Let’s face it – too often motorcycles on the road go unnoticed simply because of their small size and ability to hide in the blind spots of other drivers. This unnerving fact coupled with the lack of protection around a motorcyclist can lead to devastating injuries for the motorcyclist. If you have been injured while riding, contact our motorcycle accident lawyers for your free consultation today.

 

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you must be aware that No-Fault insurance coverage does not always protect the rights of those who have been involved in a motorcycle accident.

 

Since motorcycle injuries are often very harmful to the occupants, huge medical bills and lost wages may go uncompensated if your legal rights are not fully protected. 

However, unlike injuries sustained in an automobile accident, New York State law does not require a motorcyclist to prove an injury was “serious” in order to make a claim against the responsible party. Also under this law, motorcyclists are eligible for reimbursement of their medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering caused by the accident.

 

If you were involved in a hit and run motorcycle accident, or if the driver of the vehicle that struck you was uninsured or under-insured, you can make a claim under your own insurance policy. Furthermore, if you were a pedestrian or an occupant of a motorcycle and sustained an injury from the accident, you may be entitled to make a claim against your own, or a resident relative’s insurance policy.
