Putting the Blame on the Negligent Driver
Motorcycle, bicycle and pedestrian accidents have a common thread — blame the victim. The insurance companies are happy to exploit the public bias against motorcycle riders, children on bikes and people crossing a busy street.
The attorneys of Martin Kane Kuper, LLC excel at putting the blame where it belongs — on the negligent car driver responsible for the tragedy. We have recovered many verdicts and settlements for the substantial injuries or wrongful deaths in motorcycle accidents and pedestrians or bicyclists struck by cars.

Motorcycle Accidents • Pedestrian Accidents • Bicycle Accidents
Our veteran trial lawyers are familiar with the unique challenges in a motorcycle accident. The injuries are more severe, there is no PIP coverage for medical bills, and law-abiding motorcyclists are accused of causing the crash. We try to get to the scene as soon after the collision as possible to take photos, measurements and witness statements. We commonly call in experts in biomechanics or accident reconstruction to prove that an inattentive driver ran into the motorcycle and not vice versa.
We hunt down all available insurance coverages, including the rider’s own auto insurance policy, to cover the life-changing injuries: head trauma/brain injury, spinal cord damage, and amputated or mangled legs. We have also won product liability cases over manufacturers’ failure to incorporate protections for the motorcyclist.
In pedestrian or biking accidents, witnesses and accident reconstruction can also make or break the case. Again, we work to prove the driver’s failure to see the victim or failing to yield the right of way. As in motorcycle cases, we exhaust all applicable insurance policies to ensure that your child or family member is covered for the massive medical bills and a suddenly limited future.
Don’t admit fault. Don’t say anything. A pedestrian’s or motorcyclist’s actions can reduce compensation under comparative negligence laws — or blow your case altogether. New Jersey’s helmet law could also limit damages if you were not wearing one. Never give a statement or sign anything without talking to an attorney first.
