What types of car accidents do your Camden County attorneys handle?

Our Camden County car accident attorneys handle every type of car accident including:

  • Head-on crashes. These accidents may occur because a driver is drunk, the directional signs were unclear, improper passing, or other causes. Head-on crashes often cause deaths and catastrophic injuries.
  • Broadside accidents. These car accidents, also called T-bone crashes, involve the front of one car striking the side of another car. Common causes include driving through a stop sign or red light at an intersection.
  • Rear-end collisions. The driver in the rear is almost always responsible. Common causes include speeding, tailgating, and driver distraction.
  • Single-vehicle accidents. We normally represent the passenger(s) who file a claim against the driver for speeding, driver fatigue, or other causes. We can represent the driver if the accident is due to defective car products, faulty road design by the NJ Department of Transportation or Camden County, or because of violations of the New Jersey Dram Shop Act.
  • Multiple-vehicle crashes. Our Camden County car accident lawyers represent victims when a chain reaction or a series of crashes causes multiple collisions. A common example is when a rear-end collision causes subsequent rear-end collisions in a line of cars.
  • Intersection accidents. Accidents at intersections include turning vehicles, driver confusion, and failure to obey stop signs and traffic signals.
  • Uber and Lyft accidents. Ferrara & Gable understands the unique challenges involved when rideshare drivers cause accidents, including which insurance is available to pay your claim.
  • Hit-and-run accidents. Our personal injury lawyers file claims against the hit-and-run driver if that driver can be located. Otherwise, we file claims with your own uninsured/underinsured (UM/UIM) carrier.
  • Fatal accidents. Our car accident lawyers in Camden file claims on behalf of mothers, fathers, spouses, daughters, sons, and other eligible family members against the driver and any other responsible parties. We’re skilled at proving liability even though your loved one died.

We work with investigators, the police, traffic reconstruction experts, car product experts, and others to help show how your accident happened.

What types of injuries do car accidents cause?

Ferrara & Gable works with your doctors and our network of doctors no matter what type of injury you have. We handle all types of catastrophic, permanent, and serious injuries including:

  • Traumatic brain injuries. These injuries cause harsh physical symptoms, loss of cognitive abilities, loss of bodily functions, and daily emotional suffering.
  • Spinal cord damage. Spinal cord damage can include paralysis, herniated discs, loss of sensation, and other problems. Victims often need a lifetime of medical care and live with excruciating pain.
  • Fractures. Car accidents often break collarbones, shoulders, arms, wrists, and hands. Injuries to the lower part of the body can also occur. Most broken repairs require orthopedic care. Many broken bones require surgery. We handle all types of fractures.
  • Traumatic amputation/loss of limb. These injuries may occur when the body strikes the metal in the car or when a body part is run over, such as may occur when a car driver collides with a bicycle rider or a pedestrian.
  • Internal organ damage and bleeding. Car occupants and others can suffer crush injuries or lacerations to their lungs, kidneys, and other organs. Organ damage can be fatal.
  • Whiplash. This type of injury is common in a rear-collision accident. The injury occurs when the neck and head rapidly move back and forth. Victims with whiplash often take a long time to heal and need extensive physical therapy and other treatments.
  • All other types of serious physical. These injuries include back pain, shoulder and neck pain, nerve damage, soft tissue injuries, and muscle damage

Car accidents cause more than physical injuries. Many victims struggle emotionally when they have observable injuries like scarring or disfigurement. Emotional suffering can include anxiety, grief, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Car accident victims should always seek immediate medical attention – whether they have symptoms or not.

Why do car accidents happen?

  • Driving too closely
  • Failing to pass or merge properly
  • Failing to yield
  • Driving through red lights and stop signs
  • Driver inexperience
  • Any New Jersey moving traffic violation
  • Defective auto parts
  • Many other causes

Who is responsible for my Camden County car accident?

At Ferrara & Gable, we file claims against every responsible defendant including:

  • The driver of another vehicle
  • The driver of the vehicle in which you are a passenger
  • The owner of the vehicle if different than the driver, such as when parents allow their children to use their car
  • An employer
  • A seller of alcohol to someone who was visibly intoxicated and then caused an accident due to  intoxication
  • The manufacturers of defective auto parts
  • The New Jersey Department of Transportation or other government agencies/entities who were responsible for the design or maintenance of the road where your accident happened

How much is my Camden County car accident case worth?

Our Camden County car accident lawyers demand compensation for all your current and future personal and financial damages including your:

  • Medical expenses. These bills include your emergency care, burn center care if needed, surgeries, hospital stays, doctor visits, physical therapy and other types of therapy, emotional counseling, medications, and assistive devices.
  • Pain and suffering. This amount includes compensation for every way you hurt, physically and emotionally, every day of your life due to your injuries.
  • Lost income and lost benefits. This amount includes your work losses to date and for as long as you can’t work.
  • Other damages including:
    • Loss of bodily function
    • Loss of enjoyment of life’s pleasures
    • Scarring and disfigurement
    • Loss of consortium (enjoyment of marital pleasures)

In some cases, like when a drunk driver caused your accident, you may seek punitive damages.

We also seek wrongful death and survivorship damages if a loved one dies. These damages include the funeral and burial costs, the loss of financial support, and the loss of guidance and love your loved one would have provided each family member.

You can only have one settlement or one verdict – so it’s important to work with lawyers like our Camden County personal injury lawyers who understand all the damages you deserve, and how to document and verify each item of damage.
