Seeking Compensation After a Motorcycle Accident 

Motorcycle rides can turn tragic in an instant when negligent drivers share the road. Motorcycle enthusiasts may face unique emotional and physical challenges in the aftermath of a needless accident. Keller Postman is dedicated to helping riders in Massachusetts get the care, support, and compensation they need after these traumatic events.

The Devastating Impact of Motorcycle Accidents 

Riding a motorcycle is a liberating pastime, but it comes with significant risks. Statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration highlight the sobering reality: 82,000 motorcycle accidents and 5,932 fatalities were reported in 2021 alone. Disturbingly, 42% of these accidents were caused by another vehicle making an improper left turn or maneuvering carelessly.

Data from the CDC further highlights the risks posed to motorcyclists:

  • Over 25,000 motorcyclists tragically lost their lives between 2017 and 2021.
  • During this period, 25- to 34-year-olds had the highest risk of fatality and injury.
  • Most non-fatal injuries impacted the back, neck, legs, and feet.

Common Causes and Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents 

Many factors could set the stage for a bad motorcycle accident, including:

  • Improper left turns by other drivers.
  • Sudden and reckless lane changes.
  • Rear-end collisions.
  • Reduced visibility of motorcycles.
  • Adverse weather conditions

Typical accident-related injuries can range from minor to severe, such as:

  • Road rash: Abrasions and scrapes from sliding on the road.
  • Lacerations: Deep cuts caused by contact with objects or surfaces during the accident.
  • Whiplash: Neck injuries due to sudden and forceful movements.
  • Broken ribs or limbs: Fractures from the impact of the accident.
  • Internal bleeding: Serious injuries that may not be immediately apparent.
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI): Head injuries with varying degrees of severity.
  • Spinal injuries: Injuries to the spinal cord with potential long-term consequences.
  • Lower-extremity injuries: Damage to the legs and feet.

The High Costs of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) in Massachusetts

Massachusetts law firmly mandates that all motorcycle riders and passengers must wear helmets. Wrecks can put riders at risk for severe head and brain injuries. According to the CDC, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) from motorcycle accidents can cause varying degrees of permanent disabilities, from mild impairments to a debilitating coma. And these injuries can come with significant costs. Long-term caretaking for patients with severe TBIs can add up to $4 million on average.

How much is my personal injury case worth?

The value of your case depends on several factors. How bad are your injuries? How much money have you spent on medical bills? And did you lose any wages because of the injury? Lastly, who is responsible for what happened? To better understand how much your case might be worth, you should talk to a lawyer. An attorney can look at all the details of your situation and give you an estimate. And don’t worry, the initial assessment won’t cost you anything.

Please collect any available medical records, police reports, and images of injuries or property damage and share them with us. Do not delete or destroy anything. Keep all your digital photos, emails, text messages, or social media messages, as it could impact your claim.

Yes, there are, and they are called Statutes of limitations or SOLs. SOLs set a time limit to file your claim. In Massachusetts, it is usually three years. If a deadline is approaching, respond promptly to our urgent requests to protect your claim.

We recommend keeping your social media posts private and discussing the case only with us and your spouse, if you’re married. Communications between you and Keller Postman LLC are protected by attorney-client privilege. That means our conversations are private and protected. But be careful when talking to other people about your case. Those conversations might be questioned, so be cautious.

We charge no fees unless we win your case, so you will owe nothing until we get you compensation. After that, we charge the standard 33% “contingency fee.” This means that if—and only if—we successfully resolve your case, 33% of your recovery will go to our firm for our services. If we cannot get you a favorable outcome, you will not have to pay us anything.

Keller Postman supports clients nationwide with attorneys in a dozen states, including in Boston, Massachusetts. If you have been injured and need a personal injury attorney in Massachusetts, reach out to Keller Postman today.
