Fatal Motorcycle Accident Lawyer NY


Nationally Recognized Personal Injury and Leading Motorcycle Accident Attorney Helps Clients in NYC

To save your life as a motorcyclist, prominent nationwide motorcycle injury law firm Proner & Proner urges you to practice defensive driving even before you mount your bike.

Stay away from drunk driving altogether. This means you should not ride your motorcycle under the influence of alcohol, and you should avoid mingling with traffic in areas where you have reason to believe that excessive consumption of alcohol is underway — such as at a motorcycle rally.
Avoid speeding, and stay away from cars whose drivers are speeding. A few minutes saved by speeding are not worth the risk to your well-being and survival.

Injured Due To A Motorcycle Accident And Have Questions? We Can Help, Tell Us What Happened.

According to statistics compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), fatal motor vehicle accidents decreased slightly between 1994 and 2008, from 36,254 in 1994 to 34,172 in 2008. During that same timeframe, however, fatal motorcycle accidents increased from 2,320 per year to 5,312 per year. In other words, fatal motorcycle accidents made up approximately 1/7 of all fatal motor vehicle accidents in 2008.

These statistics confirm what we have observed anecdotally through our Bronx motorcycle accident law practice. If a loved one was among the more than 5,000 motorcyclists killed this year, we hope that you draw a bit of comfort knowing that your family is not alone in your loss.
