Edison Auto Accident Lawyers
Protecting people hurt in car and truck accidents in Middlesex County, New Jersey
New Jersey is known for its traffic – congested highways like the New Jersey Turnpike, the Garden State Parkway, Route 287, Route 18, Route 80, we could go on and on – and, unfortunately, with traffic comes accidents. Both auto and tractor-trailer accidents are on the rise throughout the state.
Recent statistics from Middlesex County show a great number of passenger vehicle accidents every year. The year 2017, for example, saw more than 27,000 crashes. As driver safety systems and technologies are being developed for both cars and trucks, the goal is fewer accidents, injuries, and fatalities. However, as the saying goes, accidents will happen.
And when an accident occurs with a car or truck that wasn't your fault, the Edison car accident attorneys at Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP will step up to protect your rights. We have years of experience with car and tractor-trailer accident cases, and know how to fight the insurance companies and negligent parties to secure you the compensation you're owed for your injuries. We're tough on your behalf.

Serious representation for victims of Edison car accidents
It only takes one careless or reckless driver to cause an accident and alter your life forever. Maybe you were driving to visit a local NJ friend, or traveling through New Jersey on your way to New York or Pennsylvania when you were in an accident with a car or truck.
Even what initially feels like a “simple” car accident can soon turn complex, especially when multiple cars and trucks are involved. When a person suffers injuries in a car accident or an accident with a tractor-trailer, he or she could take weeks or months to heal, or suffer permanent disability. It's crucial to hire an experienced personal injury attorney to ensure the negligent parties are held responsible.
The personal injury legal team at Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow work with clients, and have achieved successful verdicts, on a variety of auto accident cases, including:
- Tractor-trailer, truck, and 18-wheelers
- Auto defects, air bag, and seat belt failures
- Distracted and drowsy driving
- Drunk drivers
- Uninsured motorists
- Speeding and reckless driving
- Fatal car accidents
- Passenger injuries
- New Jersey Turnpike accidents
Any of the above can cause you serious or even catastrophic injuries. Our attorneys will fight hard for your rights and work to bring the responsible parties to justice. You deserve compensation for your injuries.
Accidents with tractor-trailers in New Jersey
Auto accidents with tractor-trailers or 18-wheelers can be devastating for the drivers and passengers of those cars. With all of the different highways crisscrossing New Jersey and the Edison area, trucks are plentiful in our area, and, unfortunately, truck accidents are all too common.
Trucks and tractor-trailers are heavily regulated, but that doesn't mean that every driver or trucking company follows the letter of the law – and innocent people suffer the consequences. Truckers may operate on too little sleep, drive while distracted, under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or operate trucks that haven't been properly maintained or repaired. All of this can contribute to serious accidents with tragic results.
Our truck accident attorneys can help if you or a loved one were injured in an accident.
What can I recover in my auto or truck accident claim?
Every accident is different, and everyone's situation is unique. However, if your accident was caused by a careless or negligent driver or entity, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and damages. Successful claims can recover the funds you need and deserve for:
- Current and future medical bills
- Long-term therapies or treatments
- Lost wages and pay
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Reduced quality of life
- Loss of enjoyment of life
There are many, many types and severity of injuries one can suffer in a vehicle crash, like permanent disability or scarring. Your personal injury attorney works with your medical team to determine the extent of your injuries, so all of your health concerns and issues are properly documented for your case.
How can your Edison car accident lawyer help?
It's important to remember that our attorneys don't work for the insurance companies. We work for you. After an accident, insurance companies will do their utmost to devalue or even deny your claim. Our years of experience give you an advantage, as we know the tricks these companies use to attempt to get accident victims to sign away their rights.
We'll launch our own investigation into your accident, including:
- Investigating the actions of the at-fault driver
- Collecting evidence from the accident scene
- Interviewing witnesses
- Reviewing accident and police reports
- Going over your insurance policy with you
- Meeting with accident reconstruction experts
- Analyzing any available photos or video footage
- Any other pertinent research
Our goal is simply to represent your best interests at all times. In New Jersey, you only have two years from the date of your injury to file a claim, so contact an attorney as soon as possible after your accident.
We offer a no-cost consultation, so we can find out the details of your accident and determine your options. Our winning reputation means we work with integrity and honesty, and we treat all our clients with respect.
