New Jersey Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Every year, nearly 100,000 people are seriously injured and almost 5,000 people die in motorcycle accidents, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Single-vehicle motorcycle crashes account for almost half of these fatalities. Nearly four out of five accidents involving other vehicles are head-on collisions, and most occur when a car pulls into the path of a motorcycle. Unfortunately, one of the trade-offs for the freedom that a bike offers is less protection against injury in an accident. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in a motorcycle accident caused by the carelessness or negligence of another person, the office of Harold J. Gerr, Attorney at Law, can help.
At the Law Offices of Harold J. Gerr, we have fought for the rights of personal injury victims in central New Jersey, including people hurt in motorcycle accidents, for more than 40 years. We understand that every situation is unique and won’t use a cookie-cutter approach with you. Instead, we will take the time to learn the details of your accident so that we can focus our energy and effort on finding ways to win your case.
We know from experience that a personal injury can lead to stress and anxiety, as you worry about how you will meet your financial obligations and whether you will be able to return to work or to activities that you love. We work hard to be available and accessible when you need answers to your questions, and will promptly return your calls and e-mails. We will keep you fully informed of all developments in your case, as well as your options and likelihood of success, so that you can make intelligent choices about your future.
In more than four decades in practice, we have built a strong reputation for hard work, thorough preparation and positive results. As a consequence, many of our new cases come to us as referrals from other lawyers, or from former or existing clients.

We provide comprehensive legal counsel to anyone who has sustained any type of injury in a motorcycle accident, whether while operating the bike, riding as a passenger or as a pedestrian. We handle injury claims arising out of:
