New Jersey Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Riding a motorcycle combines elements of practicality and efficiency with a sense of adventure, but the adventure isn’t risk free.

While motorcycle riders may save money on gas, squeeze into the tightest of parking spots and experience the thrill of the open road, they also have an increased chance of death or injury as a result of any motor vehicle accident.
The Dangers of Motorcycle Accidents
When it comes to accidents, the odds are stacked against anyone on a motorcycle. Motorcycle riders experience reduced visibility, when compared to drivers of other vehicles, and are more vulnerable to hazardous conditions. Helmets offer some protection, but riders remain largely at the mercy of the kinetic forces unleashed in an accident. Yet despite the hazards inherent to motorcycle riders, they, just like automobile drivers, have the right to safety on the road.
Surprising Motorcycle Accident Statistics
The following are from the Research and Innovative Technology Administration’s Bureau of Transportation statistics and a study on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration websites:
- In 2009, only 67% of motorcycle operators and passengers used helmets.
- Motorcyclist crash-related fatalities have more than doubled in the last 10 years.
- In 2009, there were 4,462 motorcycle accident fatalities, 90,000 injured in motorcycle accidents, and 106,000 motorcycle crashes nationwide.
