New York has some of the most diverse, pristine, and picturesque roads on the east coast of the United States. Our wonderful state offers roads that travel through farmlands, mountain villages, city streets, beach communities, and much more. Motorcyclists from across the nation come to New York to enjoy what the state has to offer. Though the freedom of an open-air vehicle is enticing, motorcycles are inherently dangerous. Riders are vulnerable to a wide variety of severe injuries and even death.
Deregulation efforts on the part of the trucking industry over the last ten years means more truck drivers are driving longer hours than before. While increased driving hours ideally mean fewer trucks on the roads, additional changes intended to facilitate economic efficiency and reduce operating costs have resulted in increased pressure to deliver cargo sooner and faster. As a result, truck accidents due to excessive speeding or driver fatigue continue to seriously injure and kill other motorists at an alarming rate. At the Brooklyn law office of Weinstein, Chase, Messinger & Peters, P.C. we work closely with accident investigators in order to determine the cause of a truck accident.
Each year the fleet of 4,373 public buses operated by the New York City Transit Authority helps over 666 million passengers travel to and from NYC for work, errands, and tourism. While bus travel reduces the risks and annoyances of driving on congested city streets, passenger injuries can occur for many reasons, including falls experienced by unseated passengers during sudden stops, crashes with other vehicles or pedestrians caused by driver negligence or exhaustion, or drivers not subjected to appropriate background checks for driving history, and injuries incurred while getting on or off buses.
Bicycles represent a popular mode of transportation on crowded NYC streets, whether used by messengers, restaurant delivery workers, or anyone looking for a way to get around the city in a pleasant manner.

Almost 92 percent of bicyclist fatalities resulted from motor vehicle accidents, and the causes of 94 percent of those fatalities pertained to poor driving or bicycle riding practices. About 97 percent of all killed bicyclists wore no helmet.
