Accidents in New Jersey
Every year, more than 60,000 people sustain injuries in traffic-related accidents across New Jersey. These accidents often force victims into undergoing extensive medical treatment for their injuries. Many victims deal with unbearable pain and suffering. Living in the New York and New Jersey area means you are very familiar with the hustle and bustle of our roads. Each day, thousands of people travel throughout the area for pleasure and business. Although we want to believe that other people sharing the road have our best interests in mind, this is not always true. In fact, distracted driving, impairment, reckless driving, and other driver actions account for nearly 80% of all traffic-related accidents we see each year. Many people involved in collisions are left with life-altering injuries that force them into local hospitals where they have to go through emergency surgery and spend days hospitalized.
Although many treatment options are available to help victims in the aftermath of collisions, thousands of accident victims are left permanently impaired and forced to deal with endless mental, physical, and financial consequences.
