SOHO New York City Motorcycle Accident Attorney
When a motorcycle accident occurs, the likelihood of the rider or passenger escaping injury is very slim. Motorcyclists and their passengers only have their helmet and protective gear to help them. And while helmets have significantly reduced the number of traumatic brain injuries, they simply don't offer complete protection, especially if they are of poor quality in the first place.
Motorcycles do not have the benefit of no-fault insurance protection, which means there is no mechanism for having your medical bills paid. And while high-quality helmets are helpful in averting physical harm, they do not and cannot prevent any and all injuries. Brain injuries can occur and can be serious, changing a person's life forever in a flash.
Serious Injuries are More Likely in Motorcycle Crashes
When a motorcycle accident occurs in Soho, New York City, many different types of injuries can happen. Fractured bones, cuts and scrapes, internal injuries, spinal and neck injuries and sometimes even traumatic brain injuries can result from a motorcycle crash. Spine and brain injuries may be the worst, having life changing effects including paralysis, reduced ability to engage in appropriate reasoning and motor skill deficit. Head injuries that may occur as the result of a motorcycle crash include:
- Concussion – Brain tissue that is damaged by a severe impact, delivered at a high speed can result in significant memory loss, terrible headaches, nausea, dizziness and even fine motor skill deficits.
- Hematoma – Blood clotting in the epidural area between the brain and the skull is the result of hematoma. Surgery is usually necessary. Symptoms may not present for weeks following the crash.

Knowledgeable and very professional. He explained everything in a way that I was able to make a very important decision. I would use his services again in the future should the need arise.
What to Do After a Motorcycle Crash
If you are involved in a motorcycle accident in Soho, whether or not another vehicle is involved, you should immediately call 911 and seek immediate medical treatment. You may have suffered debilitating injuries even if you are not in pain. Photographing the scene can prove invaluable later so try and do so if you can. Convey as much information as possible to the authorities. Don't admit fault to try and make peace. If you make statements that seem to indicate that the accident was your fault, or that you contributed to the happening of the accident, insurance companies will not feel bad for you and they will use your statements against you – insurance companies and their barrels of money have no feelings. Insurance companies have zero (0) interest in making you whole and compensating you for your injuries.
