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.

Rescue workers were called to the scene of an accident one August afternoon. According to reports, the driver of a sedan that was headed south was attempting to turn left onto a driveway. Police believe that the 24-year-old driver failed to notice a northbound motorcycle.

Unfortunately, the motorcycle is said to have collided with the sedan, ejecting the motorcyclist. He was transported to the hospital by ambulance for treatment of a head injury. The driver of the sedan has since been charged with failure to yield the right away; it is unclear if he suffered any injuries in the collision.

Head injuries can often have long-term impacts. Even those who are able to fully recover often only do so after an extensive period of recovery, including a great deal of medical interventions. Some people will never return to the same condition as before their injury. To help cope with the expenses stemming from a personal injury caused by another's negligence, many in New York choose to file a civil lawsuit. If such claims can be proved, victims can be awarded damages to help with the expenses stemming from their injuries.
