Proving Driver Liability for Your Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcycles allow riders the opportunity to experience the freedom of the open road. It is this same openness that places operators and riders at an increased risk for serious harm in an accident. The lack of a protective frame puts motorcycle riders at risk of injuries that passenger vehicle drivers do not face at the same rate. The lack of restraints and airbags on a motorcycle also place motorcycle riders and their passengers at risk for serious harm in an accident.
Motorcycle accidents can result from either the fault of another driver who causes or contributes to an accident by failing to drive carefully or from dangerous or defective roadway conditions such as construction holes, trenches, or unclear traffic warnings.
Determining liability for your motorcycle accident injuries is where an attorney from Dansker & Aspromonte Associates can help you.
There May Be Multiple Causes of Your Motorcycle Accident
Roadways and especially intersections can be dangerous locations for motorcycles. Some of the most common causes of accidents involving motorcyclists include when other drivers fail to:
- Judge the approximate speed or direction of an approaching motorcycle
- Look carefully at vehicular traffic on the road
- Adjust their mirrors to compensate for blind spots surrounding the vehicle
- Resist the temptation to text or use their phone while driving
- Obey speed limits and other traffic rules
- Properly survey an intersection before turning
- Enter or exit the flow of moving traffic without proper care
Motorcycle accidents can also result from dangerous or defective conditions on the roadway that are caused by road construction performed by entities such as The City of New York Department of Transportation, Con Ed, Verizon, the gas company or other private construction company. The activities performed by these businesses can cause or contribute to a motorcyclist losing control and sustaining serious injuries. Some examples may include:
- Potholes or sunken excavations in the road
- Raised or bumpy conditions resulting from improper construction or maintenance
- Construction debris in the road such as dirt, asphalt or stray lumber
- Confusing or improper road signs
- Poor lighting
These are not the only examples of negligence that may have contributed to your accident. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you should call the lawyers at Dansker & Aspromonte Associates even if you feel you may have caused or contributed to your own accident. You may still be able to pursue legal action against the other driver or roadway construction contractor. We will use our decades of experience fighting for people like you to ensure that a full investigation of the accident is performed, and all of the facts and circumstances are considered in a light most favorable to you.

Motorcycle Accident Injuries Are Often Very Serious
Because of limited protection that is provided to motorcycle drivers and passengers, the injuries they sustain are often more serious than we would see in a typical 2-car accident. These injuries include:
- Severe fractures of the bones often requiring surgery
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal injuries including paralysis
- Internal organ trauma
- Skin lesions including “road rash” and permanent scarring
- Tears of the soft tissues in the body requiring surgical repair
We Can Also Help if Your Loved One’s Motorcycle Injuries Were Fatal
Unfortunately, many motorcycle accidents result in the loss of life. If you lost a loved one in a Queens motorcycle accident, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit. Dealing with the sudden and unexpected loss of your loved one affects more than just your emotional health. It can also greatly impact your finances if your loved one provided financial support to your family. The loss of income and potential future earnings only adds to your stress as you grieve your loss. A wrongful death lawsuit may enable you to fight for fair and just monetary compensation for the pain and suffering of your loved one, medical bills and costs, lost wages, funeral expenses, and the value of your loved one’s guidance, support, and services to the family.
Be sure to act quickly as you have a limited amount of time to file. If you fail to file your claim within the required deadline, you may be forever barred from receiving the financial compensation you deserve.
Be Wary of Offers To Quickly Resolve Your Case
After your accident, you may be contacted by someone on behalf of the other side seeking to offer you a quick settlement of your claim. Resist the temptation to accept such an offer as it often represents only a tiny fraction of the compensation you are truly entitled to. The other side does not have your best interests in mind. Before you speak to an investigator, insurance adjuster or attorney for the other side, protect yourself by speaking to the attorneys at Dansker & Aspromonte first. Our consultation is free and there is no obligation to you. If we agree to accept your case, you will not be required to pay us any money upfront. We will advance all expenses necessary to investigate and fight for the claim. We only earn a legal fee if you receive compensation.
