Motorcycle Accident Attorney

In an instant, a motorcycle accident can cause life-changing physical harm, financial distress, and even the loss of a loved one. 

To make matters worse, motorcyclists are subjected to unfair stigma. Insurance companies and courts often blame victims for their harm. 

The motorcycle accident attorneys at Levine & Slavit have spent generations representing Manhattan, NY, victims and won millions doing so. 

Motorcyclists Face Lethal Risks Especially in New York City


Just 2% of NYC's registered vehicles are motorcycles. However, motorcyclists suffer a full 14% of the city's fatal motorcycle accidents. Here in the city, the fatal crash rate for motorcyclists is nearly double what it is statewide. 

What We Can Recover For You

Sometimes, victims do not pursue a motorcycle accident claim because they are unaware of the many categories they can receive compensation for. These can include:

  • Lost Wages
  • Property Damage
  • Medical Expenses
  • Loss of Companionship
  • Lessened Earning Capacity
  • Emotional Pain & Suffering

Unlike many states, New York does not have a limit on the amount of compensation victims can receive in personal injury or wrongful death cases. 

Our Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Charge Nothing Upfront

Our attorneys are deeply attuned to the vast suffering a motorcycle crash can cause. We refuse to burden motorcycle accident victims with additional attorney's fees. We start each case with a 100% free consultation.

We then handle your injury claim on a contingency basis. This means that if we take on your case, we will charge absolutely nothing unless we win. This arrangement allows you to focus on recovery and ensures that our priority is obtaining the maximum compensation possible on your behalf.

Manhattan Can Rely On Our Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

There are not enough good words to say about this firm...Ira Slavit is very professional and very responsive...If he could not get back to you right away, he always had one of the staff call us..but I usually spoke to him or Leonard Slavit, and they always were able to explain what I needed to know at that time. They stood up for us and did a very good job.. Elena Dicanio, 5-Star Google Review

You Can Receive Compensation Even If You Were Partially At Fault

Some motorcycle crash victims forgo pursuing a lawsuit because they caused a portion of their accident. In some states, this would make them ineligible to receive compensation – but not in New York. 

Our state operates under comparative negligence laws. This means that you can receive compensation even if you were partially responsible for your crash. The amount of compensation varies based on how much you are found to have contributed to the accident. 

There Are Many Causes  For a Motorcycle Accident

Not all motorcycle accidents are caused by other drivers.

Your crash may have been caused by a defective motorcycle part. Our attorneys have achieved multiple six-figure settlements in cases involving defective products. 

Negligence by the government is another potential cause. For example, if your municipality failed to maintain safe roadways, they can be held liable for your injuries.

Over decades in practice, we have honed our ability to determine the causes of accidents. Talk to us for free so we can evaluate your potential case.

Another Great Testimonial From Manhattan

I am writing to thank you for the excellent job you did on my personal injury case. Your kindness and professionalism helped me feel at ease throughout the process. Now that the case is finally over, I just wanted to send you this note to express my appreciation of all of your hard work and efforts. Thank you again and I wish you continued success in the future. Pearl S.

You Can Help Improve Your Chances

Suffering from a motorcycle accident can feel overwhelming. Physical injuries, financial losses, and an inability to work make some victims feel powerless. You should know there are several steps you can take to help you win your case:

Preserve Evidence

Hard evidence is invaluable for proving harm and attaining maximum compensation. Any photos or videos you may have should be saved, duplicated on multiple devices, and sent to our attorneys. Even pictures or footage you may not find relevant should be sent to us. Our Manhattan motorcycle accident lawyers have spent decades winning these cases. This allows us to find value in evidence that may not be obvious to you. 

Avoid Admissions

A motorcycle crash can be traumatic and jarring. It is natural to want to apologize to the other driver, even if you did nothing wrong. This is a critical mistake. Any admission or even statement you make can be used against you. Insurance companies may also reach out to try and obtain out-of-context statements to use against you. Stay silent and allow our seasoned motorcycle accident lawyers to do the talking for you. 

Attend Appointments

You should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Your health is paramount. Motor vehicle accidents are notorious for causing injuries that are not immediately apparent. Seeking out medical care also generates medical bills and records that are crucial for receiving proper compensation. Not attending appointments may be used as evidence that you were not actually harmed in your crash.
