Do you need a motorcycle accident lawyer who knows how to deal with your medical bills and treatment?
Immediately after the accident, motorcyclists have to deal with the confusing issue of who will pay the medical bills. Even hospitals, doctors, and lawyers often get this wrong. When the wrong insurance company is billed you can become responsible for the medical bills.
Many personal injury lawyers do not know you aren’t entitled to No-Fault or how your medical bills will be paid!
Motorcyclists do not get New York No-Fault insurance which pays for medical bills and lost wages in a car accident.
If you don’t have health insurance coverage, you won’t be able to find doctors to treat you. You’ll need a motorcycle accident lawyer who can get doctors to treat you on a lien (when the doctor agrees to get paid at the end of your case).
Although the money to pay your medical bills comes out of your settlement, it increases your settlement by the same amount because, in a motorcycle accident in New York, the defendant is responsible to pay for your medical bills.
A motorcycle accident lawyer who deals with this regularly has the ability to get the medical treatment you’ll need such as orthopedic surgery, therapy, plastic surgery, and dental treatment without you having to pay for it upfront.
When Donna had a motorcycle accident causing dental damage, we sent her to a prosthodontist and got her teeth fixed. See her new house she bought when we settled her case.
A motorcycle lawyer knows the serious injury threshold for cars does not apply to motorcycles
To receive money for pain-and-suffering, motorcyclists are not required to prove they have a serious injury that is required for the occupant of a car. This is an important benefit to motorcyclists because it is very complicated and difficult to prove, even if you had surgery. Lawyers who are not experienced with motorcycle accidents are often unaware of this.
Many lawyers do not know you don’t need to prove you have a serious injury! We even got a call from a lawyer at a very large law firm you’ve seen advertising on TV for motorcycle accidents. He asked us if we could give him a motion to prove their client had a serious injury for one of their motorcycle accident cases. I had to tell him there was no requirement for a serious injury. We also received other calls from lawyers asking for advice about motorcycle accident cases.
When you’re injured in a motorcycle accident, you can get money no matter how minor your injury is, even if you only had a scratch.
We know how to prove your motorcycle accident wasn’t your fault!
Determining and proving liability (who’s at fault) in a motorcycle accident is different than a car accident. There are some laws that provide a benefit to motorcyclists and help prove the driver of the car was at fault.
Motorcycle accidents are almost always caused because the driver didn’t see the motorcycle. Understanding why the driver didn’t see you helps to prove the driver is at fault for causing your motorcycle accident. Understanding other aspects such as why a motorcycle cannot stop as fast as a car is also important to prove the driver is at fault.

Which personal injury lawyers handle motorcycle accidents?
Very few personal injury lawyers are experienced with motorcycle accidents. Many lawyers don’t even want motorcycle accidents. We do!
We have been advertising for motorcycle accidents in FullThrottle NY/NE Magazine since the magazine started and for several years were the only motorcycle accident lawyers in the magazine. So call the best motorcycle accident lawyers in New York for a free consultation.
Why you should contact a lawyer immediately after your accident
You’ll be better off when contacting a motorcycle accident lawyer as soon as possible. What you say will likely be misunderstood from the moment police arrive and take your statement; EMS, nurses, and doctors ask you what happened; to telephone conversations with insurance representatives who are trained to ruin your case.
