Springfield, Massachusetts: Motorcycle Accidents Lawyer
“I didn’t see him.”
“She came from out of nowhere.”
“The motorcycle was skidding all over the road — it wasn’t my fault!”
These are common excuses offered by car drivers who are involved in a motorcycle crash. A motorcycle fits too easily into the blind spot of most automobiles, and until car and truck drivers learn to really look for and keep watch for motorcycles — motorcycle riders will continue to suffer serious, life-threatening injuries caused by inattentive or careless car drivers.
The first question most people have after a motorcycle crash is, “How am I going to pay my medical bills if I can’t work?” Unfortunately, motorcycle drivers do not have access to the Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits that car drivers have – there is no automatic insurance that kicks in to help pay your medical bills and lost wages.
At Alekman & DiTusa, LLC, we understand the worry faced by a motorcycle accident victim who cannot work and cannot pay his or her medical bills. We work with our clients to refer them to doctors, government agencies and other services that can help in this type of situation. We work aggressively to get cases resolved quickly to lessen the strain on any injured party.
Serious Lawyers for Serious Injuries
Motorcycle accidents rarely result in minor injuries. Bike riders are too vulnerable. Motorcycle crashes usually result in major damage like broken bones, road rash and scarring, concussions and traumatic brain injuries. For this reason, you need a personal injury attorney who has experience with motorcycle crash cases and with cases involving serious personal injury.
Traumatic brain injuries can occur in motorcycle accidents – especially if the biker was not wearing a helmet. If you or a loved one was involved in an accident and are experiencing severe mood shifts, blurred vision and other odd symptoms, seek medical treatment and contact our brain injury lawyers as soon as possible.
$50,000 Settlement for Biker
Attorney DiTusa recently obtained a $50,000 settlement for a client who fractured his pelvis in an unwitnessed motorcycle accident. Attorney DiTusa was able to prove that the accident was caused by a car, which cut off his client. The settlement was reached despite the fact that no contact was made between the motorcycle and the car, the car did not stop at the accident scene and the driver was never identified.
