NJ Highway Accidents Often Lead to Serious Accidents and Injuries

Accidents on New Jersey highways such as the NJ Turnpike, Garden State Parkway or AC Expressway often lead to serious injuries.  One of the reasons is due to the cars’ high speed of travel, i.e., 65 mph.  When cars collide at such high speeds, the accidents are more serious, and the injuries are also more serious as opposed to accidents on local roadways.

Accidents that involve a car and a truck or tractor-trailer can be fatal.  A car violently colliding with a truck or tractor-trailer at high speed can cause the vehicles to overturn, and individuals may sustain catastrophic injuries or die as a result.

Drivers who operate tractor-trailers or car-carrier trucks and are involved in auto accidents are most likely working at the time of the accident, delivering goods.  Generally, injured NJ drivers and passengers will make medical benefits claims (PIP claims) with their own car insurance companies.  However, injured drivers who were hurt while on the job will make a workers’ compensation claim with the employer.  A worker’s compensation claim will pay for the injured driver’s medical expenses and a percentage of lost wage.  In addition, all individuals injured in car accidents, i.e., drivers and passengers, even if they were injured while working, may file NJ car accident lawsuits against the at fault drivers to recover damages for their injuries.

However, NJ car accident law is very complicated and injured drivers and passengers should consult an experienced car accident lawyer to discuss their legal rights and options.
