Why Nassau County Bikers Need Especially Strong Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Let’s face it, no matter how much you love the sense of freedom and independence, there is much more risk involved in riding a motorcycle than in driving a car. Even in New York where motorcycle helmets are mandatory to protect from traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), motorcyclists are over 29 times more likely to die in traffic accidents than other drivers.

The reasons for the increased danger faced by motorcyclists are not difficult to understand. The following factors, many of which make motorcycle riding enjoyable, unfortunately, contribute to the vulnerability of bikers:

  • Motorcycles are much smaller, lighter, and less visible than other vehicles, especially at night or in bad weather
  • Motorcyclists are not protected by the metal frame of an enclosed vehicle
  • Riding a motorcycle requires considerably more skill & balance than driving a car
  • Motorcycles, balancing on two wheels instead of four, have less stability than cars, particularly on turns or curves
  • Many drivers are not as careful as they should be and their negligence, e.g. driving distracted or impaired, disproportionately affects bikers who are harder to notice

Also, riding a motorcycle means, among other things, that you’re outdoors, vulnerable to weather, small obstacles, potholes, and other vehicles in ways other drivers are not.

Common Injuries

It is all too easy to be injured in a motorcycle accident, even one that happens at low speed, since your body is likely to make contact with the road surface. For this reason, the biker can suffer any of the following injuries:

  • Road rash
  • Fractures
  • Internal injuries
  • Spinal cord/brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Organ damage or loss
  • Loss of limb
  • Loss of sight or hearing
  • Wrongful death

Because motorcyclists’ injuries are more likely to be severe than those of other drivers, it is crucial for bikers to have astute legal counsel.

At Kohan Law Group, we know how to calculate not only the resources you need to cover your current expenses but also the funds you will need (depending on your prognosis and familial responsibilities) in the future. You can count on us to fight for the damages you are entitled to keep you and your dependents secure going forward.

Wrongful Death Claims in a Motorcycle Accident

If you have endured the tragedy of losing a loved one in a motorcycle accident, we will do everything possible to support you. We will work tirelessly to obtain funds to cover your final medical and funeral expenses and to compensate you in some measure for your unbearable loss.

You Can Rely on Our Keen Nassau County Attorney

Our motorcycle accident attorneys have dealt with many motorcycle lawsuits and are well-prepared to take the helm. While you concentrate on your recovery, we will:

  • Examine police reports, forensic evidence, and medical records
  • Investigate the accident site and view any surveillance footage
  • Handle all communications with opposing attorneys and insurance adjusters
  • Interview witnesses
  • Determine liability
  • Consult with experts who can bolster your case

Most significantly, we will fight for your right to damages from the negligent driver who caused you harm. Our attorneys are also ready to meet any complications, such as your own partial fault for the accident, or challenges, such as an unexpected change in your medical prognosis.

Furthermore, if a third party was involved in the collision, we will take steps to make sure that person or entity is held accountable. For example, if your accident occurred because a government agency failed to repair the roadway or to keep it free of obstacles or the manufacturer of your motorcycle sold you the bike with defective brakes, you can be sure Kohan Law Group will target the proper defendant.
