What’s The Difference in Handling Car and Motorcycle Accidents?
The law that applies to motorcycle accidents and car accidents is essentially the same in New Jersey. Of course, a motorcycle operator is far more vulnerable to injury because of his lack of protection than an operator of a motor vehicle. An important thing to remember is that motorcycles are not as readily observable sometimes to drivers of cars, so they don’t exercise the due of care that they should when motorcycles are concerned. The next thing you should understand is that there’s an inherent prejudice that many people have towards motorcycle operators. We have found that if a case is properly prepared, the jury comes to understand that the same laws apply and have to overcome whatever prejudice that they may have towards your average motorcycle drivers and the rules that govern how much they can recover in the event of an accident are identical.
