A Newport Beach police officer suffered serious injuries in a motorcycle collision with a four-door Mercedez-Benz on August 1‚ 2011‚ around 10:44 a.m. on Jamboree Road and San Joaquin Hills Road.
According to Lt. Rob Morton of the Newport Beach Police Department‚ the police officer suffered a leg injury in this crash and was immediately transported to Hoag Hospital for treatment. From the limited information available in this news report‚ it is unclear what led to this serious motorcycle wreck.
There are several questions here. Did alcohol or drugs play a part? Was the car driver fatigued at the time of the crash? Was speed or distraction a factor? Was there an auto defect or mechanical malfunction that caused the car driver to lose control? We trust officials are looking into these and other issues in order to determine how or why this motorcycle collision occurred.
The injured police officer should consult with an experienced Orange County motorcycle crash lawyer who would educate him about his legal rights and options and would assure that the at-fault party is brought to justice. A personal injury lawyer would help the biker obtain fair compensation to cover treatment‚ hospital and medical costs‚ loss of wages‚ loss of earning capacity‚ and other accident-related damages.
Our law office sincerely hopes that the injuries suffered by the motorcycle cop do not prove life threatening and heal soon.
