Vehicle Crashes in New Jersey
When two or more vehicles collide, there are usually several victims that endure serious physical injuries and damage to their vehicles. If you were following the rules of the road during a multi-vehicle crash, then you will not be liable for damages. This means you will most likely be entitled to collect financial compensation for your losses from your insurance provider and the negligent driver.
A publication issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that, since 2015, the United States has seen an increase of more than 11% in auto accidents. As the nation’s population grows unchecked, the number of new, inexperienced, rage-fueled, irresponsible, oblivious, and reckless drivers on the road grows right along with it. Our congested roadways are just one of the many reasons for the state’s increased rate of vehicle crashes.
