When you or a loved one are seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, you need to dedicate all your time and energy to your recovery from your injuries. However, when your accident was caused by the negligence or recklessness of another person or entity, you may not have the time or the resources to pursue a claim to hold those persons or entities accountable for your injuries. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents tend to leave riders with severe, long-lasting, and even life-threatening injuries. The costs of medical treatment and recovery can be extensive and financially devastating. As a result, a motorcycle accident can completely upend your future; you shouldn’t have to live less than your best future simply because your emotional and physical recovery is cost prohibitive.

Edison is a township located in Middlesex County, New Jersey, a part of the New York City metropolitan area and the Raritan Valley region. The area where Edison now sits was originally home to the Raritan people of the Lenape Native Americans; European settlers later came to the area in the 17th century, and buildings from the era are included in the National Register of Historic Places. Present-day Edison was originally formed as Raritan Township in 1870 from portions of Piscataway Township and Woodbridge Township. Portions of Edison were later taken to form Metuchen and Highland Park in 1900 and 1905, respectively. Raritan Township changed its name to Edison in 1954 to honor famed inventor Thomas Edison, whose main laboratory was located in the Menlo Park section of the township.
Potentially yes. New Jersey law uses a “modified” comparative fault system. Under comparative fault principles, a plaintiff can still recover damages even if he or she was partially at fault for his or her injury. When the plaintiff’s share of fault is determined by settlement or by an arbitration or court, his or her total compensation is reduced by his or her percentage of fault. In the “modified” comparative fault system, a plaintiff can still recover if he or she is partially at fault for his or her injury, so long as the plaintiff’s share of fault is not greater than the total share of fault of the other at-fault parties. So if you are not found to be majority-at-fault for your motorcycle accident, you can still recover damages even if you share some fault for the accident.
Even though the insurance company may tell you that they need a statement from you to process your claim against the at-fault driver, it is advisable that you not provide a statement to the insurance company until you have spoken with a motorcycle accident attorney. The insurance company is not looking out for your interests and may be looking for a way to hold you at fault for your motorcycle accident. A motorcycle accident lawyer can speak to the insurance company on your behalf, forwarding the information that they request while still protecting your rights and interests.
