Holding Careless Drivers Accountable In Motorcycle Accidents
Riding a motorcycle through the scenic country in northern Massachusetts can make for the perfect day. That perfect day can be ruined in an instant, however, by a negligent driver turning into you, colliding with you or running you off the road. Motorcycle accidents are often serious or even life-threatening. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries due to another driver’s negligence, you need a lawyer who knows how to handle serious accidents and injuries.
At DiFruscia Law Offices, our attorneys handle motorcycle accidents and other serious crashes in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire. We have been representing clients for over 50 years, and we understand the difficulties our injured clients face. We are here to help you through those difficulties by fighting for the compensation you need to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
Common Causes Of Motorcycle Crashes
If you have been riding for a while now, you should be familiar with many of the dangers cars pose to motorcycles on the road. You may already take safety precautions to avoid accidents and follow every traffic law, but even the best rider can become a victim to a bad driver. Some common causes of motorcycle crashes that we see include:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Dooring from parked cars
- Failure to yield
- Broadside collisions
- Intersection collisions
These are just a few examples of the many ways drivers injure motorcyclists through their negligence.
Because a rider’s body is exposed on a motorcycle, injuries tend to be catastrophic or even fatal. Your first priority must be your health and safety after an accident. Leave the legal dispute to us while you focus on your recovery. If you lost a loved one in a motorcycle crash, we are here to discuss the possibility of a wrongful death claim.
Why Do You Need An Attorney For Your Injury Claim?
When you are injured in an auto accident of any kind, you must file a claim with your insurance provider. If a negligent driver causes the accident, you will file the claim against that driver’s insurance carrier. Insurance companies have one goal, which is to pay as little as possible for your accident claim. They may try to blame you for the accident, downplay your injuries, or give you a lowball offer right away in the hopes that you will simply accept it and move on. Additionally, if you were violating any state motorcycle laws, they may argue that such violations contributed to the accident or your injuries to avoid paying out compensation.
When you hire an experienced injury firm like DiFruscia Law Offices, you signal to the insurance company that you are serious about your accident claim and mean to fight for the maximum compensation you deserve. As experienced trial attorneys, we are not afraid to take your case to court, forcing the insurance companies to pay considerably more in legal fees alone. They know we will not advise you to settle for less than your case is worth, which puts you in an automatic position of power at the negotiating table.
At our firm, we only charge clients a fee if we recover monetary damages for them. We base our fee on a percentage of the recovery.
