Motorcycle Accident Lawyer | Essex County NJ | Birkhold & Maider, LLC
Motorcycle riders are uniquely vulnerable on the road. The statistics bear it out: motorcyclists die at 26 times the rate of drivers behind the wheel of a car, and are five times more likely to sustain an injury. New Jersey’s congested highways and interstates provide too many opportunities for severe or lethal injuries to occur. Road rash, spinal cord injuries, lost limbs, and broken bones are injuries common to motorcycle riders – and fatalities are all too common.
If There Is An Accident, Will They Blame The Motorcyclist First In New Jersey?
Equally, motorcycle riders are uniquely vulnerable in the court of public opinion: the broad assumption that bikers are to blame for the accidents that befall them can lead to unfair and discriminatory treated by insurance companies. The margin for error is slim, and cars have the weight and size advantage. Car and truck drivers also have blindspots that motorcycles and the people who ride them do not – this can cause a motorcycle to be easily missed. The most common types of accidents that motorcycles are involved in include head-on collisions, collisions with cars making left-hand turns, motorcycle lane splitting, collisions between motorcycles and fixed objects like abutments and medians, road hazards, and the high speeds that can be achieved by sport and supersport motorcycles.
Insurance companies have teams of legal experts on their side whose sole job is to get you, the injured party, to accept their first – and lowest – settlement offer. Because your settlement will have to cover all of your current and future medical costs, as motorcycles insurance policies do not contain provisions for payment of medical bills, lost wages, and compensation for the pain and suffering the accident caused you, gather the facts and make an informed decision.
