Thanks to persistent efforts by lawmakers, police, safety groups and other advocates such as personal injury lawyers, the number of serious and deadly traffic crashes on New Jersey’s roadways over the years has been declining.
In 2001, 670 people were killed and nearly 81,000 were injured in New Jersey motor vehicle accidents, according to the New Jersey Department of Transportation. Preliminary reports from 2014 place the tally at 518 killed and fewer than 55,000 injured that year.
While that decline is positive news, the fact remains that thousands are injured and hundreds are killed on our roads every single year. We have to do better.
Getting proper medical attention is the most important concern after a motor vehicle accident, but you cannot afford to let it be your only concern. Injury victims have legal rights and must take steps to protect them if they are to obtain full and fair compensation for economic losses, pain and suffering.
