New York motorcycle accident statistics show that motorcycle accidents typically account for a disproportionately high number of catastrophic traffic accidents resulting in brain injury, broken bones, paralysis, and death. Tragically, the vast majority of motorcycle accidents in New York State are unavoidable. The personal injury lawyers at Flint & Granich understand the unique aspects of motorcycle accident cases, including:
New York State vehicle laws pertaining to motorcyclists
Roadway design as it relates to motorcyclists
Motorcycle design and manufacturing issues
In most motorcycle-motor vehicle accidents, a negligent or inattentive automobile driver is at fault. Some of the common types of collisions include:
A driver turning directly in front of a motorcyclist
A driver entering the street from a driveway or parking spot and pulls out into traffic in front of the motorcyclists
A driver's failure to yield at an intersection or running a stop sign or red light
A driver's inattention while driving past a motorcyclist
A driver's failure to look both ways when resuming travel after stopping at a stop sign
A driver impaired by drugs or alcohol
