Automobiles, trucks, motorcycles and buses are involved in accidents every day. While statistics show that safe driving campaigns and safer cars being manufactured are working to reduce the number of fatal motor vehicle accidents, thousands still occur nationwide every year. Of the more than 32,000 fatal accidents that occur in the United States each year, it has been estimated that approximately 500 of those occur in New Jersey. Of course, the number of non-fatal motor vehicle accidents that occur in New Jersey every year is exponentially higher.
When a motor vehicle accident results in serious injuries and is caused by the negligence of another person, you may be entitled to compensation for your economic and non-economic damages.
Injuries Caused by Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents can be severe and life-changing. Injuries can range from herniated discs and broken bones to traumatic brain injury, permanent disfigurement and even death. Victims may be unable to work to support their family, and forced to deal with crushing medical bills for hospitalization, treatment and rehabilitation. Dealing with insurance companies during this time can be frustrating and overwhelming, and New Jersey’s no-fault system of insurance can be confusing. We handle cases involving:
Motor Vehicle Accident Law in Bergen County
The New Jersey Automobile Insurance Cost Reduction Act (“AICRA”) is a comprehensive body of statutory law relating to automobile insurance and the right to sue for automobile injuries in New Jersey. New Jersey is a “no-fault” state, meaning that an injured person may look to their own insurance policy for immediate medical benefits and coverage following an automobile accident. Additionally, under most standard insurance policies in New Jersey, there exists a limited right to sue the negligent party or parties who caused the accident.
An experienced Motor Vehicle Accident lawyer can analyze the facts of your case, identify all possible benefits and pursue the compensation that your deserve. We know the law and can help to make you whole again.
Legal Representation Can Increase Your Chances of Success
Often, victims of motor vehicle accidents will attempt to go it alone on an auto claim, hoping that an insurance company will do the right thing, pay their out-of-pocket expenses, compensate them for non-economic damages such as pain and suffering, etc. However, rarely do insurance companies have your best interests in mind and, by not seeking representation, you could severely hurt your chances for success on a claim.
