Leading New Jersey Injury Lawyers Represent Motorcycle Accident Victims in Bergen County
Motorcycle accidents unfortunately almost always result in serious injuries to the rider. Also unfortunate is the fact that the majority of motorcycle accidents are caused by someone in a larger car or truck. Despite the fact that motorcycles are smaller and more difficult to see, every driver’s legal duty includes safely sharing the roads with motorcycles. Neglecting that duty gives the accident victim the right to financial compensation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Motorcycle Accident Claims
New Jersey’s no-fault rule usually requires that you look to your car insurance policy first to pay for the cost of your medical treatment. However, traditional car insurance does not usually cover motorcycle accident injuries. Motorcycle insurance coverage of at least $15,000 in coverage is required, but that $15,000 limit is often insufficient to cover the costs of your treatment. We can help explore options for covering the costs of your medical bills, including, but not limited to, your health insurance or Medicare. Another insurance issue is evaluating the uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage you have purchased for your motorcycle and cars.
Yes. Under New Jersey comparative negligence rules, you can recover at least partial compensation as long as you were not more than 50 percent at-fault for the crash. Your compensation award will be reduced in proportion to the amount of fault assigned to you. In cases involving comparative negligence, or comparative fault, it is especially important to have an experienced lawyer by your side to make a strong argument for your right to the most possible compensation.
New Jersey requires riders to wear DOT-approved helmets. Failing to wear a helmet may not entirely foreclose your right to compensation, however. Depending upon the specific facts of your case, our injury lawyers may be able to make a case for compensation even if you failed to wear a helmet.
Motorcycle accident cases are similar to car accident cases but there are some differences when it comes to how insurance applies for the driver of the motorcycle. Most motorcycle insurance policies have very limited insurance coverage. So we have to look at health insurance, potentially another car insurance, as well as the other driver’s insurance and it can be very complex. When a client hires our firm for personal injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident, which are usually severe, permanent, and often tragic, they can expect that we are going to investigate every aspect of that accident to make sure we understand how the accident happened so that we can explain how the accident happened to the insurance company, defense attorney, a judge, or a jury.
