Motorcyclist suffers catastrophic injury and dies in crash

Motorcyclists in New York undoubtedly enjoy the freedom and excitement that comes with being on their bikes on the open roadway. The happiness they feel with the activity does not eliminate the dangers they face when they are riding. Motorcycle riders are notoriously vulnerable if they are in a motor vehicle accident. Without the protection that a person in a car has, there can be catastrophic injury and death in a motorcycle accident. Those who are affected by a motorcycle-car accident or with any other vehicle must be aware of how to move forward with a legal filing to be compensated.

A 31-year-old man riding a 2003 Suzuki motorcycle died in a crash with a car. That accident happened shortly before noon when his motorcycle collided with a 2002 Toyota being driven by a 23-year-old woman. The man was rushed to the hospital where he was declared dead. Law enforcement impounded both vehicles to check them and their investigation is ongoing to determine what happened.

There are numerous outcomes to a motorcycle accident and all can cause significant problems to the individual and his or her family. When there is a crash, the person on the motorcycle can suffer broken bones, internal injuries, an injury to the spinal cord, head trauma, lose a limb and more. This can lead to the need for extensive medical care with the accompanying costs. It might even mean that the person will not be able to care for him or herself and will need to have assistance 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If there is a fatality, the family left behind will have to think about how they are going to move forward without their loved one.

In this accident, a motorcyclist died after his bike collided with a car. The details of the accident are still being sifted through by law enforcement. While that is happening, his family needs to protect themselves by discussing the matter with an attorney to consider their options.
