New Jersey Car Crashes
If you’ve been hurt in a car crash, you know first-hand how difficult the aftermath can be, especially if the crash caused severe injuries or tragic fatalities. Although you may be feeling alone after being seriously injured in a traumatizing car crash, you are far from it. As New Jersey car accident statistics reveal, thousands of people become involved and injured in severe New Jersey car wrecks every year.
In fact, an article from Forbes magazine named New Jersey home to the “second worst drivers” throughout the entire United States. In one recently recorded year, over 276,000 total auto collisions happened throughout the Garden State. Of those accidents, nearly 60,000 caused injuries, and over 500 resulted in death. More than 215,000 led to property damage. Information from the New Jersey Department of Transportation shows that 10 New Jersey counties accounted for more than 75% of the total motor vehicle collisions in the state.
