FAQ

What Should You Do
After A Motorcycle Accident?

jsi-motorcycle-accident
  • DO YOU NEED A LAWYER AFTER YOUR MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT?

    Depending on the crash, it can take extensive effort to figure out what really happened. In 2019, for instance, a motorcycling accident that took place on I-95 had to be investigated at length by the police.

    The compassionate team of attorneys at Jason Stone Injury Lawyers in Massachusetts also know how to determine the cause of a crash. The difference is that we care about the impact that the accident has had on you and your family. Immediately after taking on your case, our legal team will begin working day and night to gather evidence that will ensure the compensation you need to recover.

    Our investigators and experts will gather evidence including:

    • Copies of the police reports
    • Statements from witnesses of the accident
    • Copies of medical records and bills
    • Photographs of the scene of the accident and damage to vehicles
    • Accident reconstruction
    • Video footage from any cameras near where the accident occurred

    We will also handle all negotiations with the liable party’s lawyers and insurance company. Remember, you are never obligated to speak with the other party’s insurance company, which is definitely not looking out for your best interests.

    The lower the settlement that the company can get you to accept, the more money it keeps in its pocket. Insurance companies have a variety of tactics they will use to get you to accept a low payout, including trying to blame you (of course, the motorcyclist) for the accident.

    Don’t accept a settlement from an insurance company before first consulting your Massachusetts personal injury attorneys at Jason Stone Injury Lawyers.

    Not everyone will listen to you, but Jason Stone Injury Lawyers in Massachusetts recognizes when you have been injured through no fault of your own. We aim for you to be justly compensated so you can have a calm heart again.

  • WHAT COMPENSATION CAN I RECEIVE AFTER MY ACCIDENT?

    Maybe you’re less concerned with your financial status and more occupied with regaining your physical health, or vice-versa. Each motorcycle accident victim has his or her own unique physical, emotional, and financial challenges. Thus, we take time to analyze each case individually on your own terms.

    Compensation depends on a number of different factors surrounding your case. Your Massachusetts personal injury lawyer will take into account:

    • Your current medical expenses
    • Necessary future medical costs including surgery, rehabilitation, and therapy
    • Your property damage (including damage to your motorcycle)
    • Lost wages and loss of future earnings
    • Pain and suffering
  • WHAT ARE MOST MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS CAUSED BY?

    As a motorcycle rider, this is an important question to you. After all, motorcycle riders are more exposed to the elements and potential impacts than passengers in cars are. So you have an increased risk of being seriously hurt in an accident.

    You are in good company, as statistics show that the number of motorcycles on the road has been increasing in recent years. According to one source, the sales of all motorcycles (including scooters) increased by more than 14 percent in 2021.

    While it’s definitely fun to ride, a motorcyclist may only have seconds to react to avoid an accident. You can take a few precautions to keep yourself safe on the road: Wear your helmet, avoid lane-splitting, and be especially careful at intersections.

    Unfortunately, statistics repeatedly show that negligence on the part of other drivers is the cause of most motorcycle accidents. Driver negligence comes in various forms, and being informed of these practices may well save your life!

  • WHO IS AT FAULT IN MOST MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS?

    When an accident occurs involving just two cars, usually injuries to passengers result. However, when an accident involves a motorcycle, the rider is usually injured and the injuries can be catastrophic and life-changing due to the lack of impact protection that motorcycles offer.

    Most people feel that motorcycle riders are risk-takers by nature and therefore usually the at-fault party when accidents occur. However, statistics have repeatedly shown that this is not at all the case. Most motorcycle accidents are the result of negligence on the part of drivers of other motor vehicles.

    Far too often, automobile drivers fail to show the same respect for motorcycle riders as they do for occupants of other vehicles on the road. They seem to forget that motorcyclists, even though operating smaller vehicles, have the same rights as everyone else driving around.

    Some common forms of driver negligence that cause motorcycle accidents include:

    • Distracted driving
    • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
    • Driving while fatigued or drowsy
    • Speeding
    • Improper lane-changing
    • Failing to yield right-of-way
    • Following a motorcyclist too closely
    • Opening a car door in on-coming traffic while parked
    • Left-hand turns
  • WHAT IS THE MOST COMMON INJURY IN A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT?

    As a motorcycle rider, you know doubt enjoy the freedom of riding on the open road. The feeling of the sun beaming on you and the wind rushing past you cannot be experienced while riding in an enclosed vehicle.

    At the same time, you are probably aware of the increased potential risks that come with riding a motorcycle. Due to the lack of protection an exposed motorcycle rider has in comparison with passengers riding in a car, there is an increased risk of suffering injuries when the motorcyclist gets in an accident.

