Motorcycle Accident Victims Need Representation Right Away
If you were involved in a motorcycle accident either as a driver or passenger, you should be looking to hire an attorney as soon as possible. Serious motorcycle crash injuries are often life-altering, and it can be very difficult to recover financial compensation for damages and losses. Opposing parties will be looking to pin blame on the operator of the motorcycle, hoping to capitalize on any possible bias in the judicial system and to strike fear in accident victims.
Motorcycle operators and passengers usually do not have access to the No-Fault insurance benefits that other motor vehicle accident victims do. Therefore, you will have to work creatively and pursue compensation from other policies from the start. Contact us right away at 585-687-4425, so we can look at your specific policy.
Turn To Trial Lawyers Who Will Aggressively Pursue Your Maximum Compensation
Insurance companies do not have your best interests in mind. They will work against you, trying to minimize the compensation you need to recover from your accident. Many people involved in a motorcycle accident have a personal injury case, but do not realize it.
A successful personal injury case may result in more than payment of your medical bills, lost wages and repair costs for your bike.

Do Motorcyclists Have The Same Rights?
Motorcycle drivers and passengers have the same road rights as cars, trucks and other vehicles, but other drivers don’t always recognize these rights or exercise proper care on the road. Many serious injuries and tragic fatalities are caused by other drivers failing to look out for motorcycles, turning in front of motorcyclists and making other reckless driving mistakes.
Because you lack the protection provided by other vehicles as a motorcyclist, it is rare to escape an accident without serious injuries that require medical treatment.
As mentioned above, you likely will not have access to No-Fault insurance coverage. This is the key difference in your case. It is critical that you speak with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible to access the compensation you need for recovery.
