Traffic Fatalities in New Jersey
Car crashes in New York and New Jersey, two of the most heavily-traversed states in our nation, leave thousands of people seriously injured annually. Regrettably, many victims face more than just physical and emotional impacts. Injured parties are often left to deal with overwhelming financial consequences due to medical bills, lost earnings, and various other expenses and losses they face.
Needless to say, after being hurt in an accident, you must explore all legal options available for your circumstances to help you move forward and safeguard your legal rights.
Following your crash, you may be able to recover compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the person who is responsible for the accident. Working with an experienced personal injury attorney can build a strong case that will hold the at-fault party responsible for your injuries. Your lawyer will work to negotiate a fair settlement with the at-fault party’s insurance company or take your case to trial if necessary.
In addition to helping you recover financially, filing a personal injury lawsuit can also help bring some closure after an accident. Knowing that you have taken action to hold the at-fault party accountable can be empowering and help you move on with your life.
To prevail, you must prove that the defendant engaged in some form of negligence while operating the vehicle, and as a result of their negligence, the accident took place. This could be done by showing that the driver was impaired by drugs or alcohol, speeding, or engaging in another reckless action.
