Motorcycle Accident Attorneys¬†You Can Trust in Albany, Saugerties, & Johnstown NY
Motorcyclists have the same rights and privileges as all other vehicle drivers they share the roads with. They do not, however, have the same physical protection to keep them safe as they travel.
Even responsible motorcyclists wearing helmets and protective body gear remain extremely vulnerable when out on the roadways.¬†As a result, when accidents¬†involving motorcycles occur, they often result in devastating and sometimes fatal injuries to motorcyclists.
At Maynard Injury Law, we understand this, and we’ve made it our mission to protect the rights of injured motorcyclists when the negligence of other drivers has put them in harm’s way.
We Understand Motorcycle Accidents
Our experienced motorcycle accident attorneys in Albany, Johnstown, Hudson, Saugerties and Ulster County NY understand that accidents involving even the safest motorcyclists often result in injuries far greater than what another car driver might suffer, and have a greater risk of fractures, permanent disability, or even fatality.
We firmly believe that most motorcyclists are responsible drivers who observe legal limits and rules of the road, but also recognize that motorcyclists face different hazards than drivers of traditional vehicles. We recognize that:
- Other cars and trucks often fail to notice motorcycles on the road, and fail to take that critical second look¬Ě before changing lanes
- Because of their relatively small size, motorcycles can be easily hidden in a car’s blind spot¬Ě or obscured by objects in the background
- Other drivers frequently misjudge a motorcycle’s speed, or mistakenly believe that it is farther away than it actually is
We also understand that the motorcycle accident that left you seriously injured may not have been your fault. And if it was caused by the negligence of another driver, you may be entitled to compensation.
If a motorcycle accident in Upstate NY left you seriously injured, we’re¬†here to help you get the compensation you deserve.
Protecting¬†Your Rights as a Motorcyclist
Legal issues arising from motorcycle accidents are unique and, at times, complex. For instance, unlike traditional automobile accidents, No-Fault insurance coverage does not apply to motorcyclists. This can result in significant medical expenses and lost income that may not be compensated by insurance, making your claim against the other party even more important.
This, and other¬†important distinctions between an auto and motorcycle accidents, may affect your recovery of expenses and compensation. As motorcycle accident attorneys with decades of experience, we know what it takes to protect your rights if you’ve been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident. We’re willing to work with you every step of the way to protect your rights and get you the compensation you deserve.
