How New York’s No-Fault Laws Affect Motorcyclists
New York law requires auto insurance to cover medical expenses regardless of fault. However, these no-fault benefits do not apply in motorcycle accidents.
That means it can be an uphill battle to secure the compensation you need.

Frequently Asked Questions About Albany & Saratoga Springs Motorcycle Accident Cases
Here are some of the most common questions we hear from people affected by motorcycle accidents:
How long do I have to file a motorcycle accident lawsuit in New York?
While New Yorkers have up to three years to file an injury claim after a motorcycle accident, now is the best time to file a claim. The sooner the accident is investigated, the sooner a lawsuit can be commenced, and you will receive the compensation you deserve. Waiting too long can make it harder to prove your case and get the full compensation you deserve.
How much compensation can you get for a motorcycle accident?
The answer depends on many factors, including the severity of your injuries and expenses, and their impact on your life. Motorcycle accidents often cause serious injuries such as broken bones, back and neck injuries, head injuries and long-term disability. The medical bills quickly add up in these cases.
It is highly recommended that you do not accept any offer of settlement from an insurance company without first talking to a lawyer, since that offer is likely to be far less than what you deserve.
How much will it cost to hire an attorney for my motorcycle accident injury claim?
Many people are worried about the cost of an attorney after a motorcycle crash but are relieved to learn that they do not have to pay their attorney unless they receive a settlement. This is known as a contingent fee arrangement and enables you to not have to worry about paying legal fees while you recover from your injuries.
