Motor Vehicle Accidents in New Jersey

Lawyer Handling New Jersey Car Accidents

In terms of "vehicles per square mile," New Jersey is the most congested state of the Union. That makes our roadways dangerous for anyone who wants to go from point A to point B – whether in a car, on a bike, in a truck or on foot.

If you or a loved one suffered injuries on the road, you deserve compensation. It can be difficult to make the insurance company pay. An experienced lawyer can help you, from the beginning, understand how medical bills get paid (including the maze of “no fault” rules and laws affecting payment of medical bills) and then recover compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages or profits, loss of enjoyment of life, and any residual disability.

Have You Tried Dealing With the Insurance Company on Your Own?

Many of my clients never expected (or wanted) to have to hire an attorney. After first suffering serious injuries in a motor vehicle of some sort, they tried for months to obtain reasonable compensation from one or more insurance carriers. In the end, all their efforts only resulted in more frustration.

You bought an auto insurance policy and for years you've been keeping up with the high payments. Now that you've been injured, you have rights under that policy.
