A New Orleans motorcyclist sustained serious injuries when he was involved in a crash on Monday morning in Metairie. The accident occurred at 7:15 a.m. when the driver was heading north on Causeway Boulevard and a vehicle cut him off by turning in front of him. The impact of the motorcycle against the vehicle caused the rider to be thrown off the bike and land nearby. He was transported to a local hospital for non life-threatening injuries, including several broken bones.
Motorcyclists are vulnerable to other accidents involving other motorcists due to their size compared to other vehicles. Their obvious lack of visibility is what typically causes accidents involving motorcycles. Drivers have the responsibility of driving responsibly, including watching for other motorists. Those injured in a motorcycle accident due to the negligence of another driver should contact an accident attorney to recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
