Determined Morris County Motorcycle Accident Lawyer on Your Side
Fighting for injured New Jersey motorcyclists
With none of the airbags, seatbelts or steel framing that protects car drivers, motorcyclists are highly vulnerable in crash situations, and injuries sustained in these accidents tend to be severe. If you are facing lost wages, skyrocketing medical bills, therapy costs, and complicated insurance issues, you can count on Kevin T. Kutyla, Esq. in Succasunna, New Jersey to bring some stability to your suddenly destabilized life. I have successfully handled numerous motorcycle accident claims for clients in Morris County, Sussex County and across the state.
The risk to New Jersey motorcycle riders
Motorcycle crash injuries can often be more severe than those in auto accidents or truck accidents. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), there were 5,172 motorcyclists killed in crashes across the United States in 2017, the most recent year for which data is available. Eighty of those fatalities happened in New Jersey, 11 more than the year prior. The state attorney general’s office reports that if you are involved in a motorcycle crash, you have an 82 percent chance of suffering an injury.
Understanding common causes of motorcycle crashes
Collisions between motorcycles and other vehicles are often the result of:
- Distracted driving and texting while driving by drivers of other vehicles
- Vehicles making turns without checking blind spots
- Motorcyclists splitting lanes to get through traffic faster
- Dangerous road conditions like potholes, cracks, and oil-slick surfaces
- Lack of visibility at night
- Defective motorcycles or parts
As your Sussex County injury attorney, I will thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your accident, and if it was caused by someone else’s negligent actions, you can rely on me to pursue full and fair compensation for you.
Injuries in motorcycle crashes are often serious
I have represented clients who suffered serious trauma in motorcycle crashes. I have the experience needed to handle even the most severe cases, such as:
- Spinal cord injury
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Loss of limb or amputation
- Burns and scarring
- Broken bones
If you or someone you love has been in motorcycle crash in New Jersey, your first priority is getting proper medical attention. In addition to helping you heal, your doctor will compile medical records that are helpful in your personal injury case.
If you are physically able, it is also helpful to take pictures, speak with witnesses and get the information of other drivers on the scene. This can all help to strengthen your case.
Helping victims recover compensation
I understand the issues faced by injured motorcyclists and how to confront them. I will work tirelessly to obtain the reparation you deserve, which may include compensation for lost wages, medical bills, physical therapy, pain and suffering, and even in-home care or nursing home care if your injuries were very serious. If you are a family member of a motorcyclist who died in a New Jersey crash, I can explain how a wrongful death claim might put your family on stronger financial ground.
