New Jersey Car Crashes
When collisions involving multiple cars happen, usually, multiple people sustain injuries and heavy damage to their property. If you act responsibly while driving, then it is probable that you will not be held accountable for the accident you were involved in. This also means that you are most likely eligible to collect financial compensation for the losses and damages you’re facing in relation to your recent crash. You can usually collect compensation from the driver at-fault as well as the insurance company.
A publication distributed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration concerning American car crashes shows that in the United States, there has been an 11% increase in the number of auto accidents since 2015. As the population in America continues to grow higher, the total number of new, careless, and preoccupied drivers continues to rise as well. The overcrowded roadways in New Jersey are one of the many reasons why you should work with a car crash lawyer in the aftermath of your collision.
Driver negligence has become a serious problem in the United States over the past ten years. It causes more auto accidents than bad weather and vehicle malfunctions combined. Drivers who choose to act negligently do so in many ways, including distraction, fatigue, intoxication, and speeding. For example, speeding takes over 11,000 lives per year, while over 400,000 car crashes are caused by drivers who are distracted every single year.
