Uninsured Drivers & Motorcycle Accidents
The average cost of medical treatment for motorcycle accident related injuries is a staggering $33,000. Unfortunately, many times, these costs can be much higher and can even reach hundreds of thousands of dollars. Additionally, this does not take into account time missed from work, rehabilitation, and compensation for pain and suffering.
All vehicles on Massachusetts roads are required by law to carry minimum insurance of $20,000 per person and $40,000 per accident. This is mandatory and there is no way around it. Most drivers adhere to this legal requirement and carry insurance. Sadly, some do not. Accident victims and their families face enough difficult challenges without the additional burdens of an uninsured at-fault driver. If you or a loved one has been injured by an uninsured driver, or a driver with inadequate insurance, you can be left holding the bills. Do not panic, however, as there are steps that can be taken.
If you or a loved one has sustained injuries or was wrongfully killed after a motorcycle accident caused by a negligent uninsured driver, prompt action is imperative.

The Insurance Research Council reports that an alarming one-in-ten drivers in Massachusetts are operating their cars and truck without insurance. This number may be closer to 1-in-7 as the economy gets more challenging and drivers are negligently and criminally forgoing mandatory insurance. Basically, your risk of being involved in an accident with an uninsured motorist is higher than you think!Our Lawyers Investigate Every Option to Get Your Fair Compensation
If you have been injured after a motorcycle accident with an uninsured motorist, you may first be able to establish a claim against the personal assets of the at-fault driver. Many times, however, if a driver cannot afford insurance, he likely does not have any other assets. Thus, our motorcycle accident attorneys will also likely pursue an insurance claim against any insurance available on other vehicles in the liable motorist's household. Another viable option is filing a claim against your own insurance company for uninsured coverage under your policy. In any event, we will examine each and every possibility to get you the compensation you deserve.We Know Insurance Companies

Our lawyers have many years of experience negotiating valuable settlements with difficult insurance agents and policies. We will get you the best compensation package available and will fight for your every right.
