Mount Vernon Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

While many motorcyclists thrive on the ease and freedom of traveling on the open road, there are significant safety drawbacks to operating a vehicle with far less protection than a traditional motor vehicle. Motorcyclists can be seriously injured when other drivers are negligent, roads are poorly maintained, or for a variety of other reasons. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the number of deaths on motorcycles is roughly 29 times the number of passenger vehicles per mile traveled. 

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident due to someone else’s actions, you deserve to be properly compensated for your losses. A Mount Vernon motorcycle accident lawyer at Lever & Ecker, PLLC, understands the lasting impact of accident injuries and will offer highly experienced legal guidance and representation during this challenging time so you can focus on your recovery. 

How Can a Mount Vernon Motorcycle Accident Lawyer Benefit My Case? 

Even though it can seem like a good course of action to seek justice for your injuries alone, it will likely be far more challenging to obtain the full compensation you deserve for your injuries. At Lever & Ecker, PLLC, we take the stress out of your motorcycle accident claim so you can focus on your recovery. We have 65+ years of combined experience advocating for New Yorkers’ rights and know how to navigate the legal process. 

We can increase your chances of a successful settlement or verdict by: 

  • Collecting the necessary evidence to support your case 
  • Conducting an investigation to determine all liable parties for your injuries 
  • Commencing the lawsuit on your behalf
  • Managing all aspects of your claim on a contingency fee basis so you are not responsible for legal fees unless and until we recover the compensation you deserve 
  • Negotiating with all parties involved to secure full compensation for your accident claim 
  • Retaining medical and field experts to evaluate the damages you have suffered and calculate the true value of your claim 
  • Proceeding to trial if a satisfactory resolution cannot be reached outside of the courtroom 
  • Providing legal guidance at every step of the legal process so that you understand your best legal options 

With a highly experienced motorcycle accident lawyer on your side, you will have thorough and aggressive legal representation to navigate the challenges of an accident claim while focusing on recovery. We understand how much of a physical, emotional, and financial burden accident injuries can be, so we fight to get your life back on track.

Liability in Motorcycle Accident Claims in Mount Vernon 

Establishing liability in a motorcycle accident can be complex without representation from a skilled lawyer, especially in cases of a poorly maintained roadway. In such instances, we will use legal strategies such as accident reconstruction to determine how the accident occurred. 

Various parties may be held liable for your motorcycle accident injuries and subsequent losses, such as: 

  • Other motorists on the road, including car, truck and bus drivers
  • Local or state government entities
  • Mechanics or bike shops 
  • Vehicle and parts manufacturers 

Non-Applicability of No-Fault Laws to Motorcycle Accident Victims

A motorcycle is not regarded as a motor vehicle under New York’s No-Fault laws, meaning that motorcyclists are not entitled to medical and lost wage benefits under the No-Fault laws. However, the tradeoff is that a victim in a motorcycle accident is not subject to the serious injury threshold and can file a claim against the liable party even for injuries that would not otherwise pass the serious injury requirement under New York’s Insurance Law. 

Available Compensation for Motorcycle Accident Victims 

If you suffered injuries in a motorcycle accident, you may be eligible to recover economic and non-economic losses depending on the extent of your injuries and the severity of the accident. At Lever & Ecker, PLLC, we will calculate the value of your claim, and pursue such compensation for you, by evaluating accident-related damages: 

  • Pain and suffering (past and future)
  • Lost wages and income (past and future)
  • Accident-related out-of-pocket expenses 
  • Disability or impairment 
  • Emotional distress 
  • Medical expenses 
  • Property damages
  • Reduced quality of life 
  • Scarring and disfigurement 

It can be challenging to determine the financial impact of a motorcycle accident caused by someone else’s actions, which is why we work with experts, including economists, to determine past and future losses. We aggressively fight to protect your legal rights to ensure you are fairly compensated for all of your losses.
