The freedom, fun and affordability of motorcycling is leading to an increased number of motorcycles being ridden on our roadways. With these advantages comes a downside; in 2014 alone, nearly 5,000 individuals were killed in motorcycle accidents. Even when collisions are not fatal, they can cause permanent injuries, affecting the victim’s ability to work, and the accumulation of significant medical bills related to the treatment of those injuries.
The advice for vehicle occupants involved in a car accident does not always apply for motorcycle riders. Often, in motorcycle accidents, the rider is rendered unconscious or otherwise injured and unable to gather information on other drivers and witnesses.
Many insurance companies will not conduct an investigation detailed enough to determine the causes and circumstances of the accident, which can be affected by weather and road factors, as well as defects of the motorcycle and driver error. Shortcomings in investigation can lead to superficial settlements that do not sufficiently consider the actual costs associated with a motorcycle accident and its injuries.
Often motorcycle accidents are not the fault of the rider, but are caused by inattentive or inexperienced drivers who do not notice the bike or improperly share the road. In these cases, the injured motorcyclist can seek compensation for their injuries from the responsible parties.
Due to the complexity of such cases it is recommended that motorcycle accident victims seek the assistance of an experienced New Jersey motorcycle accident attorney who has handled hundreds of motorcycle accident lawsuits. The right motorcycle accident lawyer can help investigate the accident and bring in expert witnesses and other strategists to ensure that the case is pursued properly. They can help you seek compensation for physical and psychological injuries, lost earnings and pain and suffering.
Motorcycle attorney Andrew S. Prince has collected millions of dollars on behalf of injured bikers.
