Car and truck accidents often happen on New Jersey highways, such as the NJ Turnpike, AC Expressway, Interstate 295 and the Garden State Parkway.  Because cars are traveling at high speeds when accidents happen, injured individuals often sustain serious injuries, including, but not limited to:

  • traumatic brain injuries,
  • multiple fractures throughout the body,
  • back injuries, and/or
  • neck injuries.

In addition to being physically injured, victims of NJ car and truck accidents are often overwhelmed.  Serious injuries put financial strain on injured car accident victims.

Pursuant to NJ car accident law, victims of car accidents may be entitled to recover the following:

  • medical bills,
  • lost wages,
  • pain and suffering, and
  • other out-of-pocket expenses.

NJ Car Accident Injury Lawyer Discusses Medical Expenses

Though medical treatment and expenses for injuries sustained in car or truck accidents are covered by the injured individuals’ own PIP benefits,  PIP benefits may be exhausted if extensive treatments are, and continue to be, necessary.  Therefore, victims begin to pile up medical expenses for hospital stays, medications, surgeries, etc. If a NJ car accident lawsuit is filed, these medical expense may be recovered.

NJ Car Accident Injury Lawyer Discusses Lost wages

Because of the serious injuries sustained, injured individuals in car or truck accidents may no longer be able to work for long periods of time; therefore, they have no income.  Lost income may also be recovered in a lawsuit.

NJ Car Accident Injury Lawyer Discusses Pain & Suffering

Pain and suffering refers to the physical and emotional stress caused by the injuries.  Injured victims may be compensated for physical and mental anguish as a result of the crash.  An example of physical anguish may be disfigurement, and an example of mental anguish may be depression or anxiety.

NJ Car Accident Injury Lawyer Discusses Other Out of Pocket Expenses

As a result of the car or truck accident, injured victims may no longer be able to perform daily chores, such as cooking, washing the laundry or cleaning the house.  In such instances, injured car accident victims may hire outside help to perform these chores.  Again, these costs may be recovered in a lawsuit.
