Hazardous Road Conditions Motorcycle Accidents

Hazardous Road Conditions

There are undoubtedly a number of intrinsic dangers present when riding a motorcycle, namely, other careless and negligent motorists. Yet, while many times other drivers are the root cause of motorcycle accidents that result in serious injuries or wrongful deaths, there are other risks motorcyclists frequently encounter. One particularly common cause of motorcycle accidents, other than negligent drivers, is hazardous road conditions. There are numerous hazards on the roads, including dangerous or unexpected curves, wet leaves, poorly designed ways, loose debris, potholes, improper or insufficient signage, fallen tree limbs, tire shreds, and other obstructions. In short, there are countless instances where roads that should be safe to ride on are suddenly perilous to motorcyclists.

The State Or Municipality May Be At Fault

Roads must be properly maintained and marked by the state and cities/towns in Massachusetts. If roads are left to degenerate into a poor condition, potholes are left untreated, dangerous curves are not clearly or correctly marked with paint and/or signs, the road is filled with uncollected debris or tree limbs, etc. the state or municipality may be considered negligent and liable for your motorcycle accident. It is no secret that motorcyclists risk severe injuries such as broken bones, disfigurement, traumatic brain injuries, and death, where the cost of medical care and rehabilitation can be staggering, lost wages can pile up, and the pain and suffering is unimaginable. Victims and their families may be able to sue the state or municipality if their improper maintenance and recover their damages.

Other Drivers And Companies May Be At Fault

If there is a dangerous obstruction or debris that comes loose or falls off another car or truck and strikes your motorcycle or causes you to lose control, that driver and/or a parent company should be held liable for your damages. In particular, if a truck or car is carrying an improperly secured load that causes your motorcycle accident, the driver, and perhaps a parent company through a respondeat superior claim, should be held at-fault.

My experience with Attorney Karen Nadeau (a fantastic attorney) and her colleagues at the Bellotti Law Group was exceptional and greatly exceeded my expectations. After I was injured on an amusement park ride while on vacation with my husband and children, I felt overwhelmed… In the end, the final settlement was much larger than I anticipated. The peace of mind and security that Karen provided meant a lot to me. I highly recommend her firm for their professional, compassionate, and proactive standards. Mary Mack
We went to Bellotti Law for help with a car injury to a pedestrian in a hospital parking garage. Peter and Karen are very low-key and calm, but know well how the system works and got us an excellent setlement through persistence, and helping us to track the effects of the injury and its future potential effects.
