Recent New Jersey motorcycle accidents: 1 seriously injured

A Franklin Lakes man was recently involved in a serious motorcycle accident in Bergen County. The accident occurred on a recent Wednesday in March, police said. When New Jersey residents are involved in similar motorcycle accidents, they often seek to discover whether they are entitled to file a personal injury suit against the party believed to be responsible.

The accident took place in Wyckoff, police said. The man was operating a motorcycle when a vehicle made a left-hand turn directly in front of the motorcycle's path, the police chief said. The 51-year-old man and his motorcycle collided with the vehicle.

He was rushed to a local hospital to be treated for a broken leg. He later underwent surgery, police said. The 25-year-old woman is now facing a number of charges related to this accident, including failure to yield the right of way when making a left turn, as well as driving on a revoked license.

The injured motorcyclist in this accident may decide to pursue a civil claim against the other driver for the damages he incurred. If prosecutors secure a conviction on a charge related to the motorcycle accident, it might be offered as evidence in a personal injury claim. The conviction could help establish negligence on the part of the driver, which is required to be proved before a civil court will consider an award of damages. Individuals in New Jersey who are seriously injured in motorcycle accidents typically consult experienced personal injury attorneys to establish the validity of a proposed personal injury claim and to provide advice and guidance throughout the claims process, including any necessary litigation through the civil justice system.
