Compared to those stemming from other motor vehicle accidents, injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents are often particularly serious. Although motorcycle helmets offer riders some minimal protection from injury, they do not protect riders from injuries to other body parts, or from falling off their motorcycles in an accident.
If you or someone you care about sustained injuries in a motorcycle accident, our experienced personal injury attorneys may be able to help. A Washington Township motorcycle accident lawyer could determine if you have a case, and if so, represent you throughout the legal process. En Español.
Motorcycle accidents can happen in a variety of circumstances. Some motorcycle accidents happen when a motorcycle operator violates a rule of the road or drives in a careless or reckless manner. In that case, you may have a claim against the motorcycle operator as his or her passenger or as another driver or pedestrian for injuries and damages sustained.
In other instances, an accident occurs when another motor vehicle driver is negligent. Motor vehicle drivers are negligent when they violate a traffic law, operate their vehicles in a careless manner or while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or distracted driving. Distracted driving can take a variety of forms, including but not limited to:
To file a claim and successfully recover damages after a Washington Township motorcycle crash, you or your attorney must show that the other motorist acted unreasonably. A reasonable driver should operate a vehicle in a safe, careful, and prudent manner at all times. Therefore, if a driver violates a traffic law, such as by speeding or drinking and driving, this likely amounts to a breach of the legal standard of care.
In addition, the injured person must be able to show that he or she sustained injuries in the motorcycle accident and that the accident directly caused those injuries. Common injuries in motorcycle accidents include head trauma, bone fractures, muscular contusions, scarring, and spinal cord injuries.
Injured motorcycle operators and passengers may be eligible to recover monetary damages for all his or her related injuries if someone else was responsible for the accident that caused them harm. Compensation may include both economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages can include payment of medical bills and lost wages. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, may include compensation for pain and suffering, mental and emotional distress, loss of earning capacity, and loss of enjoyment of life.
If a loved one is killed in a motorcycle accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, the survivors may be able to assert a wrongful death claim to seek damages for loss of companionship, loss of financial support, as well as compensation for all related medical, burial, and funeral expenses. The survivors may also be able to bring a survivorship claim for the decedent’s pain and suffering. A Washington Township motorcycle accident lawyer could pursue damages on your behalf and help you maximize your claim’s value.

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.
Thanks again Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team
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.

In addition to that, Stephanie & Riley & Drenna have done such an outstanding job taking care of me in such a difficult and low point of my life.

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.
