New Jersey Car Wrecks

New Jersey car crash statistics are alarming. Each year, more than 1,000 people are killed in auto accidents in the Garden State. Despite a significant decrease in the total number of wrecks since the mid-1990s, NJ roadways still see thousands of auto accidents each year, as reported by NJDOT. 

The car crash attorneys at Metro Law understand what crash victims go through. Medical bills pile up while the severity of their injuries keeps them from returning to work. With lost income comes stress, anger, and guilt, as some injured victims were the sole provider for their families and feel the need to get back to work as fast as possible for that reason. The only way to get what you need after being injured in an accident, especially if it was caused by negligence, is to hire a skilled New Jersey personal injury lawyer to get you compensation and hold the other driver accountable.
