Obtaining Compensation After a Motorcycle Accident in NYC

Statistics show that more than 50% of motorcycle accidents are due to collisions with another at-fault vehicle. Many of these crashes are preventable caused by inattention or recklessness. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident caused by another driver’s negligence, you might be entitled to compensation.

Unfortunately, an at-fault driver’s insurance company may attempt to deny your injuries or pay less than expected on your personal injury claim. Our law firm ensures your rights are protected from unscrupulous insurance claims adjusters. We fight to obtain the maximum compensation allowed based on your injuries and the circumstances of your case.

Why Motorcycle Accidents Are So Prevalent

According to a comprehensive study on motorcycle safety in the city, lack of visibility contributes to most motorcycle injury crashes. Other vehicles on the road are often unaware of nearby motorcycles, making it hazardous for motorcyclists and putting them at a disproportionate risk for serious injury or death. 

Other accidents are caused by drivers of other vehicles attempting to overtake a motorcycle’s right of way or failing to look before making a turn. 

Finally, besides offering less protection to their operators, motorcycles are inherently less stable than a four-wheel vehicle, making collisions extremely dangerous at any speed.

New York City Motorcycle Accident Statistics

The New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) estimates that motorcyclists accounted for 14% of traffic fatalities, despite motorcycles only accounting for 2% of the registered vehicles. 

Additional statistics from the NYC DOT indicate that:

  • 43% of fatal motorcycle accidents involved a rider who was not properly licensed;
  • 56% of motorcycle rider fatalities were under 35 years old;
  • Males accounted for nearly 100% of motorcycle accident fatalities;
  • Motorcycle injury crashes were more likely to occur in the afternoon or evenings; and
  • Injury crashes involving motorcycles usually involve at least one other vehicle.

These staggering statistics indicate that motorcyclists are at a disproportionate risk of death or serious injury compared with other vehicle occupants. Both motorcyclists and other drivers need to be vigilant on the road and be on the lookout for each other.

Damages in a Motorcycle Accident Case

If you are seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, you are likely entitled to pursue a legal claim against an at-fault party. It is important to consult with an attorney prior to signing anything from an insurance representative or agreeing to a settlement. Early settlement offers typically do not include damages for future treatment, pain and suffering, or other less tangible losses.

Damages in a motorcycle accident case may include compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Future care and treatment
  • Rehabilitation
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Loss of consortium
  • Pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death

Facts + Statistics: Motorcycle crashes

Motorcycles are by their nature far less crashworthy than closed vehicles. They are also less visible to other drivers and pedestrians and less stable than four-wheel vehicles. Operating a motorcycle requires a different combination of physical and mental skills than those used in driving four-wheel vehicles. Motorcyclists and their passengers are more vulnerable to the hazards of weather and road conditions than drivers in closed vehicles.

In 2017, 5,172 motorcyclists died in motorcycle crashes, down 3 percent from 5,337 in 2017, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In 2017, motorcyclists were 27 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a crash per vehicle mile traveled.

Note: statistics on fatal motorcycle crashes are also available from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety
