Don’t trust the big insurance companies to have your best interests at heart. They don’t. They care about their profits. If they can get away with denying or underpaying your claim, they will do it.

Why You Need Our Top-Rated Massachusetts Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

With so much at stake, you need a Massachusetts motorcycle accident lawyer at Bottaro Law to protect your rights and help you get maximum compensation. If you are looking for the best personal injury representation after a motorcycle accident in Massachusetts, we believe you are at the right law firm. You can read about the many awards and case victories Mike has attained over the years.

When you hire our firm, you can count on us to build a solid case by:

  • Proving the other driver caused the crash – While insurance policies for cars in Massachusetts must include no-fault personal injury protection (PIP) benefits, motorcycle insurance policies do not have this coverage. An injured motorcyclist can, however, turn to the at-fault driver’s insurance policy for compensation. Our attorneys can investigate the accident and gather evidence to show the other driver’s actions caused the crash, building a solid case for your insurance claim.
  • Filing your motorcycle accident claim – You may face mounting medical bills and lost wages if you were injured in a motorcycle crash. You need compensation for your injuries quickly. Our motorcycle accident lawyers can prepare and promptly file an insurance claim on your behalf to help you pursue the financial recovery you deserve. 
  • Negotiating with the insurance companies – Insurance companies are for-profit businesses that aim to pay out as little as possible. Mike and his team have experience standing up to large insurers and aggressively negotiating with them to seek the maximum compensation.
  • Preparing your case for trial – Most motorcycle accident claims conclude with an insurance settlement, but sometimes insurance companies will not negotiate in good faith. If that happens, our motorcycle accident lawyers can file a lawsuit and represent you in court to get the best possible outcome in your case.

Common Injuries Motorcycle Riders Suffer in Massachusetts

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Massachusetts

Motorcycle accidents are often the result of an error by the driver of a car who hit the motorcyclist. Some examples of common causes of motorcycle accidents include: 

  • Driving under the influence – Drivers who are intoxicated due to alcohol or drugs are more likely to cause accidents because they have dulled reflexes and impaired judgment. They may fail to notice a motorcycle on the road or be unable to react quickly enough to avoid a collision. 
  • Speeding – Drivers who speed or go too fast for the conditions are at risk of causing motorcycle accidents because they may not have sufficient time and space to slow down or stop before colliding with a bike. 
  • Following too closely – Drivers need to give motorcycles extra space on the road because motorcycles come to a stop more quickly than bigger vehicles. Following a motorcycle too closely or tailgating dramatically increases the risk of a crash.
  • Failing to check blind spots – Because motorcycles can be harder to spot on the road than larger vehicles, drivers must check their blind spots before changing lanes or merging to ensure no motorcycles are nearby. 
  • Inclement weather – Drivers must adjust their behavior on the road to account for weather conditions such as high winds, heavy rain, or snow. Failure to do so can make it harder for a driver to stop or slow down in time to avoid a collision.
  • Poor road conditions – Hazards such as potholes, gravel, or debris in the road can cause a rider to lose control of their motorcycle.
