Man suffers serious injury in Maryland motorcycle accident

The most dangerous place on the road for a motorcycle may be an intersection. If other drivers fail to notice the smaller vehicle, the operator of the motorcycle may be in danger of serious injury should a collision occur. A recent accident at a Maryland intersection resulted in multiple injuries.

The incident occurred just before noon on a Sunday when a 26-year-old woman was heading eastbound in her SUV. She approached an intersection and allegedly failed to stop at the stop sign. As she entered the intersection, a motorcycle traveling northbound collided with her vehicle. The 66-year-old operator was seriously injured when he was thrown from the motorcycle.

None of the passengers in the SUV were badly injured, but medical responders transported them to area hospitals for treatment of minor wounds. However, the operator of the motorcycle was flown to Baltimore Shock Trauma by helicopter. The extent of his injuries was not released to the media. Although charges have not been filed against the driver of the SUV, police believe the accident resulted when she ran the stop sign.

Because they are not protected by an automobile, motorcycle operators are more vulnerable to critical injuries in the event of an accident. It is likely that the injuries suffered by the motorcycle operator will result in pain and suffering for some time to come. Such injuries may mean extensive hospital stays, prolonged therapy and prescription medications that will bring financial burden to the victim's family. By consulting an attorney, a Maryland resident who suffers a serious injury through the negligence of others can discuss the options for seeking legal recourse.
