Motorcycle Accident Lawyer in White Plains

Ivey Barnum & O'Mara, LLC Serves Motorcycle Accident Victims in White Plains

All too often, when drivers fail to pay attention and share the road with motorcyclists, their negligence results in serious accidents. And unlike other cars, sedans, trucks, and SUVs, motorcycles lack the same safety features that can protect drivers in the event of an accident. Because motorcyclists will be much more exposed to the dangers of an accident, many will suffer serious to life-threatening injuries when involved in a crash or collision.

If you have been injured or have lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, it is important to discuss your legal options with an experienced White Plains motorcycle accident lawyer. Ivey Barnum & O'Mara, LLC is highly experienced in the area of personal injury and motorcycle accident cases and understands your need for legal guidance at this time. Our firm proudly represents victims throughout the New York metropolitan area, and in the Southwestern Connecticut areas.

What are New York State Motorcycle Laws?

In every state, there are different laws regarding the safety precautions that are necessary for every motorcycle driver. It is important to adhere to safety laws in order to keep other drivers safe from dangerous car accidents.

Motorcycle drivers in New York should keep the following laws in mind:

  • All motorcycle operators must wear approved eye protection
  • All motorcycle operators must wear approved helmets
  • The headlight and the rear light of the motorcycle must always be on when driving on the road
  • You must have a motorcycle operator’s license to operate a motorcycle in New York State
  • If you are from another state, you can operate a motorcycle in New York if you have a valid license from that state. If you are under 18 years of age, you must follow the laws for both states.
  • If you already have another class of driver license and a motorcycle permit, the DMV in New York State will waive your motorcycle road test. You must complete the Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s course for this to be waived.
  • Motorcycles must be inspected at least once every 12 months
  • Motorcycle registration lasts for one full year and all registration expires on April 30th
