New Jersey Intersection Accident Injury Attorneys & Auto Accident Lawyers
Representing Clients in Toms River, Edison, Brick and Freehold
When a motor vehicle accident occurs at an intersection, it’s not unusual for both sides to claim that they had the green light. To prove your case, it’s important to contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible so that evidence of liability can be collected and preserved.
At the law firm of Lombardi and Lombardi, P.A., we have two full-time investigators on our staff who focus on investigating accidents. They will get copies of the police report, interview relevant witnesses and reconstruct the accident scene. All of these things need to be done as soon as possible to preserve evidence before it is destroyed or memories fade.
We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. Our lawyers have obtained more than $400 million for our clients with personal injury claims, and once we take on a case, we work vigorously to maximize the compensation. Our lawyers have been helping auto accident victims and their families in Middlesex County and throughout New Jersey for the past 35 years.
Comparative Liability and Intersection Accidents
New Jersey is a comparative liability state. While you can collect damages from your no-fault insurance regardless of fault, you cannot file a personal injury lawsuit against the other driver unless he or she is more than 50 percent at fault.
It’s important not to discuss liability with the insurance adjuster of the other driver, as anything can be used against you to reduce the value of your claim. For example, if you admit that you were driving over the speed limit or did not look both ways, a percentage of fault can be assigned to you, even if the other driver ran a red light. Your financial recovery will be reduced by any percentage of liability that is assigned to you.
