Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Understanding Motorcycle Accident Injury Cases
Watch the following educational legal video by Lisa A. Poch, an experienced Hamburg injury lawyer to learn about motorcycle accident injuries and how they differ from automobile accident injury cases.
If you are injured on a motorcycle in Buffalo, keep several things in mind. Number one is that the no-fault law in New York State does not apply. Most of the time, you’ll be on the hook for your own medical bills – unless you purchase specific coverage through your own insurance to cover your bike. We always encourage our clients who ride motorcycles – or who are frequent passengers on motorcycles – to make sure that they and their family members have adequate coverage in case of an accident. Needless to say, you should always wear a helmet, and get on a bike only with someone who’s safe, knows how to operate the bike, and follows the rules of the road. Keep those things in mind if you ride a motorcycle in Buffalo.
Strict deadlines apply with respect to obtaining benefits pursuant to no-fault. When someone suffers motorcycle accident injuries, it is especially important to consult with an experienced attorney for this reason.
