FAQs

This is not legal advice.
Since every case is unique, consider working with a lawyer to get advice on your specific situation.

  • What Should I Do Immediately after a Motorcycle Accident in NYC?

    Immediately after an accident, you should seek medical attention immediately. Call 911. Ensure your safety and seek medical attention. Document the scene with photos and collect witness statements and contact information if possible. Then, consult with a NYC motorcycle accident lawyer to protect your rights.

  • How Does New York’s No-Fault Law Affect Motorcycle Accident Claims?

    New York’s no-fault law does not cover motorcyclists, meaning you may need to pursue compensation through a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party or through your own insurance if you have coverage.

  • Can I Claim Compensation If I Was Partially at Fault?

    Yes, New York follows a comparative negligence system. You can still claim compensation even if you were partially at fault, though your percentage of fault may reduce your compensation. For example, if you are determined to be 40% at fault for your accident, your compensation amount will be reduced by that same percentage.

  • What Types of Compensation Can I Recover?

    Victims of motorcycle accidents can recover damages for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Each case is unique, so it’s important to discuss your specific situation with an attorney. Contact us today if you have questions about compensation and your case.

  • How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit after a Motorcycle Accident?

    In many cases in New York, you will have a three-year window to file a lawsuit after your accident. In other cases, that window is much smaller and can take as little as several weeks. Everything depends on the specifics of your case, so it’s important to act quickly. If you miss your deadline, this can prevent you from seeking compensation later on. If you have questions about the Statute of Limitations in New York, contact us today.
