New Jersey Car Accident Lawyer
According to the New Jersey Dept. of Transportation, there have been 250,000 to 300,000 motor vehicle accidents on New Jersey roadways in each of the last 15 years. Approximately (25%) percent of these accidents have caused personal injury, and nearly 10,000 people have lost their lives. Most of these accidents may be classified within one or more of the following categories:
NJ Car Accidents – Private passenger car crashes account for the vast majority of the 250,000 to 300,000 motor vehicle accidents that occur on New Jersey roadways each year, and for the injuries and fatalities resulting from those accidents.
NJ Truck Accidents – According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, approximately 50,000 people are injured and 5,000 are killed in truck accidents each year. Nearly all of those injured and killed are drivers and passengers in cars, and most of the accidents take place on rural roads in daylight during weekends.
NJ Motorcycle Accidents – According to a report released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration , nearly 100,000 motorcycle drivers are injured and 5,000 are killed in accidents each year. Many of these accidents are the fault of the motorcyclist, but over forty (40%) percent are the result of cars turning left into the motorcyclist’s right of way.
NJ DWI Accidents – Every year, there are approximately 25,000 New Jersey DWI arrests by state and local police trying to protect travelers from serious injury. Over the last 20 years, nearly 4000 people have died, and many more have been seriously injured, as a result of drunk drivers, many of whom were served too much alcohol by bars, in violation of New Jersey Liquor Liability Laws.
NJ Lawsuit-Verbal Threshold Accidents – New Jersey Lawsuit-Verbal Threshold Laws limit the right of most New Jersey residents to make claims for compensation due to personal injuries arising from auto accidents. Those who’ve elected the lawsuit-verbal threshold option as part of their own auto insurance policies may not make claims for compensation arising out of an accident caused by the driver of a non-commerical vehicle unless they’ve suffered one of the following types of personal injuries:
2. Dismemberment of a body part
3. Loss of a baby in the womb
4. Significant disfigurement or scarring
5. A displaced bone fracture
6. Scientific proof of probable permanent injury to some other body part.
