Late November is not a time of year when most people would expect to see motorcyclists on the roads of Connecticut, but the winter weather hasn’t been all that bad yet, so our readers are probably still seeing some motorcycles around. Unfortunately, not all drivers pay attention to motorcycles on the roads, and that is when deadly accidents can occur.

In fact, according to a recent report, on November 29 a motorcyclist was struck by a vehicle in Milford, Connecticut, leaving the motorcyclist with injuries that were so severe that he had to be hospitalized. To make matters worse, the driver of the other vehicle involved, a 20-year-old man from West Haven, reportedly fled the scene after the collision.

Fortunately, a person who witnessed the collision involving the vehicle and the motorcycle followed the driver who fled the scene, calling law enforcement officials while in pursuit. The reports indicate that the witness followed the 20-year-old hit-and-run suspect all the way to his home, which is where he was apparently arrested by police. The driver will reportedly face criminal charges of “failure to grant right of way” and “evading responsibility.”

The initial reports did not indicate the extent of the motorcyclist’s injuries, other than that he required hospitalization. But, it is easy to imagine that the motorcyclist may have extensive injuries, which may require a prolonged hospital stay and weeks or even months of rehabilitative care, which could cost thousands of dollars in medical bills. As it appears that the 20-year-old hit-and-run suspect caused this motorcycle accident, the injured victim may be able to seek financial compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
