EXPERIENCED NATIONWIDE MOTORCYCLE INJURY ATTORNEY HELPS CLIENTS WHO HAVE BEEN INJURED IN CRASHES

Motorcycle injuries vary from individual to individual and from accident to accident. However, lawyers and doctors who work with injured motorcyclists tend to observe common injuries that many accidents victims tend to suffer. Not all accidents cause lifelong injuries, but most create severe medical concerns and considerable pain – at least in the short term – which may have a significant impact on your quality of life.

It’s important to note, as well, that it’s not unusual when shock and an adrenaline rush after a crash to convince you to brush off any minor aches and pains. However, when you consider the long list of common injuries that occur as the result of motorcycle crashes, you can easily understand why no accident victim should avoid a medical examination. Further, over time, both you and your loved ones should stay alert to any behavioral changes and health-related concerns that may be delayed ramifications of the accident.

EXPERIENCED PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEYS REPRESENT CLIENTS HURT IN MANY COMMON TYPES OF MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS THROUGHOUT THE UNITED STATES

The statistics are in – and they are sobering. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are five times more likely to be seriously injured in an accident than those in car crashes. Further, bikers are 26 times more likely to die in a crash than people in a car accident. There are many reasons why motorcycle accidents occur and many of them involve the driver of the other vehicle simply “not seeing” the biker.

Unfortunately, regardless of the reasons motorcycle accidents happen, most have one thing in common. The injuries sustained by a surviving biker can be very severe and impact them for the rest of their lives.

COMMON CAUSES OF MOTORCYCLE CRASHES IN THE US

As we have investigated the causes of our clients’ motorcycle accidents over the years, certain themes have emerged. Over time, our motorcycle accident lawyers have discovered that, in general, many motorcycle crashes occur for reasons such as these:

The Driver of the Other Vehicle Didn’t See the Motorcycle: This, unfortunately, is a common cause of accidents. Bikes are smaller and easily hidden in blind spots.

Failure to Yield: The driver of a car, truck or bus — or another motorcycle rider — fails to yield to our client at highway entrance and exit ramps; at entrances and exits to gas stations, parking lots and parking garages; on city streets, county roads and state highways — when changing lanes, turning left or approaching intersections controlled by red lights or stop signs. After an accident, these drivers often claim that they had not seen the motorcycle before the crash.

Distracted Driving: Drivers of cars, trucks and buses are distracted while driving, either talking on cell phones, texting or referring to GPS (global positioning system) devices.

Roadway Hazards: Weather and roadway conditions can play a significant role in how an accident occurs

Merchandise: Defective motorcycle components and defective helmets can cause serious crashes

FAQ: CAN VICTIMS OF HIT-AND-RUN MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS GET COMPENSATION?

In many hit-and-run motorcycle accidents, the negligent driver is never caught. The victim is still left in need of compensation for medical costs, lost wages, decreased earning potential, emotional trauma, bike repair and other losses. In many cases, the victim is able to pursue compensation from his or her own insurance company. Our lawyers will review your motorcycle accident case to determine if this option is available to you.

SAFE DRIVING TIPS FOR MOTORCYCLISTS

Motorcycle ridership is on the rise across the country, and New York is no exception. Every year, thousands of riders are injured or killed in motorcycle accidents. There are steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of being injured in an accident.

Safe Driving Tips for Motorcyclists

Maintain Your Bike – Motorcycles should be checked regularly to make sure that they’re in good working order.

Practice Safe Driving Skills –Obeying traffic rules, like speed limits, is critical to safety when driving a motorcycle.

Never Drive While Impaired or Distracted –You should never operate a motorcycle if you’ve consumed alcohol or any other substance that can impair your judgment. You should likewise avoid driving when you’re tired or fatigued.

Wear a Helmet – Wearing a motorcycle helmet is required under New York law. Many serious motorcycle accident injuries can be attributed to riders not wearing helmets, and head trauma is the number one cause of death or serious injury.

Invest in Good Gear –Protective gear and clothing can reduce injuries if you’re involved in a crash. Wear bright clothing and use retroreflective material.

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.
