New Jersey motorcycle accidents are on the rise in 2016

Summer may be the perfect time to dust off the old motorcycle and take it out for a spin in New Jersey. Indeed, motorcyclists seem to be everywhere this time of year, enjoying the summer sun and clear skies.

But riders beware: motorcycle accidents have been on the rise the last few years. And even the most cautious motorcyclists are not guaranteed against accidents.

Studies reported by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation show that the majority of motorcycle accidents occur because the driver of the motorcycle is overlooked by other drivers. Passenger cars switching lanes without checking their blind spot, turning illegally across lanes and otherwise crossing the motorcyclist's right of way are the primary causes of motorcycle incidents. In other words, no matter how carefully motorcyclists are, they must always watch out for other drivers. Even those with "loud pipes" are not guaranteed to be heard if an inattentive driver is listening to music, texting or talking to a passenger or on the phone. To make matters worse, about a third of all motorcycle accidents involve alcohol to some degree. With so many cars, trucks and motorcycles on the road, every precaution should be taken to ensure driving safety.

Additionally, motorcycle drivers should always be sure to wear a helmet and safety gear and obey all traffic laws. Accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, and motorcycle riders can never be too careful. New Jersey alone has already suffered more than 260 traffic accident fatalities this year, and that number is growing all the time.

If you or someone you know has suffered in a motorcycle accident, remember you have resources. Krivitzky, Springer & Feldman law firm has a history of defending drivers of both motorcycles and passenger vehicles. We understand your rights and will seek justice on your behalf to get you the compensation you deserve.
