Let Our Motorcycle Accident Attorneys Build a Compelling Case Based on Your Huntington, NY  Crash

Our auto accident lawyers know what it takes to hold an at-fault driver legally responsible for a Long Island motorcycle accident. We identify the driver, document their negligence, and seek compensation for our clients.

Some driving behaviors can significantly increase the risk of a motorcycle crash. While these behaviors are not the direct cause of the collision, and we do not need to prove they occurred to recover compensation, they could play a key role in your case. They include:

  • Impaired Driving: Drunk or drugged driving causes a driver to make poor choices and have a slowed reaction time. Impaired driving often plays a role in motorcycle collisions, especially at night and on weekends.
  • Distracted Driving: Drivers who do not have their full attention on the road might overlook a smaller vehicle, such as a motorcycle. Distractions can be physical, visual, or mental. Smartphones are a common cause of in-vehicle distractions.
  • Speeding: When drivers exceed the posted speed, they have less time to react to motorcycles. Driving too fast for conditions can also make it difficult to stop in time to avoid a crash.

To hold a driver responsible for a motorcycle crash on Long Island, we must show they acted negligently. There are four necessary elements of negligence:

  1. Duty of Care: The driver had a responsibility to do or not do something, usually based on traffic law.
  2. Breach of Duty: The driver failed to uphold the duty of care.
  3. Causation: The driver’s breach of duty caused the crash.
  4. Harm: The victim suffered physical, emotional, and financial harm.

We must identify the action or inaction that directly led to a crash to hold the at-fault driver responsible. Some common ways negligent drivers cause motorcycle accidents include:

  • Failure to yield when making a left turn
  • Failure to clear an adjacent lane before moving into it
  • Pulling out in front of them
  • Opening a door into the travel lane when parallel parked
