We Hold Negligent Drivers Accountable
According to New York Consolidated Laws (§ 1146), all licensed New York drivers are expected to exercise due care to avoid collisions with other vehicles and pedestrians. If the other driver did not take reasonable measures to avoid the accident and injured you, it is your legal right to seek compensation for damages.
Proving liability in a motorcycle accident case involves establishing, with supporting facts, the following:
- The at-fault driver had a legal obligation to avoid the accident.
- The at-fault driver did not avoid the accident for some reason, such as speeding, running a red light, or texting while driving.
- The accident caused you to suffer bodily injury.
- These injuries led to damages in the form of medical treatment, lost salary, mental anguish, and other losses.
Our Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Find Evidence To Prove Liability
Some people are reluctant to call a motorcycle accident lawyer because they believe that the defendant and his insurance carrier will make filing a claim simple, easy and fair That is most often not the case. They may make it simple and easy but it is unlikely they will be fair. The insurance carrier will most often try to pay you nothing or as little as possible.
In sharp contrast to the self-interested insurance companies, when you retain Friedman & Simon, L.L.P., as your lawyers, you are teaming up with lawyers whose sole purpose is to advocate for the best possible results for you. That is why you should talk to a lawyer with Friedman & Simon, L.L.P. before you speak with an insurance adjuster.
We investigate each motorcycle accident case to find evidence that proves the other driver acted negligently and caused the accident. This evidence includes:
- Photos of the accident scene, damaged cars, debris, and skid marks
- Witness reports
- Accident and police reports
- Explanation of your injuries from your medical provider
- Accident reconstruction when necessary
Your first phone call after getting medical care should be to a Floral Park motorcycle accident lawyer. For a free consultation, call (516) 932-0400.
Our Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Fight for the Compensation You Deserve
Motorcyclists have a disadvantage when it comes to other vehicles. Motorcycles offer virtually no protection during a collision, although wearing a helmet reduces the risk of traumatic brain injury (or TBI, as defined by the Mayo Clinic) and loss of life. Traumatic brain injury and other catastrophic injuries are often accompanied by extensive, long-term medical care. A motorcycle accident lawyer with Friedman & Simon, L.L.P., will work to get compensation for these and other expenses.
Some of the most common types of damages in a motorcycle accident claim are:
- Medical treatment including treatment to date and anticipated future treatment
- Lost wages
- Diminished income potential due to injuries
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished quality of life
- Emotional trauma
If you have lost a loved one due to wrongful death in a motorcycle accident, you have our condolences. Know that we will fight to collect the compensation your family needs in this difficult time as well as the justice your departed loved one deserves.
