Motorcycle Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were 4,553 motorcyclists killed and an additional 87,000 were injuries in motorcycle accidents in 2005. Per vehicle mile, motorcycle riders are about 34 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a traffic crash.

Because motorcycles do not offer the physical protection that other motor vehicles do, motorcyclists are much more susceptible to catastrophic personal injury and death. If you or a family member has been involved in a motorcycle accident, the lawyers at Kelner & Kelner, Attorneys at Law may file a lawsuit on your behalf to recoup damages for the victim's injuries, lost property, and pain and suffering.

Too often, motorcycle accident victims must overcome the common bias that a collision between a motorcycle and another motor vehicle is likely the fault of a careless, inexperienced, or reckless motorcyclist. The motorcycle accident lawyers at our Manhattan, New York City firm have helped accident victims throughout New York build strong cases for more than 60 years. Contact our personal injury law office to schedule a consultation and case review with one of our experienced attorneys.
