The Governors Highway Safety Association reported that New Jersey had 69 fatalities related to motorcycle riding in 2016, which accounted for 11.8% of the total motor vehicle fatalities in 2016 within the State.

Our law firm will help you navigate through the often complex issues that arise in an accident involving a motorcycle.
One of the most significant issues involving motorcycle accidents concerns determining who will pay for the medical bills that arise from injuries sustained in the incident. New Jersey is a no-fault state regarding motor vehicle accidents and the payment of medical expenses, meaning your own insurance carrier provides coverage for medical expenses through your personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. A person’s medical bills are not paid for by the insurance policy of the at-fault driver.
However, injuries from motorcycle accidents are not covered under a motor vehicle insurance policy. Therefore, if you have health insurance, your health insurance carrier will pay for your medical bills. When a health insurance carrier pays for your medical bills arising out of a motorcycle accident, the insurance carrier may be entitled to be reimbursed, an issue that the motorcycle accident attorneys at Cerussi & Gunn, P.C. have dealt with extensively.
If you do not have health insurance, there are other avenues for paying your medical expenses. The motorcycle accident law firm of Cerussi & Gunn, P.C., located in Monmouth County, NJ, is very experienced at dealing with these issues, and they can assist you in getting your medical bills paid.