    In fact, statistically, motorcycle riders are injured 96 percent of the time in accidents with just 1 vehicle. This number is even higher for accidents involving multiple vehicles.

    Perhaps you have wondered what types of injuries are common for motorcycle riders. Specifically, what is the most common type of injury suffered in motorcycle accidents?

    Since a rider’s head is exposed, even though he or she may be wearing a helmet, head injuries are the most common injury in motorcycle accidents. Traumatic brain injuries include concussion and hemorrhage, which both require immediate medical attention as potentially life-threatening conditions.

  • HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO HIRE A MASSACHUSETTS MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEY?

    Our initial consultation with you is absolutely free. You won’t need to worry about the cost when we sit down with you and patiently listen to you explain the events before and after the collision.

    Furthermore, our Massachusetts motorcycle accident lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. Which means you will pay nothing out of pocket while we handle your case. We only get paid if and when you get paid—that’s one element of our Stone Cold Guarantee.

    The Massachusetts motorcycle accident attorneys at Jason Stone Injury Lawyers have decades of experience in helping motorcycle accident victims receive the financial compensation they deserve for injuries and related losses.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT

Motorcycle Accidents And Injuries

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcyclists are 28 times more likely, per mile traveled, to be involved in a fatal crash than those in regular passenger vehicles.

Motorcyclists are sometimes labeled as reckless drivers, driving too fast and speeding in and out of lanes. However, this is not true of all motorcyclists. In fact, the other driver can easily be the one responsible for the motorcyclist’s crash. Take, for example, the following list of common causes of motorcycle accidents: Only one may apply to the motorcyclist themselves.

injuries-img
MOTORCYCLE LANE SPLITTING

When a motorcycle drives between two lanes of traffic, the risk of an accident increases. This is due to the vehicle’s close proximity to the motorcycle and the fact that other drivers aren’t expecting the motorcycle to be there. Lane splitting is an illegal maneuver and has resulted in catastrophic crashes.

injuries-img
LEFT TURNS

Many collisions occur when the motorcycle or another driver on the roadway makes a left turn. Drivers may not see a motorcycle’s turn signal, or they accidentally turn into the motorcycle while performing a left turn.

injuries-img
DISTRACTED DRIVERS

Motorcyclists are more difficult to spot on the road than standard-size vehicles. A driver that is texting, eating, grooming, or doing anything else that takes his or her eyes off the road can easily miss a nearby motorcycle.

injuries-img
SPEEDING

Speeding reduces a driver’s time to see and react to other vehicles or hazards in the road. Both drivers of regular passenger vehicles and motorcyclists themselves may be guilty of speeding. The faster the speed, the greater the impact and the more severe the consequences.

injuries-img
UNSAFE LANE CHANGES

Drivers may collide with a motorcycle if they change lanes without checking their blind spot or fail to use their turn signals.

injuries-img
ROAD HAZARDS

Due to a motorcycle’s small size and unstable nature, it is a challenge for motorcyclists to navigate potholes, debris, large cracks, or other obstacles in the road. Hitting unexpected objects in the roadway can cause motorcyclists to lose control and crash.

injuries-img
DOORING

A car door, for example, opened in the path of an oncoming motorcycle can seriously injure the rider. This sort of accident is called “dooring.” State law holds the car driver responsible in this case.

injuries-img
DEFECTIVE MOTORCYCLE PARTS

Some accidents are caused by poorly designed or defective motorcycle parts. When a 
part malfunctions, the driver could easily lose control of 
the vehicle and crash.

Jason Stone Injury Lawyers wishes to commend every motorcyclist who wears a helmet and protective material.

The chances of protecting your brain in a motorcycle crash increase when you wear a helmet, while it’s also recommended to have your arms and legs fully covered with heavy material such as leather or denim. Meanwhile, boots or shoes that cover your ankles and gloves to protect your hands are also a good idea.

However, the facts remain grim. Even when the rider is wearing protective gear, a motorcycle accident can result in serious injuries or death.

The experienced Massachusetts motorcycle accident attorneys at Jason Stone Injury Lawyers want to help you get your life back to where it was. The first step is discussing your rights with us. We will explain these to you and how we can get you the financial compensation you deserve.

Some common injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash include:

  • Concussion
  • Brain damage
  • Paralysis
  • Loss of limbs
  • Broken bones
  • Facial disfigurement
  • Severe burns
  • Back injuries

These traumatic injuries likely will require extensive medical attention. A victim may need casts, surgeries, and the like to recover. Medications, physical therapy, and even long-term medical care may be necessary.

Thus, when a motorcycle is involved in a collision, there are usually serious financial repercussions for victims and their families. The costs of the medical treatment, combined with the loss of income from missing work during recovery, can be devastating.
