Massachusetts motorcycle accident injures 2 riders

A 57-year-old woman and a 58-year-old man were both injured when they collided with a Jeep that was backing out of a driveway. The woman in this motorcycle accident had to be taken by helicopter to a hospital in a neighboring state because weather conditions didn't permit her to be taken to an appropriate Massachusetts hospital. The man was transported by ground to a local hospital. The driver of the Jeep was unharmed. No further information was available regarding the riders' current conditions.

Reports from the scene indicate that the woman was ejected from the motorcycle, flew over the roof of the Jeep and landed on the road on the other side. When emergency personnel arrived, the injured were being tended to by passersby one of which was a trauma nurse that lives in the area and another who is a nursing student. The damaged motorcycle was lying in the roadway.

The accident is still under investigation. With an accident such as this, the driver of the Jeep could possibly be found to be negligent if he or she was not paying attention or failed to yield to the motorcycle. What charges, if any, will be filed against the driver of the Jeep will be determined based upon the outcome of the official investigation.

Even if charges aren't filed against the driver of the Jeep, the victims of this motorcycle accident still have the right to file personal injury claims under Massachusetts law. When injuries or even death occur, the victim or victim's family could be entitled to monetary compensation for the costs and damages resulting from an accident. A tragic accident can cause financial devastation to a victim if the proper action isn't taken.
