Experienced New Jersey Motor Vehicle, Truck, & Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Under the motor vehicle accident law in New Jersey, drivers must obey traffic safety rules and exercise reasonable caution so as not to cause harm to themselves or others when they are behind the wheel. But the reality is that many drivers take unnecessary risks and put other drivers at risk.

Common careless driving behaviors include:

  • Speeding.
  • Texting while driving.
  • Talking on cell phones while driving.
  • Ignoring traffic signs and traffic lights.
  • Talking to other passengers.
  • Aggressive driving.
  • Driving too slowly.

One, or any combination, of these behaviors can lead to life-threatening injuries including catastrophic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and in extreme cases, death. An experienced New Jersey auto accident lawyer knows how to examine a number of factors that implicate the cause of a motor vehicle collision, and name all of the proper defendants.

Time Limits for Car Accident Suits in New Jersey

New Jersey law places time limits on people wishing to pursue lawsuits related to motor vehicle accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents. The general rule is that the suit must be filed within two years of the collision. But New Jersey law contains a few shorter deadlines for filing auto accident claims. If the accident involved the State of New Jersey or another, similar government body, then the victim may only have 90 days to make the government aware that a lawsuit may be filed.

Additionally, victims of certain types of accidents, usually involving hit-and-run or uninsured drivers, may qualify for compensation by the New Jersey Unsatisfied Claim and Judgment Fund, which has a 180 day time limit to file a claim. Do not wait. Call an attorney who will act to preserve your rights.
