Portsmouth, New Hampshire, readers who like riding a motorcycle probably don't like hearing about accidents. Motorcyclists don't have the same kind of protection those in cars have, and a motorcycle accident can lead to serious injuries and death. If you've been injured in that way, you might want to seek legal advice so you can learn about claiming compensation.
A report from Nov. 11 states that two people were injured in a two-vehicle accident in Prescott, Arizona. According to the records, the motorcycle and SUV collided, sending two people to the local hospitals for treatment. The accident took place at around 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 10, along Iron Springs Road. According to the news, the motorcycle's driver, a man who was in his sixties, suffered injuries including cuts, bruising, and head injuries. Fire officials stated that he was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
The man's passenger, a woman in her sixties, also suffered from injuries, but she was wearing a helmet. Fire crews reported that the SUV had damage to its side door and rear bumper, and the passenger side rear window was also allegedly smashed during the accident. The two motorcyclists had to be taken to John C. Lincoln North Mountain by helicopter for treatment, but the SUV driver and passenger were not injured, according to the news. At this time, police reported that they are investigating the cause of the accident to look into whether alcohol was a cause.
Sometimes, seeing a motorcyclist on the road is difficult. SUVs, cars, and other vehicles might turn in front of a motorcyclist because of the cyclist being in their blind spots. If you've been injured because a driver was negligent, you may want to look into ways to seek compensation to cover your medical bills and other financial needs.
