Financial Relief After A Motorcycle Accident
We love to ride in New Jersey. Motorcyclists enjoy the freedom of taking their bike down the state’s routes and city streets. Unfortunately, though motorcycles have the right to the road as much as four-wheeled vehicles do, far too many careless car and truck drivers crash into riders each year.
Motorcycle accident victims in Ocean and Monmouth counties trust the Law Office of Donald W. Bedell to get rightful compensation for their injuries. We take pride in getting the job done for all of our clients with efficient and aggressive legal support.
Why Motorcycle Accidents Happen
Some drivers fail to respect motorcyclists’ safety. Here are just a few common causes of motorcycle crashes:
- Cars changing lanes without signaling or looking carefully enough first
- Drivers who try to make a left turn without yielding to an oncoming motorcyclist
- Drivers who fail to notice that the motorcycle in front of them has stopped or slowed down
All of these scenarios have one thing in common: car and truck drivers either failing to notice that a motorcycle is nearby, or failing to acknowledge the rider’s right of way. No matter how defensively and alertly riders act, sometimes they cannot avoid getting hit by a much larger vehicle.
Drivers Vs. Riders
The rider is almost always the most seriously hurt in a motorcycle crash. Virtually all four-wheeled vehicles have seat belts, air bags, crumple zones and other safety equipment. Motorcycles have none of these. Even with helmets, riders are vulnerable to severe brain trauma, spine injuries and other debilitating bodily harm.
