By mid-May, temperatures in Worcester tend to be growing warmer every day. While the weather may still be variable this time of year, some local residents are likely eager to take their motorcycles, scooters or mopeds out on the road. Unfortunately, just as motorcycles are on the road this time of year, negligent drivers are a threat year-round. If one has been in a motorcycle accident, there are legal options for recovering against the negligent party.
At Ellis Law Offices, LLP the skilled personal injury attorneys are ready to hold negligent parties accountable. There are many reasons why a negligent party might cause a motorcycle wreck: failure to yield, being a distracted driver and texting while driving or not watching for motorcycles, bikes or pedestrians. In addition, common culprits such as speeding or intoxication can just as easily cause a motorcycle collision as they can a car accident. However, motorcyclists aren't protected by a vehicle's outer covering, so their chances for catastrophic injuries are high in many types of accidents.
Since motorcycle accidents have the potential to cause such extreme injuries, the medical bills for an accident victim can be sky-high. However, if the incident was caused by another's negligence, the injured party can recover damages to pay for medical expenses stemming from the accident. This negligence must be successfully demonstrated, however. Thus, it can be beneficial to utilize Massachusetts motorcycle accident lawyers who have more than 100 years' worth of combined experience and who have been in personal injury for over half a century.
The attorneys at Ellis Law Offices offer a no-cost consultation to motorcycle accident victims. Moreover, the lawyers do not receive payment unless their clients recover compensation. After an accident, compensation for damages may include medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages and the loss of one's ability to earn a living. In order to learn more about securing these damages, a victim can consult with a Worcester motorcycle accident attorney.
