Each lawyer at our firm has extensive experience fighting for maximum awards for motorcycle accident victims.

The risks to motorcyclists on New York streets

In many ways, motorcycles offer a viable alternative to larger vehicles when navigating congested NYC and Manhattan streets. But traffic congestion also increases the risks of motorcycle accidents. Drivers of cars and other larger vehicles cannot always see motorcycles—and drivers tend to put responsibility for accident avoidance on motorcyclists, even though the rules of the road state otherwise.

In 2010 alone, New York streets saw 5,570 motorcycle accidents—180 fatal, and 4,747 involving personal injuries. While NY law requires all riders of certain low-power cycles to wear helmets, the fact remains that motorcyclists do not benefit from the same protection afforded by other types of vehicles. Collisions have a greater likelihood of causing serious injuries, including head and brain trauma, broken bones, internal injuries, and debilitating spinal cord damage—particularly when an accident throws riders from their vehicles. Even those who survive serious accidents can often expect extensive and costly medical treatment and therapy over a long period to achieve full or partial recovery. Others face permanent disability.

How our attorneys can help

In addition to dealing with extensive injuries, motorcyclists can face adverse public opinion when claiming the negligent acts of others caused an accident. At Rubenstein & Rynecki, we anticipate negative attitudes and conduct thorough investigations, using a network of investigative experts when needed to develop compelling evidence for each case. We also rely on medical specialists to accurately compile a list of all past, current, and future anticipated expenses to help our clients pursue the full value of their claims.
