The I-295, I-76, and Route 42 interchange has been one of New Jersey’s most congested roadways and has had a high rate of crashes. The State of New Jersey is reconfiguring the roads to allow I-295 traffic to flow continuously to eliminate ramps and congestion. Construction is expected to be complete in 2027.
Car accidents happen every day and night, and both drivers and passengers can be injured or killed due to another driver’s negligence. If you are in injured in a car accident, there is an answer.

Motorcycle drivers and passengers are particularly likely to be injured when involved in an accident. Many drivers do not properly observe motorcycles and can drive right into them. Cars and trucks must be on the lookout for motorcycles and share the road.
Tractor trailers and commercial trucks can cause devastating and severe injuries in accidents. The sheer size of trucks and the velocity they travel due to their weight or cargo cause catastrophic impacts with other vehicles. People involved in accidents with trucks must be compensated for their permanent injuries.
Pedestrian accidents in New Jersey are all too common. Pedestrians have the right of way and vehicles must yield to pedestrians in the crosswalk. Drivers who do not stop for pedestrians can be ticketed. Drivers who hit pedestrians with their vehicle can cause serious injuries to pedestrians. Pedestrians who are injured after being hit by a car can be compensated for their pain, suffering and damages.
Owners of property are responsible for your injuries if you slip and fall, and their property is unsafe or in a dangerous condition. If someone visits another person or businesses property and becomes injured, the property owner may be responsible for the injuries and damages.
In New Jersey, there is no “one-bite free” law. If any dog bites you, the owner is strictly liable for your damages and injuries, no matter the size or breed of the dog. As long as you are lawfully at the property or at a public place, and you did not provoke the dog, the owner is fully responsible for any injuries you may have suffered.
Wrongful death claims in New Jersey allow compensation for the family and loved ones when someone’s death was caused by the neglect, act or defect of another person. The wrongful death claim is brought by the estate of the decedent, who is the victim in the matter.
