Motorcycle Crashes in New Jersey
Motorcycle collisions are very devastating events that often affect the rider and their family members. In New Jersey, more than 50 people are killed annually while riding their motorcycles and hundreds more will suffer serious injuries. Speed is a leading factor in motorcycle accidents. In many cases, however, it is not the motorcyclist who is at fault. Negligent drivers who fail to see or yield to riders contribute to more than half of all New Jersey motorcycle collisions.
Your rights following a New Jersey motorcycle accident will depend upon many factors. However, if the other driver was completely or even partially at fault for the crash, you could be entitled to compensation. Many motorcycle crashes in the Garden State lead to serious injuries, so it is important to have an attorney working for you as soon as possible.
The insurance company is often not interested in making a fair settlement offer to injured victims. Insurance adjusters have several tactics to delay and deny legitimate claims.
