At Constantinidis & Associates, P.C., we understand that as fuel prices rise, more and more individuals are seeking less expensive means of transportation to and from work these days. Whether you’re riding your bike to and from work or simply for pleasure, the likelihood of being involved in an accident and being seriously injured has increased. As a result, we hear way too often in the news about motorcyclists being seriously injured and killed on the roads of New York. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured, you need a law firm with experience handling serious motorcycle accident cases.
Motorcyclists tend to sustain greater injuries when they are involved in an accident since a motorcycle does not provide the same protection that one has when riding in a motor vehicle. As such, the injuries sustained tend to be more severe often involving brain injury, spinal cord injury, internal bleeding, neck and back injury, paralysis and sometimes death. In addition to these injuries, the injured victim is unable to return to work, medical bills and living expenses go through the roof and one’s emotional state of mind is compromised. Don’t continue needlessly suffering alone. Contact us and we will help you navigate through the rough waters that lie ahead and help you focus on your physical and emotional recovery. Our team of attorneys and staff are ready, willing and able to help you put your life back together and address your growing medical bills and get you the help necessary to address your physical and emotional suffering.
What to do After a Motorcycle Accident
If you have been involved in a Motorcycle Accident, you should take the following steps if possible:
- Seek medical attention immediately if you are injured
- Contact the police and have an accident report prepared
- Get the name of all parties involved, their contact information, their driver’s license number and insurance information
- Get the name and contact information of all witnesses
- Take photographs of the license plate of the vehicles involved
- Take photographs of the scene
- Report the accident to your insurance company
- Consult an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer
While it is important to report the motorcycle accident to your insurance company, you should never give a written or verbal statement regarding the details of the accident to an insurance representative until you consult with an experienced motorcycle accident attorney. The reason we state this is because quite often, insurance companies ask certain questions in such a manner to try to get you to provide a statement which admits fault or limits their liability. By consulting with an attorney first, you will ensure that your compensation is not unjustly reduced or compromised.
