Your awareness can prevent motorcycle collisions

When you are busy driving, it may be easy for your mind to wander as you begin thinking about where you are going or what you are doing in the coming hours. Even more distracting can be things like passengers talking, your phone alerting you to a new message or even your decision to eat lunch while driving. Staying alert is incredibly important for your own protection, as well as that of other motorists, particularly those who are on motorcycles which may be more difficult to see. At Escandon, Fernicola, Anderson & Covelli, we are aware of the dangers of riding a motorcycle in New Jersey. 

Why are motorcyclists more likely to be injured in an accident?

Whether as a means of transportation or strictly as a recreational vehicle, a motorcycle offers you benefits that cars and trucks simply cannot provide. However, if you choose to ride a motorcycle in New Jersey, you also face a greater risk of death or injury in the event of an accident than those who drive other motor vehicles.

Overcoming the grief of losing your loved one

The sudden death of your loved one in a violent New Jersey car accident has left you feeling broken, lost and doubtful that you will ever feel completely "normal" ever again. With the funeral complete and everyone's lives presumably going on as usual, it is now time for you to face the relentless emotions of having suffered such a significant loss. At Escandon, Fernicola, Anderson & Covelli, we are aware of the toll that grief can take on families who have lost a loved one. 

Keeping yourself and your passenger safe on a motorcycle

You have recently purchased a brand-new motorcycle and are anticipating the many adventures you will have cruising the open roads of New Jersey. One of the aspects of owning your own bike that you are most excited about is being able to take passengers out to experience the thrill of biking. At Escandon, Fernicola, Anderson & Covelli, we are experienced with the risks that motorcyclists face. 

When should you call 911 to report a reckless driver?

You are on your way to work, driving your usual route through New Jersey's busiest thoroughfares when you encounter a reckless driver. You notice that the driver appears to be speeding, dodging other vehicles as he or she quickly darts in and out of traffic. You hang back and try to decipher whether or not you are overreacting or if the driver is indeed posing a threat to other motorists. Should you call 911? Understanding when is appropriate to call 911 is important to protect yourself and others without creating an inconvenience for first responders.
