Avid motorcyclists know that there is no better feeling that the open road. This is especially true in New Jersey, where there is always something to see on a country road joy ride. Even commuting in traffic on a bike can make going to work more bearable. Conversely, when an accident happens, there are few types of vehicles that are less vulnerable. There are many reasons motorcycle accidents occur throughout NJ; regardless of how or which type of accident you have, the result, more often than not, are serious for riders.
If you or someone you know has been injured in any type of motorcycle accident, you need to contact an aggressive personal injury lawyer who will fight for maximum compensation for your injuries. Andrew Prince focuses his legal practice exclusively on helping victims of motorcycle accidents get the justice they want and the financial damages they deserve. Contact him today for a free consultation about your motorcycle accident and injuries, or the wrongful death of a loved one.
All too often, we hear and read about and, unfortunately, witness on NJ roadways the aftermath of motorcycle accidents. Often, injured riders are driven away in ambulances. While there are many different types of motorcycle accidents, they all have one thing in common; the biker gets seriously injured because a motorcycle provides far less protection than a car or truck. Automobile and tractor trailer drivers are surrounded by tons of heavy metal. They usually have the protection of airbags to soften the blow of an impact.
Andrew Prince has been dedicated to protecting the rights of motorcycle riders in Orange, Jersey City, and throughout Middlesex, Union, Essex and Hudson counties for over 25 years. He fights hard for motorcycle accident victims because he knows that, according to well-published statistics, the majority of crashes that involve motorcycles can be blamed on the other driver’s negligence on the road.
If you or a loved one was injured in any of the following types of motorcycle accidents, contact Mr. Prince right away for a free consultation about your injuries.
Vehicle Making a Left Turn: This is a very common type of biker accident. The motorcyclist is in the left lane keeping pace with traffic. A car in the right lane doesn’t see the bike and makes a left turn in front of the motorcycle, giving the biker little time to react. Often, car and truck drivers see other cars and trucks and motorcycles become “invisible” on the road.
Vehicle Changes Lanes: Similar to the left turn accident above, if a vehicle changes lanes in front of you without signaling or doesn’t see a motorcycle and plows right into the bike, the resulting injuries can be catastrophic.
Vehicle Hits the Bike from Behind: If this happens with two cars, it’s usually called a fender bender. When a motorcycle is involved, the injuries can be catastrophic.
Defective Equipment: Sometimes a motorcycle accident doesn’t have anything to do with another driver or rider on the road. Andrew Prince will hold the manufacturers and suppliers responsible for product liability issues that cause motorcycle accidents.
Red Light Accidents: If a car drivers jams on the breaks at a red light, a motorcyclist can get seriously hurt in a rear-end collision.
Failing to Yield Accidents: All motorists must yield to oncoming traffic. Failure to obey this common-sense rule of the road can have disastrous results.
