There is something to be said about a person who chooses to ride a “hog” instead of a regular vehicle. People who like the wind in their hair and the adrenaline rush of riding with such little protection, deserve to be represented fairly just as much as someone who drives a car. Especially, since riding a motorcycle is inherently riskier than a car. No prejudices should be brought just because you chose the wild side. Car drivers need to respect everyone on the road. Our experienced motorcycle accident attorneys at Soloff & Zervanos, PC in New Jersey understand the needs of our bikers.
It was 3 years ago, but to this day, the story of a son lost too soon in the Cherry Hill community is worth remembering. He was supposed to sell his bike. He was only 3 minutes from home. The moral of this story is that motorcycle accidents are unique. They can become tragic tales of woe much faster than other vehicles. The young biker was riding alongside two other cyclists. Somehow between the last mile to his home he and a vehicle collided as the vehicle was leaving a parking lot. Unfortunately, the result of the collision was the end of the young man’s life leaving a 5-year-old son to grow up without a dad.
The unfortunate story of the young man so close to home shows that accidents for motorcyclists are different. They require different management and steps than a regular car accident. Oftentimes it is because the motorcyclist will experience more injury. However, just because you chose to ride Harley or a Honda bike does not mean that you deserve less protection.
Many bikers choose to wear helmets and protective gear to protect themselves as much as possible. Despite taking these precautions, motorcyclists are prone to more injuries to the spinal cord, brain, internal bleeding, or permanent damage to the spine. These injuries take time and money. While you are recovering, you shouldn’t be worried about how you are going to keep your family afloat.

It is our job to make sure that you are getting proper medical coverage, recovery for lost wages if you cannot work, pain and suffering damages, and loss of enjoyment of life damages. New Jersey is a no-fault state meaning that your insurance company is responsible for paying for your medical treatment. However, not all insurance policies are created equal. Many times motorcycle policies do not include personal injury protection (PIP) which is your first recourse when experiencing an injury from a motorcycle accident. As experienced motorcycle injury attorneys, we will help explain your rights and course of action.
