Automobiles pose a risk to everyone on New Jersey’s roadways, but collisions to motorcycles can be especially tragic due to the fact that bikes are not equipped with the same safety features. Motorcycles do not have a protective shell to guard passengers and are much smaller and lighter than other cars and trucks. Therefore, motorcyclists are much more likely to suffer severe lacerations, broken bones and catastrophic brain injuries following a crash.
After a serious motorcycle accident, it is imperative that you seek the legal counsel of a New Jersey motorcycle accident lawyer who handles catastrophic injury cases regularly. If your motorcycle crash was caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another driver, you may be entitled to compensation for damages caused by the accident, such as pain, suffering, mental anguish, hospital and medical bills, physical therapy costs, past/present/future lost wages, other economic loss.

What Type of Motorcycle Accident Injury Claims do you Handle?
Motorcycle riders have the same rights as all other vehicles when using New Jersey roadways. Unfortunately, cars and trucks often fail to notice bikers who share the road with them, often resulting in serious accidents. In other instances, a motorcycle accident may be caused by a defective motorcycle or a dangerous and defective roadway.
Negligent acts that commonly cause motorcycle accidents include:
- Vehicles cutting off motorcyclists at intersections
- Swerving in front of a cyclist
- Failing to yield when appropriate
- Failing to obey traffic signs
- Drivers failing to keep a lookout for motorcyclists – this frequently happens after changing or entering lanes
- Failing leave sufficient space when following a motorcycle
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Driving while distracted or neglecting to pay careful attention
The Wieand Law Firm knows what evidence to look for to prove liability in a motorcycle accident. We will collect and carefully examine evidence from the crash site that may show that roadway defects, intoxicated motorists, negligent motorists or an aggressive driver caused your injuries.
In addition, we are experienced at proving serious injuries in court. A motorcycle accident often causes serious trauma to the rider, even if the collision only dents the car. Our firm represents clients who have suffered injuries including:
- Traumatic Brain Injury, Head Injury or Brain Damage
- Neck & Back Injury
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Severe Road Burns & Road Rash
