Motorcycle accident injuries are often severe. When a motorcycle accident occurs, the biker is fully exposed to impact and injury. In fact, fatal injuries can sometimes occur. Broken bones, road rash, traumatic brain injuries, and other serious physical injuries are common. While most vehicle accidents result in minor injuries, crashes involving motorcycles usually result in the most significant injuries. This is because bikers do not have the benefit of airbags, seatbelts, and other safety devices. Instead, they are fully exposed to the brunt of impact.
Recovery from such severe injuries can take weeks, months, or even years. Ongoing treatment, like physical therapy, is both time consuming and costly. It can mean expensive medical bills and also time away from work. And for some motorcycle accident victims, long-term disability can impact their job and ability to make a living.
For these reasons, it is critical to obtain maximum financial compensation. Medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and long-term disability can be tremendous and overwhelming after a motorcycle accident. It is important to have a New York City motorcycle accident lawyer representing your case. At Kass & Moses, we will go up against the insurance company and seek fair and just compensation for your personal injury case.

The weeks following a motorcycle crash in New York can seem endless. Between medical treatment and appointments, calls from the insurance company about your injury claims, and time away from work, you may feel like you just cannot handle anything else. This is one of the reasons it can feel unbearable when the insurance adjuster starts calling. They want details about the crash and your injuries, and usually quickly contact you with a settlement offer. Beware the initial settlement offer! It is invariably a very low offer of compensation in the hopes that you will settle your claim.
As New York motorcycle accident lawyers with a combined five decades representing injured bikers, we are familiar with the tactics insurance companies use. They want to contact you at this most vulnerable time and present you with an insulting offer of compensation. They know many people will be eager to receive money quickly, as medical bills are mounting. But by contacting a motorcycle lawyer, you are greatly increasing the likelihood that you will receive fair and just financial compensation for your injuries.
Thousands of motorcycle accidents occur each year in New York. The bikers involved in these motorcycle crashes are often violated after the fact when the insurance company offers them a very small amount of compensation for their injuries. In the case of some motorcycle accident claims, this compensation offer may not even cover the most basic of medical care. Remember, no matter how nice they may seem on the phone, insurance companies are not going to put your interests first. We, as motorcycle accident lawyers work for you. It is our job to seek compensation that is appropriate. Compensation should cover not just your present but also future medical bills, and should be commensurate with the extent of physical injury you have suffered.

All motorcyclists should know about proper safety precautions. Motorcycle safety can prevent some accidents, and can prevent injuries in others. Head injuries are common after a motorcycle crash, and traumatic brain injury can be life-altering (and even fatal, in some cases). Wearing a helmet reduces your risk of head and even some spinal cord injuries in a motorcycle crash. Proper gear can reduce injuries to the hands, face, and other sensitive areas of the body. It can also reduce your risk of road rash.
Distracted and impaired drivers are the cause of tens of thousands of accidents each year. Be wary of all vehicles on the road and do not assume that other drivers can see you. Motorcyclists are often overlooked, especially when drivers are on their cell phones or adjusting their equipment. Our legal team represents bikers each year who have been involved in a motorcycle crash with a drunk or otherwise impaired driver. These accident cases often involve serious injuries. Be aware of all drivers of the road, and remember that as a biker you are more exposed to potential injuries.
Finally, it should go without saying, but never drink before riding a motorcycle. Riding impaired greatly increases your chance of being involved in a motor vehicle accident.
