Negligent Drivers & Motorcycle Accidents

Negligent Drivers Motorcycle Accidents

It is an unfortunate truth that motorcyclists, despite traveling on the same roads and sharing the same rights and responsibilities as car and truck drivers, suffer a disproportionately high number of accidents in Massachusetts and throughout the United States. Often, these accidents cause particularly serious injuries and fatalities. In fact, motorcycle accidents resulting in wrongful deaths are more than 10 percent of all fatalities on the road, despite being far outnumbered by cars and trucks. Further, victims of a motorcycle accident and their family often endure very lengthy, costly, and difficult hospital stays and rehabilitation.

The experienced Boston motorcycle accident lawyers at Bellotti Law Group, P.C. know that when motorcyclists hit the road, they are relying on other operators to abide by traffic rules and regulations and to operate safely, sharing the road. When the negligence of another driver has caused serious injuries or wrongful death of your or a loved one, there is legal recourse. We also know that many jurors hold a bias against motorcycle drivers and have likely not been on a motorcycle in the past. We account for this unfortunately expected bias and present the best, most educated, case possible on you behalf.

Most Motorcycle Accidents Involve More Than One Vehicle

While there are many single motorcycle crashes, over 50 percent of motorcycle accidents involve at least one other vehicle. More specifically, most motorcycle accidents involve a passenger vehicle. Sadly, these two+ vehicle accidents make up a staggering 85 percent of all motorcycle accident deaths. An even more alarming statistic, when a motorcyclist is struck by another car or truck, in 98 percent of all cases, the motorcyclists suffers fatal injuries instead of the other driver in fatal cases.

Other Drivers' Negligence Is Most Often The Cause Of Motorcycle Accidents

Frequently, another driver's negligence is the root cause of a motorcycle accident, causing serious injuries and fatalities. Quite simply, other drivers do not practice safe driving techniques, keeping a watchful eye out for motorcyclists and properly sharing the road. Many times, other drivers will suddenly cross into the path of a motorcycle, turn without ensuring a clear path, not leave enough braking space, and otherwise violate their right of way and strike the motorcycle. These can all lead to catastrophic injuries, such as broken bones, severe scaring and facial disfigurement, paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, burns, severe lacerations, and death.
