Our team has won thousands of dollars in compensation for our Brooklyn, NY clients in the past, and we’ll fight for you as well.
Is It Common to Be Seriously Injured in a Motorcycle Accident?
Unfortunately, severe injuries are common among motorcycle accident victims. Many riders do not wear helmets and other protective gear, which can result in even more serious wounds. Harmful accidents can also occur at slow speeds, so don’t let your guard down just because the speed limit is lower in your neighborhood. Common injuries include:
- Broken and fractured bones
- Deep cuts and lacerations
- Brain trauma
- Spinal injuries
- Loss of limb
How Do I Prove Fault in a Motorcycle Accident?
Proving fault is essential when making a motorcycle accident claim. Fortunately, the team at The Forzano Law Firm will be at your side every step of the way. We’ll help you gather the appropriate evidence and documentation to show that the other party behaved negligently. Our auto accident lawyers might secure the following pieces of evidence:
- Accident reports
- Past driver records
- Video footage
- Witness testimony
- Accident reconstruction
How Much Money Can I Expect from My Case?
We can’t estimate how much compensation you’ll gain without knowing all the facts of your case. Even then, every situation is different, and you may get a different result than someone with a similar case. You may get more or less compensation depending on fault, the extent of your injuries, and various other factors. Nevertheless, many of our clients have gained the following types of compensation:
- Past and future medical bills
- Lost wages or loss of ability to work
- Reimbursement for medical supplies
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Loss of quality of life
How Long Will My Case Take to Be Resolved?
There is no good way to guess how long your case will take to resolve. Our motorcycle injury lawyers have worked on a variety of cases, and length depends on numerous factors. We’ll do everything we can to simplify the legal process and wrap up your case quickly if that’s in your best interest. Many of our clients get more benefit out of a longer court process that could result in additional damages being awarded.
Is It Too Late to File a Claim?
New York has a three-year statute of limitations on motorcycle accident claims. That means you must file your personal injury claim within three years of the accident. If you want compensation for your injuries, it’s a good idea to reach out to an attorney as soon as possible. Set up a consultation with The Forzano Law Firm as soon as you are able and explain your circumstances. We have years of experience with this type of personal injury case, but it always helps to have plenty of time to organize documents and secure evidence.
