Marc Albert Represents Motorcycle Accident Victims Who have Suffered Serious Injuries and Families of Those Who have Died as a Result of a Motorcycle Accident

Motorcyclists involved in a crash may suffer more severe injuries than people in standard car accidents, due to the structure of a motorcycle and its lack of protection offered to riders. Many drivers on New York roads do not take proper time or care to look out for motorcycles, leading to serious accidents.

Marc S. Albert helps victims pursue personal injury claims against those responsible for causing their injuries. Marc has been representing clients throughout New York City and on Long Island for over two decades, helping victims reach settlements or obtain verdicts that are sometimes worth millions of dollars. If you have been injured or have lost a loved one due to a devastating motorcycle accident, contact the Law Offices of Marc S. Albert today to find out more about your legal options.

Dangerous Motorcycle Accidents in New York

Motorcycle accidents result in about 150 fatalities in New York annually. Non-fatal accidents result in over 1,500 hospitalizations a year. Many of these fatalities and injuries were due to another driver’s negligence in sharing the roads with motorcyclists. Motorcycle collisions are commonly caused by the following situations:

  • A driver’s failure to yield the right of way to an oncoming motorcyclist.
  • Drivers distracted by phones or otherwise not paying proper attention to the road.
  • Speeding drivers.
  • Motorcycle or road defects.

In some instances, a crash is caused by a “near miss,” in which a motorcyclist is forced to swerve to avoid another vehicle. This can also lead to serious injuries that can include spinal damage or brain injuries, despite the lack of contact with another vehicle. When another driver’s negligent actions have caused injuries or death to a motorcycle rider, Marc Albert can help them pursue legal action against the responsible party.

Responsibility for Motorcycle Crashes Caused by Negligence

To prevail in a personal injury claim, your attorney must show that one or more parties acted negligently in causing your injuries. Negligence means that a defendant failed to act in way that a reasonable person who act under the same or similar circumstances.  For instance, a driver who strikes a motorcyclist while switching lanes without checking for oncoming traffic would likely be determined to be unreasonable. Negligence also requires a showing that the unreasonable act caused a victim’s injuries and resulted in damages. Once liability is established, victims can receive compensation for past and future medical costs, loss of income, and diminished earning capacity, as well as pain and suffering damages.

Even if the motorcyclist is assigned a portion of the responsibility for the accident, through comparative negligence, they may still bring a lawsuit against the person that caused their injury.
