Let Our North Bergen Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers Help You Secure Compensation for Your Injuries
Motor vehicle accidents are among the most common type of personal injury situations encountered in North Bergen and elsewhere in New Jersey. Given the high likelihood of a motor vehicle accident on roads and highways in North Bergen, and the possibility that car crash victims will suffer serious and potentially catastrophic injuries as a result, it is important that drivers be considerate of others on the road and exercise great care while operating a vehicle so as to avoid hazards, which may include dangerous drivers.
Unfortunately, some auto accidents cannot be avoided.

North Bergen Motor Vehicle Accident Litigation Can Be Complex
As with other personal injury claims, a successful motor vehicle accident claim in North Bergen, NJ requires that the defendant not only have violated the reasonable care standard, but also that the violation caused you to suffer injuries.
For example, the defendant may have been been speeding, but if you were actually injured due to having been rear-ended by another vehicle, then the defendant might avoid liability, as they have not contributed to your injuries (despite having operated their vehicle negligently). In that scenario, you would likely need to sue the driver of the vehicle that rear-ended you.
Motor vehicle accident litigation in North Bergen, NJ is anything but simple. There are many complex scenarios that can arise out of what may initially appear to be a basic injury claim.
For example, if you were injured in a multi-car pileup, then you will have to identify the liable parties and bring an action against each of them – unless one of the parties is more than 60 percent liable for your injuries, in which case New Jersey joint and several liability will give you the right to sue and recover your damages in full from that defendant.
When pursuing personal injury litigation in North Bergen, NJ, success often turns on an understanding of the various strategies that a defendant is likely to employ. By understanding the arguments likely to be put forth by the defense, you can predict and undermine those arguments and strengthen your own.
