Motorcycle riders are particularly vulnerable to injury or death because they are essentially unprotected, even when wearing helmets and other gear. An accident that would cause relatively little damage to a car, such as a sideswipe, can leave a motorcycle rider seriously injured. It is important to consult a knowledgeable personal injury attorney after a motorcycle crash to determine whether it is possible to obtain damages.
At the Cambridge law firm of Clark, Hunt, Ahern & Embry, our attorneys undertake claims and lawsuits in pursuit of compensation for clients injured in motorcycle accidents. We build on our extensive trial experience, knowledge of tort law and willingness to be aggressive in pursuit of our clients' goals. We consult extensively with a variety of experts and specialist in fields such as medicine, highway design, accident reconstruction, vocational rehabilitation and more to build strong cases for our clients.Examples of Motorcycle Accident Cases
Motorcycle accidents occur for a variety of reasons, many of which involve car and truck drivers not seeing the motorcycle. This type of negligence can result in injuries such as:
- Road rash caused by riders sliding along the roadway after being hit or being forced to lay their bikes down in order to avoid collisions
- Broken limbs and amputations after a collision threw the rider off the motorcycle
- Head and brain injuries caused when one vehicle forced the motorcycle into the path of another vehicle
Accidents such as these can be fatal. In such cases, our attorneys prepare wrongful death claims and lawsuits for family members of the deceased, helping them recover much needed resources after a tragic loss.
