New Jersey Car Accidents
Car accidents frequently happen throughout the United States and across the state of New Jersey. Every year, millions of Americans suffer serious injuries in auto collisions across the country. These crashes happen due to inclement weather, vehicle malfunctions, road construction, and driver negligence. Of these accident causes, driver negligence is the most common. Drivers constantly choose to operate their vehicles while intoxicated, distracted, fatigued, and traveling at unsafe speeds. This risky behavior can seriously injure or take the lives of anyone a negligent driver encounters on the roadway. When you lose a loved one in a car crash caused by negligence, you are probably going through a very trying time. You deserve to be compensated for your damages and losses, especially if you know that your family member’s death could have been prevented if another person had been more mindful.
Unfortunately, recovering financial compensation after the accidental death of a family member is usually more complicated than filing a petition to the court and receiving the payment by mail. If you wish to attain an advantageous end result from your claim, you must be able to prove:
- A duty of care was owed to your family member by the negligent party
- The duty of care was breached by carelessness, recklessness, or negligence
- The breach directly caused the death of your family member
The surest way to prove these three points is to gather as much relevant evidence as possible. At Metro Law, our skilled lawyers have decades of experience in assembling pertinent evidence pertaining to our client’s cases that will surely prove their innocence and the negligence of another party. When you work with our skilled wrongful death lawyers, our legal team will know where to find this evidence and how to successfully present it.
