Motorcyclist severely injured in accident

Anyone who has spent much time on a motorcycle knows that many motorists simply don't seem to see motorcyclists who share the streets with them. Being a member of this semi-invisible community can often be extremely dangerous, leading to severe injury or death when a driver fails to acknowledge you on the road and operates his or her vehicle without your safety in mind.

A Connecticut man suffered just such a fate recently when he was struck by an elderly driver. The motorcyclist was thrown from his bike when he collided with the vehicle making a left-hand turn, apparently unaware that the motorcyclist was present. Emergency crews and police responded quickly and were able to stabilize the man, who suffered life-threatening injuries.

To make an already serious situation frustratingly more complicated, the driver of the vehicle who struck the motorcyclist was driving uninsured. Police have indicated that the scene is still being investigated at the time of this writing, and no arrests have been made.

Riding a motorcycle can be both a liberating experience and a life-threatening one — especially in America, where the overwhelming majority of motorists drive automobiles and do not grow into their driving skills being taught to stay aware of vulnerable motorcyclists. If you are a motorcyclist, it is wise to consider re-examining your insurance to make sure you are comfortable with the level of coverage you are carrying, especially the coverage that specifically applies to uninsured drivers. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, the representation of an experienced attorney can help you pursue fair compensation for your injuries, and hopefully get back on the road safer and sooner.
