Motorcycle Accidents in New York 

New York sees a large number of motorcycle accidents each year, many of which can be prevented. Though drivers are supposed to pay close attention to the roads around them, this does not always happen, and so motorcyclists are at risk. Because they have no protection from harm, they are particularly vulnerable on our roads and could sustain serious injuries or even lose their lives in an accident. In fact, in 2018, it was reported that 3,827 motorcyclists sustained injuries in New York accidents. You have options after a motorcycle collision and should speak with an attorney as soon as possible if you have been hurt.

It is normal to feel alone and confused after a New York motorcycle collision. If you believe that another party is to blame for your collision, it is important that you move forward with a claim as quickly as possible so that you can retain your rights. However, you will have to show that some of the following aspects were present in your accident:

  • A driver owed you a duty of care
  • The driver breached that duty of care
  • The breach of duty led to your collision
  • Your accident caused damages
