Demand Your Money

Compensation for Motorcycle Accidents

Depending on your situation, you may be entitled to recover for any of the following losses:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Future medical expenses
  • Scarring
  • Probable loss of wages in the future
  • Property damage
  • Loss of relationship with your spouse
  • Other out-of-pocket expenses due to your injuries
  • Punitive damages (in certain cases)

Sometimes there are non-motorist causes of these serious motorcycle accidents such as:

  • Unleashed pets running into the path of the motorcycle
  • Driveway or yard debris in the roadway
  • Obstructive views caused by landscaping
  • Inadequate repair of the motorcycle
  • Motorcycle recalls

Bills Add Up

Getting Your Medical Expenses Paid After Your Accident

Generally, medical bills are not paid until after your case has been settled. However, if you have Medical Payments Coverage under your insurance policy, you may be able to pay your medical bills as they come in by making a claim against your own coverage. Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage, however, does not cover those injured in motorcycle accidents in Massachusetts. Also, if you have health insurance, your medical bills may be paid by your health insurance company.

If the other driver is at fault and has liability insurance, you may have the right to collect money to compensate you for your past and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and physical impairment. If the at-fault driver does not have insurance, you may be entitled to collect monetary benefits from your own insurance company if you purchased Uninsured Motorist Insurance Coverage.

Many different legal options exist. We can help you explore all of them. Remember, you only have a limited amount of time to take legal action to receive to compensation you deserve. In Massachusetts, the deadline (known as the statute of limitations) for taking legal action is 3 years from the time of your accident. In Connecticut, the deadline is 2 years. That might sound like a lot of time. But building a successful legal case often takes much longer than many people suspect. That’s why it’s critical that you contact us right away.

Know Your Rights

Insurance Companies and Motorcycle Accidents

Dealing with insurance companies after a motorcycle accident can be a nightmare. Instead of insurance providers working with you after your crash, the relationship is often adversarial. Even if the other driver clearly caused your collision, the insurance company might blame you for the accident.

Insurance companies do this for one, simple reason – money. They know that if they can claim that you caused the accident, they can avoid paying you the money you rightfully deserve for your crash. That’s why they make up excuses about you driving recklessly or out of control, even when you were faithfully following the rules of the road.

Insurance companies almost always start investigating accidents immediately after they happen. That’s why you need to launch your own investigation right away, while the evidence remains fresh. That’s why you need us. We know how to the find the facts you need to build a rock-solid legal case. Whether it’s visiting the scene of the accident, interviewing witnesses or consulting with accident reconstruction experts, we know what needs to be done to uncover the truth.

You only have one opportunity to obtain the compensation you deserve after your motorcycle accident. Seize it. Contact us and find out how we can help you. Call 1-800-WIN-WIN-1 right now and schedule an appointment with one of our exceptional attorneys.

You Deserve Justice

Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcyclists often sustain serious injuries or worse in accidents involving other vehicles. Protective gear such as helmets and durable clothing sometimes protects motorcyclists and passengers from harm, but in too many cases, these precautions simply do not go far enough.

Common motorcycle accident injuries include:

  • Head injuries
  • Brain damage
  • Pelvic fractures
  • Internal bleeding
  • Amputated limbs
  • Leg fractures
  • Foot fractures
  • Arm fractures
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Scarring/road rash
  • And in certain cases, death

Recovering from a serious motorcycle accident injury can sometimes take weeks or months or even longer. Along with emergency medical treatment, you or a loved one might need additional surgery, physical therapy and simply time to rest and recover.

During your recovery period, you might not be able to work. If the insurance companies are not cooperating after your crash, unpaid bills can quickly add up. And not just bills for your accident. You might suddenly have a hard time paying all your regular expenses if you’re out of work during your recovery.

Our attorneys have decades of experience handling such situations. We know how to find the evidence you need to get the money you deserve. That way, you can focus on what really matters – recovering from your accident.

Hold Drivers Accountable

Motorcycle Accident Liabilities

Anyone who contributed to the cause of your motorcycle accident may be held liable. As a result, that person might be responsible for financially compensating you for any expenses associated with your accident, including medical bills, lost income and more.

In motorcycle accidents involving injuries, it is typically the driver of the car or truck that caused your collision who is found to be at fault. However, proving that the other driver was responsible for your injuries might be much harder than you expect, even if the other driver clearly caused your crash. That’s because the driver might deny doing anything to cause your collision.

Other times, it’s the manufacturer of the motorcycle or its parts that may be responsible for compensating you. Reasons why include defective tires, brakes or other essential parts. Or perhaps there was something wrong with the vehicle that crashed into your motorcycle. Maybe a repair shop made a mistake when fixing the car or your motorcycle. Even a homeowner could be found to be liable to certain circumstances (debris in the road, dog causes crash).

Whatever the reason, you shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s mistakes or reckless behavior. That’s why it’s critical that you contact our law firm as soon as possible. We can investigate your accident to determine who’s liable for your crash. That way, you won’t have to pay for bills associated with your crash. You have too much at stake to wait. Contact us right now.

What Happened?

Motorcycle Accidents: Common Causes

How did your motorcycle accident happen? If your accident involved another vehicle, odds are the other driver did something to cause your crash. That’s because most motorcycle collisions involve the negligence or carelessness of another driver. The most common causes of motorcycle accidents involve drivers:

  • Ignoring posted speed limits
  • Turning left without looking and crashing head-on into a motorcyclist
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Performing reckless maneuvers such as unsafe lane changes
  • Tailgating (following too closely behind a motorcycle)
  • Not paying attention while driving (texting, talking on the phone, etc.)

Motorcycle accidents happen for many other reasons. And even if your collision occurred due to one of the reasons listed above, it’s important to understand that the circumstances surrounding every single accident are unique. That’s why we want to meet with you and learn more about your motorcycle crash as soon as possible.

As your attorney, we can investigate your motorcycle accident and find the facts you need to build a strong, legal case. Each type of accident requires different kinds of evidence. And based on years of experience handling such cases, we know exactly where to look to uncover the truth. Whether it’s consulting with accident reconstruction experts, interviewing witnesses or visiting the scene of your crash, we’re prepared to do whatever it takes to win your case.

You didn’t do anything wrong. You shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s mistakes. Call 1-800-WIN-WIN-1 and schedule your free case evaluation right now. Our law firms have 20 offices located throughout Massachusetts and Connecticut to conveniently serve you.
