Motorcycle Accidents

Determined litigation of tough, catastrophic injury cases

Motorcycles provide an enjoyable and affordable mode of transportation. But in any type of motorcycle accident, drivers and passengers typically suffer serious injuries and fatalities at a rate surpassing those in larger, more protected vehicles. In New York in 2013, 157 motorcycle operators and 9 passengers died in accidents. More than 5,000 operators and their passengers suffered non-fatal injuries in that same year - often head, spinal cord, and other injuries resulting in long-term or permanent disability.

Common perceptions often unfairly blame motorcyclists for these accidents, which makes it vital for them to seek legal assistance from a Brooklyn motorcycle accident lawyer who has extensive experience in this specific area of personal injury law. With over three decades of experience, Rubin & Licatesi, P.C. provides the skills and resources needed to help protect the rights of injured victims of motorcycle accidents.

Brooklyn attorneys guard your rights in NYC motorcycle accident claims

If you suffer injury as a driver or passenger involved in a motorcycle accident caused by the negligence of others, you have several options in filing a claim, each with important advantages and disadvantages. After seeking immediate medical diagnosis and treatment, a free initial consultation with a motorcycle accident attorney at Rubin & Licatesi can help ensure you take the appropriate legal action for your specific situation.

For relatively minor injuries, you may be able to file an insurance claim. While this option typically provides quick compensation, policy limits and other issues may prevent you from obtaining full compensation for more serious injuries. Negotiating an out-of-court settlement helps ensure your ability to receive full compensation for all expenses related to your injury within a reasonable period. The most stressful and lengthy option involves taking your claim to court. But for a particularly severe case in Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island or elsewhere in New York, your motorcycle accident lawyer may recommend a lawsuit, particularly when at-fault parties do not accept liability.

Did you know that there are no medical benefits provided to a motorcyclist? New York State does not require an insurance company to provide a motorcycle or bike accident victim with no-fault medical benefits.

At Rubin & Licatesi, we take the time to assess the best options for your case. We protect your rights by conducting thorough investigations and enlisting the aid of investigative and medical specialists when needed to develop an effective case on your behalf.
