Motorcyclist ejected and seriously injured in New Jersey crash

Although summer is coming to a close, many individuals in New Jersey and elsewhere are still enjoying the warm weather by still taking their motorcycles out for short and long distance rides. Motorcycles are enjoyable and efficient to ride; however, they tend to pose a variety of risks to those that travel on them. Due to their small size, other motorists frequently fail to notice them traveling nearby or traveling in oncoming traffic in an intersection. The failure to be attentive and uphold their duty to drive safely could result in a negligent driver causing a motorcycle crash.

According to recent reports, a motorcyclist was thrown from his bike following a collision with an automobile on August 31. Based on reports, the crash occurred around 9:45 a.m. on Middle Road located near Allocco Park in Holmdel, New Jersey. Because the collision caused the motorcyclist to be ejected from his bike, he suffered serious injuries.

Emergency crews reported that the biker suffered injuries to his head, arms and legs. Injuries were also reported to the driver of the other vehicle; however, these injuries were deemed minor and the driver refused medical attention.

An investigation is still ongoing at this time. Authorities are unsure how the crash happened or who was at fault. Thus, no charges have been filed at this time. Following investigation, police will be able to establish cause and even determine fault. Those harmed in a motorcycle crash may have recourses available to them. A personal injury claim could help the victim hold a negligent party accountable and help with the recovery of compensation for losses and damages suffered in the crash.
