Motorcyclists are aware that they face elevated accident and injury risks every time they take to the road. Because of that elevated risk, most riders drive defensively and exercise increased caution. Unfortunately, not all motorcycle accidents can be avoided and riders sustain injuries as a result.

Collecting compensation for motorcycle accident injury can be challenging. Insurance companies are often reluctant to provide fair compensation for motorcycle accidents because they are typically high dollar claims with significant medical expenses. You need an experienced Long Island motorcycle accident lawyer to protect your rights and to fight for the financial recovery that you deserve.
Common types of motorcycle accident injuries include the following:
Motorcycle injuries can cause serious financial hardship for injury victims and their families. Medical bills are often unmanageable and future medical expenses are usually anticipated as well. Temporary disability may cause lost wages from missed work. Permanent disability can have an even greater financial hardship for accident victims who are unable to or have a limited ability to work following the accident. Our law firm has seen firsthand the serious injuries that happen after motorcycle crashes. Our team of experienced motorcycle accident lawyers will seek compensation so you can cover medical expenses, time away from work, and emotional distress.
Motorcycle riders are three times more likely to die in an accident than passenger vehicle occupants. Wearing a helmet and other safety gear offers some protection, but even when all safety measures are taken, it is impossible to prevent all injuries. When a motorcyclist suffers fatal injuries, surviving family members might be entitled to compensation under a wrongful death claim.
