Road rash, multiple fractures and other injuries are painful and can take time and extensive medical care to heal. Closed head injuries or traumatic brain injuries can permanently change the lives of bikers as well as the lives of their families as long-term medical treatment, ongoing rehabilitation and other lifelong needs are contemplated. Our personal injury lawyers have the compassion and concern to help you confront these complex medical issues and deal with the insurance claims to recover the full compensation you need.

How did the motorcycle accident happen?

After seeing that you get the medical care you need, our next priority will be to establish liability for the crash. How did the accident happen? In one motorcycle accident after another, we find that the driver of a car or truck was simply not alert. Other drivers may turn in front of a motorcycle or they may not give the motorcycle the space needed for safe driving.

Motorcycles have a right to be on the road.

Most motorcyclists are safe, defensive drivers, but even the greatest care cannot always overcome unsafe car drivers. A defect in the road, gravel on the shoulder or some other hazard may combine with a careless action by a car or truck driver to cause a dangerous condition.

We will expect a fair settlement or take the case to trial.

When we discuss your case with the insurance company, we will make sure they know the facts of the bike wreck and the extent of your injuries. If the case goes to trial, our experienced personal injury trial lawyers will make sure the jury understands your right to be on the road and how the negligence of others caused your life to change.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, or if a loved one has died in a fatal bike crash, our Haverhill personal injury attorneys are ready to talk to you and help you understand the next steps.
