An accident of any kind can be stressful, especially for the family of the victims. A motorcycle accident can be even more severe, as riders often don't have much protection from the wreck. It's important to know the legal options available for those involved in motorcycle accidents, which may mean receiving compensation for medical bills and pain and suffering. On Dec. 20, an East Brunswick man reportedly struck a motorcycle and its driver with his car, which threw the motorcyclist to the street. The man then fled the scene, dragging the motorcycle with him for two miles, according to police. The man, 47, was stopped after police noticed the sparks coming from his Nissan Altima.
