Side-Impact Accidents in New Jersey

Hackensack, NJ - Two in Hospital After Collision at Prospect Ave and Central Ave

Proving negligence after a side-impact accident can be contentious because it typically involves a heated he said/she said scenario in which each driver blames the other.  

This is especially true in un-witnessed accidents; those where the only testimony about the circumstances surrounding the crash comes from the drivers themselves. Thus, calling a defendant’s credibility into question is a cornerstone of your case. 

An experienced New Jersey side-impact crash attorney will need to conduct a detailed inquiry of the defendant during their deposition in order to dispute any false claims about which driver failed to exhibit due care. These questions will include factors like time, distance, speed, traffic control devices, and the intersection itself.
