Boston Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Riding a motorcycle is a unique experience. Not necessarily because it is more environmentally friendly, economical, or maneuverable, but because it offers camaraderie. Being a motorcyclist is about being part of a community. Unfortunately, not everyone else knows how to share the road with that community.
As a motorcycle enthusiast and avid rider, Tom Kiley, founder of the Kiley Law Group, knows firsthand the challenges facing Massachusetts motorcyclists every day. As a biker, you have the same right to travel the road as other vehicles, but the drivers of these other vehicles don’t necessarily know how to share the road with you. The negligence of other motorists is often the cause of motorcycle injury accidents. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident that you believe was caused by the reckless or negligent actions of another driver, you may be able to take legal action to recover compensation. Determining fault can be difficult, but speaking with an experienced attorney can help you determine your best options.
How We Can Help You
At the Kiley Law Group, we have successfully handled various motorcycle accident cases, lending us the experience, knowledge, and resources to investigate any accident and work toward the best possible outcome. We will gather all appropriate evidence, such as witness statements, the police report, and medical records, in order to present a strong case for compensation.
Motorcycle accident injuries are often catastrophic and may require months or even years of treatment and rehabilitative care. Injuries may even result in disability. Some common motorcycle injuries include traumatic brain injury, broken bones, and spinal cord injury. It is our job to hold the at-fault party responsible for the financial, physical, and emotional hardships motorcycle victims must face as a result of their negligence.
Damages We May Recover
If negligence was the cause of your motorcycle accident, you are entitled to pursue compensation from the at-fault party, whether it was a semi-truck driver who fell asleep at the wheel or a passenger car driver who changed lanes without checking to see if anyone was occupying it. A successful motorcycle accident claim may recover damages for pain and suffering, medical bills, future medical care, loss of wages, and emotional distress. In the event of a tragic wrongful death accident, a successful wrongful death claim can help your family obtain financial stability while it copes with the loss of a loved one.
Making a Well-Informed Decision
The aftermath of a motorcycle crash, especially one where you lost a loved one, can be confusing and overwhelming. The last thing you want to do is think about possibly going to court, but with the right representation, legal action can help you put your life back together and hopefully get you back on your motorcycle.

If you have been the victim of someone else’s negligence while driving a motorcycle in the state of Massachusetts, you may be well within your rights to pursue legal action.
While the process of pursuing a claim may seem overwhelming now, and no amount of money can undo the damage done, retaining the services of a dedicated personal injury attorney could be advantageous for a number of reasons:
- Medical Expenses: The primary reasoning behind any personal injury claim can be the mountain of medical bills that can follow in the wake of a motorcycle accident. Motorcycle injuries can take on many forms, from physical damage to emotional distress, to say nothing of the difficulties you may face in the future. All of these expenses can end up costing hundreds of thousands and, in some instances, may financially bury your family. You’ve already paid enough for someone else’s carelessness, why let the abuse continue?
- Insurance: With medical expenses, insurance companies aren’t far behind. It is common practice for agencies to aim for the lowest possible settlement when dealing with just about any motorist. Their processes can be deliberately confusing if not downright deceitful. For motorcyclists, the scrutiny can be even greater. Their underhanded tactics and dubious assertions can become incredibly complex. An experienced personal injury attorney can help clear the fog of claims adjusting and work as a representative on your behalf.
- Investigation: With decades of experience, the Kiley Law Group knows the value of a thorough investigation when it comes to motorcycle accidents. When pursing a successful claim it is critical to have as much information from the accident scene as possible. Tracking down photographs, police reports and surveillance footage are the first steps your legal team will take. Consulting with medical experts can demonstrate how your injuries were sustained and how the resultant damage has negatively impacted your life. Crash reconstruction experts can provide a clearer understanding of the events leading up to the wreck and determine who may be at fault.
