The injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents are especially severe due to the lack of what motorcyclists call a cage that protects the rider. Riding a motorcycle can be quite exhilarating, but unfortunately, because of the traffic and road conditions in the New York area, riding a motorcycle can be highly dangerous. Unlike a typical car accident, a motorcycle rider is not required to demonstrate that their injuries are serious under the law, however motorcycle accident injuries are almost always severe.
It takes a motorcyclist to understand that drivers just don’t pay enough attention to motorcyclists, and that they sometimes pull out or turn into motorcyclists’ path, making it impossible for the rider to avoid a collision.
Many injured riders I have represented after an accident were surprised to learn that that most motorcycle insurance policies do not include No Fault or Medical Pay or lost wages of any kind, so it is even more important that an injured rider have an attorney who is experienced with handling motorcycle accidents, as opposed to regular car accidents.
We also strongly recommend that motorcycle riders purchase sufficient uninsured/underinsured coverage with their carrier to protect them against what is often very severe injuries that often happen when a motorcycle is in a collision with an automobile.
