Every time a motorcyclist rides on the road, they are taking a risk with their lives and betting that they will not be involved in an accident. At any moment, however, if a motorcyclist fails to pay 100% attention, they are leaving themselves vulnerable to an accident. Because motorcycles are smaller than your average motor vehicle, they have limited abilities in which they are able to protect you. Generally, your only protection during an accident is to use a helmet and the clothes on your back. If you are injured while riding a motorcycle, the expert motorcycle accident attorneys at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates have decades of experience recovering money damages for our Massachusetts clients.
A Furman University student-athlete was killed in a motorcycle collision recently. Jackson Roberts, 22 years-old, was the passenger on a motorcycle that crashed late Friday night. The senior from Memphis, Tennessee was a student coach with the lacrosse team after playing for the last two seasons. He was studying economics, politics and international affairs and helped Furman win a championship in lacrosse. The accident occurred around 10 p.m., and the driver of the motorcycle, another Furman student, suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the crash. Mr. Roberts died of blunt force trauma to the head, even though he was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
