Experienced New Jersey Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Motorcycle accidents often involve catastrophic injuries and minimal insurance coverage. At the law offices of Ginsberg & O'Connor, P.C., we understand the complex concerns in these cases. And with more than 30 years of experience protecting personal injury victims across New Jersey, our Mount Laurel motorcycle accident lawyers are ready to help you recover for your losses, including medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
Protecting Motorcycle Accident Victims
Motorcycle riders have the same rights on New Jersey roads as any other motor vehicle driver, but they face a number of additional challenges. Our firm is sensitive to the nature of motorcycle risk: lower visibility, safety measures and less respect from other vehicles. Drivers always have an excuse for why they hit a biker, but if you have suffered a serious injury, none of that matters. You deserve fair compensation.
Since motorcycle riders do not have the same protection as other drivers, they often suffer severe injuries, even in small accidents. It is crucial to make sure you recover as much as possible from the party responsible for your accident. You may be limited by the amount of coverage available under his or her insurance policy, but we will work to maximize your settlement.
Our attorneys will investigate all possible avenues of recovery, from the negligence of other drivers and vehicle defects to poorly maintained or improperly marked roads. We will make sure you do not leave anything on the table.
Answering Common Questions About Motorcycle Crashes
Motorcycle riders can face significant uncertainty in the aftermath of an accident. At the law offices of Ginsberg & O'Connor, P.C., our attorneys can provide answers to your questions based on decades of combined experience.
Can I still receive compensation if I wasn’t wearing a helmet?
New Jersey law requires you to wear a helmet when operating a motorcycle. However, not wearing a helmet does not prevent you from pursuing compensation through an insurance claim or an injury lawsuit.
What support might be available after a motorcycle crash lawsuit?
Because motorcycle accidents are often particularly severe, they can have a profound impact on injured riders’ lives and finances. A personal injury claim can offer damages for many of these challenges, including:
- The cost of medical treatment, including estimates of the future cost of care for injuries related to the crash
- Property damage
- Wages lost due to the crash, including the loss of future earnings as a result of injuries
- The pain and suffering the injured motorcyclist experienced
As a result, the amount you receive from a personal injury lawsuit is based on your unique situation and the harm you experienced.
How long do I have to file a lawsuit after a motorcycle collision?
If another person or company’s irresponsible actions led to your injuries, you generally have two years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, the statute of limitations may be different depending on your unique situation, and you may want to seek the guidance of an experienced attorney to learn more.
