Massachusetts Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Dealing With Serious Motorcycle Accidents

If you have been in a motorcycle accident, get help from a team of experienced personal injury attorneys.

Motorcycles, scooters, mopeds and motorized bicycles are popular. With their increased popularity and use as a mode of transportation comes a marked rise in motorcycle accident statistics. In most cases, it is not the motorcyclist who causes the accident, but the automobile operator.

Motorcycle operators and passengers have a much greater chance of suffering serious personal injury or death in an accident. Serious injuries often result because a motorcycle offers little protection against another car or the surrounding environment.

Injuries Suffered In Motorcycle Accidents Are Often Severe

Common injuries in motorcycle accidents include fractured bones throughout the body, facial fractures, fractured skulls with associated traumatic brain injury (TBI), neurological injuries such as spinal cord injuries, paralysis, the loss or amputation of limbs, road rash and other disfiguring injuries. Injuries are often catastrophic or fatal.

In Massachusetts, a policy under personal injury protection (PIP) will not pay for the medical bills incurred in a motorcycle accident. If the policyholder opted to pay for additional coverage under medical payment (med pay), then the motorcycle policy may pay for such medical bills. If the cyclist’s policy does not include med pay, then these medical bills can be recovered against the other at-fault operator, but to do so, the negligence of the operator must be proven.
