Injuries and Damages in Motorcycle Accident Claims

Motorcycle accidents tend to result in severe—and often fatal—injuries to riders, who lack the protections of those in passenger vehicles. The accompanying medical expenses, lost earnings, and other damages can financially overwhelm injury victims and their families.

These injuries often require costly emergency treatment and long-term rehabilitation, and some necessitate lifetime care. Our experienced personal injury attorneys understand the expenses associated with severe injuries, and we also know that initial insurance company settlement offers are rarely adequate for victims’ needs.

Even when wearing helmets and protective clothing, bikers are vulnerable to catastrophic injuries in collisions. Severe injuries common in motorcycle accidents include but are not limited to:

  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Neck and spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Amputation injuries
  • Disfigurement

We work diligently to secure the financial peace of mind injury victims require to cope with:

  • Past and future medical treatment
  • Past and future earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage

If you lost a family member in a motorcycle accident caused by another’s negligence, our attorneys may be able to help you pursue compensation through a wrongful death claim.

This amount, however, may not be enough to pay for a victim’s total losses or complete medical needs.

Motorcycle Accidents and Massachusetts’ No-Fault System

Additional compensation for pain and suffering and out-of-pocket expenses can only be recovered in Massachusetts if the accident and injury meet certain benchmarks.

If injuries sustained in a collision result in the victim’s death, surviving family members can seek compensation through a wrongful death claim.

No-fault states like Massachusetts are unique from tort states in that personal injury lawsuits are generally prohibited unless the accident and the resulting injuries meet criteria known as a “tort threshold.” These criteria include:

  • The injured party must incur more than $2,000 in reasonable and necessary medical expenses
  • The injury requires amputation
  • The injury results in permanent hearing loss, broken bones, or disfigurement/scarring

The Massachusetts statute of limitations requires all injury claims be filed in court within “three years after the cause of action occurs.” Despite this three-year window, it’s in your best interests to discuss your case with an attorney as soon as possible after the incident occurs to ensure the preservation of evidence and establish contact with any witnesses. 

Our Team Can Handle Your Claim from Start to Finish

When you have the Jason Stone Injury Lawyers legal team on your side, you can focus on getting back on your feet while we focus on recovering the compensation to which you are entitled. From our very first conversation, our team will go to work protecting your right to compensation, will give you peace of mind and will spend our time fighting for a full financial recovery.

Our commitment to your well-being and satisfaction is summed up in our Stone Cold Guarantee®. Our attorneys are ready to do the heavy lifting so you can focus on getting better.

We will stand by you through the entire process, helping you understand what to expect and updating you on the status of your case. We can often prove you qualify to hold the at-fault driver liable and settle these cases without resorting to filing a personal injury lawsuit. However, we will not hesitate to take your case to court if necessary to get the full range of damages to which you are entitled.

MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT FAQs

  1. The most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
    • Distracted Drivers
      Motorcycles are sometimes difficult to see on the road, and drivers who are distracted for even a moment may cause accidents.
    • Speeding
      Because of their lighter weight, motorcycles can stop much faster than passenger vehicles. If a motorcyclist has to stop suddenly, a speeding vehicle may not have enough time to stop and could strike the motorcycle.
    • Left-Hand Turns
      Collisions between motorcyclists and drivers making left-hand turns account for nearly half of all motorcycle accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
  1. After the motorcycle accident, there are a few steps you can take to protect your health and rights to compensation:
    • Call police and get medical attention.
    • Get contact information from the driver and any witnesses.
    • Avoid talking about the accident with friends or posting about it on social media.
    • Call an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer.

    At Jason Stone Injury Lawyers, we’ve handled many motorcycle accident claims, and we know what it takes to win. Just dial (800) 577-5188 or fill out our free online form, and let us put our experience to work for you.

Since 1967, Massachusetts state law requires that all motorcyclists—regardless of age, experience, or insurance coverage—wear helmets while on the road. Jason Stone Injury Lawyers encourages you to always wear your helmet, even for short rides. It’s not just the law, it can also save your life.

  1. After your motorcycle accident, you may be eligible to receive compensation for:
    • Medical bills
    • Lost wages
    • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
    • Property damages

The overall amount of damages you can receive depends on the severity of your injuries, your total medical costs, and how long you suffered from the effects of the crash. At Jason Stone Injury Lawyers, we’ll fight the insurance companies to get you the maximum amount of money for your motorcycle accident claim.

A lawyer from Jason Stone Injury Lawyers can collect and organize evidence to help prove the other driver was at fault for causing the accident. Then, we can build a strong claim for you by calculating your damages—like medical bills and lost wages—and negotiating with the insurance company to get you the money you deserve. More importantly, we can handle all of the legal and administrative aspects of the case so you can focus on getting better while we focus on getting you paid. We want to be compensated for everything you have to go through to get yourself back to the way you felt five minutes before the crash. Don’t wait to get the experienced help you deserve.
