A frightening trend on the roads is the increase in motorcycle rider fatalities. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation's Fatality Analysis Reporting System, they have increased by large percentages over the past two decades. This trend is caused by inattentive car drivers, often distracted by texting and cell phones. Motorcyclists injured or killed by these distracted drivers deserve justice and need to be compensated. New York Courts, however, can be resistant to permitting a plaintiff to obtain a defendant driver's cellular telephone and texting data, even in accidents involving fatalities. Ansa Assuncao has successfully fought that trend and forced car drivers to release their cell-phone records after fatal vehicle accidents. (D'Alessandro v. NUMC, et al., 137 A.D.3d 1195 (Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Second Department, New York, 2016.)
Our motorcycle accident lawyers are skilled in handling all types of motorcycle accident cases, including those caused by a driver's inattention, failure to properly check their mirrors and blind spot and failure to yield when the motorcyclist has the right of way. We also handle cases where a motorcyclist is injured because of accidents caused by construction sites, debris in the roadway and improperly designed or manufactured motorcycles.
Motorcycle accident cases require a post-accident investigation and, in many instances, expert analysis. Ansa Assuncao has the forensic team in place to reconstruct your motorcycle accident and a staff that has the skill and resources to investigate the accident scene within hours before the critical evidence disappears. To protect your rights and make certain that you recover all the damages you are entitled to, Ansa Assuncao attorneys will investigate the accident scene, preserve and catalog the critical road evidence, analyze the type of motorcycle and other vehicle(s) involved, and present the information to a jury using the most sophisticated computer-animated reconstruction expert analysis available.
Ansa Assuncao closely coordinates with sophisticated teams of motorcycle accident reconstruction experts, who utilize the foremost computer technology available to render realistic and compelling computer animation and 3-D Modeling. The result is that the story of how your motorcycle accident happened can be proven to a jury with documented analysis of all available road evidence -- skid marks, yaw marks, debris, gouge marks and fluid (oil, gas, and radiator fluid) stains.
