New York City Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Few people walk away from a motorcycle accident with injuries that are not serious or permanent, and in many cases, these accidents are fatal. Motorcyclists deserve the same respect on the road as any other vehicle. Vehicle and traffic laws uphold the rights of motorcyclists when the negligence of others causes them serious accidents, and at Raphaelson & Levine, we work hard to protect motorcyclists’ rights. You can count on Raphaelson & Levine Law Firm to set the story straight and fight for you. We know how to overcome the bias against bikers and how to portray the impact of injuries to secure significant compensation.

Establishing Liability for Motorcycle Accidents

The automobile driver, bystanders, and police often wrongfully assume that the motorcyclist has a greater responsibility than the driver of a motor vehicle and is at fault when an accident occurs. The report may say that the motorcyclist was speeding, weaving through traffic, or otherwise reckless. Motorcycle riders are often wrongfully presumed to be scofflaws.

Our experienced trial lawyers know how to focus the investigation to show that the driver of the car or truck was at fault:

  • Turning left without seeing an oncoming motorcycle
  • Changing lanes or sideswiping the bike
  • Tailgating or driving aggressively
  • Preoccupied with a cellphone or other distraction
  • Blowing through a stop sign or red light
  • Pulling out or backing out into traffic

We commonly use accident reconstruction specialists, human factors experts, and other professionals to make the case for liability. We are not afraid to invest in our cases and go all the way to trial to secure justice, as our notable verdicts and settlements illustrate.
