Motorcycle accident lawyers in Yonkers, NY

Motorcycle injuries are very serious for a number of reasons:

  • The body can experience direct impact with pavement or other vehicles since the motorcycle rider is completely exposed.

  • Motorcycles are extremely light compared to other vehicles and therefore can experience a greater impact from smaller accidents.

  • Motorcycles only have two wheels and are therefore not as stable as other vehicles.

How do motorcycle accidents typically occur in Yonkers?

When you're on a motorcycle, it's usually the other drivers you need to pay attention to since being on a motorcycle typically means you're the lightest motorist on the road. ​The most common causes of motorcycle accidents are:

  • Reckless driving or speeding

  • Drivers not obeying common rules such as stopping at stop signs, obeying yield signs and/or traffic signals

  • Distracted driving such as using the phone, eating, drinking, and more

  • Drivers using drugs or alcohol

 

After a motorcycle accident the rider only has two options: An injury claim or a lawsuit. With an injury claim you will have to file an insurance claim and wait for them to do an investigation. After the investigation is over they will offer you a financial settlement. At this time you will typically sign a release agreeing not to sue the driver in court. In this case you are agreeing with the financial settlement and giving up your rights to get any additional compensation. If the injury claim fails to deliver the compensation you deserve then we recommend filing a personal injury lawsuit. Give us a call today at (914) 428-3313 if you've been injured in a motorcycle accident in Yonkers and need help.
