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