Motorcycle Accidents in New York 

Motorcycle accidents are known for being some of the most severe accidents on our roads. This is due to the fact that motorcyclists have few protections from harm when they are involved in a collision with a passenger vehicle or any other type of large vehicle. In one year’s time in New York, an average of 166 people are killed in fatal motorcycle accidents, and many others are injured. If you have been hurt in a motorcycle accident that is not your fault, it is important that you seek legal advice moving forward.

Statistics show that, in 2021, motorcycle accident fatalities accounted for 18% of all motor vehicle accidents leading to fatalities throughout New York. On top of this, they make up a large percentage of injuries as well, many of which leave victims with serious injuries. These injuries include some of the following:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Road rash
  • Fractures
