Why would I hire a NJ car accident lawyer?
Some people wonder, if I get into a car crash, do I need an attorney? For a minor fender bender, hiring a lawyer probably is not necessary. However, if your injuries are severe, the property damage is extensive, and the accident was not your fault, it makes sense to get a seasoned car accident lawyer on your side.
Some of the reasons include:
- You may be able to get a higher settlement from the insurance company.
- You won’t have to deal with insurance adjusters on your own.
- You probably do not know all the laws and statutes that could help your case.
- You won’t have to appear in front of a judge alone.
- A lawyer will investigate the crash and properly assess the value of your case.

Types of cases we have handled
Our New Jersey team of car crash attorneys has successfully resolved claims involving:
- Intersection collisions – If someone made an illegal left turn, sped through an intersection, or did not follow traffic rules for four-way stops, intersection collisions occur.
- Speeding accidents – When drivers ignore posted speed limits, they put their lives, your life, and their passengers’ lives at risk.
- Side impact collisions – Also known as “t-bone” accidents, occur when someone hits the side of your car, and the damage is typically extensive — and you might not have side impact airbags to protect you.
- Highway accidents – High speeds mean high risk. Highway accidents can be particularly severe because of the sheer speed at which you and the other driver were travelling.
- Rollover accidents – SUVs may be susceptible to rollovers on sharp turns, especially cars and trucks with design defects. If a manufacturer defect caused your rollover, we can go after the car company responsible.
No matter how or why your auto accident occurred, our lawyers can assist you.
Important concepts to understand about NJ car crash cases:
- Distracted driving – Anytime a driver was not paying attention to the road because of an external or internal distraction, the results can be catastrophic. Texting, talking on the phone, answering emails, eating, putting on makeup, talking to passengers, and other distracting activities take away your eyes and full attention from the road.
- Negligent driver: “Negligence” is a legal concept that means a person failed in their duty to reasonably prevent harm in others. It means they were reckless, careless, or intentionally misbehaving. To prove your case, you must prove the other driver was negligent and therefore liable (responsible) for your damages.
- Drunk driver victim: If an intoxicated driver hit you, they are facing both criminal and civil charges.
Our attorneys can help you understand all the aspects of your car accident case.
