Bronx Motorcycle accident lawyers

Motorcycle accidents are often catastrophic, whether they’re in the Bronx or not. Bikers who aren’t paying attention to the road are dangerous enough, but other drivers in their vehicles put the lives of motorcycle drivers in jeopardy every time they’re on the road. When a car strikes a motorcycle or causes a motorcycle to crash, those on the bike are usually injured far worse than anyone else. Even the use of a helmet doesn’t always save the lives of those injured on bikes, and that leaves family members to grieve the loss of their loved ones. If you or someone you love is injured on a motorcycle, it’s time to call a Bronx motorcycle attorney to discuss your legal options.

Causes of Bronx Motorcycle Accidents

– Inclement weather conditions
– Road construction
– Drunk driving
– Distracted drivers
– Drivers who fail to use turn signals
– Drivers who don’t stop for signs or lights
– Drivers who pass illegally
– Speeding cars
– Disobeying traffic laws

These are just a few of the most common reasons behind any motorcycle accident. Many vehicle drivers fail to see motorcycles in their mirrors and blind spots, which puts everyone’s lives at risk on the road. When a driver causes a motorcycle to get into an accident, the driver is at risk. If the driver of the bike survives the accident, he or she might be disoriented, upset, confused, and at a loss of what to do next. The first step is to seek medical attention. Rarely do the victims of motorcycle accidents walk away without injury. Many of those injuries are unseen, which makes them even more dangerous.

Injuries Associated with Bronx Motorcycle Accidents

No two motorcycle accidents are the same, which means anyone can suffer from injury. Many injuries are common to these types of accidents, which means bike riders are more susceptible to these injuries than others when they’re on their bikes:

– Brain injuries
– Spinal cord injuries
– Amputation
– Broken bones
– Road rash
– Burns
– Disfigurement
– Scars
– Eye injuries

When someone is injured on a bike, their life is in danger. Medical attention is almost always needed, and most accident victims require ample time in the hospital. Those with catastrophic injuries are unable to leave the hospital for months, and some of those injuries require life-long medical treatment and rehabilitation.

Bronx Motorcycle Accident Damages

Motorcycle accident attorneys in the Bronx investigate accidents when victims call. We take a look at photos from the scene, we talk to witnesses, and we examine police reports. We look to see what might have caused the accident, and we work to prove that it was caused by the negligence of someone else. The process can take some time, but the damages are worth the wait.

– Medical bills
– Therapy
– Long-term care
– Wrongful death
– Funeral expenses
– Lost wages

When a victim is unable to work throughout the recovery process or unable to return to work when their injuries change their life forever, the entire financial future of a victim and their family changes. It’s not something anyone can handle easily, and it’s terrifying for families who lose an income as the medical bills and monthly expenses continue to accrue.

Accident victims who were injured on their motorcycles don’t have very long to file a lawsuit against the people who cause their accident. New York state law mandates all motorcycle accident victims have a statute of limitations in which to file a lawsuit against the person responsible for the accident. Waiting too long to contact an attorney means accident victims forfeit their rights to any compensation for damages caused. The time immediately following an accident is confusing, but an attorney can help you get through this time while taking care of the legalities of the accident during your recovery process.

Now is the time to contact an experienced motorcycle accident attorney in the Bronx. Your future was changed by someone who wasn’t paying attention when they were driving, and they should be responsible for the damages their negligence caused in your life. Let us help you seek the compensation you deserve to help with the future.
