It should come as no surprise to you that Staten Island motorcyclists face a number of dangers on the highway. Motorcycles are smaller and have less protective casing than passenger vehicles, making other drivers less likely to see them on the road. Gravel, uneven road surfaces and other debris may not affect larger vehicles, but they can play a major role in a motorcycle accident. Motorcycle accidents can result in more serious injuries than other accidents due to the riders' lack of protection.
Once you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, you may be experiencing a number of problems. Many motorcyclists have to deal with the fact that their bike has been totaled or seriously damaged. More importantly, many people suffer serious injuries and are unable to go to work and earn the money to pay their medical bills.
