Cleveland, OH (June 16, 2021) – A Vermillion man sustained critical injuries in an auto accident in Erie County on Sunday evening. At approximately 8:10 p.m., on June 13, emergency crews were requested at the scene of an accident on Perkins Avenue.
Reports provided by local news sources show that 43-year-old Michael Sandy was traveling east on Perkins Avenue while utilizing a 2004 Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
While traveling down the roadway, 42-year-old Arthur Cox turned west from a private drive onto Perkins Avenue in a 2004 Acura, causing both vehicles to collide.
Sandy was ejected from his vehicle, resulting in severe injuries. The man was transported via Life Flight helicopter to MetroHealth Medical Center for the treatment of serious injuries. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the victim injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
Motorcycle Accidents in Ohio
Statistics provided by the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) show that more than 3,800 motorcycle crashes take place throughout our state each year. These incidents claim the lives of over 150 people each year while leaving over 3,100 others injured. Although there are numerous instances where motorcycle crashes leave victims with minor injuries, thousands of people require hospitalization due to debilitating injuries caused by their crashes.
Many injured parties are rushed to area hospitals for emergency treatment for spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and brain injuries resulting from their crashes. Although helmets are effective in saving lives, we continue to see riders who fail to utilize them while out on our roadways. In several instances, motorcycle riders are left with injuries that leave them permanently impaired and unable to return to work for the rest of their lives. Rather than enjoying activities and performing tasks without incident, they are left with pain and suffering that impact their mental, physical, and financial health and wellbeing. The time immediately following a traffic-related incident can be extremely overwhelming. This is particularly true for riders who are left with tens of thousands of dollars in medical costs for their injuries while being unable to return to work. Rather than move forward alone after a motor vehicle accident, victims should reach out to a motorcycle accident attorney in Cleveland to explore legal options available to them. Those injured in motorcycle accidents due to the negligence of others may be entitled to compensation to help alleviate the financial burdens they face moving forward.
