Even in some of the more favorable outcomes, those involved in motorcycle accidents in New Jersey can be seriously injured. Sometimes, due to the lack of almost any protection, victims’ injuries suffered in motorcycle accidents can be catastrophic. A recent hit-and-run motorcycle accident has left one motorcyclist very lucky to be alive.
The accident occurred in the middle of June in Mount Laurel. According to the police, a 58-year-old man was injured when the motorcycle he was operating was struck by a car. The motorcycle and car were crossing an intersection when the car changed lanes.
The driver of the car then fled the scene of the accident. The motorcycle operator was transported to a local medical center. The extent of his injuries is currently unknown. The police are investigating the crash and are currently searching for the hit-and-run driver.
Being involved in any kind of motor vehicle accident can be a difficult pill to swallow. Leaving the scene of an accident involving personal injuries is a serious offense. When individuals are seriously injured in motorcycle accidents in New Jersey, they often have options — if the injury was caused by the negligence of another party, a personal injury claim may be appropriate. Successfully navigated, this claim can help lessen some of the financial difficulties that are often incurred due to being involved in such an accident, including hospital bills and lost pay. Contacting an experienced personal injury lawyer is often one of the first steps to take on a victim’s road to recovery.
