Motorcycle riders are at an inherent disadvantage when compared to the drivers of other vehicles. A biker lacks the protective shell of a vehicle. Drivers of cars and trucks may fail to see motorcyclists, particularly when those drivers are changing lanes or at intersections. On top of that, many motorcyclists don’t carry no-fault insurance, so when they are in a serious accident, they may find it difficult to obtain compensation.

Investigating A Motorcycle Accident
Having represented clients in all types of motor vehicle accidents, we are fully aware of the challenges that a motorcycle accident case presents. Unlike an accident involving a car or truck, a motorcycle accident may not leave visible signs of the collision such as skid marks or an extensive debris field. Witnesses to the accident often view the event not through the eyes of a motorcyclist, but from the perspective of an enclosed vehicle. Even the police report may not accurately describe what really happened. Working with an accident reconstruction professional, we will document how the accident happened and who was responsible. This will enable us to provide effective advocacy in settlement negotiations or in court.
Experienced In Catastrophic Injury Cases
You can’t assume that you will have health care insurance forever. Therefore, it is important in a case involving very serious injuries to obtain the financial resources that can pay for needed medical care for the rest of your life.
Our New York motorcycle accident attorneys have extensive experience in cases involving life-changing injuries such as traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. In these types of cases, we work with medical specialists to learn of our clients’ medical needs. We often invite a life care planner to join the legal effort. This medical professional can identify all of the medical care, rehabilitation therapy and personal services the accident victim will need for the rest of his or her life. We will then seek compensation for these needs as well as all other compensable losses and suffering.
