We understand the struggles that can come with motorcycle accidents.

It is no question: accidents do happen, especially when it comes to motorcycles. In fact, the U.S. boasts an estimated 4 million registered motorcycles. Tragically, thousands of motorcyclists are seriously injured or killed in various traffic accidents throughout the nation with each passing year. More than 200 motorcyclists died and 500+ were seriously injured on roads between 2010 and 2013 in Massachusetts alone. To support the victims and surviving loved ones of such events, we are deeply committed to getting the compensation that is deserved from the insurance companies and at fault operators.
The process following a motorcycle accident can be a complicated one for everyone involved. Not only are most injuries severe; to make matters worse, a majority of riders are unfairly accused of being at fault by irresponsible drivers. To combat this growing issue, we stay aware of every case to help motorcyclists receive the compensation they deserve and to keep any liability from landing on their shoulders by biased insurance companies.
Here are a few examples of other drivers’ fault:
- Cutting off the motorcyclist
- Driving through red lights and stop signs
- Failure to leave adequate room between their vehicle and the motorcyclist
- Distracted driving/Texting and driving/Driving under the influence
- Swerving into the motorcyclist
- Changing lanes without looking
- Failure to yield to the motorcyclist
As you can see, other drivers hold a large amount of responsibility when it comes to the safety of our motorcyclists – and yet they will try to get away with being reckless while blaming those they injured. As passionate motorcycle accident attorneys, it is our mission to make sure that does not happen – you can trust us to be on your side every step of the way.Handling Insurance
