New York City Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
What to Do If You Have Been Injured in NYC
The registration of motorcycles in the United States has increased by 50%
since the year 2000. With the increase of motorcycles on roads and highways,
there has also been a rise in injuries and death from motorcycle accidents.
Motorcyclists are far more likely to be seriously injured or fatally injured
than occupants of a car or truck, due to the lack of protection.
If you or one of your loved ones were injured in a motorcycle accident
in New York, you may be able to bring a personal injury claim to compensate
you for your pain and suffering. Call us for a

Types of Injuries
The aftermath of a motorcycle crash can result in serious and sometimes
deadly injuries. Severe injuries can include:
- Road rash
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Muscular injuries
In New York, riders are required to wear helmets when they are a passenger
or operator of a motorcycle, however, even with protective headgear, there
is still a risk of head injury in a motorcycle crash. Head injuries can
be fatal, but even when a person survives a head trauma, the symptoms
of head injury are life-altering.
Traumatic brain injury can alter a person’s perception, cognitive abilities, and their
personality. Brain injuries are very difficult to diagnose and can sometimes
be present even when test results are normal. The costs associating with
caring for an individual with a brain injury are extraordinarily high.
If you have been injured while riding your motorcycle because someone else
cut you off or entered your right of way,
you are entitled to file a claim to compensate you for your pain and suffering. A New York motorcycle accident attorney from our firm can fight to get
you a fair settlement for your injuries.
Wrongful Death Accidents Due to Motorcycle Collisions
Some motorcycle crashes in New York result in the death of the motorcycle
operator or passenger. In an accident, a motorcycle rider is far more
likely to suffer fatal injuries than the occupants of a passenger vehicle.
If your loved one has died in an
auto accident or a motorcycle accident due to another person’s negligence, you
are entitled to bring
a claim for wrongful death.
The loss of a loved one in an accident is tragic, and nothing will replace
the family member you have lost, but a settlement from the insurance company
of the responsible driver can help the family of the deceased. If your
family is struggling with this situation, you need experienced personal
injury attorneys who can help you with this sensitive matter.
