Bicycle riding has recently experienced a popularity boom throughout New Jersey. Bikes provide an environmentally friendly, fun and healthy means of transportation for many people; however, with more bike riders on the roads, New Jersey has seen an increase in serious bicycle accident injuries and fatalities. Even bicyclists who wear helmets, reflective clothing and diligently abide by the rules of the road have been killed or seriously hurt when hit by a car, truck, bus or other motor vehicle. Many of these accidents are caused by distracted drivers. Drivers who are texting, using a cell phone or GPS system can easily miss seeing a bicyclist until it is too late. Distracted drivers in New Jersey are legally responsible for the injuries they cause in a bicycle accident. Personal injury compensation helps victims recover the cost of medical care and other damages so they can focus on their recovery.
