Important Steps To Take After A Motorcycle Accident in NYC

 

If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident in New York, there are important next steps to take to ensure that you can get coverage for medical bills, lost wages, emotional trauma, physical trauma, and other financial setbacks that your injury directly contributed to. Oftentimes, injuries can take time to fully manifest and so it is important to call an experienced and dedicated motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible after your motorcycle accident to ensure your best chance of a financial recovery. New York motorcycle accidents have the potential to cause serious injuries like broken bones, brain damage, spinal cord injury, concussions, lacerations, loss of mobility, and death.

Legal counsel from New York motorcycle accident attorneys is imperative to ensuring that you obtain the best possible financial recovery because it is in the best interest of insurance companies to challenge who caused the accident, question your credibility, and minimize the seriousness of your injury so that their net payout is less. Without proper and skilled legal representation, you could walk away with far less than you deserve and worse, you could end up having to pay for medical bills and other financial losses caused by the accident. Our experienced New York motorcycle accident legal team routinely does the following for our New York motorcycle accident clients:

  • Conduct a comprehensive and thorough investigation of your motorcycle accident. This is inclusive of canvassing the site for available cameras that may have captured your accident (we have a team of video experts)
  • Collect witness testimony and other corroborating evidence
  • Build a strong legal case that supports your claim and efforts to obtain a financial recovery
  • Prove who is truly at fault
  • Effectively advocate on your behalf with insurance company representatives
  • Properly evaluate and present your injuries with our team of medical experts to ensure that you receive the maximum compensation for your motorcycle accident claim.

Motorcycle Accident Experts That Advocate For You Against Insurance Companies

When a motorcycle accident occurs, an insurance company reviews your claim to determine if they are going to pay and if so, how much that amount is. In New York, depending on the type of accident you have been involved in, there may be a maximum recovery amount. Motorcycle accident attorneys at Giordano Law Offices will help to advise you on the recovery amount that you can expect depending on your injuries and the types of vehicles that were involved in your motor vehicle crash.

When you communicate with insurance companies, it is important to do so with legal counsel as insurance companies have experienced and skilled lawyers that work to protect their financial interests which typically means a lesser payout for you. If you have been involved in a car accident, you deserve skilled lawyers that protect your interests! Giordano Law Offices never charges you a penny for an initial consult and all motorcycle accident cases are done on a contingency fee basis which means that you don’t pay us anything unless we are successful and obtain a recovery for you.

Giordano Law Offices attorneys aggressively advocate on your behalf and seek the maximum compensation for past and future accident-related medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other forms of financial relief.

Frequently Asked Questions: New York Motorcycle Crashes

What is the statute of limitations for motorcycle accidents in New York?

Statutes of limitations govern the time limits for filing a lawsuit. These limitation periods are very important, missing the statute of limitations means you are forever prohibited from bringing a lawsuit. Always make sure to consult a competent attorney about your particular case and how long you have to bring it.  While every case is different, in New York, you generally have 3 years from the date of an accident or negligence to file a claim against a private party. If your crash involved a government entity, you typically only have 90 days to file a notice of claim and thereafter, you have 1 year and 90 days from the date of the accident to commence the action. It is very important to consult our dedicated motorcycle accident legal staff because in each case there are exceptions.

How does the insurance system work in New York for motorcycle accidents?

Motorcycle riders are not covered under New York Insurance Law, also known as the No-Fault Law and do not receive no-fault insurance benefits in the State of New York. This does not mean that motorcyclists may not have a lawsuit when they are injured due to another party’s negligence that contributed to causing the accident. With the help of an experienced New York accident attorney, the victim can file a claim against the party responsible for the crash, seeking damages for both economic and non-economic losses (pain and suffering).

How long can I expect my case to take before I can potentially get a financial recovery?

Every case is unique, when you call our motorcycle accident lawyers, an experienced attorney will listen to the details of your case and from there, we can advise you how long your case will take to litigate.

Giordano Law Offices attorneys are award-winning trial attorneys that are prepared to take your case to trial if necessary. While most cases are settled prior to going to trial, our firm is always prepared to aggressively litigate your case in the courtroom.

How much will my motorcycle accident case cost me?

Giordano Law Offices never charges you for an initial consultation and all motorcycle accident cases are done on a contingency fee basis which means you do not pay us a penny unless we are successful and get a recovery for you.
