New York Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Steadfast Legal Assistance for Injured Riders
Motorcycle accidents are rarely “minor.” Most motorcyclists are seriously injured when struck by another motorist. The legal guidance and representation you obtain for a motorcycle accident claim need to be just as serious.
In New York, motorcyclists know they can trust The Russell Friedman Law Group, LLP and our motorcycle accident attorneys to make the most of their claims and lawsuits.
For decades, we have been standing up for people just like you when insurance companies have tried to minimize their injuries and deny their damages. To say that we know the ins and outs of catastrophic injury claims like those often associated with motorcycle accidents is an understatement.
Massive Damages You Shouldn’t Pay Yourself
Motorcycle accidents often cause brain injuries, spinal cord damage, broken bones, and permanent scarring. The aftermath of these injuries is enormous, and the damages related to them are, too. We are ready to fight for every penny of compensation you deserve, no matter how much that might be.
You could receive compensation to help pay for:
- Emergency medical care
- Rehabilitative therapy, possibly for years
- Lost wages and reduced income
- Property repairs
- Pain and suffering
If you lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, then we can help you file a wrongful death claim, which is like a personal injury claim but filed for someone who has passed away.
Damages in a wrongful death claim will be different, such as funeral costs and the wages the deceased would have earned had they never been hit by a negligent driver. You don’t need to worry yourself about those details, though, when we are working on your case for you.
Who is Liable for Your Accident?
Determining liability is the foundation of a motorcycle accident claim. We need to use tangible and convincing evidence to show how you were not at fault for the crash, despite what the other driver might say.
Footage from your helmet cam, for example, can be an incredibly helpful piece of proof that shows the other driver cut you off or slammed into you. Police reports and eyewitness statements are also great sources of evidence if there are any available.
We can file claims against all types of liable parties, such as:
- Truck drivers
- And more
Our New York motorcycle accident attorneys have the know-how to uncover liability and prove it. We are ready to take your case to court, too, if that is what is necessary to pursue the best possible outcome and award.
What Should You Do After a Motorcycle Accident?
After a motorcycle accident, you need to take care of yourself, first and foremost. Get to safety, check on your injuries, and then check on other people. If anyone is seriously injured or there are pieces of a vehicle scattered in the road, then you should call 911.
While waiting for first responders, take pictures of the scene if you can. Documentation and statements captured immediately after a crash are often the most beneficial to an injury claim.
Should You Talk to Other Parties If They Contact You?
You should not talk to the other party or their insurance company after being in a motorcycle accident. They will want to get you to say something that increases your liability. Instead, speak to an attorney and allow them to communicate with the other parties. Your motorcycle accident lawyer will know what to say during all communications.
How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Lawyer?
Hiring a New York motorcycle accident attorney from our firm effectively costs you nothing. We offer free consultations, so you can talk to us without paying anything. If we can work on your case, then we can discuss contingency fee agreements.
Under this payment policy, we do not get paid our attorney fees unless we end your case with a settlement or award paid to you. If your case does end in a success, then we are paid a percentage of your winnings, which means you never pay your attorneys more than you can afford. It is a simple system that eliminates virtually all risks when pursuing damages from the liable party.
We’re a client-centered, results-oriented firm. When you work with us, you can have confidence we’ll put your best interests at the forefront of your case – it’s that simple.
