Massachusetts man shares story of life-changing injuries

Now that summer is almost here, bikers will undoubtedly hit the open roads in high numbers. One Massachusetts man has recently talked about his desire to do the same. However, he will never be able to pursue that dream again. Two years ago, he suffered life-changing injuries after being a victim of a serious motorcycle accident.

The wreck occurred in late summer of 2012. The man, who is now 33, decided to go for a ride to attend a breakfast meeting with a friend on a Sunday morning. The rider is adamant that he obeyed all traffic laws and that the only thing he did differently was to deviate from his accustomed route.

A vehicle operated by a woman struck him without warning. After the man was thrown about 10 yards, he claims that the driver did not apply her brakes. Instead, she reportedly hit her accelerator and drove over his body. He suffered more than three dozen broken bones. His injuries were severe, and he was not expected to live.

Now, this Massachusetts man is adjusting to life as a paraplegic, although the life-changing injuries that he suffered have not paralyzed his concern for others. He recently stressed the need for proper safety procedures for fellow motorcyclists, as well as the other motorists who share the roads. It is not known if this man sought to file a personal injury civil lawsuit against the woman who apparently caused his traumatic wounds. However, that is an option that he could have considered, especially if the evidence suggests that other driver was indeed at fault. A successful litigation could result in a monetary award to provide for his family and also help pay for the extra monetary burdens that such horrendous injuries undoubtedly require.
