Massachusetts motorcycle accidents: Head-on crash injures biker

News reports often contain stories of motorcycle accidents and the personal injuries suffered as a result by the operator. Sometimes these are caused by the driver of an automobile failing to see the motorcycle and its rider before it's too late. Those personal injuries from motorcycle accidents can range anywhere from scrapes and bruises to life-threatening. One recent story involves a Massachusetts man who was hospitalized after colliding head-on with an SUV.

According to police, the motorcycle was traveling southbound and came to a near stop behind two other vehicles. The operator of the motorcycle changed lanes and continued heading in the same direction. At the same time, A driver leading a line of traffic motioned the driver of another vehicle to exit a parking lot, at which time the driver crossed both lanes and a head-on collision happened between the vehicle and motorcycle.

The occupants of the SUV were reportedly not injured. However, the motorcycle rider was transported with unknown injuries to a nearby medical facility. There were no updates as to his condition at the time the report was released.

Any Massachusetts resident who believes they have been the victim of the negligence of another while riding a motorcycle may want to look into their rights under the appropriate state laws. Motorcycle accidents can be an emotionally, physically, and financially draining time. By having an understanding of one's rights, they could potentially receive monetary compensation to help cover accident related expenses such as medical bills, time off of work, and any long term medical care they may need.
