Queens Motorcycle Accident Lawyer NYC

If you’ve had a motorcycle accident, you need an attorney that knows motorcycle accident law inside and out.   Injuries are often severe and deaths are all too common, plus the laws are different for motorcycles than other types of motor vehicles.   Adding to the challenges, there is the perception that motorcyclists are daredevils that do not obey traffic laws.  Additionally, motorcycle cases are complicated, with some special laws and regulations that apply only to motorcycle accidents. We have been representing motorcyclists for more than 60 years, so we know everything about how to handle your case.
