Motorcyclists can get severely hurt when they are involved in collisions with other vehicles. Head injuries, neck injuries, back injuries and broken bones are among the injuries individuals sometimes suffer in such accidents. Major medical expenses can arise in connection to such injuries.
A motorcycle accident recently happened in New Jersey in which a man was seriously hurt.
On Monday, a car was traveling west along West Pinebrook Road in Lincoln Park. The car then tried to turn left into the parking lot of a nursing home. During this turn attempt, a collision occurred between the car and an eastbound motorcycle. The motorcycle was being operated by a 45-year-old man.
According to the article on northjersey.com which reported this story, this motorcycle accident is currently under investigation by authorities.
The 45-year-old man suffered serious injuries in the collision. He was taken by air to a hospital in Patterson following the crash.
There are many details it can be important to look into when investigating car vs. motorcycle collisions. Some examples include: how fast the vehicles involved were going, whether any traffic signs/signals applied to any of the involved vehicles, whether any of the involved drivers committed any traffic violations and whether any of the involved drivers were under the influence of alcohol or other impairing substances at the time of the accident. Such details can help paint a picture of what happened in a car vs. motorcycle accident and who should be held responsible for the harms caused by it.
