Brooklyn Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycles are a thrilling way to travel. However, it is crucial to exercise caution when riding one, since the protection is not as strong as one would have in a car or truck. Drivers and occupants of other vehicles have steel frames protecting them, while motorcyclists do not.

If you rely daily on a motorcycle to travel throughout Brooklyn, it is critical that you remain vigilant on the road. If you are involved in an accident, your chances of being seriously injured are greater than they might otherwise be.

However, even if you are a responsible motorcyclist, you can potentially still be harmed in an accident. Contact a Brooklyn motorcycle accident attorney at Shulman & Hill if this ever happens. We can review your case for free and help determine how to best pursue the compensation to which you are likely entitled.

What You Need to Know About Brooklyn Motorcycle Accidents

Brooklyn motorcycle accidents are more common than motorcycle accidents in any other New York City borough.

If you are a motorcyclist, the odds that you will be involved in a fatal accident are 27 times greater than they would be if you were in another type of vehicle. Unfortunately, even if you survive a motorcycle accident, there is a high likelihood that you will be left with relatively serious injuries.

What Causes Brooklyn Motorcycle Accidents?

The potential causes of Brooklyn motorcycle accidents are wide-ranging. The following are just a few noteworthy examples:

  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving, which is likely causing more accidents in the age of smartphones
  • Speeding
  • Hazardous road conditions
  • Vehicle defects
  • Drivers failing to see motorcyclists. Motorcycles are smaller than most other vehicles on the road, and drivers sometimes overlook them.

Brooklyn Motorcycle Accidents: Potential Injuries

Injuries you might sustain in a Brooklyn motorcycle accident can also come in a range of forms, such as:

  • Road rash: A motorcycle accident can throw you from your vehicle. When this happens, your skin may drag across the road, resulting in a painful road rash.
  • Head injuries: You must make a point of wearing your helmet at all times when riding a motorcycle. However, a major accident can result in a head injury even if you are wearing a helmet. Such injuries can potentially have long-term impacts on cognition, memory, and emotional regulation.
  • Broken bones: It is not uncommon for motorcycle accident victims to sustain broken bones and/or fractures.
  • Spinal cord injuries: A spinal cord injury can be devastating and may even leave a victim permanently paralyzed.

The Aftermath of a Brooklyn Motorcycle Accident: Financial Losses

Treating injuries sustained in a Brooklyn motorcycle accident is often costly. There is a good chance that you will be left with expensive medical bills if you are ever involved in one.

You should also consider the nature of your job when imagining the financial burden you might face after a motorcycle accident. It is possible that your injuries will prevent you from returning to work, at least temporarily. This could prevent you from receiving a paycheck and covering your bills.

You can potentially seek compensation for such losses. However, your chances of reaching a fair settlement will be much greater if you work with a personal injury law firm in Brooklyn.

How a Motorcycle Accident Law Firm in Brooklyn Can Help

There is a good chance your Brooklyn motorcycle accident occurred because another driver was negligent. In the case of a motorcycle accident, your sole recourse may be to seek compensation from negligent parties. This is because motorcyclists are excluded from coverage for No-Fault benefits in New York.

If you are injured, you may be able to pursue compensation by filing a claim against the insurance of another driver. Insurance companies may attempt to pay a lesser amount than what you may be entitled to, which is why hiring a personal injury lawyer to represent you can improve your odds of securing the full amount of compensation. Our Brooklyn motorcycle accident lawyers can help in the following key ways:

Pursuing Fair Compensation

Unless you have experience filing a personal injury claim, you will likely not know when an insurer is trying to undervalue your claim. This highlights a key reason insurers prefer that claimants work with them directly. If you do not have a lawyer on your side, you may not realize that you are entitled to more compensation than an insurer is offering. Our personal injury lawyers in Brooklyn will account for all your losses to help you identify low settlement offers.

Holding All Negligent Parties Accountable

In New York, you are able to file a claim or lawsuit against any party whose negligence caused your accident. This does not merely include other drivers involved in the accident. It can also include vehicle manufacturers, government agencies responsible for road maintenance, and more. Our personal injury attorneys can investigate your case thoroughly, identifying all those who may be responsible for compensating you.
