Driver negligence is on the rise, and can have fatal results for motorcyclists especially. The Herald reports that a million Americans a day text or talk on cell phones while driving. More shocking is that 80% of drivers admitted to high-danger tasks in a Nationwide Insurance survey, including changing clothes or steering with feet. This puts motorcyclists directly in harm’s way. Recognizing the scope of the problem, NJ has passed tough laws surrounding distracted driving. The NJ Motorcycle Accident Lawyers at Gill & Chamas use deep knowledge of the legal code and decades of courtroom experience to back our clients when it matters most.
