Motorcycle accident: Lawsuit results in $2 million settlement

As the warmer months approach in New Jersey, motorcyclists will take the roads to enjoy scenic rides and beautiful weather. With more vehicles sharing already crowded roads, accidents become almost inevitable. Unfortunately, any motorcycle accident has a higher risk of serious injury or death since motorcyclists are totally exposed to the elements. A Jersey City man filed a lawsuit after he was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, and this lawsuit recently resulted in a settlement of $2 million.

According to the suit, the man was riding his motorcycle on a spring day in 2016. Riding on Marin Boulevard in Jersey City, he was allegedly struck by a car and thrown from his motorcycle. The lawsuit asserted that the 75-year-old driver of the car was making a left turn and claimed he never saw the motorcycle.

Although he was wearing a helmet, the crash caused injuries near the right eye of the motorcyclist, according to reports. It is asserted that due to the injuries, the man lost vision in his right eye and he is now blind. The lawsuit also claimed that the plaintiff received significant scarring because he had to undergo a craniotomy procedure after the crash. The lawsuit was recently settled for $2.04 million.

As more and more motorcyclists take to New Jersey roadways to enjoy the warmer weather, the odds for accidents will increase. Those that have been injured due to no fault of their own in a motorcycle accident can pursue legal action. A successful lawsuit could result in a monetary award that could be used for medical expenses and other financial losses.
