Far too many motorcyclists operate under the assumption that if they were injured in a motorcycle accident, they were at least partly responsible for their injuries due to assuming the risk of riding a motorcycle in the first place. As such, many feel that they do not deserve compensation for their injuries. Nothing could be further from the truth, however. If you were injured in a motorcycle accident because of the recklessness or negligence of another party, you may deserve to be compensated by the party responsible for your unnecessary suffering.
The team at Hach & Rose, LLP, recently helped a motorcycle injury victim secure over $8 million for her losses, and we are ready to put this experience to work for you.

A grave vehicular accident in Saratoga Springs, New York on Sunday night, August 25, resulted in the death of one person. The accident, which involved two motorcycles and a sport utility vehicle, happened at around 10:30 p.m. on Route 9 South at the intersection of the East/West Road of the State Park.
The driver one of the motorcycles was declared dead after being taken to Saratoga Hospital.
The Saratoga Springs Police Department, who had to conduct accident reconstruction, which lead to the Route 9 traffic being reduced to a single lane at least until after 2:30 a.m. on Monday, August 26, were conducting investigations into the circumstances leading to the crash.
A traffic accident claimed the life of a motorcyclist and his passenger after they were struck by another vehicle on the New York State Thruway Sunday, June 2, at around 1:10 a.m.
Police officials said 23-year-old Valley Stream resident Rafaelito de Jesus, who was driving a Suzuki motorcycle and had with him 25-year-old Mineola resident Melissa Rupa, was heading north on the Thruway when another vehicle hit them near Exit 16 in Woodbury.
Both de Jesus and Rupa were declared dead on the scene of the accident by responding medical emergency professionals.
Meanwhile, the unharmed and unidentified perpetrator has been charged with vehicular homicide and driving while intoxicated.
Police are conducting further investigations to determine the cause of the crash.
Many people think that motorcycles are very dangerous. In fact, regardless of who is at fault, if a person is injured in a motorcycle accident, many think the injured party should not be compensated because they assume the risk of injury when they get on the bike. I DISAGREE! People have the legal right to drive motorcycles and if injured due to the negligence of someone else on the road, that person should be held responsible.
The rules of the road apply to all and motorcycle drivers should be protected. Importantly, in New York motorcyclists are not entitled to no fault benefits for their medical expenses and lost wages. This makes a personal injury claim all the more important. At Hach & Rose, LLP, we have achieved a jury verdict of over 8 million dollars for a woman injured on a motorcycle. We have achieved a settlement of 1.7 million dollars for a motorcyclist injured in an accident. We fight for those injured on motorcycles due to the negligent conduct of others.
