Helping The Injured Throughout Central New York
Many people in Syracuse and throughout Central New York love riding motorcycles. But motorcyclists face a greater risk on the road. Many drivers don't look out for them or treat them as a nuisance. The result is an accident that can result in serious injuries. The motorcycle accident attorneys at Cherundolo Law Firm, PLLC help the injured recover financial compensation.
Motorcyclists have very little protection on the road, so the injuries they suffer in an accident can be very severe. Catastrophic injuries-such as traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injuries-can leave victims permanently disabled, and they can require lifelong care. In addition to being physically and emotionally devastating, these injuries also have a very big financial impact.
There are different types of motorcycle accidents, including:
- Hit by a car turning in front of the motorcycle
- Rear-ended by a car
- Forced off the road
- Hit by a car door that suddenly opens
Motorcycle accidents typically happen because another driver failed to look for motorcycles on the road or drove recklessly near them. Our firm holds these negligent drivers accountable.
Fighting for your rights
Motorcyclists have a bad reputation with insurance companies that is completely undeserved. They have this idea that people who ride motorcycles are somehow irresponsible and reckless. In fact, most motorcyclists are very responsible on the road. But the stereotype makes getting fair compensation from insurance companies an uphill battle.
The motorcycle accident lawyers at Cherundolo Law Firm know how insurance companies operate, as well as how they view motorcycle accident claims. That's why we do our own investigation into your accident. We know where to look for evidence that the other driver was negligent. We review all relevant documents, talk to witnesses and if needed, consult experts.
We build the strongest case possible and show the insurance company we are serious about getting you the compensation you deserve. Many times, this gets the insurance company to agree to negotiate, and we are able to work out a settlement that meets your needs. But if they won't settle, our skilled attorneys are ready to fight for you in court.
