After A Motorcycle Accident In New Jersey, Call An Attorney
While it may be the case that some police, insurance claims adjusters, judges and juries have built-in biases against motorcyclists, our lawyers at Goldstein, Ballen, O’Rourke & Wildstein work hard to ensure fair treatment for our injured biker clients after a motorcycle accident.
If our client, the motorcycle rider, is injured because of another motorist’s negligence — such as attempted lane splitting with a motorcycle — we will hold that at-fault driver responsible. “I didn’t see the motorcycle” is not an acceptable explanation for wanton disregard of traffic laws when cars and motorcycles share the road.
Apart from questions of fault, however, it is true that bikers who crash with cars very often suffer catastrophic injuries including the following:
- road rash (serious skin injury)
- traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- spinal cord injury
Sometimes our clients who are injured while riding motorcycles were on the job at the time — including police on parade in motorcycle brigades. In such a case, we help the client file a workers’ compensation claim right away, in addition to pursuing any third-party liability claims such as claims against another motorist or against a motorcycle manufacturer or servicer.
