Serious motorcycle injuries require proficient and aggressive attorneys to achieve successful results.  The team of personal injury attorneys at Schiller McMahon are well-versed in the high stakes and complex litigation surrounding motorcycle accidents.  Our attorneys have spent years gaining substantial experience in building cases for innocent victims as former prosecutors.  Further, our attorneys boast both substantial trial experience and countless successes before juries, both in the public sector as prosecutors and in the private sector as civil litigation attorneys.  Losing is never an option at our firm.

If you have been injured while riding your motorcycle or as the passenger of a motorcycle, you are likely coping with traumatic, life-changing injuries.  Under New Jersey law, motorcycle accident victims are entitled to recover monetary damages for pain and suffering, loss of income, medical expenses and loss of consortium.  These types of accidents and/or crashes almost always result in significant injuries which effect victims’ ability to work and earn of living for themselves and/or their family.  That is why you need a trusted team of trial-ready attorneys in your corner.

The population density and road congestion in New Jersey have led to an increase in motorcycle accidents and injuries in the past decade.  Motorcycle accidents have historically resulted in very serious injuries, and in some cases, death.  Most often, riders involved in accidents while operating their motorcycle require long-term medical care and rehabilitation.  New Jersey is considered a no-fault insurance state and New Jersey law does not provide for personal injury protection (PIP) benefits for motorcycle riders, which means that injured victims are often stonewalled by insurance companies when seeking reimbursement for costly medical expenses.

New Jersey law provides certain time limitations (statute of limitations) in which you must file a lawsuit if you have suffered injuries from a motorcycle accident.  In some cases, the statute of limitations is only 90 days.   In addition to time constraints, it is essential that valuable evidence is secured as soon as possible following an accident in order to build a solid case against the at-fault party.

In the event that our firm chooses to represent you, our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means we don’t get paid unless we recover a settlement or award on your behalf.  Our firm offers free, initial consultations at our office.  In the event that you are unable to come to our office due to the severity of your injury, our attorneys will come to you.  We understand the difficulties surrounding the healing process and work tirelessly to achieve the maximum compensation possible and client satisfaction.
