Motorcycle Accident Attorneys in New Bedford

Representing Motorcycle Injury Victims in Massachusetts

A motorcycle is inherently more vulnerable than an automobile, lacking the protection of an enclosed space or an airbag. Motorcycle accidents frequently result in severe injuries and, as such, are often life-altering events that ripple throughout the lives of injured victims and their families for a long time to come. It is crucial for drivers to maintain awareness of their surroundings and to respect the space of motorcyclists on the road to avoid these terrible accidents.

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident due to the negligent or careless actions of another party, the motorcycle accident attorneys at Morgan & Murphy are prepared to represent your case and obtain the compensation you need during this difficult time.

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists are often very aware of their safety given their level of vulnerability.

However, no matter how safe riders are, there are many other factors that often lead to accidents, including:

  • Inattentive or distracted drivers - Motorcycles are obviously smaller compared to cars and trucks, which make it difficult for them to maintain visibility
  • Road hazards - Construction sites and debris falling from vehicles can strike bikers on the road, causing a crash and/or injuries
  • Poor communication - It is not uncommon for riders to travel in groups, but when these groups do not engage in good communication, riders can collide or move into each other’s lanes
  • Failure to Yield - Drivers may proceed through intersections or turns when motorcycles have the right of way, causing crashes
  • Changing Lanes - In Massachusetts, "lane splitting" or passing vehicles in the area between lanes, is illegal, which can put bikers at greater risk of accidents when changing lanes suddenly

Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

Bikers involved in a motorcycle crash face some of the worst injuries on the road, such as:

In many cases, it can take months or years before an injured motorcyclist is able to fully recover, though there is often a possibility that such a recovery is not possible if the injuries are too severe. That is why you need an experienced attorney on your side. We will assist you in navigating the issues involving medical bills, lost income, physical rehabilitation, and even property damage.
