New Jersey is a no-fault insurance state. What that means is that the standard automobile insurance policy automatically provides $250,000 of insurance coverage for medical bills (commonly called PIP coverage) incurred as a result of a car accident regardless of whose fault caused the car accident. In the event of a lawsuit, the first $250,000…… Read More

New Jersey has rules of the road for a reason. Whether you ride a motorcycle, drive a car, truck or bus, there are traffic guidelines that are intended to maintain order on the highways and keep all motorists out of harm’s way.

At Team Law, we will leave no stone unturned as we investigate your accident to determine liability. Then, we will work tirelessly to get you the justice you need, want and deserve.
What You Need to Know about Motorcycle Accident Liability Insurance in Clark, Orange and Newark, NJ
In order to hold someone liable for causing an accident, we have to be able to prove that they acted in a negligent manner. This means we can show evidence the other motorist behaved recklessly or carelessly and that behavior caused the accident. If a driver follows the rules of the road, paying particular attention to local signage in smaller towns such as Westfield, Summit and Orange, it’s unlikely they will act in a negligent manner. On the other hand, these are all negligent driving behaviors:
Texting or being otherwise distracted while driving
Paying more attention to what’s going on inside the car – other passengers, the GPS system, the radio, a phone call (even on Bluetooth)
The first rule of driving is paying attention to everything and everyone else on the road to avoid creating situations that put oneself and others in harm’s way. Not following traffic laws is negligent behavior that leads to motorcycle accidents in Essex, Hudson, Union and Middlesex counties and all across New Jersey.
Liability in most motorcycle accidents is governed by the law of “negligence.” A person is negligent when he or she behaves in a thoughtless or careless manner and causes injury to another person. A driver must use care to avoid injuring other motorists, passengers, or pedestrians — basically, anyone that he or she encounters on the road. If a driver is not reasonably careful and injures someone as a result, the driver is liable for injuring the accident victim.
Unfortunately for motorcyclists, statistics reveal that most accidents are caused by another motorist’s negligence. Many car, truck and bus drivers claim they don’t see motorcycles on the road. The result is serious and often fatal crashes
Why You Need an Experienced Motorcycle Accident Lawyer to Help You Prove Negligence?
When you hire Team Law, we will get to work right away with the goal of proving that the other motorist was negligent and, therefore, is liable for the accident and injuries caused by that accident. We will review all records, work with accident reconstruction specialists and safety engineers, interview all witnesses and review any police car video tape so we can:
Prove the other driver failed to exercise the amount of care a reasonable person would in the same situation
Prove that driver’s behavior caused the biker’s injuries
Show that the biker suffered losses in the form of injury or property damage. (You can’t bring a negligence claim if no one was hurt and there was no property damage.)
It’s important to know that there is a statute of limitations on filing for personal injury claims after motorcycle accidents. You must file your claim within two years of the day of the accident. We suggest you contact Team Law as soon as possible so we can get started putting together your case. Witnesses move and evidence gets compromised. By acting quickly, you have the best chance of proving accident liability.
