About Multi-Vehicle Motorcycle Accidents in New York, NY

About three-quarters of motorcycle accidents across the nation occur as the result of a collision with another vehicle. A majority of these crashes take place because a vehicle turns left or pulls out in front of a motorcyclist, and most result in serious injury or death to the rider. Throughout his years as a prominent motorcycle accident lawyer based in New York City, NY, Mitchell Proner has seen the devastation caused by serious collisions. Often the motorcyclist must spend weeks, months, and even years in physical rehabilitation. The motorcyclist’s family suffers the anguish of seeing their loved one hurt, or, if the accident is fatal, the family must bear the incredible pain of saying goodbye forever to their beloved family member.

In these accidents, medical and funeral expenses and the costs of daily living can bring on an overwhelming financial burden for surviving family members. Our legal team at Proner & Proner in NYC represents victims and families of victims of motorcycle accidents nationally and seeks the full and just compensation they deserve.

Preventing Motorcycle Accidents

To reduce the number of accidents that result in injury or death, our New York City motorcycle accident lawyer offers some recommendations to motorcyclists everywhere. The single-most significant thing motorcycle riders can do to improve their chances on the road is reduce speed. Speed has been cited as the most common factor in multi-vehicle collisions where the rider is at fault. Perhaps ironically, speed is less a factor in the occurrence of motorcycle accidents in large metropolises than it is in rural areas. However, no matter the location, a motorcyclist can greatly improve chances of a safe ride simply by slowing down. Motorcyclists should also wear helmets. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) says that riders can reduce the possibility of becoming involved in a fatal accident by more than a third by wearing a regulation helmet. Finally, riders must be sure that insurance is complete and up-to-date. Motorcyclists who carry little or no insurance do so at their own peril.

When a Motorcycle Accident Occurs in NYC

Despite the best efforts to maintain safety and operate the motorcycle safely, accidents do occur. Unfortunately, the exposed nature of a motorcycle means that the rider has a much greater chance of significant injury. Motorcyclists are 32 times more likely than an automobile passenger to die in an accident and six times as likely to be injured. If you or a loved has been involved in a motorcycle accident and has suffered injuries, a lawyer with expertise in motorcycle accident litigation is essential to protect your rights. The lead motorcycle accident lawyer at our New York City firm, Mitchell Proner, has extensive knowledge and experience in motorcycle accident cases and has won significant compensation for clients across the country. Our motorcycle accident lawyer strongly advises against settling quickly with an insurance company after an accident. It is in the best interest of an insurance company to offer a quick settlement because insurers know that motorcycle injuries often require long-term care, and a quick payment limits their expenses.
