Hit & Run Motorcycle Accident Attorney in NJ
Proudly serving all of New Jersey
Compensation for Victims
Motorcyclists don't have the same protection as drivers of passenger vehicles. There are no barriers between their bodies and the objects around them. That is why motorcycle accidents usually result in considerable injuries that require extensive medical treatment. Surgery, skin grafts, diagnostic scans, physical therapy – the costs of these and more can rise to levels that may not be affordable to the average person. In most cases, a motorcycle accident victim can seek compensation from the person(s) who are at fault. However, the liable party sometimes flees the scene immediately after the crash, leaving the victim to deal with the consequences on his or her own.
At Lependorf & Silverstein, P.C., we have the legal skills and knowledge to take on even the most difficult hit-and-run cases. Our highly qualified New Jersey hit and run lawyers have helped many clients attain the coverage they needed, even when the liable party was not available. Let us do the same for you. Call our office today at (609) 240-0040 for a consultation at no cost to you.
Finding the Party Liable for Your New Jersey Motorcycle Hit and Run Accident
Even if the at-fault driver has left the scene of the accident, that doesn't mean he or she cannot be found. Our legal team has the resources to conduct a thorough investigation that may lead to identifying the liable party. We will analyze police reports and witness statements for any clues. If there are any traffic cameras at the accident site, we will attain recorded footage. If we come across any good leads, we may even employ private investigators to track down the suspected hit-and-run driver or his or her insurance.
Exploring Alternative Options for Compensation in NJ
Even if we are not able to find the at-fault party, we won't stop working to get you the compensation you are entitled to. There may be alternative options available to you besides a personal injury lawsuit. We will help you explore and identify any options that are viable under the circumstances of your particular case.
If you have Uninsured Motorist Coverage, you may recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages by filing a claim with your insurance company. This will not cause your premiums to go up since you were not at fault for the accident. Whether the coverage you receive is adequate will depend on the limits of your specific policy.
If you do not have Uninsured Motorist Coverage, you may seek coverage from the Unsatisfied Claim and Judgment Fund and the New Jersey Property-Liability Insurance Guaranty Association (NJPLIGA). Our attorneys can help you handle the claims process with the State fund and ensure your case goes through.
