Riding a motorcycle is a unique experience. Not necessarily because it is more environmentally friendly, economical, or maneuverable, but because it offers camaraderie. Being a motorcyclist is about being part of a community. Unfortunately, not everyone else knows how to share the road with that community.
As a motorcycle enthusiast and avid rider, Tom Kiley, founder of the Kiley Law Group, knows firsthand the challenges facing Massachusetts motorcyclists every day. As a biker, you have the same right to travel the road as other vehicles, but the drivers of these other vehicles don’t necessarily know how to share the road with you. The negligence of other motorists is often the cause of motorcycle injury accidents. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident that you believe was caused by the reckless or negligent actions of another driver, you may be able to take legal action to recover compensation. Determining fault can be difficult, but speaking with an experienced attorney can help you determine your best options.
How We Can Help You
At the Kiley Law Group, we have successfully handled various motorcycle accident cases, lending us the experience, knowledge, and resources to investigate any accident and work toward the best possible outcome. We will gather all appropriate evidence, such as witness statements, the police report, and medical records, in order to present a strong case for compensation.
Motorcycle accident injuries are often catastrophic and may require months or even years of treatment and rehabilitative care. Injuries may even result in disability. Some common motorcycle injuries include traumatic brain injury, broken bones, and spinal cord injury. It is our job to hold the at-fault party responsible for the financial, physical, and emotional hardships motorcycle victims must face as a result of their negligence.
Damages We May Recover
If negligence was the cause of your motorcycle accident, you are entitled to pursue compensation from the at-fault party, whether it was a semi-truck driver who fell asleep at the wheel or a passenger car driver who changed lanes without checking to see if anyone was occupying it. A successful motorcycle accident claim may recover damages for pain and suffering, medical bills, future medical care, loss of wages, and emotional distress. In the event of a tragic wrongful death accident, a successful wrongful death claim can help your family obtain financial stability while it copes with the loss of a loved one.
Making a Well-Informed Decision
The aftermath of a motorcycle crash, especially one where you lost a loved one, can be confusing and overwhelming.
