Advocating For Injured Bikers
As a motorcycle owner and rider, you take extra safety precautions when on the road. Unfortunately, accidents still happen for a number of reasons. If you get into an accident while on your bike, you face serious injuries and some uncertainties. New York state law handles motorcycle accidents differently than a standard motor vehicle accident. Unless a motorcyclist has paid for medical benefits coverage on his motorcycle, a motorcyclist does not have his medical benefits and lost wages covered as would a driver of a motor vehicle who was involved in a motor vehicle accident.
At Rosenthal Kooshoian & Lennon LLP, we immediately work with you to determine what sources of medical benefits are available and what types of disability insurance are available to cover any lost wages as a result of a motor vehicle accident.
There is no requirement that a motorcyclist sustains a “serious injury” in order to obtain a recovery in a motorcycle action. There is no threshold requirement, and as such, almost any injury at all as a result of a motorcycle accident, no matter how slight, is potentially viable.
