Motorcycle Accidents in New York
In 2018, a total of 154 people were killed following various New York motorcycle accidents all throughout the state, according to official records. Accidents that involve motorcycles account for around 15% of all vehicle-related fatalities across the state of New York. Many sudden accidents end with catastrophic injuries or death, especially when a reckless party or other negligent entity is the cause of the incident. While it is certainly overwhelming for the family of the victim, it is essential that they understand their right to pursue compensation during such a difficult time.
In many instances, cyclists can go unobserved by other operators along the road. Riders can be hard to see, however, that is no excuse for engaging in thoughtless or otherwise negligent actions behind the wheel. In no way should the family members of a victim be encumbered by the massive costs that regularly follow an unexpected crash. This is particularly true in the event that the accident was not triggered by the victim but by the actions of a reckless driver or other entity such as a mechanic or vehicle manufacturer.
