Stoughton Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Riding a motorcycle is a thrillingly dangerous adventure. It comes with many risks and rewards. Approximately ¾ of all motorcycle accidents are caused by an operator of another motor vehicle, often passenger cars.

That is not to say that motorcyclists can not cause their own accidents. Ways that motorcyclists have gotten injured on their bikes include excessive speeding, reckless driving, following another vehicle too closely, etc.

However, motorcyclists have to take a special course in order to operate a motorcycle. This course has an entire section dedicated to the safety of driving a motorcycle defensively. Most motorcyclists are hyper aware of the actions of the vehicles around them.

This can make for a good defense in a court of law: ¾ of all motorcycle accidents are not the rider’s fault, and the rider has been taught important defensive driving skills.

In Stoughton, most motorcycle accidents occur on the commonly small, three lane highway known as Route 24.

Motorcycle Insurance

As well as proper motorcycle insurance, it’s highly suggested for motorcyclists to have health insurance as they are more likely to be more severely injured during a crash than car operators.

Additionally, if a motorcyclist is found to be at fault for the accident, Massachusetts does not require your insurance company to cover your medical expenses under Personal Injury Protection.

Financial Aftermath

Because motorcyclists are more likely to be more severely injured during a crash, it is very likely that no matter what kind of accident, the rider will need to be sent to the hospital. Motorcyclists often endure long term injuries in crashes and suffer extensively during the healing process. Some possible injuries include:

  • Broken bones
  • Road rash
  • Brain injury
  • Facial injury
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Bruising and lacerations
  • Loss of limbs
  • Death

Extensive time in hospitals means extensive time away from work. You cannot pay expensive medical bills if you are not working, which is why compensation from your insurance company will be so important.

Negotiating Insurance Compensation

It is not secret that insurance companies do not always want what is best for you. It’s common for insurance companies to be brought to court over motor vehicle expense and medical bill compensation. It is also common for insurance companies to offer a settlement to the victim that will look tempting to take, but may not be all you are entitled to.

In order to have a successful case, it will be crucial to prove that the motorcycle accident was not caused by the rider. Taking pictures at the scene and calling 911 after an accident so they can investigate are strong influencers. The more evidence that can be obtained, the stronger the case.

Your insurance company may ask for a recorded statement of the accident. The insurance claim adjuster will call you within a few days of filing a claim. While they may seem friendly, some may seem cold, it is important to remember that they are not calling to be your friend.

Insurance claim adjusters reach out to hear your version of the story to determine the compensation you deserve. It is not mandatory to speak with them. In most cases, lawyers will advise you not to speak with them as it likely will only hurt your case. If you do not speak with them then they will only have the claim and the police report.

Michael was very professional and explained the process clearly and told us to be patient. After one year the charges got dismissed in the trial. Excellent knowledge of the court systems in the area of Boston. Would highly recommend him Ashwani

A careless decision on my part left me facing charges which would have severely hampered my ability to stay employed and support myself. But attorney DelSignore's skillful analysis and challenging of the evidence against me resulted in a conviction on a lesser charge. Now I'll be able to go on with my life, having learned a lesson I'll never forget. Thank you, Michael. Scott

Mike stuck with my case for 3.5 years and always kept me informed regarding the status. Ultimately, because of his due diligence, we ended up with an OUI not guilty verdict. This case could have gone many ways but his thorough review of the case and exceptional preparedness for trial ultimately drove a positive outcome. Thank you Mike! David

I cannot express the gratitude towards Michael for his amazing work and help. It was a very stressful event and they certainly put me at as much ease as possible. From start to finish it took 14 months and all the way through they were both very engaged with me. Today was worth the wait, Michael was great in court and I was rightfully found not guilty. I would recommend Michael over and over again. Claire
