Motorcycle accidents are often much more severe than collisions between passenger vehicles. Riders have little that protects them from the impact of a crash, which dramatically increases the risk of serious injury. They are roughly 28 times more likely to die in a crash compared to a passenger in a car, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
If you were hurt in a motorcycle accident, you might be entitled to monetary damages. With the help of a Bronx motorcycle accident lawyer at Friedman, Levy, Goldfarb & Green P.C., you could pursue an insurance claim or civil lawsuit to secure the compensation you deserve. Let a Bronx personal injury lawyer serve as your advocate.

Understanding motorcycle accident injuries
Due to the exposed nature of motorcyclists, a rider can suffer injuries on any part of their body. These often result from the initial collision with the other vehicle, but they could also stem from a rider being thrown from their bike and striking the ground.
One of the injuries synonymous with motorcycle accidents is road rash– burn-like injuries to the skin that can occur when a rider is thrown from their bike. It is both common and painful, but it is not the most severe injury associated with motorcycle accidents. Some of the others include:
- Broken bones
- Internal bleeding
- Cuts and bruises
- Skull fractures
- Concussions and other traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Sprains and strains
Each of these requires time and money to heal. A successful personal injury lawsuit will provide you with the financial resources to begin rebuilding your life.
Pursuing your case with no upfront legal fees
If you were hurt through no fault of your own, you deserve the chance to recover compensation from the at-fault party. For some people, the thought of hiring an attorney may seem intimidating. However, we work on a contingency fee basis. You can pursue a civil case following your accident without paying any upfront attorney fees. We collect our fee based on what we recover on your behalf.
