The motorcycle rider involved in the crash suffered severe bruises as well as a broken collarbone and ankle but was back at home and expected to recover. According to reports, the woman was identified as the president of the Riders Against Government Exploitation motorcycle organization.
Because of the relative lack of protection in the case of a motorcycle accident, the victim’s injuries are often severe. In situations like these, recovery can be a long and challenging process, involving missed time from work, costly medical expenses and long-term rehabilitation therapy. If another party is found at fault — for distracted driving or failure to yield, for example — the victim may be able to file a civil suit seeking compensation from the courts. Money cannot magically fix the physical and emotional devastation from an accident, but it can help victims and their families move forward with their lives.
