I was in a motorcycle accident in New York. What do I need to know?

New York law differs for motorcycle and car drivers, so it is important for motorcyclists to know their rights. Unlike car drivers, no-fault doesn't cover motorcyclists in New York, so the driver must use private insurance (if available) for medical and hospital expenses. However, unlike car drivers, a motorcycle rider can successfully sue for his injuries, damages, and pain and suffering, even in cases where an injury isn't necessarily "severe," or debilitating.
