A New Jersey Driver’s License is not a right given to all residents; it’s a privilege that must be earned and maintained by knowing and obeying all the rules of the road – NJ laws, common sense and courtesy – when operating a motorcycle, car, truck or bus in North Jersey. Driver negligence, failure to act and make decisions as a “reasonably prudent person would, causes many critical, even deadly, motorcycle accidents throughout Essex, Hudson, Middlesex and Union counties every year.
If you or someone you love has been in a motorcycle crash you believe was caused by a negligent driver, it’s important that you contact the experienced personal injury attorneys at Team Law today for a free consultation about your case. We have won millions in damages on behalf of good people, like you, who have been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident caused by a careless driver in West New York, Plainfield, and Jersey City and all across NJ.
Dangerous road conditions and defective equipment are a few of the major causes of motorcycle accidents. However, negligence on the part of other motorists on the roadway causes, by far, the majority of most motorcycle accidents.
National statistics regarding driver negligence and motorcycle crashes are harrowing:
There are a wide variety of driver behaviors that might be considered negligent, including speeding, driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, failure to yield, failure to give right of way, not “seeing the motorcycle or failure to check blind spots, failing to use a turn signal, cutting in front of a motorcycle when making a left turn or a sudden lane change, and failing to obey traffic conditions and laws in Westfield, Summit and throughout North Jersey
We will leave no stone unturned as we prove the other driver’s negligence. We work closely with accident reconstruction specialists, safety engineers, medical professionals, and others to build our case against the negligent driver. We will review all police records, witness statement and conduct a thorough investigation about the events surrounding your collision.
In order to hold a motorist liable for negligence, we must be able to prove they engaged in actions that a reasonable person would know would increase the risk for collision. For example:
All of these are clear indications that they weren’t paying attention and therefore driving negligently.
We will build your case, piece by piece, and then skillfully negotiate with the insurance company in an effort to get you the maximum damages possible for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages and more. However, if the insurance company isn’t willing to negotiate fairly, we aren’t afraid to go to court on your behalf. In a courtroom, we will prove to a jury how the other driver’s negligence caused your accident.
Be aware, there is a statute of limitations on all personal injury claims in New Jersey. You must file a lawsuit within two years of the date of the accident. Time is of the essence because witnesses move or change phone numbers, evidence gets misplaced and video gets erased. Contact Team Law today so we can get started building an ironclad case that will result in the maximum compensation you deserve.
