Our client was a passenger in a vehicle traveling to his Camden, New Jersey, home when the unthinkable happened. His friend, the driver, had stopped at a red traffic light at North 3rd Street and Market Street when a nearby tractor-trailer truck made a wide left-hand turn and struck the vehicle. The force of the impact dragged the vehicle our client was riding in off of the
A trip to a Deptford shopping center turned disastrous when a young teacher found herself directly in the path of an out-of-control truck.
The traffic light turned green. Our client made a legal – and careful – left turn out of a shopping complex and onto Clements Bridge Road. At the same time, the driver of a commercial pickup truck traveling straight on Clements Bridge
When a careless driver struck a car carrying a mother and her three-year-old son, so did tragedy. Our clients were traveling straight through the Monroe Township intersection of Route 322 – the Black Horse Pike – and Malaga Road when another driver deliberately sped up to “beat the light.” This motorist turned left without having the right of way, directly into the path of our clients. The
A rear-end collision happens with little warning. A driver may only see a flash of headlights in his rearview mirror before the vicious impact shoves his body forward‚ pushes his own vehicle into traffic. The force involved in such a wreck wreaks havoc on the human body‚ potentially damaging the spine‚ breaking bones and tearing muscle tissue. Our client experienced just how pervasive rear-end car accident injuries

In the early morning hours of a late December day, the usual work routine became anything but usual for our client. The Keasbey, New Jersey, truck driver started the day at the dispatch office in nearby Readington, inspected the truck for safety, and then drove his assigned route, delivering milk to grocery stores throughout Bergen County. Our client arrived at the ShopRite store in Emerson, where he

Our client, a 65-year-old retiree, drove to Carousel Station Condominiums in Philadelphia to meet a friend one morning. He pulled into the parking lot and stopped his car. He had only taken a step or two toward his friend’s condo when he encountered a patch of black ice. He slipped on this unseen safety hazard and landed hard enough on his right elbow to shatter his upper
If you’re like most people, you probably assume that even the greediest insurance company would rather pay out a small personal injury claim than spend tens of thousands of dollars – literally three times as much as the corporation would have to pay, in some cases – to litigate it. It seems like common sense to us, but in the insurance industry, this sort of logic is
Rolling through a stop sign isn’t the same as coming to a full and complete stop to look for oncoming traffic. Disobeying a traffic signal‚ whether it’s running a red light or failing to yield‚ potentially places every other driver on the road in harm’s way. For our client‚ a motorist showing that type of disregard for the rules of the road changed her life forever. The

Injuries from a slip-and-fall accident take an enormous toll on the human body. The forces exerted on muscle and bone during a sudden impact can cause tears throughout the affected tissue, which may then cause problems in other areas. For example, a back injury from a fall may lead to nerve damage, which can cause burning sensations or tingle in the hands and feet. The loss of
Everything changed one June evening when our client crossed paths with a careless driver during her usual commute from work to her home in Malvern, Pennsylvania. She was stopped on Lancaster Avenue in East Whiteland, sitting in the kind of rush hour traffic typical in Chester County, when the car behind her struck her vehicle without warning. The impact was so great that it pushed our client’s
Near the end of an hour-long trip from Absecon, New Jersey, to Chester, Pennsylvania, an auto accident changed our client’s life forever. She was the passenger in the car her husband was driving on Edgmont Avenue, near the 14th Street intersection. Suddenly, another vehicle ran the stop sign on 14th street and collided with the couple’s car.
An ambulance rushed our client to nearby Crozer
Our client, a paramedic by profession, was driving through Warren County, New Jersey when an unexpected encounter on the highway changed his life forever. He was driving along Interstate I-80 near Knowlton when a motorcoach abruptly entered his lane of travel. The bus hit our client from behind and pushed his car into a guardrail and concrete barrier. Not only did the driver of the bus act
When our client suffered life-changing neck and back injuries in a rear-end accident, she faced an uphill battle getting the compensation she deserved. The at-fault driver’s insurance company, New Jersey Manufacturers (NJM), is known for being a difficult insurer to settle these types of cases voluntarily. Our client’s case was subject to New Jersey’s verbal threshold, meaning that she would have to prove she had sustained serious
Some drivers behave so carelessly behind the wheel that it’s easy to see an accident coming – but avoiding an aggressive driver determined to speed, tailgate, and pass you in inclement weather can be anything but easy. That’s what happened one early February morning, as our client drove northbound on the New Jersey Turnpike to get from his home in Monroe Township to his job in Elizabeth.
His Camden County case demonstrates just how important it is that accident victims choose experienced lawyers to handle their claims. Our client, who worked for NAPA Auto Parts, was on the clock and in a car owned by his employer at the time of the accident. He was driving on the White Horse Pike in Berlin, New Jersey when he stopped at a traffic light that had
