Man suffers brain injuries in New York motorcycle crash

The body works in miraculous ways. However, brain injuries are often difficult from which to recover. Even those who survive an injury to their head may face long-term physical and mental consequences as a result. Unfortunately, a man in New York is in critical condition following a motorcycle crash.

The incident happened one day in September. According to reports, the injured victim was riding on the back of a dirt bike that was taking part of what reports described as "a mass motorcycle ride." Unfortunately, the motorcycle reportedly slammed into the back of a vehicle that was attempting a turn.

The 24-year-old motorcycle passenger is said to have been thrown off the bike, causing him to strike his head on the pavement. He was transported to the hospital, reportedly as a result of a massive head injury. The driver of the motorcycle has been charged with drug possession, reckless endangerment and fleeing the scene of an accident. The driver of the car, a 33-year-old woman, is accused of drunk driving.

Some reports indicate that the man may not survive his brain injuries. If he does, he may face a future filled with medical bills and required extensive care. To help cope with the costs of the accident, the family of the deceased man has the option of filing a civil lawsuit against the parties thought responsible. An attorney with experience with such cases in New York can help choose the most appropriate course of action for the family's individual circumstances.
