NJ Auto Accident Attorney
Auto Accidents Resulting in Personal Injury
Many people across New Jersey rely on motor vehicles to get from place to place on a daily basis. While cars and trucks provide much-needed transportation, these vehicles can also be involved in severe collisions that can cause devastating injuries. Such injuries can lead to extensive medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, as well as many other types of losses. In many situations, victims have the legal right to recover for their injury-related losses following an auto accident.
The specific injuries sustained by auto accident victims can vary significantly from case to case, ranging from relatively minor injuries that heal in a short period of time with minimal treatment to catastrophic injuries that result in permanent disability and require lifelong medical care. Some of the most common serious injuries from auto accidents can include the following:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Fractured bones
- Spinal cord injury
- Neck and back injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Internal hemorrhaging

Car Accidents in NJ
Car accidents can happen when you least expect them and can be extremely stressful events. Even a minor fender bender can cause painful injuries including whiplash or concussions and can cause you to incur medical expenses and lose income from missing work. More serious collisions, including head-on or rollover crashes, can cause permanent impairments, disfigurement, and disabilities and may lead to long-term hospitalization and may even keep you from living independently.
Many car accidents are caused by the negligence of others. When this occurs, the negligent party should be held liable for all of the losses of any injured victims. Our office can evaluate your situation and help determine whether negligence played a role in your accident so that you can seek the compensation you deserve. Some examples of negligence that often leads to collisions include:
- Violating traffic laws, including speeding or improper passing
- Violating traffic signals, including red lights and stop signs
- Dangerous road conditions due to lack of maintenance or inspection
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Aggressive driving
In some cases, negligence may be obvious following an accident. However, other accidents require significant investigation to identify any negligent parties. The Law Office of Kurt M. Resch has the resources needed to fully investigate the circumstances of your car accident to ensure that you fully recover for your losses.
Truck Accidents in NJ
Collisions involving large commercial trucks can cause particularly severe injuries due to the sheer size of these trucks compared to small passenger vehicles. Because of the risks of injury in truck accidents, commercial drivers are held to a higher standard for road safety in many situations. In addition to regular traffic laws, commercial truck drivers and trucking companies must also follow many regulations set out by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Because these regulations can be complex and because of the severity of most truck accident injuries, you should always have an attorney with specific experience in truck accident litigation handling your case.
Accident Involving a Pedestrian
Another type of traffic accident with a high risk of devastating injuries is an accident involving a pedestrian. When a motor vehicle hits someone who is walking, the pedestrian has almost no protection from the collision with the vehicle or any resulting collisions with the ground or other objects. Pedestrians often suffer extremely serious injuries and often have multiple injuries. Because your losses in a pedestrian accident may be extensive, you should consult with a highly skilled and committed pedestrian accident lawyer as soon as possible.
