Motorcycle Accidents in New York

Motorcyclists have the joy of riding in the wide open air as a form of transportation and recreation. Unfortunately, there is also a huge risk to motorcyclists on our roads. This is especially true if they are involved in crashes with larger vehicles. Hundreds of lives are lost as a result of New York motorcycle accidents each year. In one year’s time, it is estimated that approximately 166 lives are lost due to these accidents within the state on average. If you have been hurt in a motorcycle accident that is not your fault, you should speak with a legal advocate that you can rely on.

Motorcycles offer less protection than cars, which is why passenger vehicle drivers are supposed to watch out for these vulnerable parties at all times. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to prove who is at fault for your accident. On top of this, the other party or parties might try to pin the blame on you even though the accident is not your fault. There are many severe injuries that stem from motorcycle accidents, such as the following:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Organ damage
  • Paralysis
  • Fractures
