that the motorcyclist who lost his life was doing anything wrong.

Authorities continue to investigate a fatal motorcycle-on-bus crash that happened last month. Traffic attorney Michael Steinger says the accident highlights the dangers that bikers face.

The biker was heading east on Port St. Lucie Boulevard and the bus was coming the opposite way. The bus made a left turn in front of the motorcycle according to CBS 12 News (08.28.2013). The motorcycle driver died instantly.

The accident was preventable according to Steinger, the founder of Steinger, Iscoe & Greene law firm, which works extensively with motorcycle accident victims.

“The police have not given the slightest indication that the motorcyclist who lost his life was doing anything wrong,” Steinger said.

Neither the bus driver nor any of the bus' five passengers were injured, a fact that Steinger says highlights the disparity between bikers and other motorists.

Steinger says that's true even when bikers wear helmets and follow all safety rules.

“Bikers often get blamed for their own injuries,” he said. “But most motorcyclists take safety very seriously.”
