Factors To Consider In A Motorcycle Accident

It may sound like a tired phrase but it’s true: motorcyclists are at more risk on the road than other drivers. This is the case for two major reasons:

Motorcyclists are harder to see than larger vehicles.

Motorcycles may be difficult to see because of their size, but this does not mean the motorcyclist is always at fault in a crash. Other drivers are still responsible for staying aware of their surroundings and avoiding any distractions such as cellphone use.

Motorcyclists are less protected than other drivers.

Even with a helmet, a collision with a car will almost always do more damage to the motorcyclist than to a driver protected by the car’s exterior and multiple interior safety measures. This means it is especially important for bikers to get a full diagnosis of their injuries to determine the compensation they will need.

We Will Help You Recover

The attorneys of Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, have a reputation for aggressively defending clients in the courtroom. We have decades of experience getting the compensation that injured New York motorcyclists need to fully heal.

This compensation can cover:

  • Medical bills
  • Long-term medical needs
  • Lost wages due to lost work time
  • Property damages
  • Pain and suffering

Though you have probably suffered serious injuries or may have even lost a loved one, you do not have to fall to financial ruin.
