Long Island Attorneys Fighting For Injured Motorcyclists And Their Families
Motorcycle accidents happen for a variety of reasons. The driver of a car may never have failed to see the motorcyclist just before a collision. Maybe aftermarket equipment on a custom bike caused it to be unstable on a highway. Maybe a motorcyclist was intoxicated, causing an accident that injured a passenger. In any case, victims of motorcycle accidents often suffer extremely serious injuries.
Who Should Be Held Accountable For Motorcycle Accidents?
The attorneys at our Mineola law firm, the Law Offices of Louis D. Stober, Jr., L.L.C., help clients throughout Long Island, New York City and the Hudson Valley area identify sources of compensation for injuries suffered in motorcycle accidents. Regardless of negligence or fault, if a member of your family has been seriously injured or killed in a bike crash, there may be several sources of compensation available for medical expenses, lost wages or other losses, including wrongful death.
A motor vehicle insurance policy belonging to you or someone in your household may cover the motorcycle operator and passenger’s injuries, even if the bike is not listed on the policy. You may have claims against other policies or negligent parties. If you would like to speak with a member of our firm about your injury claim, please contact our office to arrange a free consultation with a lawyer.
Claims For Catastrophic And Serious Injuries
Due to the vulnerability of a motorcycle operator or passenger, whether or not the accident victim was wearing a helmet, there are likely to be catastrophic or fatal injuries and insurance adjusters or a jury will need to answer difficult questions:
- How much financial compensation should be awarded to a young man who will spend his life in a wheelchair after his spinal cord was severed?
- A broken knee or ankle may not initially seem serious, but may require months or years of therapy, and result in early arthritis. How do you know?
- A traumatic brain injury may end a professional career, or the victim may require a lifetime of nursing care — what is the loss?
- What is the value of the loss of emotional and economic support of a loved one who died in a fatal accident?
Our lawyers call on medical and economic experts to calculate the full value of a client’s loss and provide compelling testimony. It is our goal that every client at our firm recovers maximum compensation for their loss.
