Motorcycle Accidents & Catastrophic Injuries
Because motorcycles don’t surround riders with any structural protection, motorcyclists who become involved in accidents often suffer life-threatening catastrophic injuries. Fatalities are unfortunately far more likely in motorcycle crashes than in any other type of motor vehicle accident. With severe injuries, the need for an experienced personal injury advocate is even greater. At Koenigsberg & Associates Law Offices, it is our mission to ensure that we do everything possible to obtain maximum compensation for the seriously injured. Call on us if you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, spinal cord injury, or other catastrophic injury in a motorcycle accident.
Experienced legal representation can mean the difference between a small settlement that barely covers your short-term medical expenses, and a large award that fairly compensates you for your pain and suffering and also gives you the financial ability to get proper treatment for the rest of your life, if necessary. Don’t go to court without an attorney by your side and on your case.

Who Can You Sue After a Motorcycle Accident?
Your recovery after a motorcycle accident should be your priority, which could mean filing a claim against the appropriate parties. Who can you sue after being in a motorcycle accident, though? In New York, you can sue any party who caused or contributed to your motorcycle accident, but only if you are seriously injured and there are damages that have not been covered by your personal injury protection (PIP) insurance policy.
Parties that could be named defendants in your claim or lawsuit are:
- Driver of a passenger vehicle
- Commercial truck driver
- Motorcycle part manufacturer
- Municipality if hit by a city bus
Our New York City motorcycle accident lawyers can help you pinpoint liability for your accident by investigating its cause. Whether there are one or a dozen liable parties, we can manage claims filed against them all.
How Much Money Can You Get for a Motorcycle Accident Claim?
The value of a motorcycle accident claim will vary from case to case. Even two extremely similar accidents can end with completely different amounts of money being paid to the two claimants.
The value of your motorcycle accident claim can be changed by your:
- Injury severity
- Regular income
- Health before the accident
To determine the amount of compensation that you should be given by the liable party or parties, we recommend working with our lawyers as soon as you can after being in a crash. We know where to find damages and calculate them accurately. Our goal is to leave not even a cent of compensation unclaimed by the time your case is done, either through a settlement or litigation.
Do You Have a Claim If You Weren’t Wearing a Helmet?
Do You Really Need a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer?
Motorcycle accidents are as frustrating as they are complicated because insurance companies usually jump at the chance to try to blame it on the motorcyclist without due cause. They try to paint the picture that all motorcycle riders are “reckless,” and, therefore, you must be the one who caused the crash. While you don’t need to hire a motorcycle accident attorney to work on your case, it is highly suggested that you do for this reason alone.
A professional motorcycle accident lawyer can also help you understand all the nuances of New York’s liability laws, as well as the intricacies of claim preparation and filing. When you get our attorneys on your side and acting on your behalf, all of our experience becomes your own.
