New Jersey Single Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Proudly serving all of New Jersey


If you’re reading this page, there is a good chance you’ve recently been involved in a motorcycle accident, not necessarily of your own doing. There are hundreds of reasons you could have ended up in a wreck, from shoddy road conditions to reckless drivers. But one thing is for certain, you are undoubtedly in a lot of pain and a great deal of suffering because of your injuries or losses.

If you lost a loved one in a single-vehicle motorcycle accident, you may be able to file an injury claim. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, 37% of motorcyclist deaths in 2018 were the result of single-vehicle crashes.

The NJ motorcycle accident team at Lependorf & Silverstein, P.C. understands the difficult position you are in and stand ready to help. With our years of experience and insight, you’ll be able to secure the compensation necessary to recover from your injuries and get back on track.

But you may be thinking: “What do I need a lawyer for? My insurance will cover the accident.

This is entirely possible and in some cases you would be correct. However, claims are rarely ever that easy – there are as many questions as there are reasons when it comes to such accidents. Single motorcycle accidents are especially notorious for being scrutinized and overly criticized:

  • Were you going too fast around the turn?
  • Did you fail to heed the street signs?
  • Are there any witnesses to corroborate your story?

As a rule, insurance companies and those accused of causing your accident will make it extraordinarily difficult for you to collect on any claim or filed suit. For that reason, we highly recommend contacting our firm as soon as possible. Lependorf & Silverstein, P.C. have a long history with motorcycle enthusiasts and we are fierce defenders of your right to ride in peace and obtain compensation should you be injured in that pursuit.

As mentioned earlier there could be any number of reasons your accident occurred. At Lependorf & Silverstein, P.C., it is our job to get to the bottom of what caused your wreck and help others understand the traumatic effect it has had on your life. We accomplish this through intensive investigation and specialist reviews. By getting a clear idea of how the accident happened, we can build a rock-solid foundation for your case to rest upon. The following are just a few of the single motorcycle accident situations and environments we have encountered:

  • Hazardous Roadways: Should the state, city or local municipality fail to maintain safe roadways, they could be held liable for their inaction. Examples of such negligence include deep potholes, poor lighting, rocky debris along the curves, and missing signs.
  • Defective Parts: On the other hand, not all problems are external. If your bike was built with faulty parts that are critical to its function – brakes, fuel lines, cylinders, etc – and it fails, the manufacturer of the bike or the part could be held accountable.
  • Wild Animal: If you were attempting to avoid a deer or equally sized forest animal, there is a good chance you ended up in a serious collision. Accordingly, insurance companies recognize this as a covered loss. But depending on the severity of the crash, and your injuries, their offer may not be enough.
