Motorcycle enthusiasts enjoy the freedom of riding in the open air and the maneuverability of a fine-tuned machine. One careless action by another motorist, however, can put your life in jeopardy. Since our founding in 1946, the motorcycle accident lawyers at Feinberg & Alban, P.C. have dedicated their skills, resources and knowledge to helping victims of injuries in Boston and throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. We maximize your compensation so you can get the care you need after a motorcycle accident.
Riding a motorcycle may be enjoyable, but it can also be dangerous without the right precautions — and without knowing what the other drivers on the road may do. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), part of the U.S. Department of Transportation, recently reported that 4,612 motorcyclists died in accidents in 2011. While this seems small with respect to the 8,437,502 they report as being registered in the United States, the NHTSA also reported 81,000 crashes involving motorcycles in 2011. The NHTSA also reported some other eye-opening figures:
The Centers for Disease Control also reported on motorcycle accidents from 2001 through 2008:
Massachusetts law mandates that all operators and passengers wear safety helmets. The statute is intended to help motorcyclists avoid devastating head and brain injuries — which is one of the most common motorcycle accident-related injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) may result in permanent disabilities, ranging from mild cognitive and sensory impairment to coma. The Family Caregiver Alliance — a nonprofit organization that addresses long-term care issues — estimates that the lifetime costs for a person who suffers severe TBI can reach $4 million.
