Car Accidents

Protecting the Rights of the Injured

The New Jersey Department of Transportation reports that there were just over 290,000 motor vehicle crashes during 2014. Car accidents in Hudson County are an unfortunate fact of life in modern society and frequently leave the people involved with serious injuries that affect them for months or even years. Fortunately for victims, New Jersey law entitles people who have been hurt by the negligent acts of other people to recover compensation for their injuries. In cases where one party is clearly at fault, it may not even be necessary for victims to file a legal claim in order to obtain compensation. For this reason, anyone that has been hurt in a car accident should speak with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.

Car Accident Injuries in Hudson County

Car Accident Injuries in Hudson County

Car accidents are capable of leaving the people involved with extremely serious injuries. Some of the more common injuries that victims sustain in car crashes are detailed below.

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) –

    TBIs can occur when a car accident victim hits his or her head against an external object. In some cases, a TBI can actually happen even if a person’s head simply snaps back and forth on the neck with sufficient force. In serious cases, TBIs can cause extremely severe complications, including cognitive or physical problems that may have a significant impact on a person’s life.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries –

    Spinal cord injuries, or SCIs, are another extremely serious injury that often affects car accident victims. The spinal cord is the bundle of nerves that allows the brain to communicate with the rest of the body, and any damage to it can cause significant problems including loss of sensation and muscle weakness. In some instances, SCIs can leave victims completely paralyzed below the site of the injury.
  • Burns –

    Many car accident victims in Hudson County sustain serious burns as a result of their accident, whether from fires, explosions, or because of the explosive charges that are involved with the deployment of an airbag. Burns can be extremely painful, require intensive medical treatment, and often leave victims with significant scarring that has an impact on their appearance and mental well-being.

Compensation for Injuries Sustained in a Car Accident

Individuals who are involved in car accidents often experience significant financial and personal loss as a result of the crash. Fortunately, our state’s personal injury law allows people who are injured in accidents caused by others to recover compensation for the losses they incur as a result of someone else’s negligence. Some of the examples of the kinds of damages that are often available in a New Jersey car accident case are discussed below:

  • Medical expenses –
    Medical expenses in Hudson County are often the most significant source of recovery in a car accident case. In cases where victims require surgery or hospitalization, these expenses can rise well into the tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. Importantly, victims are entitled to recovery even if their own insurance covered their expenses.
  • Property damage –

    Most car accidents leave vehicles with thousands of dollars in damage and a car accident claim usually results in compensation for these losses.
  • Lost income – Many car accident victims are unable to work for a significant amount of time and lose a significant amount of income as a result. Fortunately, New Jersey law allows victims to recover both the income they have already lost as well as income that they will lose in the future.
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering –

    The injuries that car accident victims often sustain can cause significant physical pain and emotional suffering. While these losses can be difficult to determine, an experienced attorney can help establish their financial value to a judge or jury.
