Studies have shown that one of the leading causes of motorcycle accidents involving another vehicle is motorists' failure to recognize or yield the right-of-way to oncoming motorcycles when turning. The Ohio Motorcycle Accident Lawyers with the law firm of Nurenberg, Paris, Heller & McCarthy explain that such an accident was recently responsible for claiming two lives and leaving one other person seriously injured.
According to an article published by The Columbus Dispatch, the crash occurred at approximately 10 a.m. Monday, October 28, at the intersection of Westerville Road and Albert Avenue in Clinton Township. Reports from the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department indicate the motorcyclist was traveling northbound along Westerville. As he began to approach the intersection with Albert Avenue, the 19-year-old driver of a southbound Hyundai sedan attempted to turn left onto Albert in front of the bike. The motorcyclist did not have time to stop and collided with the passenger side of the vehicle.
The impact of the collision claimed the life of the motorcyclist, as well as the 24-year-old passenger in the Hyundai. The driver of the vehicle was seriously injured and was last listed in stable condition.
The law firm’s team of Ohio Personal Injury Lawyers recognizes how devastating the loss of a loved one to another person’s negligence can be and would like to send their deepest sympathies to the families of the victims.

Burned out semi-truck […]
Merging onto a highway or interstate is always a little stressful, even when traffic is light. That’s because you’re required to enter the roadway at a fast enough speed to keep up with other traffic, but you may have only a hundred feet to accelerate and reach that speed. And when traffic is heavy, there […]
When many people think of surgeons committing medical malpractice, they think of mistakes made during major operations like open-heart surgery, joint replacement, and organ transplantation. When surgeons make mistakes during these procedures, patients can develop serious and often fatal complications. However, there’s another type of surgery where major mistakes can happen that can also put […]
MRSA infections are one of the biggest risk factors of hospital stays, especially in people who had surgery or who are recovering from serious injuries and wounds. While they start as skin infections, they can quickly worsen and cause life-threatening infections in tissue, bones, and organs throughout the body. According to a 2020 study published […]
