Being involved in an accident is an extremely painful and traumatic experience. As a bicycle accident victim, the pain and suffering can be magnified not only due to the fact that bicyclists have very little to protect themselves in an accident, but also due to the fact that bicycle accident cases may not be treated the same as other vehicle-related accidents. In fact, many bicycle accidents are never even reported to the police. In other cases, when they are reported, insurance companies and law enforcement can be quick to lay blame on the bicyclist rather than on the negligent driver. In a state like New Jersey, which operates under a "comparative negligence" law, such actions can be detrimental to the victim of a bicycle accident and their families.
