Causes of Vehicle-Motorcycle Accidents in NYC
Aggressive, reckless drivers who do not pay attention to the rules of the road are sometimes the reason motorcyclists are struck and injured. Speeding, suddenly changing lanes, tailgating and unexpected braking are among behaviors of negligent drivers that can result in a collision with a motorcyclist. In some cases, road rage plays a role.
We fight for motorcyclists’ rights and will do everything we can to get you maximum compensation if you were hit while riding your motorcycle.
Injuries Suffered by Motorcyclist Hit by Vehicles
Motorcyclists, like pedestrians, can suffer serious injuries when a vehicle hits them, especially when that vehicle is speeding. In some cases, once struck, motorcyclists can be thrown off their bikes. Landing hard on concrete can result in spinal injuries, causing permanent neurological damage. Cervical (neck), thoracic (mid-back) and lumbar (lower back) spine injuries are common injuries suffered by motorcyclists that require lengthy hospitalization and home recovery. Multiple surgeries are sometimes needed to treat spinal injuries. In a worst case scenario, lifelong medical care is needed if a motorcyclist is partially paralyzed after being hit by a car or truck on a NYC street.
