Riding a motorcycle is an enjoyable hobby for many people across the nation. However, a motorcycle accident can be a life-changing event not only for the victim, but for their family as well. A recent Massachusetts motorcycle accident involving three motorcycles has most likely shaken many family members and friends.
The accident happened as five motorcycles were riding together. A car traveling in the opposite direction hit the first motorcycle head-on, and two other motorcycles were also involved in the collision. The rider of the motorcycle that took the direct impact was taken to a local hospital with what were considered to be serious injuries. Another rider was also transported with what were reported as non-life-threatening injuries. No details were given regarding the other riders.
The two occupants in the car were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. While charges could still be pending, the families are no doubt going through a difficult time. Medical bills pile up quickly and it is sometimes in an accident victim's best interests to explore the option of a civil suit to recover some of the expenses incurred as a direct result of an accident.
Any Massachusetts rider that has been the victim of a motorcycle accident may find it beneficial to take a proactive approach when considering filing a civil suit. Having an understanding of the state laws can prove imperative when moving forward in a timely fashion. By taking quick action, a victim can hope to receive compensation to help with medical bills and lost wages as soon as possible. Securing a financial future can be critical during such a trying time.
