For many New Yorkers, a motorcycle is a better transportation option than a passenger car. Unfortunately, a bike does not protect as well as a car, so when accidents occur, motorcycle riders tend to suffer more serious injuries. At Neimark & Neimark, LLP, we’ve been helping injured riders recover compensation since 1976. We understand the difficulties riders often face in establishing the cause of the crash and the liability of negligent drivers for the injuries those riders suffer. However, our willingness to persevere through tough-to-prove cases has led to positive results time and time again.
Your Uphill Battle To Prove Liability For A Motorcycle Accident.
If you are going to recover for your pain and suffering and your loss of quality of life, you must file a personal injury claim against a negligent party. Motorcyclists often have a difficult time proving that another driver was negligent, because of drivers’ claims that they “never saw [the bike] coming,” and a willingness of jurors to believe that motorcyclists are willing to take unnecessary risks. Our attorneys work with experts to reconstruct your accident to show who was at fault, to help you obtain the maximum value of your claim.
Serious Injuries In New York Motorcycle Crashes.
Since 1967, New York has required that all motorcycle riders wear a helmet. However, even the best helmets, even those approved by the Department of Transportation, only provide partial protection when a rider meets with a hard surface in a high-speed crash. The impact can cause traumatic brain injury or wrongful death even if the helmet completely protects the skull. Moreover, trauma to the neck can easily cause paralysis to all four extremities, i.e. quadriplegia. Other severe injuries to motorcyclists include:
- Broken bones
- Internal organ damage
- Road rash, which could require skin grafts
- Severe foot injuries, which could lead to amputation
