Many motorcycle accidents result from driving in dangerous conditions such as poorly maintained roads, slippery road surfaces caused by rain, snow or ice or poorly designed roads. While motorcycles have come a long way in terms of design for greater safety, dangerous road conditions can still result in serious accidents.
Motorcycle accidents can occur as a result of defective parts. These defective parts may cause a vehicle to collide with the motorcycle. Defective parts in motorcycles can also result in accidents. For example, defective brakes can result in the bike colliding with another vehicle.
In such cases, the manufacturer of the vehicle or part can be held liable for the injuries and damages resulting from the accident.
What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident
Motorcycle accidents can be traumatizing. However, the steps you take after the accident will greatly influence the outcome of your claim. Our Jersey City motorcycle accident attorneys recommend that you:
Ensure your own safety
The scene of a motorcycle accident can be very dangerous. Because of the construction of a motorcycle, the risks of explosions resulting from fuel leaks are higher in motorcycle accidents. It is therefore important to ensure your own safety by moving to a safe place.
Get medical care
It doesn’t matter whether your injuries are severe or minor, get medical attention as soon as possible. It is especially important to have a full medical examination when you have escaped with seemingly minor injuries. Some injuries may manifest themselves much later. Having a full body examination will ensure that all your injuries are identified early and you can receive the care you need.
Report the accident
If you’re able to, call the police and have the crash reported. The police will prepare a report that will include documentation of the scene of the accident, witness statements as well as any other evidence they can gather. This report will be crucial for determining fault.

Who Will Your Jersey City Motorcycle Accident Attorney Hold Accountable?
Establishing fault in a motorcycle accident can be a complex matter. Our attorneys will investigate the circumstances of your accident to determine the best approach. We will uncover the truth about what caused the accident and who can be held liable.
Our attorneys are experienced at fighting to recover compensation in accidents where any or a combination of the following parties is held liable:
Employers, owners or drivers
The owner, driver or employer can be held liable for an accident involving their vehicle. Your case may become even more complex when it involves a driver who was on the job while driving the vehicle that was involved in the accident. We will help you not only pursue the driver for compensation but also their employer.
If the accident was a result of defective design in the motorcycle or the other vehicle, you can hold the manufacturer liable for your injuries and damages. These cases, however, can be difficult to prove. We will establish fault by carrying out thorough investigations. We will show how the defective part or design resulted in the accident that caused your injury.
Government agencies may be held liable for defects in the design of roadways. They may also be held liable for failure to maintain roadways or for their poor construction. Making a claim against a government agency, however, can be difficult.
