Motorcycle Accidents Archives

What are some common causes of motorcycle accidents?

Even those Massachusetts' residents who do not have motorbikes have to admit-when they see a motorcyclist going down the road in front of them, the wind in their hair and the world at their feet, a little part of them wishes they were also on that bike. With the few summer months finally upon us, it is common to see motorcyclists on the road, enjoying the weather and avoiding the traffic when possible.

Wrong-way driver causes Massachusetts motorcycle accident

Motorcycle season is upon us. With the warmer weather will come more Massachusetts residents turning to their motorcycles as a way to unwind after work and on the weekend, take a quick trip to run an errand, or even replace their normal methods of commuting to school or work. Regardless of the reason why an individual chooses to ride a bike, it is important that he or she is aware of the risks. These motorists need to ensure that they are driving as defensively as possible, because other motorists may suffer from motorcycle unawareness. This, and other forms of negligence, can result in a tragic motorcycle accident that leaves a wake of destruction, injury, and death.

Motorcycle Awareness Month and accident prevention

Warm weather is upon us, which means motorcycle riding season in Massachusetts has begun. In fact, May is Motorcycle Awareness Month, which aims to increase awareness and safety for motorcyclists. This is imperative, as thousands of riders are injured or killed every year. Just two years ago, in 2014, the U.S. saw nearly 5,000 motorcyclist fatalities, making up 14 percent of all highway traffic deaths that year. With so much devastation, pain and heartache caused by these types of wrecks, it is important for motorists to ask themselves what they can do to better prevent motorcycle accidents.
