Motorcycle Accidents

Woodbury Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

The thrill of riding a motorcycle is palpable to just about anyone who has experienced it. But operating a motorcycle carries inherent risks often more perilous than those associated with driving other motor vehicles. These include the lack of auto-body protection that a car or other four-wheel vehicles afford, the lack of seat belts or air bags, and the decreased perceptibility of motorcycles in traffic.

The dangers of riding a motorcycle are evident in the available statistical evidence. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s most recent figures, there were 4,957 motorcyclist fatalities in the United States in 2012, up from 4,630 in 2010. In addition, there were 93,000 motorcyclist injuries recorded 2012, which was up from the 81,000 figure set the year before.

Because of their vulnerability, our experience has shown that motorcyclists tend to be careful riders. However, when an accident occurs, the damages and injuries are usually significant to the motorcyclist.

Also, and to make matters worse, motorcyclists are not entitled to medical expense coverage by their motor vehicle insurance policies. Accordingly, if a rider who goes down lacks health insurance, his medical expenses quickly overshadow the liability coverage of the motorist who caused the accident. As such, we exhort all of our motorcyclist clients to maximize their right to purchase significant underinsured coverage on their own policies.

If you or a loved one has been injured or worse in a motorcycle accident in the South Jersey or metropolitan Philadelphia region, you need the experienced, knowledgeable assistance of the legal team at Petrillo & Goldberg Law. We welcome the special challenge of motorcycle cases and will work diligently to recover all available damages on your behalf.
