White Plains Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Motorcycle crashes almost always result in devastating injuries. Don’t let yours go uncompensated; get the compensation you deserve by working with a White Plains motorcycle wreck attorney.
While it’s never easy to get fully compensated for the injuries and damages caused by a traffic accident, motorcyclists quite possibly have the most difficult time of all. Unfortunately, insurance companies frequently get out of paying out on claims for injured bikers, taking advantage of popular stereotypes that portray them as reckless and dangerous.
If you’ve already experienced this, or if you’re worried that it might happen to you, Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP is here to help. A White Plains motorcycle accident lawyer from our firm will know how to handle any tactic employed by the insurer, thereby ensuring that you recover all the financial damages that you’re entitled to.
Motorcycle Insurance Laws in New York
While New York is a no-fault state for most auto accidents, motorcycles are not covered by this type of insurance. While this does mean that you don’t have the option of filing a no-fault claim with your own insurer, the good news is that it also means that you don’t need to worry about New York’s serious injury threshold.
In essence, if you were injured in a motorcycle accident and someone else was at fault, you have the option to immediately file a personal injury claim seeking financial compensation from the negligent party. This doesn’t automatically result in a settlement, however, as you can expect the other side’s insurer or attorney to fight tooth and nail to avoid paying you—even blaming you for what happened.
Compensation for Motorcycle Crash Injuries
Bikers often get blamed for wrecks because public perception is that they’re all reckless daredevils. This works to the insurer’s advantage, as playing up these biases can result in a higher percentage of fault being assigned to the motorcyclist—which directly reduces the amount of possible financial compensation.
A White Plains motorcycle crash attorney from our firm can prevent you from experiencing this. Our lawyers will investigate what really happened, identify the causes, and use evidence to prove who was responsible.
Successfully building a personal injury claim will allow you to collect compensation for all of your losses and damages, including any of the following that apply:
