Motorcycle Accidents in New York
Motorcycle accidents are some of the most severe accidents that happen on our roads in the state of New York every year. In 2021, it was reported that 200 motorcyclists were killed in fatal accidents in New York, and many others were injured. From the moment that you get on a motorcycle to ride, you expect that other drivers will be on the lookout for you and use special precautions to ensure that you are not injured. However, this is not always the case, and these collisions still occur in the blink of an eye. Speaking with a legal advocate is incredibly important after a motorcycle crash.
Motorcyclists have no protection from harm in an accident, which means that the injuries that occur can be incredibly severe. These include some of the following:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Internal organ damage
- Broken bones
