Tens of Millions Won by Our Bergen County Motorcycle Crash Attorney
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are 28 times more likely to suffer serious injuries in a crash than passengers in cars. Part of the reason is the design of motorcycles—the exposure that makes them thrilling is also what puts riders at risk. The other reason for elevated motorcycle crash rates is general lack of awareness among drivers about how to share the road with motorcyclists. Negligent drivers kill more motorcyclists than any other cause.

The Hazards Posed On New Jersey Roads
There were 5,286 motorcyclists killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes nationwide—an increase of 5.1 percent from the 5,029 motorcyclists killed in 2015. Motorcycle accidents are common in Bergen County roads because of the highway risks motorcycles are vulnerable to. One of the most common hazards are negligent drivers. When drivers fail to check blind spots, change lanes without putting on a turn signal, or make abrupt turns into the path of motorcycles, they increase the changes of causing a serious collision.
Another overlooked hazard are poorly maintained roads like potholes and uneven pavement. Dangerous roads can be deadly for motorcyclists going at highway speeds. Potholes or uneven roads can cause two-wheeled vehicles to lose control and crash with other motorists or stationary objects. While these problems are less of a risk for other motorists, they're potentially deadly for motorcyclists. If you were hurt because of a dangerous road, local authorities should be held liable for their failure to keep roads safe.

Q:How is a personal injury claim different from a personal injury lawsuit?
A:Many victims are unsure what legal actions they should take to pursue fair compensation for their injuries. If you wish to hold the person responsible for your injuries liable, it is important to know the differences between a claim and a lawsuit.
Q:What is negligence?
A:Negligence is one of the key aspects of any personal injury case. Negligence occurs when a person or party does not act with the proper amount of care and caution that a reasonable person would use to prevent harm or injury to another individual, or when the person or party does something harmful that a careful and reasonable person would not have done in a similar situation.
Q:How important is negligence to my case?
A:Negligence is perhaps the most integral factor in an injury claim or lawsuit, and in order to fight for justice against the liable party (also called the defendant), you must first be able to prove their negligence and that it is the direct cause of your injuries.
