Skilled Legal Guidance from Goshen and New City Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Fighting for riders and their families
Many people who make motorcycles their vehicles of choice do so because of the freedom and excitement they provide. Others are swayed by the efficiency and practicality they offer. In either case, however, riders face unique challenges and heightened exposure to danger on the roads. As a respected personal injury law firm in Goshen and New City, New York for over 38 years, Burke, Miele, Golden & Naughton, LLP knows the special challenges that injured riders face in our legal system. We zealously fight for clients throughout the Hudson Valley area who are injured in motorcycle accidents and help them get the compensation they need to care for themselves and their families.
Why motorcycle accidents are different
Car accidents always have the potential to be severe. Unfortunately for motorcyclists, their exposure on the road means that motorcycle accidents are much more likely than car accidents to cause serious and long-term injuries. Even a collision that would have been fairly minor had it been between two cars can have dire consequences when it involves a motorcycle:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Traumatic amputations
- Neck injuries
- Orthopedic injuries
Many drivers simply do not know how to deal with motorcycles on the road. Others fail to be vigilant for their presence. As a result, motorcycles are particularly at risk to be involved in accidents with other vehicles, resulting in serious injuries. Having handled numerous motorcycle injury cases, our attorneys at Burke, Miele, Golden & Naughton, LLP know what to look for when evaluating these accidents and are adept at determining who is to blame. We understand that motorcycle accidents raise very specific and special issues, and we know how to address those issues in our clients’ favor.
