Massachusetts man suffers serious injuries after motorcycle accident

When a vehicle crashes into a motorcycle in Massachusetts, it often means catastrophic injuries for the biker. This includes potentially grave injuries such as brain damage, damage to the spinal cord and injuries to the head and body. Serious injuries, which are frequently life-changing, can occur in a motorcycle accident, due to the lack of protection that standard automobiles possess. This may well have been the case regarding a recent crash in Danvers.

About 8 PM on Mar. 19, a 38-year-old Danvers woman driving a Subaru collided with a motorcycle on Route 128. The accident seriously injured the 48-year-old cyclist and also hurt his 15-year-old female passenger. The biker and the girl, who was thought to have escaped with minor injuries, were both taken to Burlington's Lahey Clinic, where further word on their condition was not immediately disclosed.

While the motorcycle accident remains under investigation, it is not yet clear precisely what caused this crash. Nevertheless, it appears the cyclist has a long road to recovery in front of him. All parties involved in the collision will likely be interested in the findings of the official accident report so they may assess their rights and responsibilities.

In instances where someone is seriously injured due to the negligence of another, Massachusetts courts are open to hear personal injury claims for damages occasioned by the accident. A successful claim often includes financial remuneration for out of pocket expenses and other damages related to the accident, including any consequential pain and suffering.
