Motorcycle Accident Injuries
According to statistics, motorcycle accidents involving other vehicles have a 98% chance of causing injury to the motorcycle driver. Unlike enclosed vehicles, motorcycles do not have any external protection, making motorcyclists and their passengers vulnerable to serious personal injuries, including:
- Brain injury
- Burn injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Fractures and broken bones
Every motorcycle accident involves its own unique set of circumstances. Our experienced Kingston motorcycle accident lawyer Charles N. Rock can help you understand and fight for your rights, pursuing the compensation you need to make a full recovery.
The Challenges of Motorcycle Accident Claims
Motorcycle accidents are often hit-and-run or single vehicle accidents with no witnesses. Additionally, victims of motorcycle accidents might not be able to remember the details of their accident because of their injuries. Even if witnesses do exist, they may not be reliable, since they often lack a basic understanding of what can cause motorcycle to crash, or are not sure what truly caused the accident.
Because motorcycle accidents often involve these difficulties and other unique facts, it is important that you hire an experienced New Paltz motorcycle accident lawyer to represent you. Motorcycle Accident Attorney Charles N. Rock works with accident reconstruction experts to thoroughly investigate your accident, searching for evidence that directly links your injuries to the negligent party who caused them.
Recovering Fair Compensation
In a motorcycle accident case, a car or truck does not have to strike the motorcycle in a direct collision in order for the motorcyclist to recover compensation. For example, if a car cuts a motorcycle off, causing it to veer off the street and crash, the motorcyclist can still hold the driver of the car accountable.
