Monmouth County Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Representing bikers after NJ motorcycle accidents
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2014 alone, 4,586 motorcyclists died on our Nation’s roadways. That same year, the Administration reported that 92,000 cyclists were injured. Why? People often do not look for motorcyclists because they are focused on trucks, other cars, pedestrians, and other objects. People are often distracted, either by texting, playing with the stereo, or simply ignoring the basic rules of the road. Studies show that most motorcycle crashes with cars occur at intersections, whether in urban or rural areas. More surprisingly, we are seeing an alarming number of motorcyclists struck from behind while stopped at an intersection.
We represent bikers because we are bikers
The firm’s principals, Ray and Tom Shebell, have been avid riders for many years. Tom Shebell grew up riding in Lincroft at age eight and has ridden primarily off-road since that time. Tom currently rides a Husqvarna FE 501 S dual sport and BMW GSA 1200 lc.
Ray Shebell has been riding a Harley for over 40 years. As a young man, Ray toured the country on a motorcycle, seeing the beauty and splendor our country has to offer that can only be witnessed from the back of a motorcycle. As riders, Ray and Tom appreciate the beauty and enjoyment that riding a bike brings, but also know the dangers that riders face on the roads of New Jersey. Although some bikers speed, swerve, and ride in a careless fashion, most riders respect other motorists and are knowledgeable and careful in collision avoidance techniques.
New Jersey Motorcycle Accidents
Overcrowding and traffic congestion often lead to dangerous situations for riders all over the State. Many potential bike enthusiasts will often talk about the conditions in New Jersey as detracting them from even wanting to enjoy this wonderful way of life here in our State.
Drivers who needlessly break traffic safety rules and cause motorcycle crashes need to be held accountable for their actions. Legal action taken against dangerous drivers helps to make everyone in our State more aware of the danger they can cause to motorcycle riders, bicyclists, and pedestrians. We strongly believe in making New Jersey a safer place for motorcycle riders by fighting for those who have been injured.
