Motorcycle Accidents in New York
In just one year’s time in New York, over 141 people lost their lives in New York motorcycle accidents. Motorcycle accidents are happening at higher rates than usual and tend to lead to severe and life-threatening nature in some cases. These accidents also lead to thousands of hospitalizations every year. Motorcyclists are some of the most vulnerable parties on our roads, which means that they are prone to some of the most catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord injuries, TBIs, broken bones, and more. Because the aftermath of a motorcycle accident can have a huge impact on your life, it is important that you have a knowledgeable legal advocate on your side.
Far too often, the recklessness of passenger vehicle drivers leads to motorcycle accidents. Motorcyclists have few protections from harm against larger vehicles, which means that they are prone to extreme harm that can send them to the hospital for an extended period of time. This also means that you could miss out on time at work and suffer from emotional effects that you never expected. It is important that you act quickly to retain your rights after an accident that is not your fault.
