Motor vehicle accidents: Crash leaves motorcyclist with injuries

A recent accident involving a motorcycle and a vehicle in Oregon has left one person hospitalized with serious injuries. With little in the way of protective barriers to shield them from harm, motor vehicle accidents  involving motorcyclists run a greater risk of having catastrophic outcomes. Should the other party choose to flee the scene of such a crash, the victim could be left without much-needed medical attention for extended periods.

Law enforcement agents responded to reports of the crash at around 9 a.m. on a recent Thursday. While many of the details surrounding the crash remain unclear, police have advised that the driver of a motor vehicle crashed into a motorcycle and then proceeded to leave the scene. The rider of the bike suffered severe injuries in the crash and was transported to a nearby hospital for medical care.

Authorities have advised that the investigation is still underway and that they have yet to locate the driver who caused the crash. However, they have advised that witnesses were able to provide them with a description of the driver. Should this person be located and subsequently deemed at fault in the crash, the victim may wish to exercise his or her right to pursue accountability in civil court.

Motor vehicle accidents involving motorcycles can have disastrous consequences. Those who suffer serious harm in such an incident may wish to gain a better understanding of their available options for legal recourse, and they could benefit from consulting with an attorney for advice on how best to approach the situation. An attorney can examine the incident thoroughly and assist a client in Oregon in seeking the compensation entitled through a personal injury claim.
