In any overcrowded metropolis such as New York, where pedestrians constantly battle with motor vehicle operators for space on the roadways, accidents are inevitable.
Year after year, New York City ranks among the top-10 towns for motorcycle accidents.
In the last four years alone, there were a reported 96 motorcycle fatalities in the five boroughs, and that is an alarming statistic.
If you, a family member, or another loved one was thrown off a motorcycle by a careless, impaired, or distracted driver of a car, truck, SUV, bus, or other vehicle, or sustained any injury, property damage, lost wages, or emotional suffering as the result of a mishap while riding a motorcycle, the attorneys at Simon Bennett Robbins Oppenheim & Taft can help you recover a monetary award from the negligent party.
Just as with instances of accidents involving cars, buses, limousines, and SUVs, the insurance company that represents the party that crashed into your motorcycle will work its hardest to minimize the amount it will be legally responsible to pay you.
It will attempt to do this by locking you into a story, often under duress, coercing you into admitting information and purported facts that simply are not true and fully accurate, or perhaps bamboozling you into accepting a settlement offer far below that to which you are entitled.
We therefore encourage you to immediately call Simon Bennett Robbins Oppenheim & Taft, as we are top personal injury lawyers, who understand completely all of the tactics and tricks that insurers will attempt to utilize. Once our services are retained, we will speak with all insurance company personnel and claims adjusters on your behalf.
That will accomplish two important objectives. First, it will allow you to focus on what's most important, recovery. Secondly, it will prevent you from being conned by the insurance companies, who are expert at convincing injury victims of all sorts of delusional theories and suppositions as to how or why the accident took place.
Even the most cautious motorcycle driver who is properly protected with the requisit safety equipment such as a helmet and pads, can sustain life-changing injuries at the hands of an irresponsible fellow motorist.
That is why an experienced, knowledgeable, zealous, and resourceful personal injury law firm such as Simon Bennett Robbins Oppenheim & Taft is needed to champion your rights if you've been rear-ended, sideswiped, or rammed while legally and safely operating your motorcycle on the streets of New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut.
It can be somewhat embarrassing to admit, but New York is home to some of the country's very worst drivers. With so many visual distractions festooning busy parts of the city such as Times Square, the Financial District, and Central Park, it's easy for New York drivers to lose their concentration and plow into a motorcycle.
And motorcycles, even the very best brands such as Harley-Davidson, Ducatis, Yamaha, and BMW, are known to eject their riders even upon impact of a slow-speed collision. That leaves the operators of these bikes in a terribly vulnerable position.
Simon Bennett Robbins Oppenheim & Taft has been fighting for the rights of motorcycle accident victims for the last nine-plus decades. We stay current with changing legislation and policies, and understand fully what it takes to bring an action against motorists and the companies that insure their vehicles.
We encourage you to call us today for a free initial consultation. If you do not receive a monetary award as compensation for your medical bills, property damage, pain and suffering, and other expenditures, we don't get paid a single dollar.
Simon Bennett Robbins Oppenheim & Taft looks forward to speaking with you soon.
