How to Recover Financial Compensation Following a Motorcycle Accident in New York

With the fall season approaching, people are taking their motorcycles out to enjoy the last bit of this year’s warm weather. Though motorcycles are a fun, quick, and stylish means of transportation, they can also be quite dangerous. This is why most people injured in motorcycle accidents seek financial compensation to help cover the cost of their medical bills, in-home care, and more. If you find yourself in this situation, here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of motorcycle accidents?

Motorcycle accidents can be caused by several different factors, including poor weather conditions, negligent road design, and more. However, the most common cause of motorcycle accidents is driver negligence.

What is driver negligence?

The roads are dangerous enough, even when everybody is following the rules. Unfortunately, people still insist on driving recklessly, and others are injured as a result. Some examples of negligent driving behavior are as follows:

  • Eating while driving
  • Smoking while driving
  • Texting while driving
  • Driving while fatigued
  • Navigating directions while driving
  • Failing to check blind spots
  • Unsafely changing lanes
  • Ignoring traffic lights or signs
  • Disregarding other rules of the road

How do I recover compensation following a New York motorcycle accident?

To recover financial compensation, you must first prove that you were injured due to another party’s negligence. Fortunately, we are happy to help you do so. An experienced attorney will recover security camera footage of your accident, pictures of the accident’s aftermath, police reports detailing the accident as it happened, witness statements verifying your claim, and more. After an accident, it is always in your best interest to seek medical attention. A physician will treat your injuries accordingly and provide you with medical documentation that you may use to prove your claim.

What is the statute of limitations in New York?

The statute of limitations is essentially the timeframe you have from the date of your accident to file a personal injury claim. In New York, the statute of limitations is three years. If you fail to file your lawsuit within three years of the date of your accident, you will most likely be denied your right to sue. Do not wait.
