Despite the appeal of the open roads, New Jersey’s congested highways are magnets for motorcycle accidents.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 5,000 motorcycle riders were killed in accidents in 2017 alone. Motorcyclists are about 30 times more likely to die in a crash (as compared to people in other vehicles)—and a shocking 80 percent of motorcycle accidents result in a serious injury or fatality.
Thousands of motorcycle accidents occur in New Jersey every year. The vast majority of those accidents end in fatalities or severe injuries to the motorcycle rider, including:
Some accidents are caused by rider error or DWI/DUI. However, most involve cars and trucks that simply didn’t see the motorcycle sharing the road.

New Jersey law requires that you wear a helmet with reflective material to operate a motorcycle. While the lack of a helmet may be used to reduce your compensation award, it doesn’t always eliminate your right to compensation. Our lawyers can explain the New Jersey comparative negligence laws and evaluate whether you may continue to have a claim despite the lack of helmet.
Not necessarily. Violation of a New Jersey traffic law will be used as evidence pointing to the other driver’s degree of fault. In some cases, that violation may be enough evidence. The insurance company can still find ways to contest liability, possibly by arguing that you were partially responsible.
