Serious injuries in motorcycle accidents can be debilitating

When a Connecticut motorcycle rider is injured in a crash, the injuries are often more severe than those suffered by an individual in a larger vehicle. Those who survive motorcycle accidents might face physical and/or emotional challenges for the rest of their lives. Debilitating injuries can mean a lifetime of medical care and lifestyle adjustments.

Police are looking for witnesses to a recent accident involving a car and a motorcycle. According to preliminary reports, the vehicle was turning onto the street from a parking lot. At the same time, a woman on a motorcycle was heading right toward the other vehicle. The motorcycle collided with the car.

The woman was thrown off her motorcycle. She was airborne before crashing to the ground about 30 feet away from where the initial impact took place. She suffered at least an injury to her foot, and it is suspected that she suffered a traumatic head injury.

Her updated condition was not reported. Emergency personnel initially took her to Lawrence & Memorial Hospital. Later, however, she was transferred from there to Yale-New Haven Hospital for further treatment. As for the investigation, an accident reconstruction team was called to the scene to determine the cause of the crash. No charges have been filed at this time.

While police continue to investigate, the victim may well face a lengthy recovery. During that time, she will likely incur a significant amount of medical expenses, lost income and other financial losses. She may exercise her right to file a personal injury claim against the other driver, should she choose to do so. Successfully establishing negligence in a Connecticut civil court could result in an award of monetary damages applicable to serious motorcycle accidents of this nature.
