Skilled Handling Of Motorcycle Accidents

"I didn't see him."

When drivers crash into motorcyclists, that's what they always say. "I didn't see the motorcycle." When drivers run into other drivers, they often say the same thing. However, most drivers train themselves to look for cars. They forget about cyclists. On the road, motorcyclists are smaller in size and number, especially in northern states like Massachusetts.

Motorcycle Accident Facts

Usually, cyclists know to watch out for drivers. Unfortunately, the reverse isn't necessarily true. Operators of motor vehicles aren't trained to see motorcycles, especially when changing lanes or making turns. Coupled with speed and a cycle's small size, visibility is often poor, especially at night.

Road conditions are also more of a problem for cyclists. A crack or bump in the pavement that a car can barely feel can be enough to wipe out a cycle.

When cyclists do wipe out or collide with cars, their injuries are far more severe. They are more likely to have spine, back or head injuries that affect them for the rest of their lives.

Unfortunately, there is often a bias against motorcyclists in the courts. Some will assume that, just because someone is young, male or on a motorcycle they must be the reckless or negligent one. Attorney John McKenna knows that is not always true. He is aware of this bias, and is dedicated to overcoming it so that motorcycle accident victims can get the compensation they need and deserve.
