Motorcycle Accidents in New Jersey
Every year, hundreds of people are left with serious injuries as a result of motorcycle accidents in the state of New Jersey. Quite often, these accidents are a result of drivers who are reckless and negligent. Even though motorcyclists are often stereotyped as being negligent motorists, they are often victimized by reckless and negligent drivers sharing the road.
Motorcyclists are often hurt as a result of accidents caused by drivers who weave between lanes of travel on the road. When drivers fail to yield to motorcyclists who are traveling nearby, they can strike them and cause serious injuries. Unfortunately, we see a significant number of motorcyclists hurt as a result of drivers who fail to check their mirrors and blind spots before switching lanes and, as a result, they strike motorcyclists nearby.
Another common cause of motorcycle accidents is intoxication. When drivers are under the influence of drugs or alcohol, they are likely to lack the ability to make responsible decisions. Unfortunately, alcohol often impairs a driver’s ability to stop in time to avoid striking the motorcyclist that may be traveling nearby.
Other common causes of motorcycle crashes across our state include distractions, running red lights, passing stop signs, and tailgating.
