Motorcycles are unique vehicles. Their designs offer little to no protection for riders in accidents. The lightweight nature of most motorcycles also makes them more prone to accidents. A patch of loose gravel might not pose a hazard to a motor vehicle, for example, but could cause a motorcyclist to crash and suffer serious injuries. A motorcycle could crash in many different ways in the City of Milton.
At Sweeney Merrigan Law, LLP, our Milton motorcycle accident attorneys can help riders with all types of personal injuries. Those most commonly experienced in motorcycle wrecks include road rash, lacerations, scarring, disfigurement, broken bones, muscle and soft-tissue injuries, head and face injuries, traumatic brain injuries, organ damage, and spine injuries. We also represent clients during wrongful death motorcycle accident claims in Milton, MA.
One of the first tasks set to you after a motorcycle accident is to identify the cause of your crash. Although Massachusetts is a no-fault state, it can still be important to determine who caused your crash. Most motorcycle collisions cause serious enough injuries to qualify the victim to bring a civil lawsuit outside of the no-fault insurance system. Before you may bring a suit, however, you or your Milton motorcycle accident lawyer must identify the cause of your accident.
If another driver collided with your motorcycle in Milton, he or she may owe you compensation for your damages out of an auto insurance policy. Even if your accident did not involve another vehicle, contact us to discuss a possible lawsuit. You may still have a case against a product manufacturer, property owner and/or the government depending on the cause of your crash. Our motorcycle accident attorneys in Milton can revisit the crash scene, collect evidence and help you determine the cause of your motorcycle crash.
The right motorcycle accident lawyer could help you obtain fair and full financial compensation for your various losses after a serious collision. You may be eligible to receive an award that covers your past and future medical bills, pain and suffering, disability-related losses, lost wages, loss of consortium, a loved one’s wrongful death, and more. Sweeney Merrigan Law, LLP knows how to maximize results on behalf of clients using tried and true legal methods.
