Toms River Car Accident Lawyers
Fighting for people injured in auto and truck wrecks throughout Ocean County, NJ
New Jersey is known for many things – farm-fresh vegetables, the shore, and certainly our traffic. Even though our state is small, it’s a thoroughfare for many vehicles traveling up and down the Eastern seaboard, utilizing roads and highways like the Garden State Parkway, U.S. Route 9, Route 35, Route 37, Route 70, Route 166, County Route 527, County Route 530, County Route 549, and County Route 571.
It’s not uncommon for these roads to become congested, increasing the chances of a car accident. Current statistics show that both auto and truck accidents are still a problem here in the Garden State. In 2017, there were nearly 14,000 passenger vehicle crashes in Ocean County. Auto manufacturers are continually working on new and improved safety technologies for both car and driver, in an effort to reduce car accidents and the resulting injuries and fatalities.
However, accidents still occur, sometimes due to another’s negligence or carelessness. If you’re injured, or a loved one is killed, in an accident with a car or truck, talk to the accident attorneys at Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP. Our job is to step in and find out who is responsible for your injuries and hold them accountable. We take a stand against insurance companies and corporations who want to prevent you from securing the compensation you deserve.
Toms River auto accident attorneys protect your rights
One careless decision by a negligent driver can cause a devastating accident, and if you are unlucky enough to cross paths with that person, your life may be negatively impacted forever. Even accidents that might appear to be a simple fender-bender may turn out to be legally and medically complicated, particularly in crashes with multiple vehicles. Injuries can take weeks or months to completely heal, or you may suffer permanent disability. Only an experienced, skilled lawyer can help ensure the right parties are held accountable.
The Ocean County attorneys at Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow have a history of success with millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts in auto 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 accidents
These types of accidents can result in catastrophic injuries or wrongful death actions. Our legal team will work aggressively on your behalf to hold the right parties accountable and help you achieve the compensation you need.
A word about tractor-trailer and car accidents in NJ
When a car has an accident with a tractor-trailer or 18-wheeler, the outcome is usually catastrophic for the occupants of the passenger vehicle, just due to the sheer size difference alone. And with the number of highways and roadways in the Toms River area, tractor-trailers are a common sight – and unfortunately, so are truck accidents.
The trucking industry is heavily regulated under both state and federal law. However, that doesn’t mean that every driver, mechanic, or company follows all of the rules all of the time. Often, when someone cuts corners, it ends in tragedy for others. Truckers may be pressured to drive on too little sleep in order to meet deadlines, or operate tractor-trailers that haven’t been properly maintained by the company. Both human and mechanical error can contribute to serious and fatal accidents.
Our attorneys will take on big trucking companies on your behalf when you’re injured due to their negligence.
What damages can I collect after a car accident?
When you’re in a Toms River auto accident that wasn’t your fault, you’re likely eligible for compensation for your damages and losses. All car crashes and accidents are unique, as are the situations under which they occur. However, successful claims can likely collect financial compensation 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
Your personal injury attorney will interview you and your doctors to determine the extent of your injuries, and properly document all of your current and future health needs for your case. It’s crucial you are properly compensated for your medical bills for the duration of your recovery or, in the case of permanent disability, for the rest of your life.
Your New Jersey car accident lawyer can help
Our attorneys do not work for the insurance companies. We are on your side, and our goal is to protect your best interests. After an accident, the insurance company’s goal is to devalue, lowball, or deny your claim. However, our years of experience going up against these companies and winning gives you the advantage. We’re familiar with the tricks they attempt to use against accident victims to try to have them sign away their rights to compensation.
Instead, we perform our own research, 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
In New Jersey, you have only two years from the date of your injury to file a claim. To protect your rights, contact an attorney as soon as possible after your auto accident. We offer a free consultation, so you can explain the details of your accident and injuries. Our reputation of professionalism and integrity means we are passionate about our clients and cases.
