Car & Truck Accidents

New Jersey Car Accident Injury Law Firm

Our Law Office has been devoted to representing victims of all types of collisions involving cars, buses and trucks since 1975.  Our clients include residents of New Jersey in cities such as Marlton, Camden, Cherry Hill and Southampton. We also represent out of state drivers who get into accidents while in New Jersey, such as:

  • truck drivers,
  • drivers and passengers in cars, trucks, buses,
  • pedestrians, and
  • operators of motorcycles and bicycles.

Our clients have been injured in many ways as a result of traffic collisions on all of the major roads and highways, such as the New Jersey Turnpike, the Garden State Expressway and the Atlantic City Expressway, throughout the State of New Jersey.

NJ Intersection Accidents

Many accidents happen at intersections, whether it is an intersection with a stop sign or a traffic light. A driver traveling through an intersection may be t-boned by another car because the other driver did not stop at the stop sign.

NJ Rear-End Accidents

Another common type of NJ auto accident is a rear-end accident.  A typical client represented by our office would be the driver of a car stopped for a traffic light or stop sign in Marlton, NJ and struck in the rear. Another scenario is when a traffic jam on the New Jersey Turnpike causes traffic to come to a complete stop. A stopped car may be rear-ended by a truck because the truck driver is distracted, i.e., talking on his cell phone, and does not realize traffic has come to a stop.

Other Types of New Jersey Car or Truck Accidents

Other types of accidents result from negligent actions of other drivers, such as:

  • failing to yield the right-of-way,
  • improper lane change,
  • speeding,
  • inattention,
  • improper use of a cell phone,
  • alcohol/drug influence, and
  • other forms of carelessness and neglect.

Injuries Common in Car Accidents

Not only are involved drivers injured in car accidents, passengers in the car may also be injured as well.  In addition, pedestrians hit by cars or trucks are often seriously injured.

Fractured or broken bones are common as are spine and head injuries. In many cases, an ordinarily healthy driver or passenger sustains what appears to be a minor neck, back, knee, shoulder, elbow, hand, foot or jaw injury.  Oftentimes, these types of injuries are referred to as “soft tissue,” but in fact, are far worse. Discs in the neck and back may become herniated or protrude (this is commonly referred to as a slipped disc).

Injuries to arms, shoulders and knees may include trauma to the tendons, nerves, muscles, bones and joints. Head injuries include concussions, damage to brain tissues or worse. Injured parties need immediate medical assistance.

No-fault insurance will apply and often triggers a complicated process that must be completed at an early stage or victims will be burdened by unpaid bills. If you are involved in a motorcycle, bus or truck accident as a pedestrian or a passenger, no-fault insurance becomes more technical.

This office has represented victims since 1975 on a regular and daily basis for all types of car, truck, bus, bicycle, motorcycle or pedestrian accidents. We spend the time attending seminars to learn the anatomy, physiology and function of the body in order to understand the specific injuries and for the purpose of preparing medical presentations to juries. Film studies must often be reviewed, analyzed and preserved. A substantial part of our representation relates to continual learning of medicine.

Many Car, Truck & Bus Accidents Occur on New Jersey Highways

Many serious collisions take place on the following New Jersey highways:

  • New Jersey Turnpike,
  • Interstate 295,
  • Garden State Parkway, and
  • Atlantic City Expressway.

In addition, car, truck and bus accidents occur on local roadways. At high speeds, such accidents can result in catastrophic injuries.

Complex New Jersey Car, Truck and Bus Accident Cases

Oftentimes, serious injuries occur due to the carelessness of more than one driver.  All cases must be worked on in an expeditious manner so that vital evidence is not lost.  We concentrate on conducting investigations and gathering crucial documents including police reports, photographs, and witness statements as quickly as possible so that we can prove the necessary elements to be successful.
