Why Buffalo Motorcyclists Need an Attorney After a Crash

by William Mattar | May 3rd, 2019

If you are enjoying an afternoon motorcycle ride and a negligent Buffalo driver hits you, hiring a motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible will help you obtain  adequate compensation for your serious physical injuries and other damages. The personal injury attorneys at William Mattar have knowledge regarding New York’s complex motorcycle and automobile accident laws and can provide the kind of experienced legal assistance you need.

What Can Buffalo Motorcycle Attorneys Do for Victims of Severe Accident Injuries?

Key reasons for hiring a motorcycle accident attorney if you are seriously injured while operating or riding on a motorcycle include:

  • Gathering accurate evidence (witness statements, police reports, medical documentation) to prove your case and show the court the extent of your injuries
  • Dealing with insurance companies representing the at-fault driver that resist paying out compensation to accident victims
  • Giving solid legal advice regarding your options over the course of your recovery and ensuing compensation relief
  • Performing legwork, including document submission and court-related mandates on your behalf while you recover from injuries

When your attorney files a claim on your behalf, this tells the at-fault driver’s insurance company that you are serious about obtaining compensation for your damages. In addition, once your claim is in litigation, the claims is transferred to higher level “litigation” adjusters who have more authority to settle a case.

Hiring a Buffalo motorcycle accident attorney can help you make your claim. Depending on the circumstances, our attorneys may also be able to come to the hospital or your home if you are unable to visit our office for a consultation appointment.

New York Statute of Limitations for Filing Accident Compensation Claims

You should also be aware that New York has strict statue of limitations guidelines for people wanting to file an accident claim. Statutes of limitations can range in time, and the applicable statute of limitations period depends on the facts of your case.
