Personal injury: New York crash injures motorcyclist

There are a variety of different methods to legally use New York roadways. While most people typically think of cars and trucks, motorcyclists and pedestrians, among others, also have the right to use the roads. As a result, other drivers must remain vigilant due to the decreased visibility of smaller vehicles and walkers. Unfortunately, a recent crash resulting in a personal injury illustrates the potential outcome when a motorcyclist is overlooked.

As in most large cities in the United States, people in New York have a variety of different options regarding transportation. While some opt to drive themselves, many others choose to walk or utilize public transportation. While pedestrians may feel like they are safe from car accidents, a recent crash resulting in a personal injury to a man on a sidewalk shows that may not be the case.

Even a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be caused by a seemingly minor accident. Since falls are actually the leading cause of TBIs, people that are 75 or older are the leading at-risk group for TBIs that result in hospitalization and death because of a fall. However, anyone or any age can suffer a TBI after a fall.
