Who Pays My Medical Bills After a Motorcycle Accident?

New Jersey motorcycle accident lawyer

Motorcyclists often look forward to the warmer weather so they can enjoy a nice bike ride around their neighborhood. But, what happens when that same activity that you enjoy is ruined by the negligence or lack of care of another driver? Motorcycle accidents tend to be severe, as motorcycles do not have the same safety features as passenger vehicles do.

Understanding New Jerseys’ No-Fault Laws

Navigating a motorcycle accident case can feel overwhelming. New Jersey follows no-fault laws, which means that regardless of who is at fault for a motorcycle accident, your own insurance company will cover the damages. Unfortunately, this does not always include medical bills. This could leave you with medical debt and an inability to work, all for enjoying a nice ride. Even if you have health insurance, you could be left with ongoing debt including copays and rehabilitative care.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

The injuries from a motorcycle accident tend to be significant. Individuals will almost always require emergency medical care and many will need ongoing care. Some injuries can be permanent, which can affect the individual from returning to the same line of work, or from working entirely.

These are a few of the most common types of motorcycle injuries:

  • Traumatic brain injuries: TBIs are often caused from head-on accidents, especially when the individual is not wearing a helmet.
  • Spine and back injuries: The sudden impact of the motorcycle hitting either another vehicle or the ground can lead to spine and back injuries.
  • Internal bleeding: It is not always easy to recognize internal bleeding initially. For this reason, it is important to seek medical care immediately.
  • Broken bones: Broken bones will often require rehabilitative care and in some cases, mobility assistance.

Motorcycle accidents can also lead to a loss of life, which can be especially difficult for the surviving family. With so many limitations included with New Jerseys’ no-fault auto laws, it can be difficult to collect the compensation that you need to recover.
