Mercer, NJ - Frances Sgro Identified as Deceased Victim of 10-Car Accident on Rt 130

Although rear-end accidents are often thought of as trivial, most of them cause critical injuries to the occupants of the struck vehicle. These types of crashes usually result in serious neck and back injuries which can be debilitating and adversely impact victims for the rest of their lives.

Accidents that involve three or more vehicles can also originate from a single rear-end crash. These accidents are often referred to as pile-up or chain-reaction accidents. They usually occur when the second vehicle crashes into the rear of the first, initiating a domino effect of successive rear-end collisions.    

An experienced rear-end accident lawyer will study any and all defenses that could apply to your case by reviewing the facts of the crash, interviewing witnesses, and skillfully and shrewdly questioning the defendant during their deposition.

Rear-end collisions are one of the most frequent kinds of car accidents across the state. If you have been injured in a chain-reaction accident, an experienced rear-end accident lawyer in New Jersey can help you get the financial compensation to which you are entitled.
