Motorcycle riders have a right to the road, just like other motorists. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are all too often denied these rights by motorists who fail to see and recognize them, or who intentionally fail to provide the motorcycle with the same ownership of the road. If you are a motorcycle rider who has been injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by someone else's negligence, please call experienced attorney Ira Maurer at (845) 896-5295.
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Because of the lack of protection offered by a motorcycle itself, injuries sustained in a bike accident can be very severe, such as:
- Amputation/loss of limb
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Severe internal injuries
- Head and brain injury
- Spinal cord injuries
These physical injuries can be life-altering in their ability to disable the person who suffers them. Additionally, if you suffered a serious injuries like one of those listed above, you may also be dealing with the emotional and mental trauma of the accident. You deserve compensation for these things and others, and attorney Ira Maurer is ready to stand at your side and fight for maximum compensation on your behalf.
