Hopewell NJ Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Personal Injury Attorneys with Offices in Trenton and Pennington, NJ
Motorcycle riders have a right to the roadway. Unfortunately, many motorists do not feel that motorcyclists have the same rights at drivers of cars and trucks. This mentality can create dangerous conditions on the road and lead to motorcycle accidents. It is important for motorcycle drivers to understand how they are perceived by other drivers. It is also important for motorcyclist drivers to be aware of the most common types of motorcycle accidents so that they can take precautions and stay safe while driving. Although motorcyclists are often unfairly blamed for causing motorcycle accidents, the truth is that many motorcyclists are injured in accident due to circumstances beyond their control. In fact, most motorcycle accidents are multi-vehicle accidents.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Mercer County NJ
Of course, some motorcycle accidents are single-vehicle accidents. These types of accidents are commonly caused by poor road conditions. However, a majority of motorcycle accidents in the State of New Jersey involve two vehicles. Many of these multi-vehicle accidents are caused by motorists who have a bad attitude when it comes to sharing the road with motorcycles. Operators of cars and trucks might not feel as though motorcyclists have the same right to the road as they do. This kind of outlook can cause motorists to fail to take the necessary safety precautions to avoid a crash. In the worst cases, motorcyclists are injured in hit-and-run accidents.
