In 2011, there were over 81,000 motorcyclists injured in accidents. To no surprise, injuries sustained by motorcyclists are often more severe than that of an occupant in a vehicle, due to their lack of protection. Despite this statistic, motorcyclists’ rights are not protected under No-Fault Insurance. Without proper legal protection, this could result in large medical bills and missed work going uncompensated for. Our Plattsburgh expert motorcycle accident lawyers at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, LLP are dedicated to protecting you and your rights to a full and uninhibited recovery.
Under New York State law, a motorcyclist can file a claim against the responsible party for pain and suffering that resulted from an accident, without proving it resulted in a “serious injury.” Contrary to No-Fault insurance laws, this law greatly helps many motorcyclists claim compensation and recover the losses resulting from the accident.
Even if the responsible party is uninsured or under-insured, NYS law allows one to make a claim against your own motorcycle insurance policy. But what if you were injured while a pedestrian or occupant of a motorcycle you do not own? Additional insurance coverage is likely available to you through any insurance policy applicable to a vehicle you or a relative of your household owns.
