Motorcycle Accident Attorneys in NYC

Helping injured bikers get back to living

With or without a helmet, motorcyclists are vulnerable. With very little protection between them and the road and other vehicles, it is not surprising that the risk of severe and fatal injuries is so high.

Lawyers at Barasch McGarry Salzman & Penson understand the dangers bikers face when other motorists and those responsible for the roads are negligent.  Our personal injury law firm protects riders’ interests when that negligence causes harm.

Causes of motorcycle crashes

Sometimes, careless riders cause motorcycle accidents. However our attorneys have seen case after case in which crashes were caused by the other driver’s failure to be aware of surroundings and to respect the motorcycle’s rights on the road.  We help obtain compensation for victims of accidents as result of:

  • Drivers failing to see a motorcycle
  • Motorists driving in the biker’s lane
  • Drivers running red lights or speeding
  • Motorists failing to yield the right of way
  • Defective motorcycle components
  • Defective roadway design and conditions
  • Poor signage

Motorcyclists have a right to the road

So therefore, a motorcyclist also has certain responsibilities. In New York, motorcyclists must have a valid motorcycle license and wear a helmet and eye protection when riding. They must drive with their headlights on at all times. Of utmost importance — bikers must adhere to all laws governing motor vehicle operation, including those related to speed limits, lane changing and yielding.
