Vehicle Collisions in New Jersey
Although vehicle collisions are deeply disquieting events, they happen every day in every state nationwide and New Jersey is no exception. Every time you get behind the wheel, you have no way of foreseeing when or if some reckless driver is going to crash into your vehicle, leaving you seriously injured.
A report issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that, since 2015, the United States has seen an uptick of over 11% in multi-car collisions. As the country’s population grows unchecked, the number of new, inexperienced, irate, thoughtless, distracted, and reckless drivers on the road grows right along with it. Our congested roadways are just one of the myriad reasons for the higher rate of multi-vehicle crashes.
When multi-car accidents happen, there are often multiple victims that sustain grievous bodily injuries and serious damage to their vehicles. If you acted responsibly during a multi-car crash, then you will not be held accountable, meaning you will probably be eligible to collect compensation for your losses from both the at-fault driver as well as your insurance company.
Our firm has fought vigorously on behalf of their injured clients to make sure their legal rights are guarded after being harmed in an avoidable accident within the state.
