New Jersey Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
New Jersey is a state full of motorcycle lovers. Unfortunately, the same reasons that riding a motorcycle is so appealing to so many is also the reason that it is so dangerous when there is an accident—there’s nothing closing the rider in and providing a layer of protection. Completely open, motorcycle riders are relatively defenseless when there is a crash which means that even a slow-moving collision that would barely injure a driver can be life-ending for a rider. At Sarofiem & Antoun LLC we know how to help injured riders recover financially following their New Jersey motorcycle crash. Take this important part of your recovery off your plate and give us a call today so we can get started working for you!
Common Causes of New Jersey Motorcycle Accidents
Some of the most common causes of New Jersey fatal and non-fatal motorcycle accidents include:
- Right of way violations: smaller to see, well over ½ of motorcycle accidents are a result of a larger vehicle (cars, trucks, etc.) turning into a rider that they simply did not see.
- Motorcycle error: there’s a reason the state requires motorcycle riders to get a separate license—riding a bike is completely different and much more dangerous than driving a sedan. Accident-causing rider errors happen all the time.
- Dangerous Road Conditions: When a car goes over a pothole, they may bust a tire but the safety of the car passengers is usually not in jeopardy. Conversely, motorcycle riders can suffer serious injuries or death when encountering a dangerous road condition that causes the rider to lose control and crash.
- Traffic: Anytime there’s traffic on a freeway or main city thoroughfare, the chance of an accident increases and even more so for motorcycle riders. Car and truck drivers don’t pay the requisite attention to the riders alongside them and because skidding is such a common part of an accident, riders can get into what feels like multiple series of accidents in one crash.
Not surprisingly, the physical injuries following a motorcycle accident look different than if you are in a car to car accident. Skin injuries, major leg and feet injuries, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries are all common injuries that motorcycle riders deal with following their crash and may never fully recover from. Seeing a doctor following your crash is imperative—this act will help with all aspects of your recovery, including your financial recovery. Healing from the wounds of a motorcycle accident takes time and money, we want to make sure we can help get you a financial settlement figure that allows for the best recovery (and more) possible.
How Do Motorcycle Accident Lawsuits Work?
Similar to a car accident personal injury claim, when you are filing a motorcycle accident lawsuit it is most commonly a claim against the responsible party’s insurance company. Because motorcycle road condition accidents are common as well, those suits are on much tighter filing timelines in filing against the city or state. Some of the things you can get financially compensated for in a winning motorcycle accident lawsuit are:
- Medical bills
- Future medical needs
- Physical therapy needs
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional recovery (including PTSD)
- Missed work
- Wrongful death
When valuing a motorcycle accident case, the goal is to get you paid for every aspect of your life that has been impacted by the accident. Our goal is to make sure that your value is maximized by presenting your strongest case possible.
