We wish, above all else, to extend our deepest sympathies and utmost compassion to the loved ones of Christopher Kruzicki during this tragic time. A New York motorcycle accident will often result in devastation, and we understand that very well.
The investigation will focus on several possible reasons for this accident such as medical issues with the victim, excessive speed, intoxication, mechanical failure, or the involvement of another party. In the event that someone else may have forced the victim to crash, there will likely be grounds for a New York personal injury claim available to the family members of the victim. Similarly, if mechanical failure is at fault, the victims’ family may have a lawsuit against the manufacturer. The important thing to understand that is that you have rights.
