New York and Long Island Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Because motorcycles do not provide the same level of protection as cars or trucks, the majority of motorcycle riders typically suffer from multiple catastrophic injuries when an accident occurs. Furthermore, because motorcycles are not equipped with seatbelts, airbags, protective steal frames, and other types of safety equipment commonly found in cars and trucks, many motorcycle accident victims sustain injuries so severe that they are often left permanently scarred, disfigured, or disabled. When a motorcycle rider becomes injured or disabled, not only may he or she no longer be able to work or earn money, but his or her overall quality of life decreases.
If you were involved in a motorcycle accident in New York or Long Island, and sustained an injury, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, pain, suffering, medical bills, and newfound financial hardship. However, in order to recover damages in a personal injury lawsuit, you must prove that the accident was directly caused by another person’s negligence. An experienced New York motorcycle accident lawyer can help you recover the compensation you deserve by evaluating you case, filing the appropriate paperwork, and representing you in settlement hearings or in court.
At Loscalzo & Loscalzo, we have 35 years of experience representing motorcycle accident victims in New York and Long Island, and understand what needs to be done to win your case and successfully recover damages. We can help you take legal action whether you are filing a claim against a negligent driver, government, or motorcycle manufacturer.
You can file a motorcycle accident claim against another driver if you can prove that his or her negligent actions caused the accident that resulted in your injury. Common forms of driver negligence include:
- DUI or DWI
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- Failure to follow traffic laws, signs, and signals
- Running a red light
- Making illegal turns
- Failing to stop at a stop sign
You can also file personal injury lawsuit against the city or state government. The government has a responsibility to ensure that all roadways are safe and free of hazards (such as potholes, obstructed streets, etc), and that all road signs and traffic signals are working properly and in full view for all drivers to see. If the government fails to maintain roadways, traffic signals, or traffic signs, and it results in a motorcycle accident, it is liable for damages.
In addition, you can also file a lawsuit against the motorcycle manufacturer if your accident was caused by a mechanical malfunction or design defect.
