Fatal Accidents on the Rise in New Jersey

Serious accidents happen every day in New Jersey. A car overturns in Toms River. A bicyclist is struck by a car in Bridgewater. A Woodbridge man is killed in a crash on the Garden State Parkway. A man dies in a head-on collision on Route 130 in North Brunswick.
In the past year, fatal accidents in New Jersey have increased by more than 18 percent and police are at a loss to explain why.

Accidents and injuries don't only happen on the roads, of course. They can occur while you're at work, at play, at school, or while you're shopping or running errands. Injuries also occur due to negligence by medical and dental professionals and due to defective products. Environmental factors can cause diseases such as emphysema and cancer.

Not all personal injuries are physical. They can also be mental or emotional. You may have a personal injury claim if you've been subjected to verbal abuse or extreme emotional distress.

The surviving members of the family of a person who has been killed may be entitled to recover damages on behalf of the deceased, and to receive compensation for lost support and companionship.
If you've lost a loved one, or if you've been injured yourself, it's important to know your rights.

You may have a claim for compensation if you can show that the person, company, government agency, or other entity that caused the injury failed to exercise due care and that it was foreseeable that this failure could result in the injury that occurred.

Sometimes accidents are caused by a combination of factors, and more than one person or entity may be responsible. You may still be entitled to compensation even if you were partly at fault.
Personal injury damages can include reimbursement for past and future medical expenses, lost past and future earnings, pain and suffering and emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life ("hedonic damages"), and legal costs and attorneys fees.
