Motorcycle Accidents in New Jersey
Motorcycle accidents are known for being some of the most catastrophic accidents in the state of New Jersey. This is due to the fact that motorcyclists have no protection from harm and are likely to lose their lives in an accident. In fact, in one recent year in the state of New Jersey, it was estimated that approximately 53 people lost their lives as a result of these horrific accidents. When drivers fail to properly control their vehicles, a fatal collision could occur within seconds.
