Red Bank Car Accident Attorneys
Fighting for people injured in auto and truck crashes throughout Monmouth County, NJ
Although New Jersey is a very small state, it's extremely densely populated. And, Red Bank is a popular tourist destination for day trips, due to its lovely location along the Navesink River. With Route 35 running through town and our proximity to the Garden State Parkway, car and truck traffic can often become congested or even dangerous.
The more drivers on the road, the higher the chances of a car accident. And, during holiday weekends or summers, people are more likely to drive under the influence or while drowsy. All of this can add up to dangerous roads for everyone else. State statistics show nearly 18,000 passenger vehicle accidents in Monmouth County in 2017.
You may often see news reports about consumer car and truck driver safety technologies. You may even have some in your own vehicle. Auto manufacturers are developing more safety features all the time in their efforts to reduce car accident, injuries, and fatalities. However, accidents and crashes still happen, and typically happen because of someone else's negligence or recklessness.
If you were injured in an auto accident caused by another person or entity, the attorneys at Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP are here to help. We step in and advocate for your best interests – holding negligent parties accountable for your injuries, and fighting for the compensation you deserve. We are dedicated to standing up against insurance companies who attempt to prevent you from recovering your losses.
Red Bank car accident lawyers with a proven record of success
It only takes one negligent or reckless person to get behind the wheel and make a bad decision that can alter your life forever. Whether it appears to be a minor or serious, any accident may end up becoming medically or legally complex. There may be multiple vehicles, multiple injuries, or even multiple defendants in your claim. It could take weeks or months to recover from your accident, or you may suffer from permanent pain or disability. An experienced attorney can put together the right team to determine the extent of your injuries and hold the right people accountable.
With a multi-million-dollar record of success in verdicts and settlements, the Monmouth County lawyers at Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow work with a variety of car accident and injury 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
- Garden State Parkway and Turnpike accidents
High-speed accidents, like those on the Parkway or local highways, can result in devastating crashes and wrongful death. We work aggressively to ensure the responsible person or parties are held responsible and you receive the compensation to which you're entitled.
Car and truck accidents in NJ
When passenger cars are involved in an accident with a tractor-trailer, it's an unfortunate fact that the car will lose – due to the sheer size and weight of the truck. These types of accidents typically result in serious injury or death for the passengers of the automobile. Tractor-trailers are a common sight on Monmouth County roadways, and so are truck accidents.
Even though the trucking industry is heavily regulated across the country, it doesn't guarantee that every truck driver or company will always act within the law. Some companies may cut corners on required maintenance, or force drivers to cut sleep schedules in order to meet deadlines. There are many loopholes trucking companies may take advantage of or rules they may ignore completely in the name of profit.
Our attorneys are not afraid to stand up to big trucking companies when they cause injuries to others due to their own negligence or deliberate carelessness.
Can I collect damages after my car accident?
If you were injured in a car accident and it wasn't your fault, you're likely eligible for compensation under the law for your injuries and losses. There is no way to guess what your case is worth right off the bat, as all cases are unique, as are the situations that cause them. However, with a successful claim, you're likely to collect financial damages 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
We want you to be properly – and fairly – compensated for your losses and injuries. Your attorney will talk to you, your doctors, and all other relevant parties about your injury to determine all of your current and future medical needs for your claim.
How your Red Bank car accident attorney can help
Our attorneys work for you – not the insurance companies. Our goal is to protect your best interests and right to compensation. The goal of the insurance company is to prevent you from collecting the claim you're owed, by lowballing, devaluing, or flat out denying your claim.

Our legal team will launch their own investigation into your accident, including:
- Examining 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
