A broadside accident is commonly referred to as a T-bone crash and involves the front end of one vehicle striking the side of another vehicle. Any broadside motorcycle accident is likely to involve serious injuries to the rider.
Motorcyclists have very limited protection. A collision in which the motorcycle is struck in the side by another vehicle puts the motorcyclist at risk of harm. Even when the motorcycle strikes another vehicle, the motorcycle rider may be thrown from the bike into the side of the vehicle or onto the pavement and sustain injuries.
If you suffered severe injuries or your loved one has been killed in a T-bone motorcycle accident in Long Island, you will want to consult with a Long Island motorcycle accident attorney about your legal rights. Insurance companies often try to blame motorcyclists for causing crashes, even when the other motorist was at fault. Insurers try to pay as little as possible to resolve injury claims.
