When you are in a truck or car accident, you are protected by an array of safety features, such as airbags, seatbelts, and the structure of the vehicle itself. Motorcyclists are not afforded this luxury, making motorcycle accidents far more dangerous in nature. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there were approximately 40,000 motorcycle accident fatalities between 1999 and 2006 alone. About 80% of motorcycle accidents result in a serious injury or fatality, which means the victim and their loved ones will have many concerns. Let the personal injury attorneys at Team Law ease your mind by fighting for your cause.
New Jersey’s Congested Highways are Magnets for Motorcycle Accidents
The Federal Highway Authority reports that almost 2,500 motorcycles are involved in crashes in New Jersey alone every year. The vast majority of those accidents end in fatalities (up to 80 percent), or at the very least, severe injuries to the bike rider. 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.
There are several types of accidents involving motorcycles. Whether the weather is to blame for a bike skidding off the road, or a car makes a left turn in front of the motorcycle rider because the driver didn’t see the bike. Single bike accidents or those that involve a car driver’s failure to yield or make a full stop at a red light or stop sign are common causes in Middlesex, Essex, Union and Hudson counties and throughout New Jersey.
Motorcycles are very small compared to cars and certainly to trucks and buses. It’s not unusual for the entire bike to fit into a car driver’s blind spot so that when a lane change takes place, the car cuts the bike off causing an accident. Statistically, car and truck drivers tend to fail to notice motorcycles much of the time on New Jersey highways. Whether they are distracted or just don’t anticipate the bike rider’s response time, the other vehicle is often responsible for the motorcycle accident.
When the experienced motorcycle crash injury attorneys at Team Law take on a case, we fight for the rights of our client, intending on collecting maximum compensation for their injuries, even in cases of uninsured/underinsured motorists and other motorcycle insurance issues. We know that, at the end of the day, there are two main reasons for motorcycle accidents:
The two most common types of motorcycle accident cases are:
Negligence or recklessness of another driver who doesn’t pay enough attention to the road and subsequently causes an injury or death to a biker sharing the road. Team Law will sue the other driver for damages.
A motorcycle defect can also cause an accident that cannot possibly be predicted. We will take on your product liability claim and fight for maximum compensation for injuries and for repair or replacement of the motorcycle.
Contact a team of skilled lawyers who will fight for your rights and protect your interests and determine who is to blame at the negotiating table, and when necessary, in court. We’re on your side every step of the way.
