Motorcycle Accident in Mesa Seriously Injures 1

Arizona motorcyclists are likely to encounter a variety of road surfaces from multi-lane expressways to rural back roads. The changing seasons mean that bikers may be out in scorching heat or during a rain storm, and if riding north, even greater weather changes may occur. But bikers in Arizona tend to be experienced and tend to be prepared for the circumstances that will present themselves on any ride, whether it is to work, to the grocery store, or simply to visit friends.

Unfortunately, bikers are at a high risk for sustaining serious or even fatal injuries in the event that a motorcycle accident occurs. In fact, Arizona is one of about a dozen states that regularly experiences more than 100 fatal motorcycle accidents every year which means that many family and friends are left to suffer serious losses when their loved ones are killed. Numerous factors contribute to lead to a motorcycle accident including distracted driving, speeding, failing to stop, and failing to yield the right-of-way. The thing most accidents have in common is that they are caused by a mistake on the part of one or more motorist involved.

Financial relief may be available under Arizona laws to those motorcyclist and passengers who are injured when an accident takes place. The right to seek relief belongs to a victim and may be available even when an at-fault driver does not receive a ticket in the crash. Speaking with a personal injury lawyer may help you understand your legal rights if you have been hurt in a Phoenix area accident.

A motorcycle crash occurred in Mesa around 4:00 p.m. yesterday and left the rider in critical condition, according to local authorities. The crash shut down traffic in the area of Gilbert and 8th Avenue as police investigated and emergency medical crews tended to the victim. The rider was taken to a trauma center in Scottsdale where the nature of his injuries and current condition are unknown, though his injuries are believed to be life threatening.



It is not clear what caused the accident to occur or whether any other vehicles or motorcycles were involved in the crash. Police are still reviewing the facts of the crash and making determinations as to the liability, if any, that may exist.
