Are You Eligible for Compensation?

If you were involved in a motorcycle accident in New Jersey, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, property damage, lost wages, and other damages. However, to recover compensation, you must first determine if you have a valid claim.

The only way to know for sure if you have a valid claim and what it could be worth is to contact us. In the meantime, expand the tabs below to learn more about what it takes to have a valid motorcycle accident injury claim in New Jersey.

Motorcycle accidents can result in severe injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, road rash, and more. Common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Lane splitting
  • Drunk driving
  • Failure to yield the right of way
  • Poor road conditions

In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims, including motorcycle accidents, is two years from the date of the accident. If you fail to file a lawsuit within this time frame, you may lose your right to seek compensation forever.

To recover compensation for a motorcycle accident, you must prove that another party was negligent and that their negligence caused your injuries.

Negligence can be established by showing that the other party owed a certain standard of care to you, that they breached this “duty of care” as it is known, and that this breach caused your injuries.

Liability can also be established by showing that the other party was engaged in illegal or reckless conduct, such as drunk driving.

What Our Clients Are Saying About Us!

5 Star Reviews

I was at a red light and a driver came up behind and rear-ended my vehicle. Immediately after the accident, I called Peter Davis’ office and he started working on my case right away. His staff was very conscientious to the issue and I just felt very comfortable with dealing with his entire office. He really did a great job in helping me. First thing I would do is find yourself a good attorney like Peter Davis. Peter did a great job with the insurance company. He really fought hard for me.

I was in the car, I was the passenger, we were stopped about five cars back from the stop sign and all of the sudden we got hit from behind… And it was a girl that was talking on her cell phone. My car insurance said, ‘We’re not paying for anything else.’ My private health insurance said, ‘We’re not paying for anything else.’ Without a lawyer I would probably still be out there wondering why I was still hurting, why I was still having problems and what was I going to do? Peter has contacted the insurance companies. He has gone with me to doctor’s appointments. They have really gone above and beyond. We need people like Peter Davis to help us.

I was driving on Route 46. A guy was on his cell phone and didn’t realize everyone had stopped or slowed in front of him, so full blast, he hit me in the back. After the accident, I called Peter’s office and he started working for me right away. Peter took the case to arbitration and forced the insurance company to give me a good settlement.

I was driving in Hoboken and was preparing to stop at a stop sign and before I got to the stop sign, I was rear-ended. After the accident, I called Peter’s office and they started working for me right away. Large insurance companies are not looking out for the consumer. I needed Peter Davis to help me out. Mr. Davis fought hard for me and got me the money that I deserved.

I was in a terrible car accident. Immediately after that, I was taken to the hospital in an ambulance. The insurance company treated me unfairly. They refused to pay for my surgery and Mr. Davis made them. If you get into an accident, it’s very important for you to pick someone to be your voice and defend your rights and I suggest Mr. Davis. When I came to Mr. Davis, I was treated with respect, like I was one of his family members, and I really loved him for that.

I was with my son about to get to the cash register and there was a puddle of water that I didn’t see and I slipped and fell. After I fell, I was in physical therapy for six months. I called Peter’s office and Peter started working for me right away. I don’t think the insurance company would have been fair with me if I didn’t have a good lawyer. I would recommend the Peter Davis law firm to anyone who was injured in an accident.

What Will a Settlement Account For?

When you get hurt in a motorcycle accident, you are entitled to collect compensation from the person who caused your injuries. This can include damages for the following:

  • Your medical bills including medication, physical therapy, and doctor’s visits
  • Your lost wages and lost potential compensation in the future
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional trauma
  • Damage to your quality of life
  • Loss of consortium and lost comfort and relationships
  • Punitive damages (in the very worst cases only)

However, to fight back against the insurance companies and their lawyers, you’ll need a motorcycle injury attorney of your own. That’s where Peter Davis comes in. If you’ve been injured in an accident where someone else was at fault, call for a free consultation today.

We have more than 60 years of combined law experience and welcome injured individuals from communities across the state of New Jersey. To schedule a consultation with one of our practicing attorneys, please give us a call or complete our inquiry contact form.

Insurance Company Non-Payment Efforts

Insurance companies don’t like to pay out on accidents. That may seem hard to believe, but it’s true. These companies are in the business of making profits, which take a hit every time they have to pay out on the premiums they collect. This means they’ll do everything from tendering a very low-ball offer to trying to threaten you with getting nothing if you go to court, to avoid a major payout.

They will resort to bullying, strong-arm tactics, and trickery, and might even try to claim that you’re the negligent one. When you’re facing this kind of pressure, it can be scary, confusing, and enraging. You’re not sure where to turn or what to do. Fortunately, there is someone out there who can help—the most important thing to remember is, never apologize and never sign anything!

During your cost-free case evaluation and consultation, we will listen to your story, evaluate the facts of the case, and advise you on the best course of action. Our goal is to ensure that you receive the compensation you are entitled to under the law.

FAQs

There are several steps motorcycle riders can take to reduce their risk of accidents, including:

  • Wear appropriate safety gear, including a helmet and protective clothing
  • Always assume that other drivers cannot see you, and ride defensively
  • Stay alert and avoid distractions while riding
  • Keep your motorcycle in good working condition, with regular maintenance checks

After a motorcycle accident, the first step is to seek medical attention even if you don’t feel injured. Some injuries may not be apparent right away and could worsen if left untreated, so seeing a doctor as soon as possible can help detect and treat any injuries before they become more serious.

After seeking medical attention, it’s recommended that you gather as much information as possible about the accident. This may include taking photos of the scene, obtaining contact information from any witnesses, and obtaining a copy of the police report.

You’ll also want to avoid making any statements to insurance companies until you’ve spoken with an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer. We can help you navigate the legal process and ensure that your rights are protected throughout the entire process.

Left turns are one of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents. When a driver turning left hits a motorcycle that was traveling straight, fault tends to fall on the driver of the passenger car. Of course, there are exceptions. For help determining who was at fault after a motorcycle accident, contact our law office.

In the state of New Jersey, motorcycle riders are required by law to wear a DOT (FMVSS 218) approved helmet.

The head and brain are the most vulnerable part of a motorcyclist’s body. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, around 1,859 lives were saved in 2016 thanks to motorcyclists wearing helmets. Additionally, 802 lives could have been saved that same year if all cyclists had been wearing helmets. Wearing a helmet is paramount for all riders.

Many people avoid calling an attorney after an accident because they’re worried about how much it will cost. At Peter N. Davis and Associates, we work on a contingency-fee basis, meaning we don’t get paid unless you do!

You can call us any time and we will review your case free of charge. If we feel you have sufficient grounds for a claim, we won’t charge a fee unless we win for you. This allows you to retain our services without worrying about expensive hourly legal fees.

It’s difficult to predict exactly how much your case is worth, as every motorcycle accident is different and results will vary. However, the amount of compensation you’re entitled to after a motorcycle accident will depend on various factors, including the severity of your injuries, the amount of time it takes for you to recover, the extent of your property damage, and more. For help determining how much your case is worth, please contact our office.
