New York Motorcycle Accident Attorney
While drivers and passengers in a car are shielded by the sturdy frame of the vehicle surrounding them, a seat belt, and an airbag, motorcyclists are merely protected by protective clothing and a motorcycle helmet. This lack of protection greatly enhances the chance for a serious injury or fatality in a motorcycle crash. At Tolmage, Peskin, Harris & Falick, our attorneys pursue full compensation for clients who have been injured or have lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident in New York.
Contact our New York motorcycle accident lawyer for experienced representation in any of the five boroughs of New York City, including Manhattan, Staten Island, Queens, Brooklyn, and the Bronx.
NY City Bike Injury Lawyer
Largely, motorcycle accidents are caused by other negligent or inattentive drivers on the road. Through meticulous investigation, we discover various forms of negligence. Motorcycle accidents often happen because:
- A driver cuts off a motorcycle when changing lanes
- A driver follows the motorcycle too closely
- A driver fails to observe proper lane distance
- Defective tires cause a tire blowout
- A driver runs a red light or stop sign
Product defects and negligent driving can cause spinouts or rear end collisions, or can force a motorcyclist off the road. At Tolmage, Peskin, Harris & Falick, we are skilled at helping motorcycle accident victims who have suffered serious injuries, such as brain and spinal cord injuries.
