Motorcycle Accidents Cause Severe Injuries on Roads & Highways in New Jersey

Make no mistake about it, when a motorcycle collides with another motor vehicle, whether a car, truck, bus or even another bike, the resulting injuries can be catastrophic for a motorcycle rider on South Jersey roads such as the New Jersey Turnpike, the Garden State Parkway, routes 295, 70, 38 or 42, or the Atlantic City Expressway. Simply put, that’s because automobiles, tractor trailers and commercial trucks or school buses are so much bigger and heavier than a motorcycle. , Also, motorcyclists are not protected by tons of metal like other motor vehicle drivers.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported that almost 5,000 people died as a result of biker crashes in 2013 (the most recent year of compiled statistics ). Approximately 90,000 more people were seriously injured in collisions involving motorcycles. While those numbers reflect all the bikers, drivers and passengers involved in those motorcycle accidents, the NHTSA maintains motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to be killed in a crash and five times more likely to be seriously hurt than the occupants of another motor vehicle.

When motorcycle accidents happen in Mercer, Ocean and Monmouth counties, the resulting catastrophic injuries may require significant medical treatment, including surgeries, ongoing rehabilitation, possibly permanent disability and even wrongful death. Injuries can include traumatic brain injuries, spinal, neck and head trauma, broken bones, cuts, lacerations, amputations, internal injuries including severe bleeding, paralysis and more.

Motorcycle Accidents Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ: I had a motorcycle accident. What should I do?

After seeking medical attention for any injuries you sustained in a motorcycle accident, there are several steps to take that will prove useful in a personal injury claim. Contact the police to report the accident and obtain the contact information for the other drivers, passengers, and witnesses at the scene of the accident. Document the accident scene by taking photos of all the vehicles involved in the accident, the damage to the motorcycle and other vehicles, road conditions, traffic signs, and any injuries you suffered. Until you can consult with an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer, it is important that you do not discuss any details of the accident with others, do not admit any level of fault, and do not sign any documents provided by the insurance provider. Schedule a complimentary consultation with a motorcycle accident attorney at The Law Offices of Andres & Berger, P.C. to ascertain what type of compensation you can reasonably expect to receive.

FAQ: What kind of compensation am I eligible to receive for my motorcycle accident?

When someone is injured in an accident that was caused by negligence, the injured party can recover compensation for their losses. This may include compensation for medical expenses that are the result of the accident, pain and suffering, rehabilitative costs, future medical treatment costs due to the accident, lost wages, loss of enjoyment, and property damage. Keep in mind that if you share some level of responsibility for the accident, the total compensation you receive will be reduced by an amount that reflects your level of fault.

FAQ: The other driver’s insurance company offered me a settlement for my motorcycle accident. Should I take it?

It is not unusual to receive an initial settlement offer from the other party’s insurance company when you have been involved in an accident. Afterall, the insurance company wants to satisfy your claim as quickly as possible with the lowest possible compensation for your injuries. Initial settlements are rarely the best offers on the table and, in many cases, these settlement offers do not factor in additional expenses such as rehabilitative costs, surgical procedures, additional lost income, and other losses. Before you consider a settlement for your motorcycle accident, consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer who will evaluate your case and advise the best course of action.

FAQ: Am I legally required to wear a motorcycle helmet in New Jersey?

In the state of New Jersey, motorcyclists are legally required to wear a helmet that has been approved by the Department of Transportation. Specifically, New Jersey’s motorcycle helmet law states: “No person shall operate or ride upon a motorcycle unless he wears a securely fitted protective helmet of a size proper for that person and of a type approved by the director. Such a helmet must be equipped with either a neck or chin strap and be reflectorized on both sides thereof.” New Jersey’s motorcycle helmet law applies to everyone who is riding a motorcycle, whether they are a driver or passenger, and regardless of age.

FAQ: If I wasn’t wearing a motorcycle helmet when I had the accident, can I still recover damages?

Because it is required by law to wear a motorcycle helmet in New Jersey, if you have a motorcycle accident and are not wearing a helmet, you are in violation of the state’s law. This violation may have a negative impact on your personal injury claim. New Jersey follows modified comparative negligence rules when the injured victim is also partially responsible for the accident. Under these rules, if it is determined that you are at least somewhat responsible for your injuries — by not wearing a helmet, for example — then your compensation will be reduced by an amount that is equal to your level of fault.

FAQ: I have medical insurance; will that limit the compensation I can receive from a personal injury claim?

No. Your medical insurance coverage is not a factor in a personal injury claim and has no impact on the compensation you may recover. However, if your health insurance provider has paid to treat your injuries, they may require that you reimburse them in full or in part from the settlement you receive.

FAQ: Is there a time limit for filing a motorcycle accident claim?

Yes. It is important to note that every state has legal deadlines for filing a civil claim in the state’s courts, called the statute of limitations. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years from the time the accident occurred. If you are considering filing a claim for your motorcycle accident, it is critical that you pay attention to the calendar. If you do not file your personal injury claim within the two-year timeframe, the courts will dismiss your case and your opportunity to recover any compensation for your injuries will be lost.

FAQ: Do I need to hire a motorcycle accident attorney?

Motorcycle accidents often inflict serious injuries. And serious injuries result in time away from work, lost wages, medical bills, rehabilitative treatment, surgeries, and other losses. Recovering just compensation for your motorcycle accident is not always easy or straightforward, even if it is clear that the other party was negligent. For that reason, it is advisable to seek the counsel of an experienced motorcycle accident attorney who will conduct a detailed investigation of your injury, negotiate with the responsible parties and the insurance companies, and advocate on your behalf to secure the maximum compensation for your motorcycle accident injuries. Schedule a complimentary consultation with a motorcycle accident attorney at The Law Offices of Andres & Berger, P.C.

FAQ: What are some of the common causes of motorcycle accidents?

Approximately one third of motorcycle fatalities in New Jersey involved riders that tested positive for the presence of alcohol. Speeding also ranks high as a contributing factor in more than one quarter of fatal crashes. Being an inexperienced motorcycle rider and distracted driving were also contributing factors in nearly one quarter of New Jersey’s fatal motorcycle accidents. In motorcycle accidents that occur with other vehicles, more than half of those accidents happen at intersections, and in more than two-thirds of those, the vehicle’s driver does not see the motorcycle.
