There are many motorcyclists on the road in Staten Island and throughout New York. There are also many drivers of conventional vehicles who are inattentive drivers and fail to give motorcyclists the adequate amount of room on the road and do not yield as they are supposed to. This can cause motorcycle accidents. Another issue that can lead to motorcycles crashes is distracted drivers. When combining the number of distracted drivers with motorcyclists, it is no surprise that there are accidents with injuries and fatalities. Researchers are examining this issue and trying to come with solutions to make the roads safer. Those who are on the road should pay attention to these potential solutions, as should people who were injured or lost a loved one in a motorcycle crash.
In Staten Island and across New York City, auto accidents are an unfortunate fact of daily life. These can come in many ways with crashes between vehicles, a vehicle crashing into a bicyclist, and pedestrian-auto accidents. All can cause injuries and death. For people who have been in these crashes, their lives can be radically changed with medical costs, lost wages and the need for long-term care. Families are often confronted with caring for a loved one who needs attention all day, every day. It can be a financial and personal hardship.
