Motorcycle Accidents in NH on the Rise

Summer weather in New Hampshire brings motorcycle rides out in full force. With an abundance of spectacular scenery, NH offers motorcycle enthusiasts great destination rides.  Start a day in the White Mountains, travel through the Lakes Region and end your day at the Seacoast.  NH offers motorcyclists some wonderful adventures. Despite the joy and freedom associated with motorcycling,  there has been an increase in motorcycle accidents and fatalities in New Hampshire lately.  During the month of July alone there have been a handful of serious and or fatal accidents involving motorcycles. Such collisions have occurred throughout the state including Manchester, Nashua, Concord and other communities. share roadhutterstock_190724723

Nashua, NH for instance, was voted  Best City to Live in America which is quite a feat for any U.S. city.  It certainly deserves the title given its ideal bedroom community setting amidst dozens of shopping outlets, representing almost any American store chain, along with its vast array of  multicultural dining spots.

But Nashua, like any other American city, is also home to serious motorcycle collisions and auto accidents. And these collisions can be life changing for an injured accident victim, especially motorcycle rides and their passengers.

How Long Will My New Hampshire Accident Case Take to Resolve?

The New Hampshire injury attorneys at Tenn And Tenn, P.A. have been representing injury victims for more than twenty (20) years.  Most of them come to the office and ask the same question – -“How long will my accident case take to resolve?” Personal Injury Claim

We have prepared a simple guide to help answer that question and to illustrate the procedures involved concerning the “typical” personal injury case.

The Accident Scene and Determining Fault

 If you have been involved in an automobile or motorcycle collision, it is important that the police be called to the scene to document the facts of the event, obtain witness statements, and determine fault. A successful NH injury claim requires that another party or entity be responsible for the collision and your resulting damages.  In other words, you must be injured through no fault of your own.

Medical Costs from Lower Extremity Motorcycle Injuries

As a NH Motorcycle Attorney and avid motorcycle rider, I know first -hand the dangers inherent in riding motorcycles. I have not only witnesses, but have experienced the havoc caused by inattentive motorists who drive as if they own the road.  Fortunately, I have never sustained any real injury (knock-on-wood).  At Tenn And Tenn, PA., we have represented injured NH motorcyclists for more than 20 years and are keenly aware of the costs of medical care.  The National Highway Safety Administration commissioned a study to examine the costs associated with lower extremity injuries from motorcycle collisions.  Some of the significant findings are below.

A motorcyclist suffered serious injuries and had to be airlifted to a local hospital after he was hit by a 96-year-old driver, according to a recent article in the Nashua Telegraph. The accident occurred at the intersection of Daniel Webster Highway and Veterans Drive.

The driver of the car involved in the accident told police that she couldn’t see the light because of a large truck in front of her, but when the truck and the car to her left decided to drive through the light, she did too, realizing too late that the light was red. Her car struck an SUV traveling through the intersection, then struck the motorcyclist. The SUV driver was not injured. The motorcyclist was taken too Massachusetts General Hospital, where he is in fair condition and is expected to recover from his injuries.

Based on the driver’s and eyewitness’s comments, Nashua police believe that the driver’s decision to drive into the intersection despite the red light caused the crash, and that neither alcohol nor drugs were involved. However, police are investigating the accident more closely.
