In the popular media, there is a perception that motorcycle riders are dangerous. Motorcyclists are often seen breaking laws, riding recklessly or at excessive speeds. However, in reality, most motorcyclists are law abiding citizens. They are people that enjoy the flexibility, fuel efficiency and thrill of a motorcycle. However, they are still at great risk of a motorcycle accident — but, not one caused by their own actions, but the negligence of other drivers.
When serious motorcycle accidents occur, riders frequently suffer serious and life-threatening injuries. Head injuries, broken bones, paralysis and disfiguring injuries are not uncommon. In these situations, motorcyclists need compensation to help pay for the costs caused by the accident.
Many may want to turn to insurance to help pay for these costs. However, according to Massachusetts insurance laws, most personal injury protection insurance policies will not cover injuries caused by a motorcycle accident unless additional insurance was purchased.
This does not mean that people cannot obtain compensation, though. If the accident was caused by the negligence of another driver, a personal injury suit can help. As our law firm knows, a personal injury suit can help people recover valuable compensation to pay for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other costs caused by the accident.
Our law firm has years of experience bringing these types of cases. We file these suits against negligent drivers following an accident investigation. Through this investigation we can gather evidence of the other person’s negligence. This evidence can be used to show the other person should be held financially responsible.
Following a severe motorcycle accident, people need to focus on their physical recovery, while not forgetting about their financial damages. Our website further explains how Massachusetts residents can do just that.
