What Makes Motorcycle Accidents So Dangerous?

Motorcycles are fun to ride, and offer an experience unlike any other type of motor vehicle. Unfortunately, however, they are also dangerous, and when motorcycle accidents occur, riders are often severely injured as a result. Please continue reading and reach out to a dedicated NYC personal injury lawyer from the Law Office of Richard M. Kenny to learn more about motorcycle accidents, what makes them so dangerous, and how our legal team can help if you’ve been wrongfully injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What makes motorcycle accidents more dangerous than other types of auto accidents?

A wide range of factors contribute to making motorcycle accidents more dangerous, and potentially devastating, than other types of auto accidents. Just some of those are as follows:

  • Limited Protection: Motorcyclists lack the protective shell of a car, making them more vulnerable to direct impact and road hazards.
  • Exposure to Elements: Riders are exposed to weather conditions, increasing the risk of injury due to rain, wind, and extreme temperatures.
  • Lack of Seat Belts and Airbags: Motorcycles don’t have safety features like seat belts and airbags, which can mitigate injuries in car accidents.
  • Balance and Stability: Two-wheeled vehicles are inherently less stable than four-wheeled ones, leading to a higher likelihood of losing control.
  • Road Hazards: Smaller road imperfections or debris can pose greater risks to motorcycles, leading to accidents.
  • Higher Risk of Ejection: Riders can be thrown from the motorcycle upon impact, resulting in severe injuries.

How do I know if I’m entitled to compensation for a motorcycle accident?

To recover compensation for injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident, you, along with your personal injury lawyer, will have to gather and present evidence that proves you were injured as a direct result of another party’s negligence. Some of the most useful types of evidence in personal injury claims can include police reports, medical documents, witness statements, photographs of the accident/its aftermath, surveillance footage of the accident, and more.

If you believe you may have a valid personal injury claim, it is paramount that you retain the services of a seasoned NYC personal injury lawyer sooner, rather than later, as the statute of limitations for most personal injury claims in New York is three years, but in some cases, it can be much shorter. Our firm is here to help you today. All you need to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
