Massachusetts Motorcycle Accident Claims
Serious injury or death in a motorcycle accident is common because of the lack of protection around the motorcyclist. To ensure safety, drivers should wear proper safety gear, have their bike taken in for routine maintenance, and pay extra attention to the surrounding traffic.
Even the most cautious motorcyclists cannot always compensate for the negligence of other drivers on the road. Cars and trucks have a duty to be aware of motorcyclists on the road, as they are often unseen in their blind spots until it is too late. Proper signaling when changing lanes or turning helps alert all drivers of pending traffic maneuvers.
A Massachusetts motorcycle accident can result in severe head trauma, spinal cord injury, and/or brain damage. These factors can land drivers in the hospital for weeks or months before the injury results in a wrongful death, in turn resulting in huge medical expenses and emotional stress on the family. Massachusetts wrongful death settlements seek to relieve some of the financial stress placed on the surviving family and provide for financial security.
