Our Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Can Help You Pursue Compensation
Motorcycle riders, even when they wear protective gear, are highly vulnerable. They lack the protection offered by the metal structure of cars and other vehicle safety devices. Moreover, other drivers sometimes fail to see motorcycles behind or beside them on the road. The result can be catastrophic crashes that result in severe injuries. In the worst cases, a motorcycle accident can prove fatal.
At the Morris County, New Jersey, law firm of McHugh & Imbornone, P.A. Law Office, our attorneys help clients who suffered life-changing injuries in motorcycle crashes. We believe that our injured clients should focus on healing after a serious accident while our lawyers concentrate on obtaining compensation from the insurance company and other parties. Because our managing partner, Salvatore Imbornone Jr., worked for major insurance companies in the early years of his legal career, he knows how they operate and respond to motorcycle accident claims. This is a significant benefit for our clients because we know how the other side strategizes in these types of cases and can prepare your case accordingly.
What Causes Motorcycle Accidents?
Our experienced personal injury lawyers handle all types of New Jersey motorcycle crash cases, including those resulting from:
- Speeding cars and trucks
- Drunk drivers
- Unsafe lane changes by other drivers
- Running red lights and stop signs
- Loose gravel, broken pavement or debris on roads
- Dangerous left turns by other drivers
- Cars and trucks following too closely
- Defects in the manufacture of the motorcycle
Whatever the specific cause of the crash, the consequences are usually devastating to the motorcycle operator.
Serious Injuries Suffered By Our Clients
Motorcycle riders and their passengers are killed more frequently in crashes than people involved in auto accidents. Even if they survive, riders can suffer catastrophic injuries that include:
- Contusions and lacerations often called road rash
- Broken limbs
- Head and brain injuries
- Facial disfigurement
- Spinal cord injuries that lead to paralysis
- Internal injuries
Injuries like these can leave victims unable to work for many weeks, months or even years. Some may never work again. It is our lawyers’ job to ensure that each client obtains the compensation they need for lost work income, medical and hospital expenses, and other costs related to their accidents. Severely injured motorcycle accident victims may be immobilized without the use of wheelchairs and other devices. Others may need to modify their homes and vehicles to accommodate permanent disabilities. All of these accommodations are expensive; our attorneys can help obtain the compensation that will make it easier for a motorcycle accident victim to adjust to these circumstances.
