Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Somerville

Under Massachusetts no-fault laws, you may not need to know who caused your motorcycle accident to recover compensation for your losses. You could seek benefits from your personal injury protection vehicle insurance without proving fault. If, however, you have serious injuries, you or your lawyer will need to identify the cause of your crash and the defendant.

  • Driver negligence. Driver negligence, recklessness and broken roadway rules are common causes of Somerville motorcycle wrecks. Drunk, distracted, reckless, speeding, drowsy and careless drivers may crash into motorcyclists due to failing to maintain a proper lookout and making other dangerous mistakes.
  • Dangerous roads. Some motorcycle accidents stem not from driver error but defective roadways. Road hazards such as uneven shoulders, potholes and loose gravel can prove extremely dangerous for motorcyclists. These crashes may be the responsibility of the City of Somerville for negligent road maintenance.
  • Defective motorcycles. In other cases, an injured motorcyclist may have grounds to bring a product liability claim against the manufacturer of the motorcycle for a defective part or vehicle. Strict product liability laws mean plaintiffs often do not have to prove negligence to recover during these lawsuits.

Motorcyclists can experience injuries such as bone breaks, road rash, traumatic brain injuries, facial injuries, back and spine injuries, muscle tears, and internal organ damage in vehicle accidents. At Sweeney Merrigan Law, LLP, we work hard on behalf of injured motorcyclists in Somerville. We can help you with all the steps and aspects of your claim to maximize the odds of receiving fair compensation for your serious losses. We have experience handling personal injury, product liability and wrongful death cases.

What Damages Are Recoverable?

Working with a personal injury lawyer after a motorcycle crash could make it easier to recover the award you need to move forward. Your lawyer may be able to obtain a settlement or jury verdict ordering an at-fault party to pay for your past and future medical expenses, property repairs, lost wages, physical pain, anguish, distress, out-of-pocket costs and more.
