At about 3:43 p.m. on Wednesday, December 11, a motorcyclist was injured in a crash with a turning vehicle in Apple Valley, reported the Daily Press. While traveling northbound on Apple Valley Road, the driver of a Hyundai sedan failed to see a southbound motorcyclist and turned left in front of him onto Symeron Road. Emergency responders transported the rider to St. Joseph Health, St. Mary by ambulance; he was subsequently flown to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center. Authorities are investigating the accident.
Motorcycles not only lack the stability and protection of cars but also are less visible to other drivers on the road, making riders more susceptible to collisions and serious accident-related trauma. The number of fatalities suffered on motorcycles in 2010 was 30 times the number in cars, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Crashes claimed the lives of 4,388 motorcyclists in 2011.
When a driver’s negligence causes an accident that results in serious trauma, he or she may be held liable for the cost of the injured party’s recovery through the civil claims process. Recovery-related expenses include medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering. For more information on the personal injury claims process, please call 866-981-5596.
Everyone at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to the motorcyclist who was injured in the crash with the turning vehicle.
