Motorcyclists involved in accidents tend to be more seriously injured than drivers in cars and other vehicles, since their bike is considerably smaller and has less structural protection. According to statistics,however, the fault of the accident usually lies with the other driver.
When you are injured in a motorcycle accident that is another driver's fault, you have the right to sue and get compensated for your injuries, medical costs and pain and suffering. It is important to note that as a New York State motorcyclist, your rights are different from drivers of cars. Motorcyclists are not covered by no-fault insurance, so if you are injured you must use medical insurance and then try to collect compensation through insurance coverage, a settlement or lawsuit. Unlike car drivers--who are bound by strict no-fault limitations--you can sue and collect pain and suffering for any injury.
An experienced motorcycle accident lawyer can help you fully understand your rights and work to get the full compensation you need and deserve for your:
- Medical bills
- Related expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
