The most important safety measure to take in preventing Cherry Hill motorcycle accidents is to wear a helmet. The science is refutable about how helmets can prevent and reduce the significance of injuries and death of motorcyclists. It is also crucial to make the lights on your motorcycle are on while riding, regardless of the time of day. A lot of times, people just simply do not see motorcyclists, so it is important to make sure your lights are on, wear reflective clothing, and be a defensive driver as to not assume that other motorists are going to follow proper traffic laws or that they can even see you.
There are many safety measures you can and should take to prevent serious collisions, and wearing a helmet is just one of them. However, if you have been injured due to another’s negligence, it is pertinent that you consult with an experienced motorcycle collision attorney as soon as possible.
An individual needs to wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle in Cherry Hill. Whether or not that is going to bar them from making a recovery cannot be said, but the other side can argue that an individual’s injuries would have been less significant if they had their helmet on. An individual should wear a helmet to help prevent any serious or life-threatening motorcycle collision injuries and minimize any potential shared liability in a subsequent civil claim.
When riding a motorcycle in Cherry Hill with or without a helmet, it is important to drive cautiously and be a defensive driver. A motorcyclist may be abiding by all the traffic laws properly, but all it takes is one other motorist to not be driving cautiously for a serious injury or even death to occur.
Furthermore, even though there are turn signals on motorcycles, sometimes they are difficult to see when a biker is making turns. Regardless, it may be a good idea for a motorcyclist to use their hands as turn signals so that people know when they are turning left and right and can better avoid causing an accident.
It is also advisable for a motorcyclist to carry certain information about their blood type and any medical conditions they have on their person. That way, if they are severely injured as a result of a motorcycle accident and become unable to speak or express these things to the EMTs, healthcare professionals who arrive at the scene will be able to find out what the individual’s blood type and medical conditions are.
Bikers should also install a small camera on their motorcycles so they will know what happened in an accident based on the footage it captures.
A common misconception is that if a motorcyclist is wearing a helmet, doing what they are supposed to be doing, and abiding by all the relevant traffic laws, they are going to be safe. That is not always the case. Anyone can get into an accident at any time due to another driver’s inattention. When a collision occurs because of another driver’s negligence, a motorcyclist is going to want to be wearing a helmet.
It is very important to understand that when you get on a motorcycle, you are putting yourself in danger, because other drivers may not always be abiding by the rules of the road. Any motorcyclist who is struck by a motor vehicle could be severely injured, so it is important to take every possible safety measure to prevent a collision, including wearing a helmet.

This team is incredible. They are friendly and knowledgeable. I appreciate everything they have done for me and would recommend them to anyone. Overall great experience
My case settled recently after lasting 4 years. Grungo and Colarulo’s law firm were able to secure a large settlement award for my slip and fall accident. This money will help secure my future for the permanent injury I received as a result of the slip and fall. Everyone was very caring, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. Christine Lafferty is an excellent litigation lawyer. I highly recommend using them if you have been injured or in an accident. I hope I am never in a situation again to need their services, but I know who to go to if I, or any of my family members are ever injured. Thanks Grungo and Colarulo and staff for your compassionate service!
Thank you so much Grungo and Colarulo for helping me with my case. Special thanks to Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team. Erica Domingo and her team was very nice and helped me tremendously throughout my case like more than one year and half. They gave me the right advice and guided me through every step of my case. They gave me prompt and clear responses to all my questions. In addition, Erica and her team provided me with all the what if scenarios so that I can have a clear vison of the steps ahead.
I would definitely recommend Grungo and Colarulo.

My wife and I reached out to Grungo Colarulo in 2020 for advise on a legal matter. After a meeting with the Attorney and Paralegal, we decided to go forward with a case. This case required a lot of documentation, and expert review of the documentation which was aquired. Throughout the process, we were kept up to date monthly, and Grungo Colarulo was always responsive to any questions that we had. The entire staff at Grungo Colarulo are very professional, caring, and willing to go the extra mile. This firm is a definite recommend!
I left five (5) stars only because that’s as many as I could leave. If I could, I would have left 100 stars. Bob & Christine are the absolute best! My settlement far exceeded what I ever imagined. They are professional, friendly, and really listened to what I had to say. They kept me up to date with the progress of my case every step of the way. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Very professional, communicates well, makes me feel like they have my best interest at heart, and overall just a great company. Christine and the whole team has been on top of everything. Would definitely recommend!! 10/10

A dear family friend referred us to a young attorney named Rich Grungo, Jr. We wanted answers and if necessary, justice for our father. From day one of a five-year journey, Mr. Rich Grungo, Jr. made our family and our pain his own. The man never stopped working for us. He kept us informed every step of the way. Questions were answered quickly and with great compassion and expertise. Even though Rich was always busy, he was never too busy for us. We always felt like we were his only clients
I had the opportunity to observe Mr. Grungo work in this case, both in the courtroom on the technical matters of the motions and also as his presentation to the jury in opening and presenting witnesses as well as utilizing animations… and drawings and films that were necessary for a proper understanding of the case…At all times during the presentation, Mr. Grungo operated mostly without notes and questioned the witnesses in a conversational manner which made it most effective. **
Thank you for everything. I honestly felt like you treated my son like he was your own son, for that I am grateful. I would recommend your services to anyone. Thanks for being so awesome to both of us.
It was a pleasure working with Bill. He constantly kept me informed. I would recommend Bill and his firm to anybody I know. They’ll be in good hands.
I had the opportunity to retain Mr. Colarulo for a vehicle accident I encountered. I give him my highest recommendation for anyone in need of an excellent Personal Injury Attorney. Not only does he have an in depth knowledge of the legal field, but he emanates a sense of trust-worthiness that makes you feel secure during the entire process. Mr. Colarulo has the knowledge, drive and enthusiasm that will get the job done for you. He comes highly recommended.
Hi Rich, Well I’m on my way up to college to finish packing my son’s stuff up and to go to his Graduation tomorrow. It’s hard to believe how fast and how slow, at the same time 5 years can go by. I was just thinking of you as I am getting ready to leave and wanted to thank you once again for everything you have done for my son’s future. You are a good and just man. God Bless to you and your family.
