Motorcycle Accidents

George Clooney was injured in a Motorcycle accident on Saturday. Clooney suffered broken ribs and bruises while trying to pass a vehicle in the right lane. In New Jersey, it is illegal to pass a vehicle in the right lane, but it is unclear whether or not the car involved used his turn signal. New Jersey is likely a comparitive negligence state, which means Clooney and the driver of the car will be judged on their comparitive fault. So, if Clooney is 49% negligent for passing in the right lane, but the driver of the car is 51% negligent for not using his turn signal, the driver will have to compensate Clooney for the percentage difference.
