Jersey City Intersection Accident Attorney

We proudly represent injured clients throughout New Jersey

In the United States, intersection accidents make up about 40% of the total car accidents in the country. Most of these accidents occur at intersections in major cities like Jersey City. From 2008 to 2012, more than 1,000 individuals were killed in New Jersey because of intersection accidents. This might not seem like a lot of people, but it is enough to raise concern.

Hire an Experienced Intersection Accident Attorney in Jersey City

An intersection is when you have two or more roads crossing into each other. Jersey City certainly has no shortage of major intersections with lots of traffic. Intersections can be a nightmare for drivers, especially when there are no traffic lights. But even if there are traffic lights, there are still going to be speeders and other drivers who break the traffic laws and cause accidents. This makes intersections dangerous not just for motorists, but also for pedestrians and cyclists as well.

Drivers are always advised to observe the yield signs, stop signs, and traffic lights. However, you have no control over what other drivers do. You could be the perfect driver and still come across someone else who is driving recklessly. Because of this behavior, you or someone you love could become seriously injured or killed.

Here are all the common reasons that intersection accidents occur:

  • The driver speeds through the traffic light or the stop sign.
  • The driver does not stop completely.
  • The driver does not yield to pedestrians, cyclists, or motorists.
  • Drunk driving at the wheel. This reduces the driver’s judgment and reaction timing.
  • The driver is distracted by their mobile phone or other electronic devices.
  • The driver is tired and falls asleep.
  • A vehicle with bad tires or brakes.

If the driver that is found to be at fault will be criminally charged in most cases. Their victim will be entitled to compensation from both their insurance provider and through legal action. The insurance company does not actually take legal action against a driver. They will only pay the medical bills of the victim if their plan covers it. For this reason, a Jersey City intersection accident attorney like us would have to be hired. We always fight for our injured clients to get them the compensation they deserve. If you have been injured in an intersection accident, give us a call at 201-798-8000. Give us a chance to fight for your rights.

Injuries from Intersection Accidents

When there is an intersection accident, one of two scenarios is likely to occur. Either one car has collided with the side of another car or two cars have crashed head-on into each other. Both cases would result in serious accidents, especially if the driver at fault was speeding. The injuries sustained from such an accident will be quite severe.

Below is a list of the bodily areas that often get injured from intersection accidents:

  • Spinal cord
  • Neck
  • Brain
  • Head
  • Bones

What a victim may not notice right away are the internal injuries. Aside from the bruises, cuts, broken bones, and so forth, there could be damage to other tissues and organs that won’t be noticeable for weeks. There is also the psychological trauma that has been experienced as well. If a driver is proven to be at fault, they will owe the victim a lot of compensation for the pain and suffering inflicted upon them.

Side Collisions at Intersections

Side collisions are quite common at intersections. These are often called T-bone accidents because the intersecting roads form a “t” shape. If one vehicle drives into another vehicle that is on the opposite intersecting road, they are going to drive into the side of that vehicle. The driver at fault will usually be intoxicated or distracted and go through the stop light or stop line. Since they don’t slow down, they will likely hit the other car at very fast speeds. If they hit the driver’s side of the vehicle, then it will seriously injure the driver. If it is on the passenger side with nobody sitting there, then the driver may suffer less severe injuries. However, the injuries will still be serious enough to need medical attention.

As a result of the accident, the victim could suffer from:

  • Broken bones
  • Loss of hearing
  • Fractured ribs
  • Dislocated shoulders
  • Sternum damage

In addition to calling your insurance company, make sure you call the police if they haven’t already talked to you. Chances are that a police report already exists because intersection accidents will often get the attention of law enforcement right away. Since these accidents tend to hold up traffic on both roads, you can expect multiple police offers to be at the scene of the accident in a matter of minutes. They will be followed by an ambulance to take you to the hospital and get your injuries treated.

Which Type of Victim Are You?

Are you a motorist, motorcyclist, bicyclist, or pedestrian who was injured at an intersection? No matter what the circumstances were, your injury will entitle you to financial compensation for your medical bills, pain, and suffering. If you were riding a bicycle or merely walking on the street and a car hit you at an intersection, you are immediately deemed the victim. Drivers have an obligation to never hit anyone on foot or bicycle under any circumstances. It doesn’t even matter if you were jaywalking across the street and a car hits you. The driver in the car is supposed to always watch where they are going. If they don’t and end up hitting you, then you can seek compensation in court from that driver.

Alright! These guys are amazing. I was devastated when I got a three tickets in New Jersey with 12 points in total and fines adding up over $1K. The officer was truly rude, unfair and just took out his bad day on me. At this point I had no idea what to do but I must find some legal help to fight this in court. After getting the tickets, I called a bunch of different law groups trying to see who can help me with this. I was able to talk to many of them and mostly all of them seemed like they wanted to see how much they can get out of me before even hearing out what my concerns where. Then I got around to calling Bhatt Law Group and I was welcome by this lady (whose name I don't know) and she was amazing. She listened and helped me be calm and gave me assurance I am in good hands. She offer pricing and it seemed very reasonable too. I made my payment and then I didn't have anything to worry about till the day of the virtual court. They figured out all my court dates and managed everything on the back end. They would give me updates on what the process is up to. Funny story, on the day of my virtual court session I overslept thinking my court time was at 11 am instead of 9 am and I had my attorney Devin Baer even giving me a call to get me out of bed to attend the zoom. I don't know how many attorneys would do that for their client. Devin was very helpful, professional and understanding. He gave me a call prior to my court session and gave important pointers and even through out the court session he made me feel confident and assure that everything will be okay. So these guys were friendly, helpful and professional but where there any results? OH YEAH! I was able to lower my fines and points to barely nothing. These guys are life savers and will help you legally in any situation where you have been treated unfairly. Thank you Bhatt Law.
