New York City Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable for Damages

Many New York residents enjoy riding motorcycles on a frequent basis, both for recreational and commuting purposes. Riders get to experience the freedom that a motorcycle provides on the open road and thrifty consumers enjoy the savings at the gas pump. However, riding a motorcycle is still an inherently dangerous activity that can result in serious accidents.

Been In an Accident?

The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. has provided a list of everything you'll need to know! Get Information

The reality is that motorcycle riders have very little protection — especially when compared to a passenger vehicle. Motorcyclists do not have the frame of a vehicle to protect them in case of a collision, nor safety features such as seat belts or airbags. Aside from helmets and other minimal gear, motorcyclists have no real protection against a larger vehicle.

Call on The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. if you’ve been injured. Our New York City motorcycle accident lawyers are just a phone call away!

What to Do after a Motorcycle Accident in New York

When a motorcycle accident occurs that results injuries to you or a loved one, you may not be sure where to turn first. Medical bills can pile up quickly and you may be unable to work and support your family while you recover from your injuries. If this is the case, and your injuries result from an accident caused by the negligence of another, then you may have a valid claim to seek compensation for damages you've suffered.

What do you need to do after your accident?

  • Get medical attention as soon as possible
  • If you’re able to, take pictures of the accident
  • Exchange information with the other party and witnesses
  • Gather compelling evidence to prove negligence and fault

Who Is at Fault for Your Accident?

Common claims stemming from motorcycle accidents may involve:

  • Other drivers who cause accidents
  • Motorcycle manufacturers who build defective motorcycles
  • Parts manufacturers who produce defective parts
  • Distributors who market and distribute defective motorcycles and parts

Establishing Negligence in Your Case

In order to establish a negligence claim in a motorcycle accident case, you must first establish that the responsible party owed you a duty of reasonable care. All drivers on the roadway owe other drivers, passengers, and pedestrians a duty to drive safely and reasonably look out for others’ safety while driving. Likewise, a vehicle or parts manufacturer has a duty to ensure the safety of consumers.

An injured party also must show that the party responsible for the accident breached that duty of care, that the responsible party caused the injuries at issue, and that the party actually sustained the injuries or losses. The good news is that the NYC motorcycle accident attorneys at The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C. can assist you in bringing such a claim.
