Motorcycle Accidents in New York State

As a claims representative from a major U.S. insurance company once said, when you ride, the question is not whether you will have an accident, but when and how bad. We are available to talk to you about your claim and insurance coverage questions. You need to talk with an experienced lawyer who can guide you with proper counseling and advice to get the answers you need.

Motorcycle accidents lead to many serious musculoskeletal injuries, fractures, spinal cord injuries, head traumas and fatalities each year. Motorcyclists are at a greater risk of injuries than most other motorists because they are not as well protected. Many accidents involve cars making a left turn directly in front of the bike, being run off the road, especially on curves, being side-swiped, struck from behind, head-on collisions and alcohol-related incidents. We will be able to help assess your injuries and determine whether you have a substantial and viable claim on which you should move forward. A personal injury lawyer may try to convince you he or she is a motorcycle accident lawyer, but a motorcycle accident is not like any other motor vehicle accident. The stress on your body from trying to avoid an accident or trying to keep the bike upright can itself cause stress and damage to ligaments, tendons and other soft tissue. Even if another vehicle is not involved, the damage you sustain from a minor incident can be very serious. It is important to get immediate medical attention. We know it is also important to secure medical coverage in such situations. We can help you find that coverage if it exists in your situation. This is one of the many reasons why many motorcyclists consult and retain us for their case.

The State of New York, ranked sixth among states in the number of licensed motorcyclists and registered motorcycles, now offers Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) rider courses in at least 24 training sites to ensure that motorcyclists have the knowledge and skills to operate a motorcycle safely and to properly protect themselves on the road. In the United States, the primary overseer of motorcycle safety training is the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, which operates over 1,500 RiderCourse sites in the United States.

To protect yourself from being involved in a accident, you should be sure to get professional training in riding, secure proper licensing, use helmets that meet Department of Transportation safety standards, properly maintain your bike, avoid sharing a lane with a driver who may not become aware of your presence, wear protective clothing, and make sure your attire is made of abrasion-resistant material. We know that all drivers are required to carry liability insurance, personal injury protection and uninsured motorist coverage. Your ability to recover will depend on the causes and severity of the injury, as well as your compliance with the law and other safety precautions. Every motorcycle enthusiast should know several key safety factors that will help him or her when riding a motorcycle. First, one should always wear safety equipment, including a helmet. Second, do not ride in hazardous weather or road conditions. You may be an excellent driver, but others are not—do not put your life in the hands of other drivers. Third, never ride carelessly or perform tricks or stunts.
