Leading Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcyclists are not usually the cause of severe motorcycle accidents, even though that might seem impossible. In reality, motorcycle accidents are often caused by negligent motorists who are on the road with the injured motorcyclist. Drivers who do not share the road responsibly with smaller vehicles put them in increased danger of getting into a bad wreck.
Drivers can cause motorcycle accidents by:
- Tailgating a motorcyclist, especially when approaching a stop
- Turning left without a green arrow and in front of a motorcyclist
- Merging or changing lanes without checking blind spots
Roadway hazards are also serious problems for motorcycle riders. A pothole that might anger a motorist who drives over it in a passenger vehicle could spell disaster for a motorcyclist who hits it at full speed. Our law firm knows how to file motorcycle accident claims against any liable party, whether it is another motorist, a local municipality in charge of roadway maintenance, etc.
Common Injuries Suffered in Motorcycle Accidents
It is not usual for a motorcycle accident to end with only minor injuries. Because motorcyclists do not have any heightened vehicle protection – like a metal frame or airbags – they are vulnerable to catastrophic injuries or even death.
Our law firm can help motorcyclists who have suffered serious injuries like:
- Brain injuries
- Back injuries
- Broken bones
- Road rash
The medical treatments needed to help an injured motorcyclist are typically extensive and expensive. Surgeries, skin grafts, months of rehabilitative therapies, and more are all commonly recommended for severely injured motorcyclists. You should not have to pay for their costs out of your pocket. We are here to help you sue or file against the responsible party, so you can get your necessary medical treatments without breaking your finances.
What If the Driver Blames You?
Drivers often blame motorcycle riders for crashes because they don’t want to admit to causing a terrible wreck. If you are being blamed by the driver who you know hit you, not the other way around, then do not panic or get rude with them or their insurer. Instead, call (888) 211-1116 and tell our Manhattan motorcycle accident attorneys what is going on.
Using our extensive legal backgrounds, we can look for evidence of liability that proves the driver hit you. What might prove to be the most valuable piece of evidence could come from your helmet: the footage your helmet cam captured before your wreck, assuming you have a helmet cam.
Motorcycle Accident Statute of Limitations
Need to file a motorcycle accident claim in New York? Do not wait too long. The state uses a three-year statute of limitations that begins on the day of your wreck. If that time limit expires, then you essentially have no possible way to pursue damages at all.
