Motorcycle Accidents

Our Experience Can Help You After A Motorcycle Accident

As fuel efficiency has become more important, and as more recreational riders take to Massachusetts roads, motorcycle ridership has increased. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents have also increased.

The consequences of a motorcycle crash are serious and can be fatal. Unlike an automobile, a motorcycle does not offer structural protection.

We pride ourselves on our ability to use this knowledge to help our clients through this difficult experience.

Our personalized approach can help guide you through the legal process.

Traumatic Brain Injury And Other Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycle accidents can result in a multitude of injuries, including:

  • Closed head wounds or traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injury or paralysis
  • “Road rash” and scarring
  • Complex fractures
  • Amputation
  • Wrongful death

The Importance Of Investigation And Insurance Coverage For Motorcyclists

In Massachusetts, motorcycle riders do not have access to PIP (personal injury protection) coverage in their motor vehicle insurance. This means that medical treatment is not covered by your motorcycle insurance after an accident.

However, your health insurer may not be aware of the fact that your injuries are the result of a motorcycle accident, as opposed to a car accident. If you are injured and make a claim against your health insurance, they will often direct you to apply for payment through PIP. This confusion can lead to delays in treatment or reimbursement.

A personal injury attorney who is familiar with motorcycle insurance law can help you through the maze and help you get appropriate treatment. Not only can our lawyer negotiate with your own insurance companies, but part of our investigation of your claim will include researching all of the at-fault driver’s insurance policies for coverage that can help compensate you for your injuries and losses.

Clients Are Our Priority

Your case is a priority to us the moment you become a client of our firm. We will start investigating your claim right away. We understand the importance of gathering support for your case early, such as taking witness statements while the accident is still fresh and recording skid marks and other evidence before traffic and weather erodes it.

We always follow through on our research by keeping our clients informed about developments in their cases. As our client, you always have the final say about how we proceed with your case.
