Q: What can a New York motorcycle accident attorney do for me?
If you or someone you love has been involved in a motorcycle accident in New York you should always contact Wingate, Russotti, Shapiro, Moses & Halperin, LLP for a free, no-obligation consultation. Our NY motorcycle accident lawyers will make sure that you are fully protected from other parties involved in your accident and that you receive any and all damages relating to your crash.
While your insurance company may provide you with some payment after your motorcycle accident, our lawyers have successfully settled cases for our clients providing them with much more than was previously offered to them. Our attorneys can seek damages that can help you pay for your motorcycle replacement, medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of work and many others. Please call (212) 986-7353 or contact us online for a free consultation on your case.
Q: How much does it cost to hire your law firm?
You pay us absolutely nothing until your case is over.
Most every motorcycle collision case we handle is done via a contingent fee basis only. Contingent fees are a preset amount of your award and are only due to us if we successfully settle your case. We always factor these fees into any amount we settle on and we never charge hidden legal costs or other surprise costs to our clients.
We can begin working on your case as soon as you contact us and you only pay us when we have recovered money for you. The contingent fees help those who may be unable to afford expensive legal costs and also provide our attorneys with the motivation to have a thorough, quick settlement that gives our clients the damages they deserve.
Q: What should I do after a motorcycle collision if other parties are contacting me?
You should always contact us for a free consultation before you speak to any other party involved in the accident. Sometimes this even includes speaking with your own insurance provider. In many cases we've seen companies and individuals attempt to coerce our clients into settling for far less than they are legally owed. In other cases we have seen lawyers for others involved in the accident try to coerce people into admitting guilt or fault in a wreck.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle collision, we strongly suggest that you do not speak about your case to anyone before consulting us. Do not agree to any settlement amounts with anyone and never admit guilt to anyone. Finding out who is the guilty party in an accident is a very complex matter and insurance companies and the legal community tend to be biased against motorcyclists. Call our office today to find out what the benefits are to hiring a motorcycle crash lawyer in New York.
Q: How dangerous is it to ride a motorcycle in New York?
Each year numerous bikers are killed and seriously injured in motorcycle accidents throughout the state. Despite the biased nature of people regarding motorcycles the majority of these accidents occur at speeds much lower that the speed limit and are caused by another driver of an automobile or larger vehicle.
The danger in riding a motorcycle comes not from the bike itself (including recalled or defective parts) but from other drivers and road conditions. Be careful when riding, always use a helmet and always watch for other negligent drivers (like distracted drivers who are texting) while enjoying New York's roads.
