Motorcycle accidents can require difficult rescue operations

Those who have a passion for riding motorcycles often face situations that the typical motorist does not consider. Both operators and passengers run the risk of being knocked off the machine or possibly being trapped under other vehicles as the result of serious motorcycle accidents. One recent Connecticut crash required extraordinary efforts to rescue a rider.

According to the report, there was a collision between a motorcycle and a pickup truck. The cause of the wreck is still under investigation, but somehow, the motorcycle and the individual operating it became lodged underneath the larger vehicle. Both the motorcycle and the rider were trapped and could not be freed without special equipment and the efforts of the emergency responders.

Rescue crews worked for approximately 15 minutes to extricate the bike from under the truck and subsequently free the unidentified rider. Emergency crews employed the Jaws of Life to separate the rider and the motorcycle from the truck's undercarriage frame. Once the person was freed, an ambulance crew provided transportation to a nearby medical facility.

Neither the nature of the rider's injuries nor the rider's prognosis was released to the public. It is currently unknown whether any charges will be filed in connection with this serious crash. Connecticut travelers who are seriously injured as a result of motorcycle accidents often sustain enormous monetary damages in the aftermath of these collisions. Whenever it is determined that these wrecks are the result of a negligent motorist, the victims -- or their surviving relatives in the event of a fatal crash -- are entitled to seek relief of their documented financial burdens through the filing of a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
