NY Motorcycle Accident
The NY Motorcycle Accident Lawyer team at Stephen Bilkis & Associates has experience with the high number of serious traffic injuries that involve motorcycles. A crash on a motorcycle can cause the rider and their passenger to sustain road rash, broken bones, significant brain injury, back and other types of spinal injury that can cause paralysis, neck injury and even, in some cases, wrongful death. It can't be stressed enough that when people are involved in a motorcycle accident, the results can be catastrophic.The Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
While there is no primary cause of motorcycle accidents, a large portion are actually due to the negligence of another driver. Our NY Motorcycle Accident Lawyer staff knows that the reason these types of accidents happen so frequently is because the motorcyclist is harder to see by drivers of other vehicles, and that riders lack the heavy protection that automobile drivers enjoy. Because of this fact, people who ride motorcycles are in greater danger of getting seriously injured by the carelessness of other drivers, imperfect roads, severe weather and slick road surfaces.
It should also be noted that motorcycle accidents can be the result of faulty components or other equipment. In the event that this happens, you should consider contacting a NY Personal Injury Lawyer to ascertain whether you should pursue a product liability claim against the maker or the distributor of the component.
Our legal team understands how severe an injury due to a motorcycle accident can be. That's why our lawyers will work hard to ensure that those who are suffering from an injury get fairly compensated.Stats on Motorcycle Accidents
