Our Long Island Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Can Be Your Advocates

Every day, the news is filled with reports of serious motorcycle accidents on Long Island roadways. Motorists don’t understand how to share the road and drive safely with bikers. Unfortunately for the motorcycle rider, these accidents can result in grievous injuries or death. In most motorcycle accidents, the driver of the car or truck is found to be at fault. Many car drivers make surprise left-hand turns in front of motorcycles coming from the other direction. In other cases, car drivers are simply distracted.

The Challenges Motorcyclists Face When Seeking Compensation

Motorcycle accidents are unlike other motor vehicle accidents in many ways. The first thing to know is that motorcycles are NOT covered by no-fault insurance. Therefore, if you do decide you want to ride, make sure that you have health insurance. If you don’t and you are in an accident, you may wind up with tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills on top of dealing with your injuries. Dealing with insurmountable medical bills while losing time from work is a nightmare scenario.

Second, people are biased against motorcyclists, even when the car driver was clearly at fault. You need an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer on your side to tell your side of the story.

One positive aspect of motorcycle accident cases is that motorcyclists are are not bound by New York’s serious injury threshold law, because you don’t have no-fault coverage. This is a good thing, because it means that even if you suffer a relatively minor injury, we don’t have to worry about getting your case dismissed.

Injuries From A Motorcycle Accident Can Be Severe

Motorcyclists are often much more seriously injured than occupants of cars and trucks. Some of the injuries my motorcycle accident clients have suffered are:

  • Severe laceration with glass embedded in the soft tissues resulting in infection
  • Fracture of scapula with surgical revision
  • Calcaneus fractures with multiple surgical revisions
  • Compound tibia/fibula spiral fractures with surgical revisions
  • Fractured wrist with surgical revision
  • Severe road rash and lacerations
  • De-gloving injury
  • Severe leg bruising
