Fatal Motorcycle Accidents in New York
Back during 2018, a total of 154 people were killed after being involved in New York motorcycle accidents all around the state, according to authorities. Serious collisions involving motorcycles presently account for about 15% of all traffic-related fatalities across the state of New York. Many such abrupt accidents end with severe injuries or death, especially when a negligent party is the cause of the collision. Although it can be overwhelming, it is absolutely crucial for victims or bereaved loved ones to know that they may have substantial rights to pursue during such a time.
It is unfortunate that many times, motorcyclists go unobserved by other drivers. Riders can sometimes be difficult to see but that is no excuse for engaging in reckless or inattentive behavior behind the wheel. In no way should the family members of a victim be burdened by the immense costs that commonly follow a sudden accident. This is particularly true in the event that the accident was not caused by the victim but by the actions of a reckless party.
