Deadly Motorcycle Crashes in New York

motorcycle-accident-lawyerIn a recent Queens vehicle crash involving a motorcycle, the rider died after a minivan turned left into the rider’s path, causing a collision on Rock away Turnpike between the motorcycle and the minivan. Unfortunately, a motorcycle crash can be especially dangerous for the rider – more so than for the drivers of other vehicles involved in the incident. The motorcycle rider is often more exposed and might sustain serious bodily injuries in a crash. In some instances, crashes result in death.

After a fatal motorcycle crash, the victim’s family may have a personal injury claim. If successful, a lawsuit can result in compensation for the family’s loss and suffering. However, a lawsuit generally requires preparation, investigation of the evidence, and an understanding of the law. An experienced New York personal injury lawyer can assess the circumstances and give an objective opinion about your legal options.

Liability for a Motorcycle Crash

If you or a family member has been in a motorcycle crash, your immediate concerns will understandably focus on the healing process. After the recovery, however, your thoughts might turn to liability. You might want to know who is responsible for the crash. You may feel that answers will allow you to move on.

In a motorcycle crash, many factors could affect each person’s liability and determine the outcome of a lawsuit. Factors such as speed, negligent driving, or the influence of drugs or alcohol could all have contributed to a crash. If insurance companies are involved, you may need to negotiate with them. You should also understand the personal injury laws in your state –  educate yourself by speaking with a New York personal injury lawyer right away.
