Thank you for standing by me and believing in me. You never gave up on me. When the odds were against me and I felt I didn’t have a chance, you kept reassuring me not to give up hope. I still can’t believe the amount after the deposition. I felt I didn’t stand a chance. You are the most amazing person and I am indebted to you forever! To my hard working attorney

Leonard Law Firm went beyond the norm to ensure our case was settled. He was an exemplary lawyer whose services were a nice welcome considering all the aggravation my wife and I would have gone through had he not covered all aspects of our case. We are so thankful to him and his office. His knowledge of the case set our lives at ease. He was relentless until the case was fully settled and all was in our favor. Thank you so much. We highly recommend his office to anyone.

Hitting the open road on a motorcycle can be an incredible feeling. Sadly, that feeling can quickly transform to terror when other motorists drive ignorantly. Often, motorcycle accidents are not the fault of bikers, but rather people driving cars. Because of the limited protection available to motorcyclists relative to the safety of a car, injuries in these accidents are staggeringly one-sided. It is unfair for a person who is safe in their metal cage to behave irresponsibly around bikers who have no such protection.

Our New Jersey motorcycle accident lawyer, Todd Leonard, will fully investigate the accident by collecting all of the police investigations, scene photographs, and witness statements, and hiring experts to determine who is at fault for the accident, including accident reconstructionists.
Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Being the victim of a motorcycle accident can leave you with numerous questions concerning how the accident happened and who is at fault. Each motorcycle accident is unique. As such, liability can waver drastically from accident to accident. Some of the more common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Drunk drivers
- Drivers failing to hear motorcycles approaching
- Drivers failing to check blind spots
- Motorcycle defects
- Poor roadway maintenance
Motorcycle accidents are often the result of a driver failing to give a biker the space they would have given another car. This is both inconsiderate and dangerously negligent. Poor driving habits around motorcyclists have led to countless accidents and immeasurable costs in injuries and lost lives.
How a Motorcycle Accident Attorney Can Help
There are many ways the services of an experienced lawyer can help you through the challenging times that follow being hurt in a motorcycle accident. We will make sure you obtain all of the compensation you deserve, including the following:
- Payment of all medical bills
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering for any injuries, including scarring
- Lost wages past, present, and future
- Loss of services for spouse
- Out of pocket expenses
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Part of the feeling of freedom that riding a motorcycle creates by not encasing you in an enclosed space is the cause of the inherent danger of riding. Because of the lack of safety features on motorcycles, accidents involving them can have dire consequences. Some of the injuries that are common in motorcycle accidents include:
- Broken bones
- Friction burns (road rash)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
During an accident, a motorcycle will never be able to compete with a car in terms of safety. However, this does not mean that motorcycle accident victims deserve the serious, sometimes deadly injuries that they sustain in an accident.
