Vehicle Collisions in New Jersey

Hawthorne, NJ - Fatal Accident With Additional Injuries on Rt 208 at Goffle Rd

New Jersey’s congested roadways are just one of the many reasons for its high rate of vehicle crashes.

A report issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that, since 2015, the United States has seen an uptick of over 11% in car accidents. As the country’s population grows unchecked, the number of new, inexperienced, irate, thoughtless, distracted, and reckless drivers on the road grows right along with it.  

When car accidents happen, there are often multiple victims that sustain grievous bodily injuries and serious damage to their vehicles. If you acted responsibly during a multi-car crash, then you will not be held accountable, meaning you will probably be eligible to collect compensation for your losses from both the at-fault driver as well as your insurance company.

Our firm has fought on behalf of their injured clients to make sure their legal rights are guarded after being harmed in an avoidable accident within the state. After a multi-vehicle accident, contact our car accident lawyers in New Jersey at (800) 469-6476 to see how we can help you.
