Common causes of motorcycle accidents are:
Whether you ride your motorcycle for enjoyment or as a cost-effective means of transportation, you deserve proper compensation if a negligent driver causes you injury.
In New York State, motorcyclists hurt in a crash face having their potential recovery of damages reduced by the amount they are considered at fault. Motorcyclists can improve their chances of avoiding accidents and of winning adequate compensation for injuries by taking such precautions as:
While all bikers should follow safety precautions, the negligence of other drivers on the road is not under your control. If you suffer an injury, contact a motorcycle accident lawyer at our firm.
While you should maintain adequate insurance for potential bodily injury and property damage, claims are not paid automatically. You may suffer damages that your insurance policy does not cover, such as compensation for pain and suffering. And your insurance company may dispute the amount of even a covered claim. As skilled personal injury attorneys, we can negotiate with your insurer and pursue claims against negligent drivers and their insurers for damages beyond what your policy will cover.
Sustaining a motorcycle accident injury can cause economic loss in addition to physical and emotional pain. Contact Goldberg Sager & Associates online or call us at 718-514-9516 for a free consultation with an experienced Brooklyn personal injury attorney.
