Seeking Compensation for Your Motorcycle Crash
Motorcycle collisions can cause serious, devastating, and permanent injuries to the motorcyclists involved and any passengers they had on the bike. Motorcycles lack many of the key safety features of other vehicles, making even relatively minor crashes more severe.
According to the New York State Department of Health, an average of 166 motorcyclists die annually from their motorcycle crash injuries in New York. Furthermore, an average of 16 people receives treatment in hospitals daily for injuries suffered in a motorcycle collision.
While New York requires no-fault auto insurance coverage for most motorists, it is not required for motorcycles. Motorcyclists can “sue from first dollar loss,” according to the New York Department of Financial Services (DFS). This means that you can pursue a fault-based claim for your collision no matter the severity of your injuries or the value of your case. However, you will need to prove that another party is liable for your injuries to secure a financial recovery. Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. may be able to help with this process.

Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. May Seek Compensation in Your Case
A motorcycle accident lawyer serving Lynbrook from Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. may be able to file an insurance claim based on the liability policy of the driver who caused your collision. Unlike many car crash cases, you do not need to show you qualify under New York Insurance Law (ISC) §5102(d) to pursue pain and suffering damages in a motorcycle crash case.
Because motorcyclists are not required to have Personal Injury Protection (PIP) policies, you can file a fault-based claim as long as there is evidence to show the other motorist caused your collision and injuries. Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. investigates motorcycle crashes for our clients, working with accident reconstruction and medical experts as needed to produce evidence of liability and the value of our clients’ damages.
We also support clients throughout this process by handling all communication with the insurance companies, preparing documents, and addressing any concerns they have. This allows our clients to continue their treatment and physical recovery while we focus on their financial recovery.
To learn more about how Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. helps motorcyclists overcome their crash injuries and losses and to discuss your case, call our team today at (631) 451-7900.
Financial Recovery Following a Motorcycle Crash
Because motorcycle crash claims are all fault-based, we can seek non-economic damages in any case regardless of the severity of our client’s injuries. While many people focus on the costs of medical care or the losses related to time missed at work, the intangible losses can add up quickly, too. In some cases, these intangible losses can be equal to or significantly more than the financial expenses and losses experienced.
Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. works to put a fair value on each collision case before filing a claim. This allows us to negotiate with the insurer representing the at-fault driver with a strong understanding of how much our client needs to cover their current and future collision-related damages.
It is difficult to tell you what the value of your case might be without investigating the details surrounding the crash. We can discuss what a fair settlement might look like with you after we have documentation supporting the value of your case. This could include:
- Medical bills
- Documentation showing lost wages and benefits
- Medical records and medical expert testimony
- Receipts for related expenses
- Proof of permanent injuries and future care needs
- Any available documentation of pain, suffering, and distress

The Statute of Limitations in Motorcycle Collision Cases
In the most straightforward cases, we can often reach an out-of-court settlement with the insurance company and avoid taking a motorcycle crash case to trial. However, sometimes it is necessary to seek justice for our clients via a lawsuit. Under New York Civil Practice Law & Rules (CVP) §214, you generally have three years from the date the injuries occurred to file a personal injury lawsuit.
There may be exceptions to this rule that could significantly shorten how long we have to take action. This includes if we need to sue a municipality. We also need time to investigate your collision. Don’t delay as you may miss your filing deadline if you do. Contact Rosenberg & Gluck, L.L.P. as soon as your collision injuries allow, and we can go to work right away if we decide to work together.
