Fatal Ohio Motorcycle Accident Could Require More Investigation

In some motor vehicle accidents, the important questions are easy to answer. For example, when witnesses or videotapes show one car driving through a red light and hitting another car, it is simple to prove that the first driver is responsible for what happened. Other cases are not as clear and it can take an experienced and resourceful advocate to determine what went wrong and who is to blame.

A recent motorcycle accident that occurred near Fremont could serve as an example of the latter type of case. After apparently losing control of his motorcycle, the victim crossed into oncoming traffic where he was struck by semi-truck. At first glance, observers might assume that the motorcyclist caused his own injuries. However, the actual facts could be much more complicated. 

For example, because motorcyclists are so vulnerable and exposed, any negligent mistake by a nearby car can force motorcycles to take dangerous evasive action to avoid a crash. Situations like this can easily result in serious injuries for motorcyclists - while the driver who caused the emergency speeds away, oblivious to the consequences of his or her mistake.

In complicated motor vehicle injury cases like this, it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury law firm.
