Motorcycles run in the blood of Maryland, which is not surprising. The state offers such scenic landscapes that riders can have a good time in virtually any season. A new generation of motorcyclists is embracing the lifestyle, but for one young rider, a terrible crash has warranted an accident investigation.
Preliminary reports indicate that a 17-year-old Maryland resident was driving a motorcycle on Route 108 near Clarksville. A passenger car began to make a left turn and ended up colliding with the motorcycle. The person in the car suffered no injuries, but the young man on the Harley Davidson was not so lucky.
The teen suffered injuries so severe he had to be taken by helicopter to a renowned shock trauma center across the state. He is currently in critical condition, and while doctors try to save his life, police have launched an accident investigation to find out more about the collision that nearly killed him. It is not certain if he will be able to recover from his injuries or if he will even survive.
Such an accident can change a young life forever. A victim may have lasting physical pain and suffering, medical bills pouring in, inability to work or attend school due to injury, and a myriad of other stressful situations that commonly follow a crash. When a victim is a minor, parents and guardians often bear the brunt of these circumstances. A family that wants to take legal action against a party that has been deemed responsible may want to contact an attorney. An attorney can help a family stay abreast of developments in the accident investigation and determine what course of legal action may be best to take to see that justice is served.
