Motorcycle accidents often involve extremely violent collisions in which motorcyclists are crushed by other vehicles or thrown at high speeds from their motorcycles, often onto rough concrete or asphalt, which can cause serious or fatal injuries. It is not uncommon for injured motorcyclists to suffer broken bones, severe back or neck damage, burns, disfigurement, head trauma or spinal cord damage.
Tragically, many motorcycle accident victims suffer fatal injuries. Given the severe nature of injuries sustained by motorcyclists, such accident victims and the families of fatally injured victims require the best possible legal representation. In New York and New Jersey, motorcycle accident victims and their families may find the quality legal representation they require at Sullivan Papain Block McGrath & Cannavo P.C.
