New Jersey Car Accident Lawyer
Seasoned Representation for Accident Victims Since 1987
In 2015, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released a large study that found that 94% of car accidents were due to human error—a larger number of them due to distraction. In a separate report, the NHTSA revealed that 2016 saw the largest increase in highway fatalities in over 50 years: 10.4 percent. That’s 17,775 deaths in six months, with safety experts blaming smartphone use.
That means if you were hit by another driver, the odds are that they’re at fault—which means a New Jersey car accident attorney can hold them accountable in court. Your settlement could pay for your medical care, lost income, pain and suffering, and other damages for the rest of your life. If you were a passenger, you’re eligible to sue the at-fault driver for the losses you’ve suffered regardless of who that is.
Having a lawyer on your car accident claim can help you recover higher payout from the insurance company. A report from the Insurance Research Council found that hiring an attorney resulted in 40 percent higher payouts* than people who chose to do it themselves. Why is that? Because insurance companies know they can take advantage of people who aren’t trained in personal injury law.
Insurance adjusters are trained to ensure that your car accident claim gets as little money as possible. Their accident investigators, medical experts, and lawyers are all determined to convince you that whatever they offer is the best you can get—but it’s not. Our investigators and experts build cases that force insurance companies to offer our clients far more than they originally offered. When insurance companies are facing a level playing field, they’re forced to offer the true value of the claim.

Q:How is a personal injury claim different from a personal injury lawsuit?
A:If you wish to hold the person responsible for your injuries liable, it is important to know the differences between a claim and a lawsuit. A personal injury claim is the first step, when your attorney files against the parties responsible or liable for the injury. A personal injury lawsuit comes after the claim, taking place in a court of law, if the original claim did not yield the compensation desired by the plaintiffs.
Q:What is negligence?
A:Negligence is one of the key aspects of any personal injury case. Negligence occurs when a person or party does not act with the proper amount of care and caution that a reasonable person would use to prevent harm or injury to another individual, or when the person or party does something harmful that a careful and reasonable person would not have done in a similar situation.
Q:How important is negligence to my case?
A:Negligence is perhaps the most integral factor in an injury claim or lawsuit, and in order to fight for justice against the liable party (also called the defendant), you must first be able to prove their negligence and that it is the direct cause of your injuries.
