BROOKLYN MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYER

Brooklyn Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Driving a motorcycle is one of the fastest and most intriguing ways to get around the streets of Brooklyn. However, riding a motorcycle down Grand Street or other streets in Brooklyn can also be quite dangerous. Because of the busy roads and streets, you run the risk of running into a passerby or getting knocked off the road by a distracted car, SUV or truck driver. 

 

Whenever a motorcycle accident occurs, it usually results in damning consequences for the cyclist - ranging from high medical expenses to irreparable damage to the motorbike, or yourself.

What Are The Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Brooklyn?

Motorcycle accidents occur for several reasons. Many times these reasons are usually beyond the control of the injured victim. It's essential to determine the cause of a motorcycle accident because it closely ties in with your personal injury claim and amount of compensation that you're likely to get. 

The following are the common causes of motorcycle accidents in Brooklyn:

  • Blind spots and unsafe lane changes by other road users

  • Speeding

  • Distracted driving

  • Intoxication

  • Dangerous left turns

  • Poor visibility

What Are Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries?

Government agencies such as the Insurance Institute For Highway Safety (IIHS) have clearly stated that riding a motorcycle is more dangerous than driving a car. However, that has not stopped many people from moving around the city in their favourite means of transportation.

  • Brain injuries

  • Spinal cord injuries

  • Broken bones

  • Amputations

  • Internal injuries

  • Permanent nerve damage
