Recovering from the serious and life-threatening injuries that you can suffer in a motorcycle accident is often a long and difficult road. When you are facing the prospect of a length medical recovery and the massive bills that come with it, you may decide that you need the initial settlement offer that the insurance company may provide to help cover the expenses and debts you are already beginning to accrue.
However, these initial settlement offers rarely provide you with the full compensation that you will need throughout the entire course of your recovery — you may find yourself having quickly run through your settlement compensation. That is why it is critical that, before you agree to accept any compensation, you consult with an experienced Elizabeth motorcycle accident attorney.

Elizabeth is a city located in Union County, New Jersey, and is both the largest city in and the seat of the county. Elizabeth is one of the most populous municipalities in New Jersey; as of the 2010 Census, it was the fourth-most populated city in the state, behind Paterson. Elizabeth was founded in 1664 by English settlers, and named for the wife of Sir George Carteret, who was one of the two original proprietors of the New Jersey colony. The present-day city of Elizabeth was established in 1855 from the combination of Elizabeth Borough and Elizabeth Township. Elizabeth experienced significant economic and industrial growth during the 20th century, serving as home at times to manufacturing giants like the Singer Sewing Machine Company, and the Electric Boat Company, builder of many of the U.S. Navy’s submarines. However, Elizabeth has managed to retain much of its suburban character as in 2008 was named by Popular Science as one of America’s 50 Greenest Cities.
Potentially. New Jersey does have a helmet law, which requires all riders to wear an approved helmet at all times. If you get into an accident while not wearing a helmet, it can have a negative impact on your claim for compensation, even if the other driver was solely at-fault for the accident. If you suffer head injuries as a result of your motorcycle accident, the jury may find that you share some fault for your head injuries that could have been prevented or lessened in severity by wearing a helmet. As a result, any compensation that you are awarded may be reduced to accommodate your share of fault for your injuries as a result of your failure to wear a helmet.
After you’ve been in a motorcycle accident, you may be facing piling medical bills, with your financial situation worsened if you are out of work due to your injuries — a quick payment of cash can seem very tempting. However, you should never accept a settlement from the insurance company until you have spoken to a motorcycle accident attorney. An attorney can review the offer you have received and advise you as to whether it represents fair and full compensation for your injuries. Bear in mind that you may have to undergo medical treatment for months or years to come, so any settlement you receive should also ensure that you are fairly compensated for these future expenses since you will not be able to come back to the insurance company for more money after you have settled your claim.
