Motorcycle Accidents in the Bronx | Here’s What You Should Know

Motorcycle accidents are often the most devastating type of auto accident, as bikers stand very little chance against the size and weight of other motor vehicles. If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, you should strongly consider speaking with a knowledgeable Bronx personal injury attorney to learn more about these accidents and how our legal team can help if you’ve been hurt in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of motorcycle accidents?

Motorcycle accidents can occur for many different reasons. Sometimes, they are the result of poor road conditions. In other cases, they are the result of inclement weather conditions, such as heavy rain or snow. However, in most cases, they are the result of driver negligence. Unfortunately, many motorists fail to show bikers the respect they deserve and tail them too closely. In other cases, motorcyclists are injured in dooring accidents, or when drivers fail to check before merging or changing lanes. Of course, many of the other standard forms of negligence are also common culprits, including driving while intoxicated, speeding, and ignoring all other rules and regulations of the road.

What should I do if I am injured in a motorcycle accident?

If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, you should first call the police and ensure you receive immediate medical treatment. While you await their arrival, gather witness contact information, the other driver’s insurance information, and take pictures of the scene of the accident. Ensure that once you are treated, you receive medical documentation regarding your injuries and that you retain the services of a knowledgeable Bronx personal injury attorney as soon as you can.

How long will I have to sue for an injury in New York State?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York State is three years. This means that anyone who is injured in an auto accident will typically have three years from the date of their accident to sue the party responsible for their injuries. Waiting any longer than three years will most likely result in you losing your right to sue. Our firm is prepared to bring your personal injury claim today. All you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
