NEW JERSEY MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT INJURY LAWYERS
New Jersey Motorcycle Accident Victims Represented by Steadfast Attorneys
The ramifications of motorcycle accidents often end with destructive repercussions. Even if the accident is not fatal, it can cause significant injuries restricting the accident victim’s ability to work as well as the accumulation of significant medical bills related to the treatment of those injuries.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports in 2015, there were 4,976 motorcyclists killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes (the highest number since 2012) and an estimated 88,000 motorcyclists injured during the same time period. Alarmingly, motorcyclists accounted for 14 percent of all traffic fatalities, 4 percent of all people injured, 18 percent of all occupants (driver and passenger) fatalities, and 4 percent of all occupants injured. If you or someone you know has been injured while riding a motorcycle, it is critical to contact our New Jersey motorcycle accident attorneys who have the knowledge and resources available to hold the responsible parties accountable and ensure that the case is pursued properly.
Many times the motorcyclist is not at fault for the accident. Frequently, inexperienced or inattentive drivers of other motor vehicles, especially SUVs, tractor trailers and buses, fail to see the motorcyclist in their mirrors. In other instances, they may spot the motorcycle but not give them the proper space they are entitled to on the road. This scenario can cause the biker to get sandwiched between two vehicles during lane changes, curves of the road or turns. Weather and road factors, as well as defects of the motorcycle and driver error, also need to be taken into consideration.
When a motorcyclist is injured as a result of another’s negligence, they are entitled to compensation for physical and psychological injuries, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.
