Hudson Valley Motorcycle Accidents

Have you been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by another driver's negligence? If so, our Hudson Valley personal injury attorneys have the resources needed to successfully guide you through the entirety of your case. In the state of New York, motorcycles are a common means of transportation because they enable the rider to avoid traffic on the highways and streets. They are also, however, very dangerous, especially when other vehicle drivers act in a negligent manner.

Motorcycle riders are more likely to suffer catastrophic injuries than drivers of larger automobiles when they are involved in an accident because of their vulnerability. Motorcycles riders are exposed to the impact that occurs between their body and pavement when involved in an accident. In addition, motorcycles are not as stable as other vehicles and can be overlooked by distracted drivers. These are just a few of the reasons why motorcycle riders are more susceptible to injuries when involved in an accident.

Prepared to Handle Complex Motorcycle Accident Cases

At Michael R. Varble & Associates, P.C., our team knows the complexity that accompanies motorcycle accident cases. In New York, the insurance and liability rules are different for motorcycles than they are for cars. For most automobiles, the no-fault law applies, but motorcycles are not considered motor vehicles in this context. Motorcycles are exempt from this law, and therefore, injured motorcyclists are not entitled to medical and lost wage benefits.

Injured motorcycle riders can, however, bring a claim against the offending driver for minor to major injuries. Our Hudson Valley motorcycle accident lawyers understand the laws pertaining to pursuing compensation and can develop a case strategy that reflects your best interests. We can make it our goal to ensure that you obtain the maximum compensation you deserve. During a free case evaluation, we can determine the most appropriate course of action.
