Fighting for the rights of New York motorcycle accident victims

Spring is on the horizon, and so, too, is motorcycle riding season. As fun as riding a motorcycle can be, though, it can also be dangerous. This is especially true when drivers of automobiles or other large vehicles act negligently. For example, they may fail to yield to a motorcyclist who has the right away, they may run a red light or they may change lanes into a motorcyclist. When these circumstances exist, a tragic motorcycle accident can occur.

Motorcycle crash victims who suffer a catastrophic injury in a car accident often face significant hardship in the wreck's aftermath. Most obviously, their physical well-being can be jeopardized, and the pain they may experience may be excruciating. Medical expenses can ruin an individual's financial livelihood. In addition, many motorcycle accident victims are unable to work for a given period of time, meaning that they will likely face lost wages.

The victims can, of course, pursue a personal injury lawsuit in hopes of recovering compensation. However, these claims are often aggressively challenged since the stakes can be quite high. Defendants who may be facing the reality of having to pay tens of thousands of dollars in damages, or more, oftentimes seek out competent defense attorneys who will aggressively push back against a victim's claim.

At Chiariello & Chiariello, our attorneys know the tactics often used by defense attorneys and adjust our clients' legal strategies accordingly. We may be able to draw a defense witness's testimony into question and make legal arguments to try to convince a judge to deny evidence proffered by the defense. This requires knowledge of the law and the rules that apply to trial practice and evidence, but these are matters that we competently handle.

The bottom line is that motorcycle accident victims need relief. At our firm, we do everything in our power to ensure our clients have the skill, aggressiveness and passion needed to succeed on their claim and recover compensation for their damages.
