A 59-year-old male doctor was injured in a New Jersey accident after his motorcycle collided with an SUV. According to The Asbury Park Press, the motorcycle accident occurred on Route 33 at West Bangs Avenue in Neptune. Officials say the motorcyclist crashed into an SUV that was turning left. He was rushed in critical condition to the same hospital where he works. No summonses were issued, but an investigation of this New Jersey intersection accident is underway.
It is common for motorcycle accidents to occur at intersections because negligent drivers can easily overlook smaller vehicles. Drivers who are distracted, speeding, or inattentive may run through a stop sign or fail to properly yield the right-of-way to an oncoming motorcycle when making a turn. Drivers who fail to yield the right-of-way to a motorcyclist can be held liable for the damages they cause.
A motorist does not have to be cited by the authorities to be held civilly liable for an accident. A skilled attorney can help an injured victim file a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver to hold the negligent driver accountable for the losses suffered in the accident. In such cases, compensation may be available for the victim’s medical bills, time away from work, pain and suffering, and other related losses.
