When you or a loved one have been involved in a motorcycle as a rider, you have likely suffered serious injury. As a result, you’ll likely need to dedicate all your time and energy to recovering from the accident. So when your accident is caused by another person’s or entity’s negligence or recklessness, how will you still have the time and resources to devote to pursuing a claim for compensation to hold the at-fault party or parties responsible for your injuries?

Let the motorcycle accident lawyers at Team Law help you understand what kinds of compensation you may be entitled to following your Plainfield motorcycle accident.
Pursuing compensation after a motorcycle accident that was not your fault is not easy. Negotiating with insurance company and defense attorneys is incredibly difficult — insurers and defense firms are always looking for any angle to minimize the financial responsibility to you, and when you don’t have experience legal representation on your side they certainly have the ability to drag out your claim and make it impossible for you to get the full compensation you are entitled to in a timely manner.

We aren’t easily swayed or stopped by the tactics they use to avoid liability, and we aggressively pursue the maximum compensation we believe our clients are entitled — if necessary, we are always prepared to fight for our clients in court to win.

Plainfield is a city located in Union County, New Jersey, and is part of the New York City metropolitan area. The area was settled by Quaker settlers in 1684 and to this day retains many buildings from the colonial and Revolutionary War eras, with the Nathaniel Drake House having briefly served as George Washington’s headquarters in 1777. Present-day Plainfield was originally formed as Plainfield Township in 1847, from portions of Westfield Township. Plainfield city was later taken from portions of Plainfield Township in 1869. The city and township co-existed until 1878, when Plainfield Township was dissolved and much of its territory incorporated into Plainfield city. Plainfield has had a long reputation as a favorable place to live, including being known in the 19th century as having a climate that was good for respiratory ailments, and being a place where the wealthy from New York City could build homes outside the city.
Potentially, depending on the circumstances of your accident. For example, if your motorcycle accident was caused by a pothole or other poor road conditions, it may be possible to assert a negligence claim against the municipality responsible for maintaining the road if the municipality knew of and failed to take a reasonable opportunity to repair the road. Similarly, if your accident was caused by some design or manufacturing defect in your motorcycle or in some part on your motorcycle, you may be able to assert a product liability claim against the manufacturer.
Unfortunately, insurance companies sometimes try to avoid responsibility for paying out compensation to injured motorcycle accident victims by claiming that the motorcycle rider was in fact at fault for his or her own accident. This is often facilitated by bias or prejudice against motorcycle riders by those who view motorcycles as inherently dangerous and those who ride motorcycles as dangerous or reckless motorists. If the insurance company is denying you compensation because it claims that you were at fault for your accident, you need to speak to an experienced motorcycle accident attorney who can fight back against the tactics of the insurance company and aggressively advocate for your rights and interests.
