Motorcycle Accident Injury Claims

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. 

Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Common types of motorcycle accident injuries include the following:

  • Road rash, where skin and tissue are scraped away by the road’s surface. Road rash can lead to infections and often requires skin grafts.   
  • Spinal cord injuries, which may cause partial or total paralysis. Motorcyclists may suffer other neck and back injuries that can cause disability and long-term pain as well. 
  • Traumatic brain injuries. Many motorcyclists sustain this type of injury even when wearing a helmet and it can result in permanent damage, memory loss, problems with memory, and cognitive deficits.
  • Broken or fractured bones, deep lacerations, and severed or dismembered limbs.

Financial Struggles After A Motorcycle Crash

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. 

Wrongful Death

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.
