Pennsylvania motorcycle crash injures 2

Pennsylvania State Police say that two motorcyclists suffered major injuries when they were struck by a pickup truck in Nockamixon Township on July 6. The motorcycle accident occurred on River Road near Narrows Hill Road around 4:30 p.m. River Road was closed south from the junction with Route 611 during the course of the investigation.

Police cited the driver of the pickup for entering or crossing a roadway and failing to yield the right of way to oncoming vehicles. The Hamilton Township, New Jersey, man driving the motorcycle was taken to Fountain Hill's St. Luke's University Hospital, where he remained for at least two days. Police said that his passenger was also taken to St. Luke's, but the hospital said that they had no record of her. Neither the driver of the pickup nor his passenger required medical care. Both of them had been wearing seat belts.

A major injury is one that may have potentially serious consequences. Examples include head injuries with loss of consciousness, suspected fractures and heavy bleeding. Any one of these conditions may involve huge medical expenses and extensive time off work, and it would not be unexpected for someone injured in an accident of this magnitude to seek compensation.

Any damages awarded to a plaintiff following a personal injury action will be reduced according to their own contribution to the accident, assuming that he or she was less negligent than the defendant. A personal injury lawyer could advise an accident victim on the amount of compensation that might be considered reasonable and represent the plaintiff in court if it is not possible for the parties to agree to a settlement.
