Cycling is a favorite in New Jersey, especially in its more urban areas, where cycling proves to be especially efficient. Unfortunately, cyclists are also more at risk of a serious injury than other motorists, as they are far more exposed to the elements. If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, here are some of the questions you may have:
What are the most common causes of bicycle accidents?
Bicycle accidents can be caused by several different factors, though the most common factor is driver negligence. We live in a world where motorists are constantly distracted, overly aggressive, and sometimes even under the influence of drugs or alcohol while behind the wheel of a car. Rather obviously, these distractions and examples of negligent driving behavior are some of the leading causes of car crashes.
Do I qualify for compensation after being injured in an accident?
To qualify for compensation, you will first have to prove that you were injured at the hands of a negligent party. While this may seem straightforward, very often, it is not. Insurance companies may do anything in their power to deny you the compensation you need. Fortunately, though the insurance companies may see your pain as just another business transaction, we understand that you deserve justice. We are ready to tenaciously fight for your rights.
How do I prove a personal injury claim?
To prove a personal injury claim, you and your attorney will use various types of evidence, including pictures or videos of the accident as it happened, medical documents regarding your injuries, police reports of the incident, witness statements, and more. Our firm has years of experience in winning these claims, so do yourself a favor and put our skills to work for you.
What is the statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits in New Jersey?
The statute of limitations is the amount of time you will have from the date of your accident to file a personal injury claim against a negligent party. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations is two years. If you wait past the two-year mark, you will be denied your right to sue. The sooner you file, the better. When you reach out to our firm, we will begin the claims process immediately. We are ready to help you win the compensation you deserve.
