Why Are Motorcycle Accident Cases Hard To Prove?
Motorcycle accident cases are difficult because of the bias that so many jurors feel towards motorcyclists. Itâ€™s important to hire a lawyer who has experience with motorcycle accident trials and settlements who knows how to navigate these complex cases.
Do I Have No Fault Insurance If Iâ€™m In A NYC Motorcycle Accident?
When a passenger or driver of a motorcycle is injured in an accident in New York, no fault insurance is not available. This means that the money for medical bills will not be covered by anyoneâ€™s automobile or motorcycle insurance. The medical bills would be paid for by private insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid.
The flip side of this is that an injured motorcyclist, or passenger on a motorcycle, does not have to meet the requirements of New Yorkâ€™s serious injury threshold to get money for pain and suffering. The at fault party is on the hook, even if the injuries would never make threshold. Even if you have very minor injuries, the at fault partyâ€™s insurance company will almost always pay something.
