Car Accidents in New Jersey
Every year, tens of thousands of auto accidents take place in the state of New Jersey that result in injuries. Sadly, many innocent people are left with severe injuries due to the negligence of other motorists who are sharing the road. Various factors contribute to the harm they suffer, such as drivers impaired by drugs or alcohol, engaging in distracting behaviors while driving, and driving while drowsy.
If you find yourself injured in an accident caused by someone else's negligence, you have the option to pursue legal action. Personal injury lawsuits in New Jersey operate under a no-fault system, which means that the responsible driver's insurance provider covers some of the damages resulting from the accident.
However, to obtain full compensation for the remaining damages you face, filing a personal injury lawsuit becomes necessary. In New Jersey, the awards granted in personal injury cases adhere to the comparative negligence doctrine. According to this doctrine, the compensation amount you can receive following an accident will be reduced by the percentage of fault you share. Given the challenges of this legal concept, it is crucial to seek the assistance of an experienced car accident lawyer in New Jersey.
