The most important difference between a motorcycle and most other types of motor vehicles is that, when you are on a motorcycle, you’re only protected by the clothes on your back, and the helmet on your head, in the event of an accident. That is why motorcyclists have to be more cautious when driving and pay close attention when riding around other vehicles. While most riders do take precautions when riding, there are those who don’t. When a rider rides recklessly, they can cause serious injury or harm to someone else or themselves. If you’ve been hurt in a motorcycle accident, you should turn to an experienced Boston motorcycle accident attorney here at our Boston, Massachusetts law firm to help guide you through this complicated litigation process.
