Many motor vehicle accidents occur on the busy highways of New Jersey. In 2017, the New Jersey Department of Transportation reports that there were 16,764 crashes on interstate highways in New Jersey. One of the biggest difficulties in highway accident claims is determining fault for the accident, which can require extensive investigation of the circumstances of the accident, especially when multiple vehicles were involved. Having an experienced New Jersey highway accident lawyer represent you can be critical to obtaining the best possible outcome for your case.

If you or a loved one were injured in a New Jersey highway accident, you need an attorney who will stand at your side.

On busy, fast highways, many factors can go into causing an accident. A skilled highway accident attorney is critical to establishing which driver or drivers are at fault for the accident. Highway accidents can be caused by a number of factors, including:
The New Jersey highway accident attorneys of Andres & Berger, P.C. will investigate your accident to determine who was at fault.
New Jersey law uses a comparative fault scheme for motor vehicle accident claims. Under comparative fault, an injured party can still recover compensation for their damages and injuries even if he or she is partially at fault for the accident (but less than majority at-fault for the accident). The comparative fault system assigns a percentage of fault, if any, to each driver in an accident. An injured party’s right to recover compensation is reduced by the percentage of fault, if any, assigned to that party.
Due to the comparative fault system in New Jersey, it is important to have the skill and experience of a New Jersey highway accident attorney on your side. The Haddonfield attorneys of Andres & Berger, P.C. are ready to undertake a complete investigation of your accident to determine the potential causes and the parties at fault. A thorough investigation will produce the evidence necessary for an injured party to recover compensation, even partial compensation, for his or her recovery from their injuries. Our attorneys work with the best consultants to build your claim, including engineers and accident reconstructionists to understand what exactly happened in your highway accident. Board-certified surgeons, orthopedic physicians and other medical specialists will help us fully understand your injuries and evaluate what impact, any permanent injuries caused or exacerbated by the collision, will have on you and your family both now and in the future. Medical expenses, lost wages, and any services you will no longer be able to provide for yourself and/or your family will be analyzed to determine your economic loss because of the accident.
Our attorneys will be by your side through every step of the process in pursuing your claim.

FAQ: How does the involvement of multiple vehicles in my highway accident affect my case?
When multiple vehicles are involved in a highway accident, it can be difficult to determine who is at fault for the accident and the specific allocations of fault among multiple responsible parties. In some cases, multiple parties who are at fault for a highway accident may agree to a specific allocation of fault in a settlement agreement, or allocation may be determined by a jury at trial. In any event, having multiple vehicles in a highway accident means that multiple insurance policies are at play, which can make it more likely that you recover greater compensation for your injuries. But having multiple vehicles and insurance policies in effect can also make negotiations more difficult. That is why it is important to have an experienced highway accident attorney on your side to represent your interests.
FAQ: If the other driver or drivers in my highway accident don’t have insurance or have very little insurance, will I still be able to recover compensation for my injuries?
If the other drivers at fault in your highway accident lack auto insurance or enough coverage, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical expenses from your own auto insurance policy’s personal injury protection coverage. You may also be entitled to recover compensation from your insurance policy’s uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage. Finally, in rare situations you can file a legal claim against the at-fault driver to recover compensation from the driver himself or herself.
