Mercer County NJ Motorcycle Accident Injury Lawyers
Personal Injury Attorneys with Offices in Trenton and Pennington, NJ
Motorcycles are becoming more and more popular as a mode of transportation because they are relatively inexpensive and do not require as much maintenance as cars. Unfortunately, the rise in motorcycle use has led to a rise in motorcycle accidents. Moreover, motorcycle accidents are among the most serious motor vehicle accidents because motorcyclists are the most exposed drivers on the road; as a result, there is an increased chance of catastrophic injury or death anytime a motorcycle rider is involved in an accident. Worse yet, getting compensated for injuries suffered by you or your loved one can be incredibly difficult because motorcyclists are often wrongly perceived as being responsible for their accidents. That’s why it is crucial for you to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible; your compensation may depend on it.

Drivers on New Jersey roadways must exercise a standard of care to ensure that other drivers, and pedestrians, are safe and secure. When another driver fails to exercise a level of care that a reasonably prudent driver would exercise under similar circumstances, they may be held liable for injuries suffered other another person.

It is important for your attorney to be familiar with all relevant state and federal laws that apply to your motorcycle accident injury claim. For example, all motorcycle riders on New Jersey roads are required to wear a helmet. As a result, your ability to get compensation for motorcycle accident injuries may be affected by your use, or lack of use, of safety equipment while driving. Noncompliance with a state’s helmet law can, in some cases, lead to reduced damages.
