For more than 40 years, the West Milford and Jersey City law firm of Krivitzky, Springer & Feldman has successfully represented injured victims of motorcycle accidents throughout New Jersey.
Overcoming Myths About Bikers
Motorcycles and motorcyclists share legal rights on the road with automobiles and motorists. In our experience, most bikers are as equally attentive to road safety, courtesy and precautions than the typical motorist, or even more so. Yet it is not unusual for police, eyewitnesses, insurance claims adjusters, and even juries to carry a bias against motorcycle riders. Common stereotypes include:
- “They never stay in their own lane.”
- “They weave in and out of traffic.”
- “They always seem to be speeding.”
- “It’s too hard for drivers of cars to see motorcycles.”
- “They accept the risk by riding motorcycles.”
Our attorneys understand the challenge of overcoming these biases against motorcyclists. Often the physical evidence, such as the points of impact, skid marks, and property damage will help prove the other driver was at fault. In some cases, an accident reconstructionist can be retained to analyze the scene and create a video recreation of the accident. Prompt investigation of the scene, photographs of the vehicles and statements from any witnesses are important.
Motorcycle accident victims often sustain serious injuries, including broken bones, road rash, and head injuries. Their bike can be totaled or severely damaged. We are dedicated to fighting for the rights of bikers. We will work to recover the maximum compensation for your injuries, property damage and lost wages.

Insurance Issues in West Milford Motorcycle Accident Cases
Motorcycle insurance policies in New Jersey typically do not include No-Fault medical benefits which are required in automobile polices. Our experienced personal injury attorneys can determine what coverage you have and how your medical bills will be paid. Sometimes your own car insurance can provide uninsured or underinsured motorist benefits which will allow you to recover money for your pain and suffering in excess of the negligent driver’s insurance coverage.
