According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, about 5,000 motorcyclists die in crashes every year in the U.S. Motorcycles offer zero protection in collisions; riders are dragged, crushed, burned and lacerated, but juries still sometimes stereotype motorcyclists prejudicially. Attorney Orin J. Cohen represents injury victims on Staten Island, in Brooklyn and across New York City in a variety of these accidents.
Proving Negligence In Motorcycle Accidents Requires Experienced Counsel
Even for the best lawyers, it is not an easy matter to obtain fair compensation in a motorcycle accident case. Insurance companies know all the loopholes that allow them to refuse or minimize payment. I know their tactics, and I counter with my complete knowledge of New York motorcycle accident law. I know how much this compensation means to you, and I will fight to see that you get it.
Fact: Nearly 6,000 motorcycle crashes occurred on New York state roads and highways in 2012. Of these, 164 resulted in fatalities. In almost all cases, the motorcycle driver was the person killed. (Source: New York State Department of Motor Vehicles)
Compensation For Victims Of New York Motorcycle Crashes
Many motorcycle crash injuries are catastrophic, causing severe or permanent damage to the brain, spine, limbs and skin. Your recovery from such injuries may be lifelong, and I seek compensation appropriate to the severity of your injuries.
Some motorcycle accidents end in death. In wrongful death cases, I investigate the accident, identify the root causes and work to hold the negligent parties accountable.
Unless I Succeed For You, You Owe Me Nothing
I take motorcycle accident cases on a contingency fee basis. This means I do not accept a fee until I achieve a positive outcome for you.
