Other drivers are often responsible for motorcycle accidents in Massachusetts. For example, another motorist could make a left-hand turn or change lanes in front of a motorcyclist. Or, a motorist may fail to yield when necessary to a motorcyclist. Other times, a motorist rear-ends a motorcyclist, or runs through a red light or stop sign. Speeding drivers and drunk drivers can also cause motorcycle accidents. However, whatever the cause, motorcycle accidents can be serious or even deadly affairs. After all, motorcycles, being so much smaller and lighter than an automobile, do not have physics on their side when it comes to a crash.
When a motorcyclist is injured in a crash, he or she may incur many damages, such as medical expenses, rehabilitation expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering. For these reasons, motorcyclists involved in a crash caused by another motorist may want to seek compensation from the responsible party.
