Negligent Drivers in New Jersey
Negligent drivers are one of the main causes of New Jersey motor vehicle accidents that end in serious personal injury. Whether it’s a driver who is texting, speeding, or simply not following driving laws, their flagrant indifference toward others frequently leads to accidents that could have been avoided.
In New Jersey, negligent driving is so common the state has specific laws governing the offense.
If it is determined that the driver who caused your injuries is guilty of negligent driving, referred to as negligence per se, then a jury only has to consider if that negligence was the cause of your injuries and how much recovery is needed to make you whole.
In legal terms, making someone whole means they have been fully compensated for all of their damages.
As an injured victim, you may be entitled to collect damages for your:
- Medical bills
- Restrictions, disabilities, and permanent injuries
- Pain and suffering
- Lost income
- Vehicle replacement or repairs
- Spousal claim damages
