Everyday, auto accidents occur across New Jersey and New York, from Atlantic County, NJ, Brick, NJ, Camden, NJ, to the Bronx, NY, and Brooklyn, NY. Each and every auto accident is different, and each results in differing levels of damages, injuries, and losses. While most auto accidents are caused by another driver’s negligence or momentary lapse of attention, some accidents are caused by reckless behavior. Common acts of negligence include failing to yield the right of way, rear-ending a vehicle, running a stop light or stop sign, or an unsafe lane change. Common acts of reckless disregard occur when a driver operates a vehicle at extreme high speeds, drives under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or races another vehicle. In New Jersey and New York, if the other driver is negligent, you may be entitled to property damage, medical bills and expenses, pain and suffering, mental anguish, lost wages, and/or lost income. If the negligent driver was also reckless, the victim may be entitled to punitive damages or special damages, in addition to his or her actual damages.
Our law firm and catastrophic injury lawyers have represented individuals throughout New Jersey and New York, including Cherry Hill, NJ, Princeton, NJ, Trenton, NJ, Vineland, NJ, as well as Manhattan, NY, Queens, NY, and Staten Island, NY.
Our team of lawyers not only understands the rules of the road, but we also work on a regular basis with investigators and/or experts to determine answers to complex scientific and/or engineering questions that can form the underlying cause of a loss. Over the years, we have found that determining these answers can unravel how an accident occurred on the roadways, highways, intersections, and who was at fault.

- Rear end collisions
- Passenger injuries
- Pedestrian accidents
- Intersection accidents
- Hit and run
- Motorcycle accidents
- Drunk driving losses

Do you have a claim?
After a car accident, you may be confused about whether or not you have a claim for compensation. To be eligible to collect damages, your accident must meet two criteria: (1) The accident was at least partially caused by another party’s negligence and (2) the accident caused you or a family member to suffer serious physical injuries.
As with most liability claims, determining who is at fault in a traffic accident is determining who was negligent. Fault issues can be complicated. Our experienced attorneys will help you determine who was at fault. We will obtain the police report on your loss, review the traffic laws, and interview witnesses in order to determine who was at fault for your accident.
No matter what caused your auto accident, your injuries are your biggest concern. As NJ & NY auto accident attorneys, some of the most common injuries our clients suffer in highway accidents include:
- Broken bones
- Cuts and lacerations
- Head, neck, and spinal injuries
- Internal bleeding and organ damage
- Paralysis and nerve damage
Our car accident attorneys can answer any questions you may have about your accident. In addition, we help in arranging for clients to receive the best medical care available.
What to do when the insurance company calls you
Once they are notified of your accident, representatives from either your insurance or the at-fault party’s insurance company may contact you. It’s best if you avoid speaking with them. Innocent comments can be manipulated to make it look like the accident was your fault or used to claim that your injuries aren’t severe. They may also try to pressure you into quickly signing a settlement worth far less than you actually need.
An experienced NJ & NY auto accident attorney will take into account your current and future medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses, so you get the compensation you need to cover the true costs of your accident. We’re used to dealing with insurance company tactics, so when the insurance company calls, hang up and contact us instead. We’ll help you figure out whether or not a settlement offer is fair, and we’ll talk to the insurance company for you.
