Motorcycle Accidents

MA & CT Motorcycle Accident Attorney Joseph McManusDespite proper safety precautions and skilled riding, motorcycle accidents can and do happen. When motorcycle accidents happen, riders are particularly vulnerable to serious and catastrophic injury. The vast majority of motorcycle accidents are caused by the negligence and carelessness of the other driver. Frequently the at-fault driver will attempt to blame the injured biker. To make matters worse, insurance companies and defense lawyers love to blame the injured biker as well. They employ this tactic because it is effective. We have all seen reckless riders weaving in and out of traffic on the highway. These are the images that stick in people’s minds. People remember the one or two reckless motorcyclists that they have seen in their lives. They forget about the thousands of safe and responsible riders with whom they share the road everyday. This is a matter of psychology. We are hardwired to retain certain memories and to forget others. Defense lawyers know this. Insurance companies know this. They can and will use this fact against injured motorcyclists in order to save money. As a rider, I find this tactic to be disgusting and despicable.

I have dedicated a great part of my career to ensuring that the insurance companies and lawyers they hire do not profit from this tactic. Under our law, injured motorcyclists are entitled to full and fair compensation for all of their injuries, damages and losses caused by the negligence of another driver. As a trial lawyer, I fight to get every injured biker each and every penny he or she deserves. As a biker, I hold this responsibility sacred. I have represented motorcyclists who have suffered catastrophic injuries from traumatic brain injury to loss of limbs to paralysis to death.
