New Jersey has motorcycle safety laws in place to protect riders. Helmets are a requirement for bikers in NJ. Specific education and training requirements must be adhered to before someone can obtain a motorcycle license. Handlebars must rest below rider’s shoulders. All motorcycles must be equipped with a rearview mirror. Bikers with permits have limitations regarding passengers. These are just a few of the ways New Jersey is trying to keep motorcyclists safe.
Regardless, however, motorcycle accidents happen on roadways and highways throughout the state every day. In fact, according to the NJ Department of Law and Public Safety, there were almost 13,000 motorcycle accidents in New Jersey from 2009 to 2013. Bikers are far more likely to be injured or killed in a car accident, truck accident, bus accident, or other motor vehicle accident as well.

Any time an accident happens, there can be serious, even deadly, consequences. This is especially true when a motorcycle is involved in an accident. Without the protection other motorists have, namely tons of steel surrounding them, airbags and seat-belts, bikers often sustain traumatic brain injuries as well as serious head, neck, and spinal injuries.
