Motorcycle Accidents in New York
Motorcycle accidents are a common cause of injuries in New York each year. Unfortunately, these accidents can take place for a number of reasons. The majority of accidents that we see are caused by negligent drivers.
Many motorcyclists are left with significant injuries following crashes due to drivers who are speeding. When drivers are traveling too fast, they may not be able to stop their vehicles in time to avoid striking motorcyclists who are traveling nearby. In addition, we see many drivers switch their lanes in a reckless manner without checking their blind spots or looking for motorcyclists. Due to the fact that these vehicles are much smaller than others on the road, it can be challenging for drivers to see them, especially if they are not paying attention or if they are engaging in reckless actions.
After being hurt in an accident due to the negligent or careless actions of another driver, motorcyclists have the ability to pursue personal injury claims.
