Motorcycle crash occurred at intersection known for car accidents

Nearly every New Jersey town or city has at least one intersection that area police and residents consider to be more dangerous than others. The number of serious or fatal car accidents that take place at or near those intersections usually punctuates this fact. An accident at one such intersection in the state recently sent a motorcycle rider to the hospital.

According to preliminary police reports, the accident took place around 4:39 p.m. on a recent Wednesday. The 19-year-old man on the motorcycle was heading north. At the same time, a 57-year-old woman was headed south.

As the woman's vehicle began making a left turn to head east, it did so into the path of the motorcycle, which collided with it. The impact threw the rider off his motorcycle. He suffered unknown but serious injuries for which emergency responders transported him by helicopter to an area hospital. His current condition is not known. The driver of the other vehicle involved did not suffer any injuries.

Reports noted that two other accidents occurred approximately 10 days prior on a previous Monday in East Brunswick near this one. In one crash, an individual died after slamming head-on into a metal guard rail. The other crash took the life of a 75-year-old man.

As for the motorcycle rider, he could exercise his right to file a personal injury claim against the woman driving the other vehicle. If he establishes through the appropriate evidence that the New Jersey woman's negligence caused or contributed to his injuries, he could receive an award of damages that other victims across the state might receive after car accidents. Any monetary restitution he receives could help with his current and future medical expenses, along with other damages he sustained.
