Motorcycle Accident Attorney in the Newton & Elmwood Park, NJ, Area
Also Serving Dover & Mendham, NJ
Motorcycles give freedom to their riders. These two-wheeled vehicles provide a unique access to the road, making any rider better acquainted with the thrill of driving. And while a car doesn’t provide the same experience, it does provide greater safety than a motorcycle. However, cars can actually become a danger to anyone on a motorbike.
Because a bike provides less protection, its rider is more likely to suffer injuries in any accident. If you have been injured, you need the assistance of a motorcycle accident lawyer from Gelman Gelman Wiskow & McCarthy LLC. We have helped motorcyclists defend their rights and win compensation since 1950. Trust our years of experience to receive the funds you need to pay your medical bills.
Defend Against Reckless Motorists
As a motorcyclist, you have to take extra precautions when driving on the road. You need reflective clothing as well as clothing that can protect you from accidents. You need to drive defensively and constantly stay out of other people’s blind spots. On the other hand, many car drivers don’t feel the same need to take precautions. As a result, you face danger from behaviors such as:
- Texting and talking while driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol, prescription drugs, and illegal drugs
- Unsafe driving for poor weather or road conditions
- Tailgating a motorcyclist
- Changing lanes without looking for a motorbike
- Failure to yield that cuts off a motorcyclist
If you notice that behaviors like these cause your accident, tell us. We can help you show that the accident was the other party’s fault.
