No matter your scenario, Proner & Proner can help you seek payment for the medical costs, wage losses, and other costs resulting from your motorcycle accident in New York City, Brooklyn, Queens, or the Bronx. Call or email us today for the legal support you need.
Motorcycles are commonly perceived as the motor vehicle that is more unsafe on the road, and a big reason for this is that a motorcycle is more likely to be in a car driver’s blind spot due to the size of the bike. Because of the size of the vehicle and the clear lack of protection or cushioning found in most cars and trucks on the road, motorcycle accident victims are much more likely to experience catastrophic injuries after a crash, and many people lose their lives.
The most common injuries that attorneys at Proner & Proner see in NYC motorcycle accidents include:
For motorcycle accidents in New York, medical costs are far from the only thing you can get financial compensation for from the insurance company. With the right legal representation and proper documentation and evidence gathering, you may be able to get compensation for anything that directly resulted from the motorcycle accident and that caused financial or personal difficulties.
Possible areas of financial compensation in an injury settlement include:
Regardless of the type of injuries sustained, if the other party is liable for your New York motorcycle accident, you may be legally allowed to file a claim and recover damages to cover medical bills and other expenses resulting from your injuries. Severe injuries drastically affect one’s daily life and future, and the attorneys at Proner & Proner in New York City know this all too well.
