Motorcycle Accidents in New Jersey
Motorcyclists who are involved in accidents are often considered to be at an increased risk of suffering injuries due to the fact that they are completely exposed to the elements. Unfortunately, hundreds of people are left with injuries following motorcycle accidents here in the state of New Jersey every year.
The majority of motorcycle accidents reported statewide are completely preventable. We see countless people suffer serious injuries due to accidents caused by drivers who are reckless and negligent while sharing the road.
One of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents is drivers who switch lanes recklessly. While making a lane change while traveling on the road, it is important that drivers check their blind spots and look for other vehicles around them before moving over.
The fact that motorcycles are much smaller than other vehicles means that they are more likely to not be seen by motorists. When drivers engage in reckless actions, such as using their cell phones or driving while impaired, there is an increased risk that they will not see a motorcyclist before changing lanes.
Unfortunately, speeding, failing to yield, and other acts of recklessness continue to contribute to the high frequency of motorcycle accidents that take place here in New Jersey.
