- Damage to your motorcycle
- Disfigurement (if any)
- Death benefits (if applicable)
- Among other losses
PIP or Personal Injury Protection, otherwise known as no-fault, is a law in Massachusetts that allows you to get money for your medical bills and lost income from your own insurance company, even if you are at fault in the accident.
If the other driver was at fault and you reach at least $2,000 in medical bills (unless you have a broken bone or a scar, etc.), you may be entitled to a cash settlement from the other driver’s insurance company.
Typically, a person who has a broken bone or needs surgery will get more money than someone who has a back or neck sprain. Also, the time that your doctor indicates that you have had pain is important as the longer you are in pain, the more money the insurance company will give you. Our experienced motorcycle accident lawyers here in Massachusetts are happy to tell you what your case could be worth.
What Is The Legal Fee?
Like most personal injury attorneys, we charge a 1/3 of your settlement, if we get you money. Otherwise there is no fee. Remember…”good lawyers don’t cost more…they get you more.”
What Insurance Coverages Are Available In MA?
In addition to PIP Insurance, the minimum amount of liability coverage a vehicle must have in Massachusetts is $20,000/$40,000. This means that a person injured in a motorcycle accident will have at least $20,000 available to them from the other driver’s insurance company. Also, underinsurance coverage is mandatory as well and the minimum amount of coverage is also $20,000/$40,000, however unless you have more than $20,000 in coverage you cannot stack these coverages.

Why Are Motorcycle Cases More Difficult?
Often it is not clear in motorcycle accident cases as to who is at fault because the other driver will often try to blame the accident on the motorcyclist. Also, the insurance companies often will try to show that the motorcyclist is at fault and not make a good offer to settle the case. Insurance companies care more about profit than giving you a great settlement so they try to pay you less. Fortunately, our lawyers here have been handling motorcycle accident cases in Massachusetts for a long time so we can get you all the money you deserve.
What Can Our Lawyers Here Do For You?
Our experienced Massachusetts motorcycle accident lawyers can do a number of things to help you get a better settlement:
- Do an immediate investigation of the motorcycle accident.
- Make sure you are treating with the right doctors and that they order the appropriate tests such as an MRI, etc.
- Review your medical records to make sure your doctors properly document all your injuries and pain and suffering.
- Make sure all applicable insurance companies are put on notice of your case.
- Help you get proper lost wages documentation.
- Advise you about all that is going on with your case at all times.
What Death Benefits Are Available?
In cases where motorcycle accidents are fatal, the deceased rider’s survivors may have a valid wrongful death claim if the other driver was at fault. Wrongful death claims may entitle surviving family members to different types of compensation, such as: lost wages, medical expenses, burial expenses, pain and suffering, mental anguish and the loss of relationship with the spouse, children, or parents left behind following the motorcyclist’s death.
To determine the value of future lost income, typically we will hire an expert to determine the deceased’s would-have-been earning capacity for the rest of their life.
