What To Do After a Motorcycle Accident

Motorcycle accidents happen all the time throughout Essex, Union, Hudson and Middlesex counties for a variety of reasons. However, regardless of what caused your accident, when you find yourself, or someone you love, unsure of how to get justice in your case, you need a knowledgeable, aggressive motorcycle accident injury lawyer who will take on your fight.

Team Law’s Andrew Prince, Esq. has dedicated his career to protecting the rights of motorcycle riders. His over 25 years of experience have revealed that it is usually the other driver’s negligence that caused the motorcycle accident. The car driver may have been distracted or speeding or perhaps the truck driver didn’t even see the motorcycle at all. Unfortunately, however, it’s the biker whose injuries are often catastrophic. Contact Mr. Prince right away to learn how he can help you get the financial compensation you deserve.

What Should I Do After a Motorcycle Crash in New Jersey?

It’s not unusual after a motorcycle accident to be confused and angry. Possibly, someone else’s mistake left you in pain and out of work going through treatment and rehab. Your bike may be mangled beyond repair. The bills are piling up and, if you are like many people recovering from an accident, you may be feeling depressed and overwhelmed. Perhaps you don’t have a clue where to start.

You’ve come to the right place. After a free consultation with Mr. Prince, you will feel assured that your personal injury lawsuit is in excellent hands.

The steps you should take following an accident depend on the severity of your injuries. Clearly, if you were so severely injured that you were taken from the crash scene by ambulance or medivac, you weren’t able to take photographs or collect witness information.

You have to get in touch with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible who will fight for the financial compensation and justice you need, want and deserve.

  1. Ask a family member to contact Mr. Prince as soon as possible so he can get started collecting reports and any other evidence in your case.
  2. As soon as you are able, write down explicit notes about everything that happened just before the accident, at the crash site, and your treatment following the incident. When necessary, ask a friend or relative to write down all of your recollections.
  3. Keep a calendar about each and every doctor you see and test you take. Make sure you keep all medical bills and information regarding lost wages and work-related issues.

If you were able to take photographs and collect witness information:

If your accident was minor and you were able to gather important evidence at the scene, be sure to give all of it to Mr. Prince. If you had any conversation with witnesses or the other driver, write down as much as you can remember. All of this information will assist Mr. Prince in piecing together what happened that caused your accident. No piece of information is too small.

Whatever you do, act fast following a motorcycle accident in Essex, Union, Hudson and Middlesex counties and throughout NJ. Elapsing time has a way of distorting the memory, so the longer you wait to contact Mr. Prince the bigger the chance that you will forget an important thing that can make a huge difference. Further, videos get misplaced or erased and witnesses move. Don’t make the mistake of thinking you have plenty of time to file your claim.

What NOT to Do Following a Motorcycle Accident in Clark, Union County or anywhere in Central and Northern Jersey

You may be contacted by an insurance representative to discuss your case. They will, no doubt, appear extremely sympathetic. Do not talk with the insurance company, its lawyers or any of its representatives until you talk with Mr. Prince. From the very beginning of the process, meet with a savvy personal injury lawyer to decide if you may pursue a case. Allow your lawyer, Mr. Prince, to speak with the insurance company on your behalf. The reasons are many, but here is the most important one: the insurance adjuster is not on your side.

They may sound like they are on your side, but they is not. They have a job to do. Professionally, they need to try to get you to walk away with as little compensation as possible. As soon as you file a claim with your insurance company, you have reported the accident officially. Direct all correspondence and/or questions to Mr. Prince. Period.

The adjuster’s response will be to do what he or she can to keep settlement payouts low. That’s their job. Mr. Prince’s job, on the other hand, is to fight for maximum compensation in terms of a settlement offer. And, if the insurance company isn’t willing to negotiate an appropriate settlement, Mr. Prince will take your case to court to get you the money your case deserves.

Keeping your Motorcycle Passengers Safe in NJ

Motorcycle accidents are inherently more dangerous than other types of motor vehicle accidents because the riders are exposed to the elements, lack protective doors and are prone to being thrown off their bikes.
