Speeding is something that every driver has done at one time or another. Drivers who are in a hurry often feel compelled to drive faster than the speed limit and pass other people on the road. There are also drivers who make a habit of going faster than the speed limit simply because they think the speed limit is too slow. What these people don’t realize is that they are putting other people’s lives at risk, including their own.

Local government officials set various speed limits in place for a reason. They are a safety precaution for each road and street that you drive on. People who violate the speed limit by driving faster than it will be increasing their risk of causing an accident. Even if the accident doesn’t kill anybody, it could still cause a permanent injury to one or more victims involved. The sad thing is that speeding drivers are not always intoxicated or distracted either. They elect to drive faster than the speed limit due to their ignorance of the law.

Speeding-related accidents are one of the primary types of car accidents to occur in the entire country. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, approximately 27% of all the vehicle accidents in the United States were related to speeding each year. This comes out to over 8,000 deaths caused by speeding. Meanwhile, the number of injuries from speeding-related accidents is significantly higher.

If you have found yourself involved in a speeding-related accident and have suffered any kind of injury, you need to contact one of our Jersey City speeding-related accident attorneys immediately. They will review your accident case and decide what the best course of legal action is to take on your behalf.

New Jersey Laws Against Speeding and Aggressive Driving

Whenever there is a car accident in New Jersey, the court considers the speed at which each vehicle was traveling prior to the accident. This is an easy way to address blame because if one car was driving over the speed limit, they will take at least some blame over the accident. Sometimes it will be 100% of the blame while other times, it may be a smaller percentage of blame. It all depends on the circumstances of the accident and whether the drivers were intoxicated, distracted on their phones, and so on.

In some cases, a speeding driver could also be accused of aggressive driving. If they were speeding while changing lanes frequently, tailgating other vehicles, or failing to signal when they turn, they would be at much greater fault if an accident were to occur. For the victim, this would mean a greater amount of compensation from both the driver and their insurance company for any injuries received from the accident.

If road rage were the result of speeding, New Jersey has recently passed a law called “Jessica’s Law” which imposes more severe penalties on drivers found guilty of this. Not only could the face a $15,000 fine and up to 5 years in prison, they will also be more liable in a civil lawsuit against them as well. The victim could go after them for both compensatory and punitive damages.

Contact Your Insurance Provider First

New Jersey regulates insurance companies under a “no-fault” system. This is a system which requires the victims of car accidents to request insurance payments for their medical expenses first. In other words, you cannot just file a lawsuit against the other driver on the very next day after the accident. You need to file a claim with your insurance company and receive the maximum amount of coverage under your Personal Injury Protection plan. Whether you chose a standard policy and basic policy, your personal injury protection will cover a minimum of $15,000 per individual and a maximum of $250,000. Sometimes the maximum coverage can be more, depending on the provider and the extent of your injuries.

After your insurance company has paid into this claim, you may still have medical expenses left to pay. This is especially true if you have a permanent disability or long physical rehabilitation process to go through as a result of the speeding-related accident. If this is what you’re dealing with, then you have the right to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. You can go after them for both compensatory and punitive damages.

The Services of Our Jersey City Speeding-Related Accident Attorney

If you have been injured in a speeding-related car accident caused by another driver, let one of our Jersey City speeding-related accident attorneys assist you. Our firm is committed to helping personal injury victims like yourself receive the proper compensation that is owed to them under the law. When we take on your case, we do more than merely represent you in court. We will conduct a full investigation into the accident so that we can build our case against the defendant.

Here is just a sample of what we will do for you as our client:

  • Assist you in filing a claim with your insurance company.
  • Assist in filing the lawsuit against the other driver.
  • Negotiate with the insurance adjuster.
  • Review all the available evidence. This means examining video surveillance footage, engine control unit information, skid marks on the road, witness accounts, blood alcohol level of the driver, driving history of the driver, cell phone records, and more.
  • Medical report information.
  • Based on our findings, we will either help you negotiate a settlement with the other driver or we will take them to court and fight for the maximum amount of compensation possible on your behalf.

In New Jersey, the law states that you must file your lawsuit within 2 years from the date of the accident. The sooner you take legal action against the driver that caused your injuries, the faster you can be compensated. To get started, give us a call at 201-798-8000.

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.
