Standing Up for Motorcycle Accident Victims

Blame the biker.

Those three simple words sum up the primary strategy that defendants and insurance companies use to try to avoid or minimize their responsibility to compensate motorcycle accident victims. It may be unfair. It may not be true. The important thing to know is that this strategy has worked with juries before.

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident near Catskill, New York, or a member of your family was — level the playing field with a personal injury attorney who knows how to fight back and win.

My name is John Kingsley, and as a trial lawyer with more than 40 years of experience, I have seen insurance companies make all kinds of unfair and untrue allegations against people who've been hurt through no fault of their own. The good news is that I can help you overcome the stereotype that says bikers are reckless, thrill-seeking individuals who don't follow the rules of the road.

Calculating the True Cost of Serious Injuries

Motorcycle accident victims are more likely to suffer permanent, life-changing injuries than auto accident victims. And those injuries often carry a large number of hidden medical and quality of life costs with them. I understand that fact and take great care in assessing the true costs of my clients' losses, working with appropriate medical and financial experts on an as-needed basis. As an advocate, I can help you recover full compensation for these common types of serious injuries:

  • Back injuries (herniated disks, impinged nerves)
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries (paralysis)
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Burn injuries (road rash)
  • Amputation injuries

I Also Take Care of Insurance Issues

A motorcyclist's own insurance company may be their own worst enemy after an accident. At my law firm, you'll have the guidance and forceful advocacy you need to get your insurer to pay any benefits owed to you under the terms of your uninsured and underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) policy.
