Car Accidents in New Jersey

Motor vehicle collisions occur far too frequently in the state of New Jersey. Every year, accidents leave tens of thousands of people with injuries. A significant number of these accidents take place at intersections that are located on busy roads. When drivers are not fully aware of their surroundings while operating their vehicles, they run the risk of crashing into other vehicles and causing severe harm. Unfortunately, recklessness and negligence are leading factors in many accidents across our state.

When innocent victims are injured as a result of automobile collisions, they often have to go through medical care. Many victims have to remain hospitalized for several days or even weeks after their accidents. When victims suffer from traumatic brain injuries, internal organ injuries, and spinal cord fractures, they may require medical care forever. Unfortunately, the impact of a motor vehicle accident can be far-reaching and incredibly devastating.
