Why Is It Important to Hire An Attorney After a Motorcycle Accident?

Did you know that the risk of a fatal crash is 35 times higher per mile traveled in a motorcycle, compared to a car?

Motorcycle accidents tend to be more severe. They don’t offer the same protection that a car or truck offers – there is no metal enclosure, seatbelts, or airbags to keep you safe. That’s why for those who have been involved in a motorcycle accident, it is critical that you discuss your case with an experienced attorney who can assist you in getting the compensation that you need for your injuries.

Reasons to Hire An Attorney:

  • Motorcycles do NOT qualify under the No-Fault Law. The insurance and liability laws for motorcycles are very different from that of cars in New York State. In NY, motorcyclists are not entitled to medical and lost wage benefits under the No-Fault Law. Since this compensation is not guaranteed, it is important to speak with an attorney to discuss what kind of compensation you can receive. You may be able to bring a claim against the other part for your injuries.
  • We will negotiate for you. We will negotiate with the insurance companies to ensure maximum compensation. Attorneys will have the experience and knowhow to negotiate and avoid the tactics an adjuster might throw at you.
  • You’ll save time. The legal process can be complicated. It’s important for you to focus on your health. By hiring a motorcycle attorney, you will have the time to take care of your injuries while still knowing that someone is fighting for you to receive the compensation you deserve.
