Connecticut motorcycle drivers are back on the road in full force. Nice weather has tempted many to take to the road for a little adventure. Some riders choose to take a passenger along for the ride. In the event of a crash, both the biker and any passenger may suffer serious motorcycle crash injuries.
From 1976 until 1989, motorcyclists were required to wear an approved helmet, but the laws have changed. These days, only riders under the age of 18 must comply with a helmet law. In this case, it is reported that neither the driver nor the passenger was wearing a helmet.
The 21-year-old driver lost control of his bike and began to slide all over the roadway, hanging on for dear life. The passenger, just 19 years old, was unable to stay on board and was ejected as a result. Reportedly, she suffered serious injuries as a result.
When a Connecticut motorcycle crash results in a passenger suffering an injury, the victim may not know what to do next. Medical bills, lasting physical injury and other concerns can be difficult to contend with when a victim is already suffering. In many cases, an experienced attorney can step in and represent a victim that has suffered a serious injury. In some cases, a victim may want to hold the driver responsible for the crash accountable for his or her suffering in a court of law, and under such circumstances, an attorney may be able to make quick work of the legal steps necessary to do so.
