Massachusetts is home to some of the country’s most beautiful and scenic highways and byways, which makes for some memorable motorcycle rides. But even the most bucolical ride can turn into a nightmare when a serious motorcycle accident occurs. Motorcycles offer no protection for riders and their passengers who are subject to impacts and collisions on the roadway that can leave them seriously injured or even dead.

According to Massachusetts.gov, two-thirds of crashes on the state’s roadways involving motorcycles are the fault of the drivers of automobiles, not motorcyclists. Sometimes drivers fail to see an oncoming motorcycle until avoiding a crash is not possible. Other times, drivers may make sudden left turns in front of motorcycles, leading to horrific crashes. Drivers may also have an obstructed line of sight, particularly if the traffic around them includes SUVS, large trucks, or vans.
Often, though, the fault of a motorcycle crash is driver negligence. Drivers operating their vehicles while texting is a major cause for concern on all of our nation’s roadways, not just those in Massachusetts. Watching videos, talking on the phone, digging on the radio, fiddling with a GPS unit, and other distractions are also contributors to devastating motorcycle accidents. Unfortunately, some drivers drive while intoxicated—by drugs, alcohol, or both drugs and alcohol—and this leads to serious crashes with motorcyclists.
In addition, road conditions can cause motorcycle accidents. For instance, construction zone debris such as loose gravel in the roadway can cause a motorcyclist to lose control and wreck. The same holds true for hitting potholes that upset the motorcycle and cause the driver to crash.
