We are a highly mobile society; in fact, Americans spend an extraordinary amount of our lives in our cars. We commute to our workplaces, drive our children to school and other activities, run errands, take trips–the reasons for driving are essentially endless. It is not surprising, then, that with the widespread activity of driving comes a high prevalence of accidents involving motor vehicles. Consider this: according to the New Jersey Department of Transportation, there were 290,212 motor vehicle crashes in New Jersey in 2014, with 11,614 in Somerset County alone. With Route 22, Route 202, Route 206, Interstate 78, Interstate 287, and Route 18 running through Somerset County, the potential sites for accidents abound. Fortunately, the majority of car accidents are relatively minor, perhaps damaging the vehicle(s) involved but leaving the drivers and their passengers unharmed. However, when these accidents are more serious, they can spell life-altering implications, life-threatening injuries, and even death.

Drawing from the expert knowledge of reconstructionists, engineers, doctors and other specialists, our firm will build a compelling case to support your claim for compensation. When pursuing damages in your case, we may seek compensation for:

Costs to repair damaged property
Pain and suffering
Punitive damages (punishment for reckless behavior)
