A Brooklyn Motorcycle Accident Attorney Who Fights for You
More people are riding motorcycles in Brooklyn than ever before. Unfortunately, motorcycles offer very little protection from the hazards facing a motorcyclist on the roadways of Brooklyn. This can often lead to severe injuries to motorcyclists when an accident occurs.
The roads in Brooklyn can be very dangerous, especially for motorcyclists. Most accidents occur at intersections due to driver inattention at stop signs and red lights. With more and more cars on the Brooklyn roadways, there is more danger for the motorcyclist. Many of the Brooklyn streets are full of potholes and broken pavement which creates an obstacle course for the motorcyclist. The most common places for motorcycle accidents in Brooklyn are Flatbush Ave., Adams Street, Coney Island Ave., Ocean Ave., Bedford Ave., Nostrand Ave., Utica Ave., Bay Parkway, Stilwell Ave., Linden Blvd., Grand Army Plaza, 7th Ave., and 5th Ave. All are major roadways with heavy automobile traffic.
