Car Accidents in New Jersey
Countless innocent victims are injured or killed in automobile accidents in New Jersey every single day. These accidents are often caused by drivers who are reckless and negligent. Drunk drivers, distractions, and failing to yield are just some of the most common causes of accidents cited here in New Jersey. Unfortunately, these and other negligent actions continue to cause serious injuries to the victims who are involved.
Common injuries that are reported in New Jersey car accidents include:
- Severe spinal cord injuries that can cause paralysis, either permanent or temporary.
- Severe cuts and lacerations that can lead to permanent disfigurement.
- Severe burn injuries.
- Severe trauma to the head, which can result in memory loss.
- Severely broken bones, which can result in the complete loss of limbs.
Unfortunately, many injured victims will need surgical treatment and extended medical care following the accidents. Motor vehicle accident victims can expect to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical care. It can be hard to cover these costs, especially when victims are forced out of work due to their accidents. This places a burden on the injured person to decide between receiving adequate care and doing without.
