Being involved in a motorcycle accident is most often serious and traumatic. Motorcyclists have minimal protection against bodily injury when involved in a collision. When you or a member of your family has been involved in a motorcycle accident you should immediately seek the advice of an attorney to conduct a prompt investigation and collect evidence.
The long-term consequences of motorcycle accident injuries will not always be immediately evident. Serious injuries such as whiplash, concussions, fractures, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and even severe bruising sustained in a motorcycle crash can have permanent and lasting effects.
New York laws require certain documents and applications to be filed within a certain time after the accident. Filling out these documents incorrectly or missing the deadline for their submission can result in your being denied “No-Fault” benefits, medical payments coverage, reimbursement for your vehicle and property damage, and even denial of payment for your lost wages.
You may be tempted to handle your motorcycle accident case on your own. However, hiring an experienced attorney or law firm will greatly increase your chances of obtaining a significantly greater recovery.
