Motorcycle Accidents and Negligence in Downtown NYC
Because motorcycles are without the various safety features that other vehicles on the road have, motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to significant injuries when an accident happens. No seatbelts, no airbags and no metal frame for protection.
All of this makes motorcyclists more susceptible to serious injuries in the unfortunate event of an accident. If you're involved in a crash, call Downtown NYC motorcycle accident lawyer Michael J. Redenburg to get the wheels of justice moving for you!
The Reasons That Motorcycle Accidents Occur in Downtown NYC
Downtown NYC is a densely populated metropolis with a fast pace and all types of vehicles, as well as pedestrians, moving swiftly year-round. Motorcycles are more likely to be involved in an accident than other passenger vehicles because motorcycles, due to their design and lack of external protection for riders, are more susceptible to hazardous roads and weather conditions. There are many risks for motorcyclists on the road. But the greatest danger is ultimately from other drivers and motorists. Many of these motorcycle accidents are due to risky driving behaviors. These behaviors include:
- Drowsy driving;
- Distracted driving;
- Driving while intoxicated;
- Unsafe turning;
- Not yielding the right-of-way;
- Disobeying traffic signs; and
- Dangerous lane changes.
Why Are Motorcycle Accidents in Downtown NYC So Deadly?
Motorcycle operators are taught to be intensely aware of their surroundings at all times. They should always be on the lookout for danger when operating their motorcycles. Usually, the drivers of cars and trucks are not always as careful of the motorcyclists who share the roads with these much bigger vehicles. It's easy for others upon the roadways to fail to observe a motorcyclist. This can result in a driver merging into a motorcyclist's lane and striking them, causing serious injuries.
THERE ARE SPECIFIC SEVERE INJURIES THAT ARE MORE COMMON THAN OTHERS IN MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS, WHICH INCLUDE:
- Brain Injuries, or TBI;
- Spinal cord injuries;
- The need for Surgery;
- Deep wounds;
- Soft tissue injuries; and
- Burn Injuries
