Not All Motorcycle Accidents Involve Another Vehicle

Not all motorcycle accidents involve another vehicle colliding with a motorcyclist. Many cyclists suffer serious injuries or wrongful death after taking evasive action to avoid a collision.

Drivers of cars and trucks frequently attempt to change lanes without noticing that there is a motorcyclist riding beside them. In order to avoid getting hit, the motorcycle rider must swerve out of the way. In the process, the motorcycle rider may veer onto the shoulder of the road, hit loose gravel and get thrown from the bike. This is just one of many examples of single-vehicle motorcycle accidents caused by the negligence of another driver.

Did the Negligent Driver Stop?

If the negligent driver stopped, our attorneys may handle the accident in much the same way we would any other motorcycle accident case. Unfortunately, these cases often involve drivers who continue on their way, possibly unaware of the harm they caused. We know how to get results in these hit-and-run motorcycle accidents.

Common Types of Motorcycle Accidents in New York

We’ve helped countless other motorcycle collision victims which gives us the insight to know how to proceed with your case. Unfortunately, many motorcyclists have suffered injuries in similar accidents. However, every motorcycle crash and every set of circumstances are unique. A detailed investigation by our experienced accident reconstruction experts and other investigators may uncover the cause of your accident, allowing us to win you maximum financial compensation.

Common Types of Crashes Cause Severe Injuries

  • Loss of control by an inexperienced motorcyclist
  • Weather conditions, such as blinding sunlight or a rain-slicked highway surface
  • Inattentiveness or failure of one motorcyclist to see the other in time
  • Reckless driving or stunt riding
  • Racing behavior
  • Crowding by drivers of cars or trucks who forced the two motorcycles into a lane-splitting formation
  • Failure to yield at an intersection, highway entrance or exit or on a county highway curve

Insurance issues may be problematic in a double motorcycle crash when injuries are significant and neither motorcyclist carries sufficient medical coverage. An experienced motorcycle injury lawyer is a valuable source of information and help as one or both motorcyclists seek compensation for injuries — or when a family seeks compensation after a fatal double-motorcycle crash.

What not to do after a motorcycle accident

The wrong move can make it extremely difficult to get the compensation you deserve. Insurance companies are looking for opportunities to limit or deny you compensation. We encourage you not to give them any.

  • Do not make a statement to or sign anything given to you by an insurance agent. Do not even talk to an insurance agent. When you discuss the accident to the police, be very straightforward and limit your discussion to the facts.
  • Do not apologize to or argue with the other driver. Limit your discussion with the other driver to an exchange of information. Do not sign anything.
  • Do not get your bike repaired. Doing so before an attorney has had a chance to have the bike properly inspected and photographed is essentially erasing one of the most important pieces of evidence in your case.
