Our New York Motorcycle Accident Lawyer aggressively represents bikers who sustained serious injuries as a result of motorcycle accidents throughout New York State, including bikers struck by cars, trucks, buses or other motorcycles.
When a biker is involved in a collision with a car, truck or bus, the biker will often sustain serious injuries. It is obvious that the motorcyclist and passenger do not have the physical protection enjoyed by the occupants of a car, truck or bus. Therefore, the vulnerability of bikers struck by a motor vehicle such as a car, truck or bus cannot be overstated. Our aggressive New York Motorcycle Accident Lawyer will investigate your motorcycle accident, and aggressively litigate your injury case. Our goal is to maximize your recovery for your injuries..
Rules Of The Road | Drivers of Cars Need to Share the Road with Bikers
Motorcyclists have the right to share the roads in New York State with the drivers of other motor vehicles. All motorists need to obey the traffic rules. Too often, drivers of cars, trucks and buses ignore the rights of bikers.
Despite the fact that motorcyclists are entitled to be treated equally with other motorists when determining who caused a collision, it often appears that there is an underlying prejudice against the biker. Often, insurance companies and their attorneys take the position that the biker caused the accident, and that the driver and owner of the vehicle involved in the collision are not responsible for the injuries sustained by the motorcyclist or the motorcycle passenger. Our New York Motorcycle Accident Lawyer works hard to insure that our clients are treated fairly and receive the monetary compensation they deserve.
Under New York State law, bikers are governed by the same rules of the road as drivers of cars and other vehicles. In essence, all motorists must share the road responsibly with each other. The motorcyclist is entitled to the same right of way and other privileges of the road as any other motorists. A biker who is obeying the traffic laws and is injured due to the carelessness of another motorist is entitled to be compensated for his or her injuries (subject to the “serious injury” threshold that applies to all victims injured by motor vehicle accidents in New York State.) We invite you to contact our New York Motorcycle Accident Lawyer to discuss your accident and injuries.
New York State is a comparative negligence jurisdiction. Therefore, when an accident in New York State is caused either partially or completely by the defendant’s negligence, even if the injured plaintiff was partially at fault, the plaintiff is entitled to recover monetary damages for the injuries sustained (subject to the “serious injury threshold” for motor vehicle accidents in New York State), however the amount recoverable will be reduced by the percentage of fault attributable to the plaintiff. Our New York Motorcycle Accident Lawyer can explain how this might affect your personal injury case.
Medical & Hospital Expenses & Lost Wages
Although No-Fault insurance coverage is required on New York auto insurance policies, motorcycle insurance policies in New York are not required to include No-Fault insurance coverage. We recommend that you immediately check your motorcycle insurance policy and declaration page to verify whether your insurance policy contains coverage for payment of No-Fault benefits, or for medical and hospital bills and/or loss of earnings sustained while operating or occupying a motorcycle. If not, you will need to contact your health insurance company, and if required, you may need to be treated by doctors and medical practitioners who participate with your health insurance company. Your health insurance company may be entitled to a lien to recover benefits paid for treatment of injuries sustained in the accident.
