People who ride motorcycles are passionate about the freedom and sense of adventure they enjoy every time they go riding. However, every biker knows that there is a trade-off that comes with riding a motorcycle, and that is they are in much more danger of sustaining a severe injury, even if they observe all of New Jersey’s safety rules and regulations.
Dealing with inattentive drivers, poor weather conditions, road and construction projects, poor signage and a host of other threats can easily produce injuries ranging from a bad case of road rash to permanent and debilitating injuries, and in some cases, death.
Retaining the services of a motorcycle accident lawyer
If you’re a motorcycle rider who has been injured due to the carelessness or negligence of someone else, you may be able to file a claim to collect damages for pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages, among other things. Because there are many unique factors associated with a motorcycle accident, it is essential that you retain the services of an attorney who specializes in motorcycle accidents.
While motorcycle accidents are similar to car accidents in that a plaintiff must prove negligence to win their case, there are also some elements of this kind of case that require specialized knowledge. Reconstructing an accident, employing expert witnesses, and understanding the nature of settlement negotiations are just a few of the challenges that must be overcome to win a case.
Motorcycle accidents are different because injuries are generally more severe
Because there is little in the way of protection for a motorcycle rider, often times injuries are much more severe. At the Law Offices of Patricia Eiges, we know that more severe injuries mean that dollar amounts associated with settling or trying a case tend to be larger than other accident cases. When you are seeking out an attorney, make sure to find a severe injury attorney who has experience with the dollar ranges you are entitled to. This pre-existing knowledge will benefit you and help you attain the maximum dollar amount possible, further helping you on your road to recovery.
