Motorcyclists do not have the same amount of protection that other drivers have. When a motorcycle hits a car, truck or commercial vehicle, the level of impact on the cyclist is much higher than on those who are protected by the outer shell of a vehicle. Safety equipment is important for riders and should be word properly.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle crash that was caused by another negligent driver or negligent party, our law firm will seek the full amount of compensation for your injuries.

The Importance of Safety Equipment
In New York, motorcycle accidents and safety equipment are two elements that often go hand in hand. Motorcyclists should be aware of the importance of safety equipment and understand the dangers of failing to wear appropriate gear while riding.
Manufacturers of safety equipment for motorcycles must take into consideration that a rider is not protected in the same way that a driver of a car is. Bikers do not have seat belts or the protection of a vehicle to lessen the impact in the event of a crash, so protective equipment is of the utmost importance. Safety equipment that should always be worn includes helmets, safety gloves and more.
Holding Parties Accountable
Motorcycle accidents usually result in catastrophic injuries or fatalities. If you have suffered significant injuries because of another person's negligence, you deserve representation from a legal team that will take an aggressive approach to protecting your rights. At Keogh Crispi, P.C., we have the skills and resources to conduct a full investigation to determine who is liable for the accident and hold those parties accountable. We are experienced at handling accidents caused by poor road design, defective motorcycle equipment, negligent drivers and more.
