We may be able to negotiate a better settlement or take your car accident claim to court in Union City.
Our car accident lawyers will put your needs first in everything they do, working closely with you and your family to pursue your goals.

Common Causes of Union City Car Accidents
Human error is the main reason car accidents occur in Union City. Mistakes behind the wheel such as texting and driving, driving while distracted, drunk/drugged driving, speeding, and running red lights can lead to preventable collisions. When a driver violates the law or breaches a duty of care to other roadway users, that driver could be legally responsible for damages.
Some car accidents, however, stem from roadway defects. If a pothole, downed power line, debris in the road, unsafe construction zone or another hazard caused a crash, the government in charge of roadway maintenance could be liable. Another common scenario is a defective car part, such as bad brakes or a tire blowout, causing an accident. The part manufacturer could be liable in these cases.
Insurance Settlement vs. Personal Injury Lawsuit
New Jersey is a no-fault state, meaning you will only have the opportunity to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party outside of the insurance system if you have serious injuries. A serious injury under state law is one that causes a death, the loss of an unborn child, disfigurement, or temporary or permanent disability. If you are unsure whether your car accident injuries qualify, contact us for a free injury review.
A personal injury lawsuit may seem like more legal work than you want after an auto accident, but the results can be well worth the time and effort. A lawsuit could end in compensation not only for your medical expenses and vehicle repairs, but also for losses such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, anguish, trauma, lost quality of life, and loss of consortium. Your outcome could be greater than with an insurance claim. A lawsuit also holds the at-fault party responsible for your car accident, giving you a sense of justice and closure.
