Watertown Motorcycle Accident Injury Attorneys
A motorcycle accident can have devastating long term impacts. Due to the unique physics, dynamics, and size of a motorcycle, accidents are unfortunately common.
Often, motorcycle collisions with passenger vehicles result due to the car driver’s inability or failure to notice the presence of the motorcyclist within the flow of traffic. This can cause them to merge into their lane, apply brakes, or otherwise endanger the life of the motorcycle rider. Regardless of the accident cause, the injuries that result from it can extend beyond bodily harm. Those injured in a motorcycle accident know that paying for medical bills is only one of their concerns. They also find themselves facing loss of property, loss of wages, and often emotional pain and suffering. The last thing an accident victim needs is to add the stress of a rigorous legal battle to this already challenging time.
At Sweeney Merrigan Law, we get you the compensation you are rightfully owed, whether from a driver, insurance company, corporation, or even a government entity. We work hard to get the maximum payout for your motorcycle injury claims.

Serious Attorneys for Serious Injuries
When a biker is involved in a collision, serious injuries can develop into serious medical problems with long-term impacts. It is important that you pay attention to your injuries and report all aches and pains to a qualified doctor immediately for observation and continued care. Any injury not reported now may not be able to be included in your accident file when compensation is requested.
Due to the fragile nature of a motorcycle rider, the injuries suffered can often be more severe than what one would experience with a car or truck accident. Without the protection of seatbelts, airbags, or even doors, motorcyclists are vulnerable to the forces around them, namely other drivers. A careless or neglectful driver can cause an accident in an instant, leaving you with injuries such as:
- Back and Neck Injuries like Whiplash
- Head Injuries, including Concussions, Headaches, or Skull Fractures
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Bone Injuries, including Broken, Crushed, or Fractured Bones
- Spinal Cord Injuries, including Disc injuries or even Paralysis
- Severed limbs, or limbs requiring Amputation
- Connective Tissue Damage, including Torn Tendons and Ligaments
- Internal Bleeding, Organ Damage, or other Internal Injuries
- Emotional & Mental Pain and Suffering
Beyond physical injuries, mental anguish, pain and suffering, loss of wages, and other emotional or mental damage may also affect a motorcycle rider after an accident. We understand how dramatic an accident can impact many factors in your life. We are passionate about motorcycle safety and awareness and are dedicated to fight for you against the at-fault party. If you are the victim of a devastating motorcycle accident resulting in personal injury, the dedicated Watertown accident injury attorneys at Sweeney Merrigan Law are here for you.
Accidents Resulting From Negligence
When you have been a victim of an injury due to a motor vehicle accident caused by the negligence of an individual, agency, or corporation, you need dedicated, experienced legal support to ensure you get not only the compensation you deserve but also the ability and time to heal.
Motorcycle crashes are devastating to both the victim and their family. Even those who weren’t directly involved in the crash can experience mental anguish and emotional trauma. The sooner you can get resolution and compensation for your case, the sooner you can get back to taking care of yourself and your family.
There are many causes of motorcycle accidents. Our attorneys diligently examine the details of your accident to determine what occurred and who was at-fault as defined by local, state, and federal motorcycle laws.
Common causes of motorcycle wrecks involving negligent behavior include:
- Passenger vehicles tailgating or following the motorcycle too closely
- Failure to yield right of way to the motorcyclist
- Intimidating or scaring the motorcyclist with aggressive driving
- Passing too closely, or attempting to “share” a lane with a biker
If your injury was caused by any of these behaviors, you may qualify for compensation through the personal injury accident claim process, including:
- Medical bills and expenses (past and future)
- Property Damage
- Lost wages and negative impact on future employment
- Permanent Scarring and/or disfigurement
- Spousal or familial loss of consortium for wrongful death or serious injury
- Emotional pain, suffering, and mental anguish
- Punitive damages if malicious conduct was a factor
