A 25-year-old Massachusetts man recently died in a tragic motorcycle wreck in Portsmouth. Police officers were dispatched to the area around 4:45 p.m. after receiving calls about a serious accident. According to law enforcement, the man was on the on-ramp to the northbound side of the highway at the time of the crash. He was immediately transported to Charlton Memorial Hospital in Fall River, where he was pronounced dead. The police did not release the victim’s name. No other vehicles or individuals were involved in the accident
If a motorcycle crash is caused by someone else’s negligence, the victim can potentially file a personal injury lawsuit to recoup compensation for his or her injuries and losses. While the damages will vary in every case, an injured rider can generally seek compensation for medical expenses, property damage, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and other damages.
