Brooklyn Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Help You Recover
Crash victims have enough distress and worries following a motorcycle accident. The last thing they need is the added stress of dealing with insurance adjusters. By hiring a qualified Brooklyn motorcycle accident lawyer, we pursue your financial recovery while you focus on recovering from your injuries.
Our process starts with a free, no-obligation case evaluation. During this process, we review the details of your crash and determine the at-fault party. From there, we will:
- Gather evidence to prove how the liable party caused your damages
- Organize our evidence into a sound injury claim
- Demand full and fair compensation from the responsible insurance company
- If necessary, take your claim to court and represent you in front of a jury
Our law firm operates on a contingency basis. That means there is no financial risk or out-of-pocket costs when hiring our team. The outcome of your injury case is as important to us as it is to you, so we don’t collect payment until you receive a fair settlement. If a fair settlement is not offered, we will take your case to trial.
Damages You Can Collect after a Brooklyn Motorcycle Accident
Motorcycle accidents lead to physical injuries, mental trauma, and economic losses. You are entitled to compensation that covers all of your damages, and our experienced personal injury lawyers will fight to make sure you receive it.
Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering are a type of non-economic damage that comprises the physical and mental injuries caused by a crash. Damages for permanent injuries and disabilities include:
- Emotional distress (such as fear, grief, and anxiety)
- Pain suffered at the time of the accident to the present
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- All anticipated future pain and suffering
Quantifying these losses in dollar terms is complex, and insurance companies try to undercut the value of your damages. But our accident and injury lawyers know how to show how devastating and debilitating your physical injuries and emotional trauma are in order to fight for all the compensation that you deserve.
A motorcycle provides almost none of the protective features found in a car or truck. Sadly, this causes biker injuries to be severe or permanent in many cases. Some of the most common motorcycle crash injuries we see in Brooklyn include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Back, neck, and spinal cord damage
- Soft tissue wounds
- Broken or fractured bones
- Burns, scrapes, and road rash
- Eye injuries
Treating and rehabilitating these types of physical injuries is time-consuming and expensive. Our accident lawyers pursue a settlement that covers all necessary medical bills. This includes:
- Hospital bills
- Nursing care
- Pharmaceutical and medical supply costs
- Future medical care (such as physical therapy)
Our Brooklyn motorcycle accident attorneys believe that those who caused your injuries should be the ones who pay for them. With that in mind, we make sure you receive maximum compensation for your medical expenses.
Lost Wages and Reduced Earning Capacity
If you sustain injuries during a motorcycle accident, you may be incapable of working while you recover. A disabling injury could put you out of work on a long-term basis or, potentially, forever. And once you return to work, you may not be able to work at full capacity, leading to reduced wages.
The responsible party and their insurance companies must pay for any lost earnings you endure due to your injuries. They are also liable for covering any loss of future earning potential you experience due to permanent injuries.
We step in to make sure that the lost wages and diminished future income does not create a burden on your lifestyle. Our experienced motorcycle wreck attorneys calculate the monetary retribution your injuries merit, and we make sure you receive every penny of it.
Most of motorcycle accident victims suffer extensive damage to their motorcycles. Our law firm seeks to compensate clients for their property damage. We make sure the at-fault party pays for:
- Property repairs: All necessary repairs to your motorcycle
- Replacement costs: The total cost to replace the motorcycle if it was destroyed during the collision
According to the Executive Summary from NY Dot’s Motorcycle Safety Study, the fatal crash rate for motorcyclists is twice the rate of motor vehicle drivers.
If you lost a loved one in a fatal motorcycle collision, we help you file a wrongful death claim. Our attorneys seek recovery for:
- Pain and suffering the deceased experienced before death
- Loss of future income for the departed
- Loss of love, guidance, and companionship to a spouse or children
- Funeral and burial expenses
The grieving process is traumatic, and insurance companies may take advantage of your vulnerability by offering a settlement that is less than what you deserve. By partnering with our law firm, we make sure your financial compensation recoups all of your losses.
Our motorcycle crash attorneys gather evidence to support your accident claim and obtain compensation for your injuries following a motorcycle crash. In most motorcycle lawsuits, the cause of the accident is negligence. To prove negligence, our lawyers establish:
- Duty of care: The defendant must act in a way that a reasonable person would.
- Breach of duty: The defendant breached the standard duty of care through careless or reckless actions.
- Causation: The defendant’s behavior resulted in your injuries.
- Damages: Your injuries lead to economic and non-economic losses.
We consult with medical experts, obtain official police reports from the accident, and confer with witnesses to build your case and demonstrate how the liable party is responsible for your losses.
The guilty party could be a negligent driver, but it could also be a third party, like a truck manufacturer, or city official who neglected to cover a pothole or the City of New York in failing to maintain the roadways in a safe condition. No matter who the responsible party is, you can trust our motorcycle accident attorneys to hold them accountable.
