One injured in a motorcycle-truck crash in West Virginia


West Virginia drivers understand that some vehicles on the roadways are more prone to accidents than others. Massive trucks often fill the major roads due to the constant demand for ground shipments. Additionally, during the warmer months, motorcyclists are seen traveling on all types of roadways. Both of these vehicles have a tendency to be involved in accidents due to their size. Large semi-trucks and tractor-trailers cannot maneuver as well as smaller vehicles and will often have large blind spots. In contrast, motorcycles are very small and maneuver quickly between lanes. They can often do so unnoticed, especially in blind spots.

West Virginia authorities recently responded to a collision involving a motorcycle and a truck. Occurring near the area of 1 Civic Center Plaza, the truck-motorcycle collision happened around 12:45 p.m. Details surrounding the accident are not available at this time

It is not clear how this motorcycle crash occurred, but it was reported that one person was injured in the accident. The accident remains under investigation in order to determine cause and liability.

If a driver was negligent, the injured party may be able to file a personal injury claim against the driver. Negligence could be based on factors such as speeding, failing to maintain a lane or failing to stop or yield. This cause of action could seek to cover medical bills, damages and pain and suffering.

Determining the cause of an accident may take some time and proving liability can take even longer. That makes it especially important for injured parties to take immediate action to pursue a claim for compensation against the responsible party or parties.
