Motorcycle Accident

We are experienced motorcycle accident lawyers. We want to help people and their families who are suffering because of an injury or who died in a motorcycle accident. Motorcycles are subject to the same rules of the road as cars. Riders should also be treated with the same respect in court.

Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident can profoundly impact your emotional, physical, and financial welfare. While we cannot reverse the effects of an accident, we are a motorcycle accident law firm dedicated to your wellbeing. Our experienced lawyers help victims of motorcycle accidents and their families recover the significant losses sustained in motorcycle accidents.

If you or a loved one has been injured, or if you have lost a loved one, in a motorcycle accident, we are here to support you through the difficult aftermath of the event. Our work is to navigate the complexities of prosecuting your claim to ensure that you receive fair and just compensation while you focus on your recovery.

New York law does not cover motorcycles under the state‚Äôs No-Fault Law. For this reason, it can be difficult for motorcyclists or motorcycle passengers to receive financial compensation for their injuries. Our motorcycle injury lawyers have decades of experience in fighting for motorcycle accident victims to get the medical care and financial compensation they deserve.  

What are common causes of motorcycle accidents? 

Multiple factors may contribute to accidents and injury. Common causes of motorcycle accidents include: 

  • Cars making left turns
  • Head-on collisions
  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Poor visibility
  • Motorcycle part defect
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Texting or talking on a cell phone
  • Failure to yield
  • Driving under the influence 
  • Construction
  • Disobeying traffic laws

What are common injuries caused by motorcycle accidents? 

Motorcycle accidents often lead to severe injury. In New York, around 140 motorcyclists die each year and over 1,500 are hospitalized due to traffic collisions. 

While they make up a small portion of registered vehicles, motorcyclists account for an outsized percentage of fatalities on the road. Even when drivers and passengers survive a crash, they may sustain serious and catastrophic injuries such as: 

  • Spinal injury
  • Brain and head injury
  • Road rash
  • Broken bones or fractures
  • Disfigurement
  • Leg injuries
  • Nerve damage 

What can a motorcycle accident lawyer do to help me?

Our experienced lawyers can help you bring a claim against the person or persons responsible for your motorcycle accident. We strive to protect your legal rights and help you recover the compensation you deserve. Also, as motorcycles are subject to the same rules of the road that govern cars, we believe riders should be treated with the same respect in court. 

Our motorcycle injury attorneys provide dedicated services and experienced analysis of your accident, moving you step-by-step through your claim, all with the goal of recovering the maximum compensation available to you. 

This means we handle communications with insurance companies, work with subject matter experts, properly file all paperwork, and, if necessary to recover your compensation, take your case to trial. Our motorcycle accident attorneys are very familiar with and appear regularly in the White Plains State and Federal courts where we routinely represent clients.
