New York City Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

New York City encompassing Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island has extremely busy vehicle traffic. In the Spring and Summer, motorcycle riders join this already congested traffic on highways and city streets. Motorcycle accidents are in many ways different from other car accidents but in some ways they are similar. Many causes of motorcycle accidents are shared with the reasons for a motor vehicle accident including:

  • driver inattention
  • following too closely
  • failing to see what there is to be seen on the street
  • improper lane change
  • drunk driving or other impairment behind the wheel

From a legal standpoint, there are important differences between motorcycle accidents and car accidents. These include:

  • No Fault (PIP) benefits are usually not available to motorcycle riders meaning their medical bills are not paid by the motorcycle insurance.

Therefore motorcycle accident victims must sue for medical bills, lost wages, and other first party benefits as part of the personal injury lawsuit against the other vehicle that was alleged to be at fault.

Types of Motorcycle Accidents

  • One rider motorcycle accident or single accidents

Examples include a motorcycle rider losing control due to a wet roadway, pothole, debris, oil slick, or other hazardous condition

  • Motorcycle collision with a car
  • Motorcycle accident with a pedestrian
  • Motorcycle accident with a truck, tractor trailer, or other commercial vehicle
  • Motorcycle crash involving multiple vehicles
  • Motorcycle accident due to defective parts such as a steering mechanism or brakes

Motorcycle riders and passengers are thirty times more likely to be fatally injured in an accident compared to occupants of a motor vehicle. This of course is due to being exposed while riding and unprotected by vehicle doors, roof, railings, and other safeguards available in cars. Because of this open and exposed nature, motorcycle riders and passengers suffer injuries not ordinarily found in car accident cases including:

  • road rash
  • degloving injuries
  • scars to the face and body
  • burns
  • amputation injuries
  • eye injuries including blindness

This small law firm was very helpful and friendly. The car accident lawyers treat their clients very well. While my auto accident case was pending, the attorney kept in touch by phone or email and answered my questions. When it came time to go to court, the trial attorney was aggressive fighting for the most possible. Overall excellent.
