Each motorcycle accident presents a unique set of challenges. The case must be appropriately handled right from the beginning. Often the police report unfairly attributes a portion of the blame to the motorcyclist. Injured motorcycle riders are discriminated against because they do not have the benefit of Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits. Furthermore, if not properly educated by the trial attorney, a jury may conclude that a cyclist assumed the risk when he or she chose to ride a motorcycle.
The injuries caused by a motorcycle accident can be severe. Even with protective gear, a motorcyclist is easily injured. Cars and trucks frequently do not look out for motorcycles. A rider can be forced to lay the bike down to avoid colliding with a large vehicle that has carelessly changed lanes without signaling or made a right turn without stopping. Riders suffer a wide range of catastrophic injuries, including fractures, brain injury, spinal cord damage, and serious skin contusions. A motorcycle accident can easily cause a fatality because of the vulnerability of the rider.
We at Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C., often use the services of accident reconstruction experts to demonstrate to a jury or insurance company that the accident was solely caused by the carelessness and negligence of the defendant. It is our job to change a juror’s thinking so that they understand that motorcycling is normally a safe and legal means of recreation and transportation on New Jersey roadways and freeways.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle crash, contact an attorney who knows exactly what you are going through. Call Sam Davis or partner Garry Salomon at Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C., to learn about your rights and your options. From our New York and New Jersey offices, we serve cities such as Newark, Elizabeth, Paterson, Trenton, and Teaneck.
