If a negligent driver caused your motorcycle crash, we can fight to make them pay. Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P., has a history of helping personal injury victims on Long Island achieve successful settlements and trial verdicts. Our motorcycle accident lawyers serving Floral Park can help you recover expenses related to your injuries and more.
You Should Not Have to Pay For Injuries You Did Not Cause
We can help you hold negligent drivers financially responsible for your medical treatment and other motorcycle collision-related expenses. You could win awards for emergency treatment, diagnostic testing, surgical procedures, and hospitalizations.
You may also seek compensation for future, necessary health care needs, such as physical therapy, cognitive rehabilitation, and long-term nursing services.
If your injuries prevent you from working, our motorcycle accident lawyers serving Floral Park can help you pursue compensation for your lost wages. If you suffered a permanent injury that leaves you unable to work or return to your previous employment, you could win awards for your loss of future earning potential. You may also be eligible for funds to pay for vocational rehabilitation.
If you suffered a severe or permanent injury, you could be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. These damages provide compensation to victims for their physical pain, mental anguish, emotional suffering, and an overall reduction in quality of life due to their injuries.
Wrongful Death Damages
If your loved one died from injuries they sustained in a motorcycle crash, you may be able to seek damages on their behalf. Our attorneys can help you seek compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering caused by their final injury, and funeral and burial costs.
You may also win awards for the loss of your family member’s wages, benefits, services, and support. However, New York does not allow survivors to pursue compensation for their own pain and suffering.
Ways Our Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Can Serve Floral Park Motorists
We want to assist you and your family through this challenging and stressful time. We know how important achieving compensation is to you, so we make getting you the most advantageous settlement or verdict our top priority. Our motorcycle collision lawyers can:
Prove Liability For Your Crash
According to the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), about two-thirds of two-vehicle collisions involving motorcycles are caused by another vehicle violating the motorcycle’s right-of-way. If another driver caused your Floral Park crash, we will fight to prove it.
Our firm partners with nationally recognized experts in various fields, including crash reconstruction. We can use witness statements, accident reports, photographs, video footage, and expert opinions to show that the at-fault driver is responsible.
Calculate Your Damages
We want to make sure you are fairly compensated. We can prove your financial losses using your medical bills and wage records. We can help you determine an adequate amount for your pain and suffering damages. We will work to get you the highest amount possible for your crash.
Handle Your Insurance Claim
The last thing you need to distract you from your recovery is paperwork and deadlines. We can take care of filing your insurance claim and submitting the necessary documentation.
We will communicate with the insurance company and represent you during negotiations. Along the way, we will provide you with updates so that you are always aware of your claim or lawsuit’s status.
Take Your Case to Trial
We will not let insurance companies deny you the payment you deserve. If we cannot settle your case through insurance, we can represent you at trial. Generally, you must take legal action for personal injuries within three years of your crash, according to CVP §214.
In general, you must file a wrongful death lawsuit within two years of the time of your loved one’s passing, according to EPT §5-4.1. There are some exceptions to these limits, such as suing a government entity, that could shorten your window of time.
Motorcycle Collisions Have a High Rate of Injuries And Fatalities
Many motorists enjoy the thrill of driving a motorcycle, but motorcycle riding can be dangerous. Because there is no vehicle cab to protect motorcyclists, they are much more exposed if a crash occurs. This puts them at higher risk of suffering severe injuries, head injuries, and death when they collide with a larger, enclosed vehicle.
A collision may throw a motorcyclist from their vehicle. High side crashes can be particularly catastrophic for the rider. The rider may also suffer:
- Severe cuts, scrapes, and bruises, and skin injuries referred to as “road rash”
- Broken bones
- Severed limbs
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Internal organ damage and/or bleeding
