Gloucester County Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Protecting victims of bike crashes
Motorcycle accidents frequently are particularly serious because drivers of these lightweight, unprotected vehicles are so exposed. Such accidents often result in catastrophic injuries or even death. Many motorists and law enforcement agents tend to blame motorcyclists for causing accidents, but motorists often fail to see motorcycles, so the biker has to take evasive action to avoid a crash. Riders injured in motorcycle accidents in New Jersey can trust Brown, Novick & McKinley Attorneys at Law to provide them with knowledgeable and effective representation in their personal injury lawsuit.
Common causes of a New Jersey motorcycle accident
As an experienced auto accident lawyers, we know what it takes to obtain compensation in any type of motorcycle accident case. Over the years, our skilled team of attorneys has helped many injured motorcyclists move on with their lives.
Below are some of the common causes of motorcycle accidents:
- Tailgating: Tailgating is a dangerous behavior. However, tailgating a motorcycle is especially hazardous, since the rider has little protection in the event of a collision. If a car insists on tailgating your motorcycle, you should safely change lanes and let them pass.
- Blind spots: A large number of motorcycle accidents occur because drivers of passenger cars and trucks cannot see them. To avoid a collision with another driver, do not remain in a blind spot for more than a moment. If you are in a motorcycle accident in New Jersey with a negligent driver, contact Brown, Novick & McKinley Attorneys at Law.
- Speeding: While riding, always drive within the recommended speed limit. Speeding greatly increases your chances of sustaining a catastrophic injury or death if you are in an accident.
- Lane splitting: Not only is lane splitting in NJ illegal, it is also extremely dangerous. Lane splitting occurs when a motorcyclist drives between lanes suddenly. While many riders use this tactic to avoid traffic jams, it increases their chances of colliding with other vehicles.
No matter the circumstances of your accident, if negligence is the cause we are here for you. Each New Jersey motorcycle accident lawyer at our firm is committed to providing injured riders with the legal support and guidance needed to obtain a fair settlement.
