Every motor vehicle accident has the risk of injury for those involved in the accident. However, the risk of injury is far greater for a rider on a motorcycle that is involved in an accident. Motorcycle riders are completely unprotected in an accident and their bodies are subjected to violent forces when they are impacted by a much larger vehicle. Unfortunately, many motorcycle accidents are caused by careless, inattentive, and negligent drivers who are distracted by cell phones or GPS. However, all too often a driver’s negligence must be paid for by an injured motorcycle rider when an accident occurs due to that negligence.
At Team Law, we often find that it is incredibly difficult for injured motorcycle riders to obtain the compensation they need and deserve without needing to fight for that compensation. Many injured riders must fight through bias and preconceived notions about motorcycle riders, which insurers and at-fault drivers rely on to deflect liability and responsibility. But the reality is that many motorcycle accidents are instead caused by careless drivers and other negligent parties.

West New York is a town located in the northern end of Hudson County, New Jersey, across the Hudson River from Manhattan. West New York is located atop the New Jersey Palisades, a line of cliffs along the western bank of the Hudson River. West New York was formally incorporated in 1898, replacing Union Township. Shortly after its formation, West New York underwent rapid economic growth fueled by embroidery and textile industries. Beginning in the 1980s, the Hudson waterfront area has been redeveloped to residential and recreational uses; the construction of high-rise buildings elsewhere throughout West New York have led to the town being one of the most densely populated municipalities in the United States. West New York is also home to one of the largest shopping districts in New Jersey, running along Bergenline Avenue and hosting more than 300 stores and restaurants.
If you and your family have a loved one who was killed while riding a motorcycle by a negligent driver, you may be entitled to recover wrongful death damages. These damages provide compensation for your loved one’s last medical treatment, conscious pain and suffering prior to their death, and funeral and burial expenses. You and your family may also be entitled to be compensated for the loss of your loved one’s financial contributions to the family, the loss of his or her love and companionship and guidance, and the loss of his or her services to the household.
Even though insurance is there to provide compensation when someone is injured or damaged following an accident, the insurance companies have an obvious interest in minimizing the amount of benefits that they pay out. An experienced motorcycle accident attorney can fight for you to ensure that the insurance companies provide you with the full and fair compensation that you deserve and need.
