Motorcycle Accident Injury Information 

These accidents can be devastating as motorcyclists are exposed and vulnerable out on the roads.  A shocking 4693 motorcyclists died in crashes in 2015.  The fatality rate for motorcyclists is roughly 27 times greater than for passenger car occupants.  In 2015 41% of motorcyclist deaths involved single vehicle crashes, while 59% involved multiple vehicle accidents.  Disturbingly, motorcyclist deaths have been rising in the last 20 years.

These accidents can also cause extremely serious injuries including soft tissue injuries, bruising (contusions), scarring, abrasions, fractures, dislocations, among other injuries.

Given how common these accidents are, and how vulnerable they are, it is important for motorcyclists to carry enough motorcycle accident insurance.  Carrying quality health insurance is also critical for motorcyclists.  Unlike cars, PIP coverage is not available on Massachusetts motorcycle insurance policies.  However, if you strike a pedestrian with your motorcycle, PIP coverage is available to that person.  You should purchase plenty of Medical Payments insurance coverage.  Be sure to carry sufficient health insurance coverage as well.  It is quite inexpensive to purchase higher Medical Payments and underinsured motorist limits.

You may also make a claim for pain and suffering with the insurance company for the driver that caused the accident.  Many car owners have only limited liability policies.  It therefore makes sense to make sure you purchase plenty of underinsured motorist coverage.  This you can turn to if the driver who caused the crash has insufficient insurance to cover your injuries.
