A motorcyclist remains in serious condition after he was struck by a white
pickup exiting a parking lot. He was flown to a nearby hospital after
sustaining injuries to his head and torso. Witnesses revealed that he
had been traveling westbound in an outside lane when a white pickup that
was pulling out of the south entrance of a parking lot hit him.
The motorcyclist laid his bike down and skidded 60 feet before he hit into
the left front end of the white pickup. He finally stopped on the eastbound
side of the road. The police and fire departments, along with sheriff's
deputies and medics quickly responded to the early evening accident. So
far, no one has been charged in the
Nothing further is known about the motorcyclist, and no further information
is known about his injuries. Authorities are investigating the accident
in an attempt to figure out how it happened or to discover if there was
any negligence on the part of the driver of the pickup truck. Although
the accident was not a hit and run, the driver of the truck could very
well have been distracted.
This motorcyclist, as well as others who have been seriously injured in
motor vehicle accidents, have the right to consult with an Austin personal
injury lawyer. Injuries can be debilitating, particularly if an individual
cannot return to work and risks losing wages. Injured parties may also
face seemingly insurmountable medical expenses.
Consulting with a personal injury attorney might help as they might be
able to obtain compensation for damages, such as serious injuries, pain
and suffering and loss of life.
