Car Accident Lawyer Serving New Jersey & New York
Auto accidents can be a minor inconvenience or a major hassle, but when they cause serious personal injury or worse, you need a serious attorney with a record of results on your side and fighting to see that you are fully compensated for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering and other legal damages. In New Jersey, the Law Offices of Andrew R. Jacobs is here to provide you with the representation you need to get the compensation you deserve.
Compensation for Serious Car Accidents in New Jersey
If you are injured in a car accident, your Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance should cover your medical expenses, but in order to recover compensation for pain and suffering damages, you must be able to prove that you received a serious or permanent injury under New Jersey law. Proving this fact requires a thorough understanding of the medical and legal issues involved in your particular case, and the ability to stand up to the team of insurance company defense lawyers on the other side, claiming that the accident was your fault or that you were not really seriously injured. You need an attorney who is knowledgeable and experienced in auto accident cases and who won’t be intimidated by insurance company litigation tactics.
Whether your car accident involves multiple drivers, drunk drivers who were overserved at a bar or restaurant, a road defect or a defective automobile component that caused the accident, we take the time to conduct a complete investigation and work to hold all responsible parties accountable for the harm they have caused.
Tractor-Trailer Semi-Truck Accidents
An enormous amount of commercial truck traffic travels through the state at all hours of the day and night, from the I-80 to the I-287 to the New Jersey Turnpike, and all the roads in between. Unfortunately, the immense size and weight of these big rigs make them very dangerous in traffic situations. 18-wheelers, with multiple blind spots surrounding the cab and trailer, need extra time and space to stop or react to an emergency, and their maneuverability is extremely limited. In the event of a truck crash, the occupants of the smaller, lighter vehicle are at risk for serious personal injury or wrongful death.
Despite these dangers, trucking companies put truckers under tremendous pressure to deliver their cargo as quickly as possible. This leads to drivers behind the wheel without a break for longer than federal trucking safety regulations allow. Driver fatigue leads to distraction and even falling asleep at the wheel, with disastrous results. We investigate whether truckers and trucking companies were in compliance with safety regulations and hold them accountable when their negligence has caused a needless tragedy.
Motorcycle Accidents Cause Serious Personal Injury and Wrongful Death
Motorcycle accident victims generally fare even worse than victims of truck accidents. In fact, a motorcycle rider is 35 times more likely to die in a collision than a driver or occupant of a passenger vehicle. Riders run the risk of being crashed into or forced off the road by a negligent or distracted driver, or even worse by a reckless or aggressive driver who does not believe in sharing the road with motorcycles as required by law. Worse still, motorcyclists who get in to court must face the bias of many people who assume the biker is the one who must have been riding recklessly or aggressively. We fight to make sure the facts are brought out in the proper light and that you are fully compensated for your injuries.
