Single Vehicle Accidents
Single-vehicle motorcycle accidents are sometimes caused by actions of the rider, such as impaired driving, speeding, or recklessness. However, there are other factors that may cause or contribute to single-vehicle motorcycle accidents, like:
- Other drivers’ actions, such as cutting off a motorcyclist
- Dangerous roadways and intersections
- Defective roadways that have potholes or uneven pavement
- Defective motorcycles or parts
Protecting Victims’ Rights
In cases when someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing causes a fatal motorcycle accident, loved ones of deceased victims can file what is known as a wrongful death claim against the at-fault parties. Such claims seek compensation for damages, such as medical and funeral expenses, lost future income, and pain and suffering. An experienced New Jersey motorcycle accident lawyer will be able to guide victims and their families toward securing compensation for their significant losses.
