Car Accidents in New Jersey

In New Jersey, it is unfortunately common to see people suffer serious injuries as a result of motor vehicle accidents. Crashes involving two or more vehicles are more likely to end in serious injuries. The force of impact can result in severe damage to the involved vehicles and injuries like broken bones, burns, traumatic brain injuries, back injuries, or even internal organ damage to those inside.

Suffering severe injuries in crashes does not only impact a victim immediately but long-term as well. There are many cases where people are harmed in crashes and never return to work. This is because the chances of suffering injuries that result in permanent disabilities are greatly increased during crashes.
