Motorcyclists are often automatically blamed for accidents and accused of careless driving. However, at the Law Office of Philip L. Arnel, we recognize that an individual's thrill of riding does not make him or her a reckless driver. We relentlessly pursue compensation for motorcyclists injured in motorcycle accidents. Additionally, motorcycle accident lawyer Arnel provides compassionate representation for families who have lost loved ones in motorcycle accidents.

Overcoming the Reckless-Driver Stigma
Unfortunately, one prejudice many motorcycle drivers face when pursuing liability is the idea that motorcyclists are careless drivers. We zealously work to remove this stigma and prove other causes for motorcycle accidents and motorcycle-car collisions, such as:
- Dangerous road conditions: Dangerous road conditions, such as poorly maintained roads, roads with loose gravel, roads with storm debris, or wet/slippery roads, can cause tire spinouts and contribute to motorcycle crashes.
- Defective products: Defective motorcycle parts, such as defective brakes or defective tires, can cause the motorcyclist to crash or run off the road.
- Other drivers: Inattentive drivers on the road frequently are the root of motorcycle accidents. An inattentive driver rear-ends the motorcyclist; a negligent driver fails to see the motorcyclist when changing lanes or turning; and drivers are careless of the motorcyclist's safety and follow too closely.
Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Lawsuits
Regardless of fault in a motorcycle accident, insurance companies and insurance adjusters are not on your side. Although money may be offered upfront, it should not be accepted before you speak with an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer. In fact, an insurance company offering money to an injured individual or a family after a fatal motorcycle crash is typically a sign of the insurance company's concern that full compensation in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit would be much higher. We will work to protect your right to complete compensation.
Whether you have been involved in a hit-and-run accident or a loved one was hurt in a traumatic dirt-bike accident, motorcycle accident attorney Arnel will strive to obtain just compensation. Contact a Massachusetts motorcycle accident lawyer today to schedule a free initial consultation.
