The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that bicycle accidents are on the rise across the nation. Although there are a plethora of causes for these types of traffic accidents, the top cause is reckless driving. Unfortunately, while the State of New Jersey allows injured cyclists the opportunity to recover compensation from the drivers who caused their injuries, negligent drivers and their insurance carriers will work aggressively to place blame on the cyclist.
