What You Need to Know About New York Motorcycle Accident Cases

Goldstein and Bashner | New York Motorcycle Acciden

So, you’re a motorcyclist and you’ve been in an accident. Now what? If you have serious injuries, you want to the most compensation for your injuries. It is important to understand that New York’s No-fault law is not the same for car and motorcycle accidents.

For car drivers, no-fault will cover some of your accident related expenses, such as hospital bills and lost wages, but makes it difficult for these victims to sue for pain and suffering. In order to go forward with one of these lawsuits, any accident related injuries must be “severe.” No-fault essentially defines severe”damages” as a fracture, loss or limitation of a body part, the death of a fetus, or a death.

For motorcycle accident victims, the case is extremely different. Because no-fault sees motorcycles as inherently dangerous, no-fault insurance does not cover motorcyclists. Therefore, motorcyclists must use their private insurance (if available) in order to pay for any accident related expenses. However, unlike car drivers, motorcyclists have the right to file a lawsuit without having to meet a “severe” injury threshold. This makes motorcycle accident lawsuits much easier to put forward and get payment.

It’s important for motorcyclists to truly understand how they are covered, and what steps they should take after an accident has taken place. Our New York and Long Island motorcycle accident attorneys have helped numerous accident victims throughout the area. If you have sustained injuries in a motorcycle accident, please contact our New York or Long Island personal injury law offices.

Goldstein and Bashner When it comes to the capacity to generate profound upheaval and anguish in the lives of those involved, almost nothing rivals a serious personal injury event stemming from the negligence of others. The physical suffering, financial pressures and family strain that so often result from such circumstances can seem insurmountable unless justice and accountability can be obtained from those responsible.
