The Representation You Need In A Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit

Motorcycles and motor scooters are increasingly popular options for transportation. However, along with the easy parking, great mileage and sense of personal freedom do come some risks. Unfortunately, even the best bikers can't always avoid the hazard of a careless or reckless car or truck driver. Bikers and their passengers are exposed, and a collision can result in serious injuries.

Serving Motorcycle Accident Victims And Their families Since 1965

When there is a motorcycle accident, the police and the other driver often blame the motorcyclist, but it is often not the biker who is at fault. It's the job of the personal injury lawyer to investigate the accident in order to prove fault. There are a number of things car and truck drivers do that endanger motorcyclists:

  • Cars swerve into the motorcycle's lane, failing to check their blind spots.
  • Oncoming cars make sudden left-hand turns in front of motorcycles, causing the motorcyclist either to stop suddenly and lose control of the cycle or to collide with the car.
  • Car and truck drivers fail to obey red lights or stop signs.
  • Drivers tailgate motorcycles without understanding how much faster cycles can stop than cars, then run over bikers when their cars fail to stop in time.

The fact that these behaviors are common does not mean they are acceptable. Motorcyclists have the same rights as other drivers on the road — and the drivers of other vehicles are required to honor those rights and to pay attention to the other vehicles around them.

Our New York personal injury lawyers investigate every motorcycle accident case thoroughly. We carefully review the police report. We interview witnesses. We may work with an accident reconstruction expert to prepare materials for trial that demonstrate our client was not at fault and should be fairly compensated.

If you have been involved in an accident while riding a motorcycle, chances are your injuries are quite serious. It's vital that you receive full compensation for all of your losses, so your medical bills are paid and your lost wages and damages covered. We're ready to fight for you in court. We handle all personal injury cases from inception through settlement negotiations, trial and any necessary appeals.
