Hudson Valley Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Injured While Riding? We Can Help!
When the weather permits, there is nothing like taking to the open road in upstate New York. Unfortunately, the open road is not always friendly to riders, who are particularly susceptible to life-altering injuries even if they are wearing helmets and other protective gear.
Unlike victims of other motor vehicle accidents, injured motorcyclists are not covered under New York’s no-fault law, meaning that their insurance does not pay out for accidents that are the rider's fault. If another negligent party can be proven responsible for the accident, however, we can fight for compensation. With the help of an experienced Hudson Valley motorcycle accident attorney, an injured rider can recover expenses for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and in the event of a fatality, wrongful death benefits for their family.
