A Crash With A Vulnerable Vehicle: Injuries Are Often Severe
A motorcyclist who gets hit by a car or another vehicle is often injured far more severely than others involved in the crash. That’s because motorcyclists don’t have the same protection as drivers of cars and trucks. Much of the impact of the crash gets absorbed by the rider’s body instead of the vehicle. Severe injuries like traumatic brain injuries, broken bones and burns are not uncommon consequences of such a collision. Medical bills resulting from motorcycle accidents can quickly become overwhelming.
Depending on the injuries, you or a loved one could need expensive long-term care. At Chopra & Nocerino, LLP, our attorneys can take on your case in New York and help you secure the maximum possible compensation to help you pay for medical bills as well as lost wages and other costs associated with the accident.
Insurance companies are rarely eager to pay the full amount claimants deserve after a motorcycle injury. You don’t have to go through this alone. Call our law firm at 855-NYC-HURT (855-692-4878) for a free initial consultation.
Inattentive Drivers Are Not Looking For Motorcycles
It is true that motorcycles are more difficult to see on the road than larger vehicles, especially in the evening when light conditions are low. But that does not mean that car and truck drivers are off the hook when they hit motorcyclists. Drivers have a responsibility to share the road with other drivers and motorcycle riders alike. This obligation applies in all circumstances, including:
- When a motorcyclist is turning left across lanes of traffic
- When a motorcyclist is merging into traffic
- When a motorcyclist is passing another vehicle
Settlement Or Litigation
Where possible, we attempt to settle cases outside of court. But should we need to litigate your case, we will take the time to build compelling evidence from medical, biomechanical and other experts who can help reconstruct what happened.
