It is an unfortunate reality that accidents involving motorcycles are typically caused by automobile or truck drivers failing to see motorcycles even when their view is unobstructed. These crashes often result in devastating injuries to motorcyclists due to the minimal physical protection that a motorcycle affords. Because motorcyclists’ rights are not protected under No-Fault Insurance, it is extremely important that victims of motorcycle accidents seek experienced legal assistance in order to avoid the financial burdens of missing work and having to pay massive medical bills. Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP® of New York City, NY has a dedicated team of motorcycle accident lawyers who are committed to protecting your rights and helping you through the legal process.

 

Unlike victims of car accidents, New York State law does not require victims of motorcycle accidents to prove a “serious injury” in order to bring a claim against the responsible party. This means that regardless of the severity of your injury, you may be entitled to reimbursement of medical expenses and lost wages as well as compensation for your pain and suffering. 

Additionally, if you are the victim of a hit and run, or if you were struck by a driver who was either uninsured or under-insured, New York State law allows you to make a claim against your own insurance policy. Furthermore, if you were a pedestrian or an occupant of a motorcycle owned by someone else at the time of your injury, you may be entitled to additional insurance coverage under any insurance policy applicable to a motor vehicle that you or a resident relative of your household owns. Determining the proper coverage is crucial to ensuring that you get the best possible outcome from your motorcycle accident case. Even the smallest mistake in this complex process can cost you the money that you are entitled to.
