Thousands of bikers in the United States are injured each year in motorcycle accidents. To make matters worse, injured Massachusetts motorcyclists account for a disproportionately large percentage of all of the serious injuries on the roads in Massachusetts. More specifically, Massachusetts motorcycle riders are nearly 39 times more likely to die in Massachusetts motor vehicle accidents than passengers in Massachusetts motor vehicles and nearly nine times more likely to be seriously injured. This is partly the result of the limited to no physical protection available to Massachusetts bikers when they are in Massachusetts motor vehicle accidents.
Riding a motorcycle is a thrilling experience for most Massachusetts bikers, but people who enjoy riding a motorcycle face the prospect of sustaining significant injuries if they are involved in an accident with another motor vehicle. A Massachusetts cyclist clearly has little protection when compared to operators of cars and other Massachusetts motor vehicles. As a result, a Massachusetts motorcyclist is greater than three times more likely to be killed or permanently injured in an accident than an automobile accident victim.
Serious Massachusetts motorcycle crashes have been continuously rising since 1997 due to a more than ninety percent increase in motorcycle sales. The increase in sales is greatest with respect to the newer, faster and bigger machines. An increase in the number of older, first time motorcycle enthusiasts is also contributing to the increase in Massachusetts motorcycle accident injuries. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently reported more than 16,000 injuries and 3,000 motorcycle- related fatalities on an annual basis in the United States. These statistics are likely to increase in upcoming years.
Many Massachusetts motorcycle accidents are the direct result of the negligence, recklessness and carelessness of other Massachusetts drivers. These negligent drivers frequently pull out in front of or into motorcycles without any regard for the rider’s presence or safety. More than 25% of all Massachusetts motorcycle accidents occur when a motorcycle crashes into a stationary object. Other Massachusetts biker accident injuries are caused by defective or dangerous products and the manufacturer’s disregard for Massachusetts law by its “failure to warn” about the safe operation of the motorcycle and the inherent dangers involved in motorcycling. Poorly maintained Massachusetts property and roads are also contributing factors to a number of bike accidents in Massachusetts.
Our Boston, Massachusetts motorcycle accidents lawyers and Boston motorcycle accident wrongful death lawyers are experts in handling all types of Massachusetts motorcycle accident claims. Our Boston motorcycle accidents lawyers have handled Massachusetts cases involving drivers of automobiles who make a lane change without indicating or otherwise signaling, debris and other obstacles or hazards found on roads, decreased visibility because of structures blocking vision or weather conditions, the failure of Massachusetts automobile drivers to pay attention, and defective or improperly installed parts of motorcycles which resulted in explosions and fires after a Massachusetts crash.
In addition, our Boston, MA motorcycle accident attorneys have handled Massachusetts motorcycle accident claims arising out of bikers’ attempts to try to avoid an accident. This can happen, for example, when a Massachusetts motorcyclist observes that a car has improperly changed lanes without indicating or signaling, making it impossible for the motorcyclist to avoid colliding with the automobile. In such a circumstance, the only way for a motorcyclist to avoid the ensuing Massachusetts motor vehicle accident may be to lay the bike down on the shoulder of the road, which can cause serious and permanent injuries or even death.

Massachusetts motorcyclists unfortunately are not entitled to no-fault insurance protection, namely the insurance that is provided to other Massachusetts motor vehicle drivers and passengers under Massachusetts PIP (Personal Injury Protection) laws and insurance coverages. Typically, PIP pays for the injured Massachusetts motor vehicle accident victim’s medical expenses and lost wages regardless of whether the Massachusetts victim caused his or her own injuries. It is frequently necessary for Massachusetts motorcycle accident victims to obtain the services of one of our expert and highly skilled Boston, MA motorcycle accident attorney specialists to obtain the compensation to which he or she is entitled, in large part due to the fact that Massachusetts motorcycle accident victims are not entitled to no-fault insurance protection and benefits.

Third, the drivers’ names and addresses should be recorded, in addition to the car owners’ names and addresses, their insurance companies and their coverage information. Finally, if possible, photographs of the motorcycle accident scene and resulting injuries should be taken.
In order for a Massachusetts motorcycle accident victim to recover compensation arising out of a Massachusetts motorcycle accident, it is necessary that the injured party establish that the negligence of the other party caused their injuries.
