Our motorcycle accident lawyers in New York are skilled in handling all types of motorcycle accident cases, including those stemming from the following:
Limited visibility accidents: Most motorcycle accidents occur due to a driver’s inattention or inability to recognize a motorcycle in dense traffic. As a result, the driver may have failed to yield, violating the motorcyclist’s right of way.
Rear-end crashes: Most commonly, rear-end motorcycle accidents in New York result when the driver misjudges distance or fails to notice the rider. Even minor rear-end accidents involving motorcycles can be fatal if the rider is forced into oncoming traffic.
Single-bike accidents: A single-bike accident occurs when the rider hits something in the road or “wipes out.” A single bike accident typically results from road hazards or faulty equipment.
Other types of New York motorcycle accidents include the following: broadside collisions; unsafe lane changing accidents; head-on collisions; left turn collisions and intersection accidents.
In every motorcycle accident case, it will be necessary for the attorney to investigate the type of motorcycle crash to determine its cause. Establishing the cause of the crash will help identify the at-fault party, allowing the injured victim an opportunity to file a lawsuit against that individual or entity. Liability in New York motorcycle accidents commonly rests with the other driver, manufacturer of the bike or the local government.
