Although it may not seem like it to someone who has never been in or known someone who has been in a motorcycle accident, motorcycle accidents are often more complicated than your typical car accident. This is because motorcycle accidents often cause more severe injuries to riders, who lack the protections and safety features that occupants of other vehicles enjoy — this can make it more difficult to determine the extent of an injured motorcycle accident victim’s financial damages. In addition, financially responsible parties may sometimes try to avoid liability to injured motorcycle riders, relying on biases and preconceived notions about the dangerousness or recklessness of motorcycle riders to shift blame onto the injured rider for the accident.

Union City is a city located in the northern part of Hudson County, New Jersey. Despite recording a decline in population, the 2010 Census calculated that Union City was the second-most densely populated city in America, with a population density of over 51,000 residents per square mile. Union City was established in 1925 following the merger of the municipalities of Union Hill and West Hoboken Township; the city’s name reflects that it was formed from the merger of these communities. During its history, Union City has been home to two major waves of immigration that give the city its two nicknames — “Embroidery Capital of the United States” and “Little Havana on the Hudson”. The first name arose from the German and Dutch immigrants who came to Union City in the 1850s to establish manufacturing of European-style lace making. Beginning in the 1940s, attracted by the embroidery industry, Cubans started moving to Union City, followed by even bigger waves with Fidel Castro’s rise to power in Cuba in 1962 and the Mariel boatlift in 1980, which gave Union City the largest Cuban American population outside of Miami.
You should always follow up with your doctor or local emergency room after you have been in a motorcycle accident, even if you don’t have any pain or visible injuries. Injuries that you suffer in an accident can take days or even weeks to begin showing symptoms. But identifying your injuries as soon as possible following your accident will also you to better establish that your injuries were caused by the accident and determine what kind of monetary compensation you may be entitled to.
Unfortunately no. Once you settle your case against an insurance company or an at-fault driver, you extinguish any legal claim you have against them, unless you have specifically negotiated that future damages (such as medical expenses) can be established at a later date or that the insurance company or at-fault party will be required to continue covering damages for a certain period into the future. However, most settlements simply involve a lump sum payment, and when you accept this payment you cannot demand further compensation. This is why it is critical to ensure that any settlement adequately covers both your past and future expenses.
