Car Accidents in New Jersey

Car accidents occur every day in New Jersey. Quite often, victims who are involved in these accidents are left with significant injuries. There are many instances where people are left with significant injuries due to accidents caused by negligent and careless drivers. Far too often, speeding motorists crash into other vehicles in the state of New Jersey. When drivers are in a rush to get to their destination, they can cause serious accidents that leave victims with devastating and life-changing injuries.

Unfortunately, many accidents take place at intersections. In fact, statistics provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) show that approximately 40 percent of all motor vehicle accidents across the country take place at intersections. In many cases, these accidents are a result of drivers who fail to provide other drivers the right of way to travel. We see far too many intersection accidents take place due to drivers who run red lights or pass stop signs. When drivers do not allow other vehicles to safely pass through the area, they can crash into them and cause harm.

Unfortunately, the aftermath of a motor vehicle accident can take a significant toll on victims and their families. Victims often struggle physically as the victims and their families suffer mentally and financially.
