Brooklyn Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Do you rely on a motorcycle to get from point A to point B in Brooklyn, NY? If so, it is critical that you remain vigilant on the road. Drivers and occupants of other vehicles have steel frames protecting them. You do not. 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 through no fault of your own. Review your case with a Brooklyn motorcycle accident attorney at Shulman & Hill if this ever happens. We will determine how to best pursue the compensation to which you are likely entitled.

 

What You Need to Know about Brooklyn Motorcycle Accidents

Did you know that if you are a motorcyclist, should you ever be involved in an accident, your odds of dying are 27 times greater than they would be if you were in another common type of vehicle when the accident occurred? Unfortunately, even if you survive a motorcycle accident, there is a high likelihood that you will be left with relatively serious injuries. It is also worth noting that Brooklyn motorcycle accidents are more common than motorcycle accidents in any other NYC borough.

 

Why Do Brooklyn Motorcycle Accidents Happen?

The potential causes of Brooklyn motorcycle accidents are wide-ranging. The following are merely 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 thus, 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 head injury, even if you are wearing a helmet. Such injuries can potentially have long-term impacts on cognition, memory, mood, and more.
  • Broken bones: It is not uncommon for motorcycle accident victims to sustain bone breaks and/or fractures.
  • Spinal cord injuries: A spinal cord injury can be very devastating and may even leave a victim permanently paralyzed.

 

How Victims Struggle in the Aftermath of Brooklyn Motorcycle Accidents

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 Brooklyn motorcycle accident. It is not unlikely your injuries will leave you unable to return to work, at least temporarily. This could prevent you from bringing home a paycheck.

Additionally, not all struggles and losses you may face in the aftermath of an accident will be strictly financial in nature. For example, after your accident, you may have to endure pain, emotional trauma, and more.

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

 

How a Motorcycle Accident Law Firm in Brooklyn Helps

There is a good chance your Brooklyn motorcycle accident occurred because another driver was negligent. In New York State, drivers must have Personal Injury Protection insurance to cover their (and, if applicable, their passengers’) losses after an accident. Luckily, this insurance typically also kicks in when they injure motorcyclists.

That means you can pursue the compensation to which you are entitled by filing a claim against the insurance of another driver. Insurance companies tend to lowball claimants in these circumstances. Hiring a personal injury lawyer in Brooklyn to represent you will thus improve your odds of securing the full amount of compensation to which you are entitled. Specifically, our Brooklyn motorcycle accident lawyers will help in the following key ways:

 

Determining fair compensation

Unless you have experience filing a personal injury claim, you likely do not know how much your claim is worth. That means you do not know how much you should ask for from an insurer.

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. 

Do not settle for less than you deserve. Our personal injury lawyers in Brooklyn will account for all your losses to determine how much money you’re owed.

 

Negotiating

An insurer will typically still try to convince you to accept a low offer when you file a claim, even if you have accurately calculated how much money you are entitled to. However, when you have representation from an attorney, you will have an expert on your side who can present evidence showing why you deserve the payout you’re asking for.

 

Holding all negligent parties accountable

In New York, you can file a claim or lawsuit against virtually any party whose negligence caused your accident. This does not merely include other drivers. It can also include vehicle designers, vehicle manufacturers, government agencies responsible for road maintenance, and more. We will investigate your accident thoroughly, identifying all those responsible for compensating you.
