The number of casualties due to motorcycle accidents in NYC has soared in recent years.

More than 1.2 million people received emergency medical care for a motorcycle accident between 2009 and 2015, and almost 25,000 people died as a result of motorcycle accidents in that same period.

Younger adults were at the highest risk of dying or being injured in a crash, and the consequences can be life altering. If you have been in a motorcycle accident, Oliveri & Schwartz, P.C. will fight for the compensation to which you are entitled and can help you get your life back on track.

Motorcyclists are far more likely to be injured or killed while riding than any other group of roadway users. More than 3,000 motorcyclists in New York City are involved in crashes every year, per the Department of Transportation.

Motorcyclists are uniquely vulnerable due on our roads, but safe driving habits and proper personal protection can reduce the risk. Unfortunately, you cannot avoid all roadway dangers, and drivers who fail to yield the right of way, are distracted or are aggressive can all threaten your life, well-being and livelihood.

We have helped motorcyclists who have suffered as a result of equipment failure, dangerous road conditions, sudden lane changes, tailgating and other common causes of accidents. We can help you too.

Experience Matters

New York City motorcycle accident lawyer Paul F. Oliveri and his skilled legal team at Oliveri & Schwartz, P.C. understand the unique needs of motorcyclists.

We have seen firsthand how bikers are often easily overlooked by other roadway users and many times fail to get respect or consideration from other drives. We have also seen the long road that may be ahead of cyclists who are hurt or have lost loved ones in a crash.

We take our real-life experiences and use them to build strong cases for our clients and their loved ones.
Suffering as a result of a motorcycle accident can be devastating, and you need someone who is strong, tough and ready to advocate for your interests and fight for your rights.

Free and Convenient Consultations

Insurance companies may contact you immediately after the crash, but agreeing to any kind of compensation, admitting fault or even just talking to them could keep you from getting the compensation you deserve.

No Excuses

Negligence and recklessness are among the most common causes of motorcycle crashes. Car and truck drivers often claim they failed to see the motorcyclist they hit. They may even try to deflect blame onto the motorcyclist.

We will hold the responsible party or parties accountable for your injuries or loss, even if the accident was a result of a defective bike part, poor road conditions or other factors outside your control.
