Hit and run results in dead motorcyclist

motorcycle-accident-hit-and-run
Riding a motorcycle is one of the more exhilarating modes of transportation. There is nothing quite like being on two wheels with nothing keeping you from enjoying the world around you. But of course, those things that make riding a motorcycle so fun also make it extremely dangerous.

On top of that, it is even scarier to know that other motorists on the road tend to disregard those riding on two wheels. Some do not even like motorcyclists and others could care less. This type of attitude leads to drivers not sharing the road with motorcycles, which leads to unfortunate incidents and injuries.

The worst possible outcome of all happened recently to a motorcyclist riding in Brooklyn. The rider became a victim of a hit and run, as he was hit by a car while trying to change lanes. He lost control and ended up on the pavement. He was pronounced dead at the hospital and police are now investigating the hit and run.

Motorcycle accidents are scary to witness and even scarier to be a part of. In this unfortunate incident, the result was death — the worst of many debilitating possible injuries. Other common injuries that stem from motorcycle accidents include road rash, head injuries, leg injuries, spinal cord injuries, wrist injuries and even injuries that may require amputation.
On top of those possible severe injuries, motorcyclists are already viewed in a different light than other motorists on the road. This means that it can be tough during the legal proceedings that may follow a motorcycle accident to get the compensation deserved and the fair shake that should be warranted.

So when it comes to seeking legal counsel following a motorcycle collision it is not only essential you find an experienced lawyer, but one with motorcycle experience specifically.

If in the state of New York, you do not have to look any further than Proner & Proner, home of motorcycle injury attorney Mitchell Proner.

While over 25 years of experience and many multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements achieved for injured motorcyclists speaks for itself, it is the fact that Mr. Proner is a motorcyclist himself that separates him from the rest. On top of that, he once suffered injuries due to a motorcycle accident, making him not only sympathetic to your needs but empathetic as well.

So if you or a loved one has been injured or involved in a motorcycle accident you should contact Proner & Proner today. Call 856-351-5335 for a consultation and begin discussing your legal options.
