Negligent Drivers in New Jersey
Negligent driving is so common in New Jersey, the state even has specific laws surrounding the offense.
Negligent drivers are one of the leading causes of New Jersey auto accidents that end in serious personal injury. Whether it’s a driver who is speeding, texting, or simply not following traffic laws, their blatant indifference toward others often leads to collisions that could have been avoided.
As an injured victim, you may be entitled to collect:
- Damages for your medical care
- Damages for your disabilities, restrictions, and permanent injuries
- Damages for your pain and suffering
- Damages for your lost income
- Damages for repairs to your vehicle
- Spousal claim damages
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.
If you or a family member were involved in a New Jersey accident caused by a negligent driver and sustained serious injuries as a result, you most likely have questions regarding your rights. You deserve answers from a reputable personal injury lawyer who can give you valuable insights that are specific to your situation.
