Severity of Car Accidents in New Jersey
Injuries often appear over time, not just in the days following the accident. In a relatively minor car accident, the injured person may choose not to see a doctor or consult a lawyer. However, this is almost always a bad decision, as injuries often appear weeks or months after the accident itself. If you don’t act quickly enough following a car accident, you may not be able to recover as much as you truly need in the coming months for your injuries.
While automobile manufacturers continually try to make cars safer for their occupants, car accidents occur at a very high rate each year in New Jersey and across the nation. You can sustain many injuries as a result of having been in a car accident, including the following:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Chest injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Facial lacerations and permanent scarring
- Psychological trauma
- Internal bleeding and organ injuries

After you’ve been seriously injured in a car accident, you may quickly find yourself in serious financial trouble, facing piling medical bills and no income coming in since you cannot work due to your injuries. You may have incurred damages due to:

Of course, car accidents sometimes occur without the negligence of a driver, such as due to broken pavement or potholes, severe weather conditions, including snow, ice, and fog – all of which are common in New Jersey, improper maintenance of a vehicle, or defective cars or auto parts.

Frequently Asked Questions About Car Accident Injuries in New Jersey
New Jersey has a no-fault car insurance system, but you still may be able to file suit if you were injured in a car accident. No-fault insurance means that if you are injured in a car accident, you do not have to file a lawsuit against the other driver to obtain payment for the medical treatment for your injuries. Instead, most of the time, your auto insurance pays for your medical treatment and certain out-of-pocket expenses. In most instances, you can still file a lawsuit against the other driver for your pain and suffering and economic losses.
Yes. We have represented people for years who have been injured in car accidents in Mercer County, Burlington County, Somerset County, Middlesex County, and throughout New Jersey. We have the experience and perspective to help you get the maximum compensation from your claim.
