Motorcycle Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 5,029 motorcyclists were killed and an additional 88,000 were injured in motorcycle accidents in 2015. Per vehicle mile, motorcycle riders are about 28 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 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 firm have helped accident victims throughout New York build strong cases for more than 75 years. Contact our personal injury law office to schedule a consultation and case review with one of our experienced attorneys.
