The motorcycle accident attorneys at Fishbeyn & Briskin have extensive experience representing motorcycle riders involved in accidents in New York and New Jersey. When we say motorcycle riders, we also mean people injured while riding scooters, mopeds, and motorized bicycles. Not only do we represent the drivers of motorcycles, mopeds, scooters, and motorized bicycles, but we also represent their passengers.
Unfortunately, motorcycle, moped, scooter, drivers and passengers often suffer very serious injuries as a result of accidents. The injuries sustained can range from brain, back and neck injuries to paralysis, broken bones, dismemberment, road rash, facial injuries, burns and even death. We have seen severe injuries result from high speed accidents and even low speed accidents. Often times the accidents result in permanent injuries which significantly impact the lifestyle, ability to earn an income and even ability to support oneself, not to mention the ability to conduct daily activities as simple as personal hygiene.
One of the largest obstacles facing motorcycle riders involved in accidents in NY and NJ is that their insurance policy does not have a provision for No-Fault coverage or Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits. What does this mean to the motorcycle rider involved in an accident? This means that you will not have insurance coverage for medical expenses incurred as you are treated for your injuries. More than likely, your claims for treatment would have to be processed through your primary care or major medical insurance provider. These expenses for medical treatment which are often quite high when dealing with people injured in motorcycle accidents can be included as part of your claim against the personal responsible for the accident. In the event you do not have insurance, you may be eligible for Charity Care or you may be able to receive treatment with a doctor who will agree to treat you so long as the cost of his treatments is protected by executing a Lien or Letter of Protection which essentially states that the we as your attorneys are obligated to settle all of the doctors bills arising out of his treatment of you, prior to disbursing money to you, the injured motorcycle rider.
