SUV Driver Fatally Strikes Police Officer on Bike.

There is a great deal of freedom that comes with riding a motorcycle. This freedom does not come without its elements of risk, however, and many motorcyclist forget how exposed they are while traveling on the roads. This is perhaps why motorcyclists make up a disproportionately large percentage of all of the serious injuries on the roads in Massachusetts. Specifically, the lack of protection makes them especially vulnerable when compared to other drivers and requires that bikers be afforded a greater duty of care by other motorists.

28 year-old Jordan Corder had been a Covina, CA police officer for nearly seven years when he was put on the motorcycle unit. Corder was a skilled driver and was noted for his service, particularly for his expertise regarding DUI enforcement and his work with Mothers Against Drunk Driving. Tragically, Corder lost his life while on duty when an SUV pulled onto a main road while he was directly in front of the vehicle, ejecting him from his motorcycle and onto the street. Corder was rushed to the hospital, but later died from his injuries.

Even an experienced driver and lauded police officer was able to sustain fatal injuries while riding his motorcycle. Despite being able to travel at the high speeds of a car, motorcycles offer none of the same protections, leaving drivers incredibly vulnerable to serious injury, or sadly as in this case, wrongful death.

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to substantial compensation for your physical injuries, as well as any emotional trauma and financial hardship caused by the accident.
