Many people may assume that a motorcycle accident is no different from any other motor vehicle accident. But for the rider who is injured in a motorcycle accident, the reality is far different. Motorcycle accidents are often more complicated than your typical car accident because motorcycle riders, unprotected from any collision, tend to suffer more severe injuries that take longer to recover from. In addition, liability in motorcycle accidents is often hotly contested as at-fault drivers try to rely on biases and prejudices against motorcycle riders to deflect legal responsibility. As a result, motorcycle accidents can take longer to sort out and resolve, which can complicate life for an injured rider who may need the compensation from a motorcycle accident claim to help pay for medical treatment and cover lost wages and income.

Jersey City is the largest city and county seat of Hudson County, New Jersey, and is also New Jersey’s second largest city, behind Newark. The area where Jersey City now sits was colonized in the early 17th century by the Dutch West India Company and settled by Dutch settlers. Following the Revolutionary War, prominent New Yorkers developed the area that would become present-day downtown Jersey City, laying out streets and city squares that still exist to this day. Jersey City was formally incorporated in 1820, while the area was still part of Bergen County. Surrounding municipalities were consolidated into Jersey City in the post-Civil War period. For much of the 20th century, Jersey City served as a dock and manufacturing town. Although the city is still an important distribution and transportation hub, the Jersey City waterfront has been redeveloped into a major banking and financial district, leading to the waterfront and Jersey City as a whole being nicknamed “Wall Street West”.
It can be hard to pinpoint how long it will take to resolve a motorcycle accident claim since there are many factors that affect a claim. If the at-fault party accepts liability for the accident and it is possible to easily calculate your damages, it may be possible to resolve your claim within a matter of a few months. However, if it becomes necessary to go to trial to seek compensation, it can take up to several years to reach trial, depending on the complexity of your case and the availability of the court.
In most cases, our motorcycle accident attorneys are able to represent you on a “contingency” basis. This means that you do not have to pay us anything unless and until we recover compensation in your case. As a result, there is usually no upfront cost to you to hire an attorney to represent you in a claim for compensation following your motorcycle accident.
