Motorcycle accidents rarely end with minor injuries

Connecticut motorcycle riders are willing to assume certain risks in order to enjoy the benefits. Motorcycle accidents rarely end with minor injuries. Riders suffer injuries that can leave them with permanent disabilities -- if they survive at all.

The Connecticut State Police recently reported that three motorcycles were involved a crash. At approximately 12:30 p.m., a 26-year-old man was heading east, approaching a curve in the roadway. Two more motorcycles were approaching the same curve from the opposite direction. As the three entered the curve, one of the motorcycles ridden by a 68-year-old man collided with the eastbound motorcycle. The third motorcyclist, a 66-year-old man, was not able to keep from being caught up in the crash.

All three men were ejected from their bikes. The 68-year-old man's injuries were severe, and he was transported by helicopter to an area hospital where he later died. No specifics were given regarding the injuries suffered by the other two men other than to say that their injuries were serious. They were both transported to a Massachusetts hospital, but their current conditions were not reported.

The accident remains under investigation, and it is unclear which rider is thought to have caused the crash. Most likely, the decedent's surviving family members and the eastbound rider would benefit from an understanding of their rights and responsibilities in connection with this tragedy. Should one or more civil lawsuits be commenced, the party or parties found to be negligent by the court could end up being held liable for damages often awarded regarding serious motorcycle accidents.
