Motorcycle Accidents

Representing clients after motorcycle accidents

In New Jersey, motorcycles are a popular mode of transportation and increasingly prevalent on the road, especially on our variety of scenic roadways. Motorcycling seems to attract the risk takers in search of the open road. With mountains, farmlands, beaches, and cities, New Jersey has something to offer every rider. It is hard to ignore that motorcycle accidents are much more dangerous than your regular automobile accidents. With little protection and high speeds, many motorcycle accidents end in disaster. Motorcycle injuries and deaths have steadily risen over the last 10 years. Motorcycles are fast and unpredictable. They can be difficult to follow, see, and avoid. Most motorcyclists know the risk and some thrive on it. As in most states, New Jersey has helmet laws. New Jersey requires all riders to wear a helmet when operating their vehicle. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, you could face serious injuries, including spinal cord damage, concussion, fractured bones, and much worse. If you have been involved in a motorcycle crash caused by the negligence of another driver, contact The Law Offices of Andrew S. Maze, Esq.

Negligence, serious injuries, and the lack of PIP

In most accidents, assigning negligence to the faulty party is no different when examining a motorcycle accident or an automobile accident. Operators of motorcycles and automobiles have to follow the same rules. Driving laws apply to both equally. Motorcycle accidents have some unique factors that differentiate them from other accidents. Motorcycle operators do not normally get the same injury benefits as people who operate a car. Automobile operators are covered under no-fault insurance coverage called personal injury protection (PIP). In New Jersey, PIP is coverage that assists insured drivers with medical bills and lost wages immediately after an accident with no regard for negligence or fault. Motorcyclists are usually excluded from having this coverage because of the inherent risk of operating these vehicles. In other words, insurance companies won’t usually cover motorcyclists because they would have to pay out too often. When a biker is injured because of the negligence of another, they may have to consider their legal rights. In order to construct a durable lawsuit, the rider will have to demonstrate serious injury and the negligence of the other driver before recovering damages. Without no-fault insurance, a motorcycle accident can leave the rider with a devastating financial situation directly after the incident. It is always important to contact an attorney to protect your rights and future.
