Motorcyclist struck by female driver in Newport

Rhode Island isn't a large state, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have risks that people face. Motorcyclists, in particular, become exposed when faced with dangerous drivers and truckers. They're on smaller vehicles, have less protection and are usually more difficult to see, making them more likely to become victims of a serious collision.

Take for example a recent crash in which a car and motorcycle collided. Photos of the scene show a passenger vehicle with its front end dented inward and a motorcycle unfit to drive.

The crash caused Broadway to close for a period of time while the Newport Police responded. They reported that the driver of the motorcycle, a man, had to be taken to a local hospital. He was, according to their information, speaking to others and responsive at the scene despite not wearing a helmet.

A female driver at the scene did not have to go to the hospital. While there has been no information about the cause of the crash, intersection collisions like these tend to be a result of drivers making left-hand turns into the path of the motorcyclist, giving him or her little to no time to stop.

As a motorcyclist, crashes like these are scary for you and your family. You may already worry about getting into collisions, but seeing one close to home makes it all-too real. No matter what happens, people who are hurt by others have a right to look into obtaining compensation. Your attorney can help you if you get into a crash, so you can file a claim for a fair settlement.
