Helping Injured Motorcyclists
In Massachusetts, the drivers of cars and trucks are required to share the road safely with motorcyclists. Unfortunately, all too often, drivers change lanes and make turns without looking out properly for smaller vehicles such as motorcycles, resulting in serious accidents.
If you have been injured by a negligent driver, experienced Bedford-Concord motorcycle accident attorney Peter G. DeGelleke can help. Mr. DeGelleke has been practicing law in Massachusetts since 1977 and has helped many injured motorcyclists pursue successful personal injury claims.
Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable for Serious Injuries
Although motorcycles have been on the roads for almost as long as cars, many drivers simply do not pay attention to them when making driving decisions. Thankfully, drivers who cause motorcycle accidents can be held accountable for the consequences of their actions.
Because motorcyclists are more exposed than the drivers and passengers of heavier vehicles, they are more likely to suffer catastrophic injuries in motor vehicle accidents.
If you have been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, Mr. DeGelleke will work with your doctors to fully document your injuries. He also works with other expert professionals — including private investigators, life care planners, and vocational rehabilitationists — as needed.
It is important to note that even if you were violating Massachusetts' helmet law by riding without a helmet, you may still have a personal injury claim against the driver who hit you.
