Get your medical bills paid after a motorcycle accident.
Massachusetts no-fault insurance coverage does not extend to motorcyclists. Therefore, many motorcyclists elect to purchase medical payments coverage to ensure protection in the event of a motorcycle accident. This coverage only extends to the operator of the motorcycle and not to other victims of the motorcycle crash.
If you or a loved one suffered motorcycle crash injuries and medical payments coverage is not available, we can help. Our attorneys work with your medical providers to arrange deferred payment until the successful resolution of your case.
Will helmet laws impact my financial recovery?
Motorcyclists are required by law to wear a helmet. However, if you were injured in a motorcycle accident when not wearing a helmet, it is still possible to be compensated for your injuries. While you may be considered partially at fault for your injuries, not wearing a helmet cannot eliminate your right to compensation. The amount of recovery may be reduced an amount proportional to your adjudged fault; however, our attorneys work tirelessly to maximize the compensation you receive.
