Motorcycle Accidents in Ohio Can Cause Serious Injury

September 21, 2012

Auto Accidents

motorcycle accidentAmericans love thrills – they jump out of airplanes, go bungee jumping and drive fast cars.  These thrills come with an inherent risk of serious injury and death.  When an accident happens, the results can be devastating, especially when they involve a sporty vehicle.  Motorcycles are exceptionally dangerous because most times there is only a helmet between your head and another person’s vehicle or the pavement.

Even worse is that a tragic personal injury can be sustained on a sunny afternoon while driving on a residential country road, when there is no inclement weather.   On Sunday, September 16th in Germantown, Ohio, a local man was out enjoying an afternoon motorcycle ride.  He suddenly collided with an SUV and was thrown from his motorcycle.  He suffered a severe head injury, and police were unsure whether he was wearing a helmet.  Life-Flight was called to transport the victim away from the motorcycle accident to be treated for his injuries.

The motorcycle accident is still under investigation.  If it is determined that the SUV driver caused the accident, the driver can be facing driving citations as well as a personal injury lawsuit.  Personal injury lawsuits are necessary when one party causes a car accident through negligence or lack of care.  The injured party can recover compensation for physical injuries, property damage, pain and suffering, and medical bills.  To give you an idea of potential medical bills in a scenario like the one above, an emergency helicopter flight to a hospital can cost approximately $7,500.00, plus physician bills.
