Single-Motorcycle Accidents

Single-Vehicle Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Approximately one quarter of all motorcycle crashes are single-vehicle motorcycle accidents. Throughout the United States, bikers suffer serious injuries due to their own mistakes or circumstances beyond their control. The lead motorcycle accident injury lawyer at our New York City law firm, Mitchell Proner, along with our legal team, represents clients nationwide who have sustained serious injuries in single-vehicle accidents. Bikers who are involved in a single-vehicle motorcycle accident should never automatically assume that they have no recourse for compensation simply because only they were involved in the accident. The negligence of others can lead to single-vehicle accidents, and sometimes a motorcyclist’s insurance company attempts to avoid paying full coverage for damages and injuries.

The attorneys at Proner & Proner have the expertise and experience to handle any motorcycle accident case, anywhere in the United States, no matter how complex. To speak with a motorcycle accident injury lawyer about your case, contact the New York law firm at Proner & Proner today.

Causes of Single-Vehicle Motorcycle Accidents

During the last decade, more than 10,000 people were killed and more than 250,000 people were injured in single-vehicle motorcycle accidents. Nationwide, rider negligence accounted for many of these unfortunate incidents, with speeding being a predominant factor. Many riders die or suffer significant injury after colliding with a fixed object, and abrupt braking and steering maneuvers are responsible for nearly a quarter of all single-vehicle accidents. However, road hazards that should have been repaired or removed have also caused many riders to crash, and defective motorcycle parts have caused catastrophic motorcycle accidents resulting in serious injury and wrongful death. Along with skilled experts, an experienced motorcycle accident injury lawyer from our firm will fully investigate the circumstances of a motorcycle accident and determine where liability lies. Mitchell Proner and our legal team will diligently work to locate the responsible party or parties involved in a single-vehicle motorcycle accident and obtain compensation for the rider or the rider’s loved ones.

Insurance Companies and Single-Vehicle Motorcycle Accidents

When a rider is involved in a single-vehicle motorcycle accident anywhere in the United States and sustains injury, the rider’s insurance company often urges a quick settlement. Similarly, when clear negligence on the part of another person causes a single-vehicle motorcycle accident, that person’s insurance company may try to offer a small sum to quickly settle the matter. Anyone who suffers injury in a motorcycle accident, regardless of fault, should contact a motorcycle accident injury lawyer at the New York City-based law firm at Proner & Proner before agreeing to any insurance company’s offer. Often, the full extent of a rider’s injuries does not become apparent until well after the accident. A person injured in a single-vehicle motorcycle accident can face extensive rehabilitative costs and other expenses for months and even years after the accident. Mitchell Proner and our entire legal team have extensive experience dealing with insurance companies in motorcycle accident cases. We will work tirelessly to help you achieve the full measure of compensation to which you are entitled.
