Hackensack Bicycle Accident Injury Attorneys
New Jersey Bike Crash Injuries Lawyer
A bicycle accident often results in serious injuries such as a traumatic brain injury (TBI), fractures, facial lesions or neck injuries. While the first concern is of course for the medical well-being of the victim, the question arises as to what sources of compensation will cover medical bills and lost wages.
Often, bicycle accidents occur in intersections, in collisions with cars, trucks or motorcycles, or even because of the sudden opening of car doors. A child on a bicycle, scooter or skateboard may be overlooked because of careless driving on the part of a negligent motorist. While representatives of whoever hit the child in the crosswalk may claim that part of the responsibility lies with the child, New Jersey law does not. In our state, comparative negligence principles do not apply to children under age 7. People who use roadways are expected to exercise their duty of care — and that includes a responsibility to watch out for skateboarders and bicyclists.
