Motorcycles are a fairly common mode of transportation for New Yorkers. Unfortunately, bikers are vulnerable on the road, even when they’re wearing all the necessary protective gear. No matter what they wear, bikers are still directly impacted by an accident, and are much more exposed to danger than a driver protected by the steel frame of a car. That’s why motorcycle collisions often end in very serious physical injuries.
After a crash caused by another driver, don’t wait. Call a New York City motorcycle accident lawyer with Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP, at 800-223-2814. We will assess your case and see if there’s compensation available to take the financial burden off of you and put it where it belongs – on the driver responsible for injuring you.
Whether driving a car, motorcycle, or riding a bike, sometimes people get distracted and lose control of their vehicle. All it takes is a split second. There are other things that can contribute to motorcycle accidents, including:
There are other miscellaneous factors that contribute to motorcycle accidents. Since motorcycles are a two-wheeled mode of transportation, they are not as stable as regular cars. They are also smaller in size and lighter in weight, making them “harder to see” and far more susceptible to damage, even in a minor collision.
Walking away from a motorcycle accident with no injuries is almost impossible. The lower extremities, including the legs and feet, are most likely to be hurt. The arms, head, and neck are also vulnerable. Common injuries include fractures and road rash, and serious accidents often end in traumatic brain injury, spinal injury, or death.
Because motorcycle collisions involve severe damage, they also run high in cost. Hospital bills, rehabilitation time, and lost wages are all major costs to be considered after a crash takes place. That’s why, if you were involved in a motorcycle accident, we strongly recommend that you speak with a lawyer who can help you start putting your life back together.
Our dedicated personal injury attorneys at Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP provide aggressive legal representation for NY motorcycle accident victims. We will handle the entire legal process from start to finish while you focus on recovery.
Some of the major types of damages available to injured victims in New York motorcycle accident claims include the following:
In New York, the rules are very different for motorcycle accidents than for car accidents. Although the State of New York provides personal injury protection (a.k.a. no-fault insurance) for injured victims in motor vehicle accidents, it DOES NOT provide no-fault insurance for injured motorcyclist. As a result, drivers and riders injured on a motorcycle may not obtain no-fault insurance to pay for their medical bills or lost wages no matter how severe their injuries may be. However, injured motorcyclist accidents are not subject to the “serious injury” threshold requirement under Section 5102(d) of the No-Fault Law. Thus, a rider or passenger injured on a motorcycle can have minor injuries and still bring a claim that would normally not pass the No-Fault threshold.
Our experienced NYC motorcycle injury attorneys can help you navigate this difficult time and guide you in your bodily injury claim. We have a highly skilled legal team and diligent support that will fight to recover the highest compensation in your case.
