Who's to Blame?

Motorcycle Accident Causes

Motorcycle accidents can happen for a variety of reasons, including driver negligence, faulty motorcycle parts, unsafe road conditions, or even a combination of any of these things. Some of the most common types of driver negligence we see include:

  • Tailing motorcyclists too closely
  • Opening car doors into oncoming bikers
  • Left-turn accidents
  • Speeding
  • Unsafe merges or lane changing
  • Lane splitting
  • Texting while driving/driving while distracted
  • Driving while under the influence
  • Driving while fatigued

 

That said, unsafe road conditions, such as slick roads due to snow/ice/leaves after rain, as well as potholes, cracks, negligent signage and more can also all cause motorcycle accidents. We’ve even seen cases where motorcycle part designers/manufacturers are held accountable for accidents caused by faulty parts. If you need a motorcycle accident lawyer who can review your case, determine the liable party, and fight for your rightful compensation, you’ve come to the right place. Goldstein & Greco is here to help.

Injuries Sustained in Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists are, naturally, more exposed to their surroundings than motorists in passenger vehicles. In general, the only protection motorcyclists are offered is the helmet on their heads. Though wearing a helmet can save a person’s life, motorcyclists often still sustain some very gruesome injuries when they’re involved in an accident. Just some of the most common motorcycle injuries we see are as follows:

  • Broken bones
  • Road rash
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Scarring
  • Emotional trauma

If you sustained any of these injuries in your accident and you believe the accident wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to financial compensation.

It was a very long and sometimes difficult process, but in the end it all came as a great relief, as if a heavy burden had been lifted from my back.

Your Initial Consultation

An accident of any kind is devastating, but fortunately, most accidents leave a trail of evidence behind that a skilled personal injury lawyer can use to prove a future personal injury claim. If possible, you should do what you can to document your accident and then bring all relevant information to your initial consultation with our firm. This can include:

  • Pictures or videos of your accident
  • Witness statements/contact information
  • Your insurance information
  • The other party’s insurance information
  • Any record of correspondence you may have had with the other party’s insurance company
  • Any history you have had with filing personal injury claims in the past
  • Medical documentation and bills associated with your injuries

File Today

The moment you’re injured in an accident, the clock starts ticking on your personal injury claim. New York State has a statute of limitations in place, which means that if you wait too long to bring a claim, you’ll likely permanently lose your right to do so. This is why it’s paramount that you retain the services of a competent personal injury lawyer as soon after the date of your accident as you can.
