Motorcycles are treated differently than other types of automobiles under New York’s insurance laws. Per New York Insurance Law (ISC) §5102(f), motorcycles are exempt from the state’s no-fault insurance system. This means that if you caused your motorcycle accident and got hurt, you may not be able to fall back on your own no-fault insurance coverage for compensation for your medical bills or lost wages.
However, if someone else caused your accident, you can pursue a case against them for compensation through a fault-based claim. Because motorcyclists are exempt from the no-fault system, they are not bound by New York’s restrictive “serious injury” threshold to pursue non-economic damages. In other words, a motorcyclist hurt in an accident caused by someone else can pursue compensation for pain and suffering without demonstrating that their injuries meet the normal requirements listed in New York Insurance Law §5102(d).

In New York, all plaintiffs must abide by the statute of limitations when filing their personal injury lawsuits. This statute dictates how long a plaintiff has to submit their case for litigation. If they fail to file their case on time, they might be barred from recovering compensation for their damages from the defendant.
If you are filing a lawsuit about your motorcycle collision, then according to New York Civil Practice Law & Rules (CVP) §214, you generally have three years from the date of the collision to file your case. However, there might be exceptions to this statutory deadline that could shorten the time frame pertaining to your case, such as a lawsuit against a municipality. You can refer to your legal team for more information about how the statute of limitations applies to your case.
