Motorcycle Accident

Have you been injured in a motorcycle accident in Sudbury or surrounding areas? We can help you with your claim and what to do after a motorcycle accident. Our team of lawyers also have considerable years of experience in fighting criminal law and real estate law cases. 

Motorcycle accident injuries are among the most severe of all types of motor vehicle accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured while riding a motorcycle or as a passenger on a motorcycle, talk to one of Paquette & Paquette’s experienced motorcycle accident lawyers in Sudbury. We provide expert knowledge and legal advice to assist you in coping with a difficult and stressful situation.

Unlike other types of motor vehicles such as cars, trucks and SUVs, motorcycles do not have sufficient structural support to protect the driver and passengers from injury when they are involved in an accident. For that reason many motorcyclists who have been involved in an accident suffer serious or catastrophic injuries, such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries or skull fractures
  • Injuries to the spinal cord and back
  • Injuries to joints, such as knees, elbows and shoulders
  • Bone fractures, sometimes severe and often in multiple parts of the body
  • “Road Rash” or painful skin abrasions caused by skidding on the asphalt, which can lead to serious infections
  • Permanent scarring or disfigurement
  • Chronic or long term pain conditions

How to Minimize Injuries

To avoid being injured in a motorcycle accident, riders must wear personal protective equipment which include:

Jackets made of leather with special padding on the elbow, spine and shoulders
Pants with special protection for the knees and hips

How to Determine Fault

Drivers and passengers of motorcycles and mopeds must wear approved helmets. If you were not wearing it, your insurance company might view it as a contributing factor to your injuries; this could reduce your settlement. It however does not mean it was your fault.
