Boston Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Each year hundreds of motorcycle accidents are reported to the Division of traffic. Motorcycle accidents can have a far more tremendous impact than car accidents as motorcycle riders have a greater exposure to possible accidents as a result of the composition of motorcycles. However, there are clear laws and regulations defining the legal guidelines for drivers who come into contact with motorcycles on the road. Unfortunately, those guidelines are not always followed and significant injuries can occur as a result.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident, you need to call the legal offices of Murad Law for representation. Our experienced Motorcycle Accident Lawyer will conduct a thorough consultation to discuss the details of your case.
Motorcycle Accident Causes
No matter how safe and attentive you may be on your motorcycle, there are many factors that may still result in an accident. If you’re not at fault, you may be able to seek damages from the negligent party causing the crash.
Distracted or unobservant drivers are the number one cause of motorcycle accidents involving two vehicles. This number is further increased by other distractions such as texting while driving or driving under the influence. A motorcycle’s low profile makes them harder to see, especially since most drivers look for other cars – not motorcycles.
It’s the government’s job to keep roadways free of hazards and in good condition, but quite often things get overlooked. Potholes, loose gravel, slick pavement, worn asphalt and fallen street signs failing to warn motorcyclists of upcoming hazards are just some of the risks that may pose a threat.
Motorcycle accident victims may be forced to undergo intense treatment and medical care to save their lives and or quality of life. The financial obligations brought on by the need for medical care can have a tremendous impact on the victims family and ultimately cause financial hardship.

Motorcyclists are not covered under Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Insurance. However, that means they’re not bound by its restrictions. Motorcyclists don’t have to pass the “injury threshold” before pursuing compensations and injured riders aren’t held under a limit in sought after damages – including damages for pain and suffering.
Post accident, your motorcycle accident lawyer can contact the other party’s insurance agency and negotiate a settlement. Your attorney will then use information to leverage an adequate recovery for compensation. If the insurance company fails to meet an appropriate sum, you may then take legal action against the negligent party recover for any and all losses.
Most motorcycle accident cases are based on negligence. An investigation by your attorney will help uncover proof that a standard of care wasn’t exercised on behalf of the defendant, that this negligence caused the accident and that the accident in turn caused your injuries.
A motorcyclist can pursue a product liability claim against a manufacturer if the motorcycle or one of its components caused or contributed to the accident. What the manufacturer is held responsible for is dependent on the incident. In some cases, the manufacturer will be held liable regardless of whether or not negligence came into play on behalf of the rider. In other cases, your attorney must prove that the defect took place at the time of manufacturing. In this scenario, your motorcycle accident lawyer is required to prove three things:
- The defective part was “unreasonably dangerous”
- The motorcycle was operated as intended by the manufacturer
- The motorcycle’s performance had remained steady and not changed since purchase
