What kinds of car accidents do your Cherry Hill attorneys handle?

Our experienced Cherry Hill car accident attorneys handle a wide range of car accident cases, providing legal representation and advocacy for victims involved in various types of accidents. We handle all manner of car accidents, including:

  • Rear-end collisions. These accidents often occur when a vehicle strikes the one in front of it. They can result from distracted driving, tailgating, or sudden stops.
  • T-bone (side-impact) collisions. Side-impact accidents, often referred to as T-bone accidents, happen when one vehicle strikes another on its side. These can occur at intersections or in situations where one driver fails to yield the right of way.
  • Head-on collisions. These are among the most severe car accidents and involve the front of one vehicle colliding with the front of another. They may result from various factors, including impaired driving, speeding, or dangerous passing.
  • Single-vehicle accidents. Even when no other vehicles are involved, individuals can sustain injuries in single-vehicle accidents due to factors like defective road conditions, obstacles, or rollovers.
  • Multi-vehicle pileups. These accidents occur when multiple vehicles are involved in a chain reaction collision, often on highways or in adverse weather conditions.
  • Intersection accidents. Accidents at intersections are common and can involve various scenarios, such as running red lights or stop signs, failure to yield, or driver confusion.
  • Speeding accidents. High-speed accidents on highways can result in serious injuries. Our attorneys handle cases involving negligent speeding and other highway-related accidents.
  • Distracted driving accidents. Accidents caused by drivers distracted by cell phones, texting, or other distractions are a significant concern. We help victims pursue claims against distracted drivers.
  • Drunk driving accidents. Accidents involving impaired drivers often result in severe injuries or fatalities. Our attorneys advocate for the rights of victims injured by drunk drivers.
  • Hit-and-run accidents. Hit-and-run accidents can leave victims with unanswered questions. Our legal team works to identify and hold responsible parties accountable.
  • Uninsured/underinsured motorist claims. When accidents involve drivers without adequate insurance coverage, we assist victims in pursuing claims through their own uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.

What types of injuries commonly occur from Cherry Hill car accidents?

Car accidents can cause a wide variety of injuries, ranging from minor to severe. Some of the most common types of injuries that occur in car accidents include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries. Concussions and other brain injuries can range from mild to severe, and they can cause a variety of symptoms, including headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, confusion, and memory loss.
  • Broken bones. Broken bones are another common injury in car accidents. Broken bones can occur in any part of the body, but they are most common in the arms, legs, and ribs. Broken bones can be painful and disabling, and they may require surgery to repair.
  • Spinal cord injuries. Spinal cord injuries are some of the most serious injuries that can occur in a car accident. Spinal cord injuries can cause paralysis, loss of sensation, and other long-term problems.
  • Internal injuries. Internal injuries are injuries to the organs and tissues inside the body. Internal injuries can be caused by blunt force trauma or by penetrating objects, such as broken glass or metal. Internal injuries can be life-threatening, and they may require surgery to repair.
  • Whiplash. Whiplash is a neck injury that is caused by the sudden back-and-forth movement of the head. Whiplash is one of the most common injuries in car accidents, and it can cause a variety of symptoms, including neck pain, stiffness, headache, dizziness, and fatigue.
  • Herniated discs. Spinal discus are the rubbery cushions that sit between the bones (vertebrae) in your spinal column. When the exterior of the risk is torn or ruptured, the interior of the disc can squeeze out. This is a herniated disc, and it can be painful, or lead to tingling or weakness. In some cases, the only treatment is surgery.

In addition to the physical injuries listed above, car accidents can also cause emotional trauma. Emotional trauma can include symptoms such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and grief.

If you have been involved in a car accident that wasn’t your fault, it is important to seek medical attention immediately, even if you do not think you are injured. Some injuries, such as whiplash and concussions, may not cause symptoms immediately. It is also important to contact the experienced car accident attorneys at Ferrara & Gable to discuss your legal rights and options.

Who is liable for my Cherry Hill car accident?

The person or entity liable for your car accident will depend on the specific circumstances of the case. However, some common parties who may be liable for car accidents include:

  • Other drivers. If another driver's negligence caused your car accident, the other driver may be liable for your damages. If your injuries were the result of a collision with a tractor-trailer or other commercial vehicle, the trucking company itself may bear some liability.
  • Other third parties. Negligent non-drivers – including pedestrians, cyclists, roadworkers, motorcycle operators, and others – may be liable if their actions caused a collision.
  • Government entities. If a government entity, such as a city or state, is responsible for a road defect or other hazardous condition that caused your car accident, the government entity may be liable for your damages.
  • Product manufacturers. If a defective product, such as a tire or brake, caused your car accident, the manufacturer of the product may be liable for your damages.

To prove liability, you will need to show that the other party owed you a duty of care, that the other party breached that duty, and that the breach of duty caused your car accident.

What is the value of my Cherry Hill car accident case?

The value of your car accident claim will depend on several factors, including:

  • Severity of the injuries. The more severe your injuries are, the higher the value of your claim will likely be. This is because more severe injuries typically require more medical care and rehabilitation, and can result in more long-term disability.
  • Long-term effects of the injuries. The long-term effects of your injuries will also play a role in determining the value of your claim. If you have permanent disabilities or cognitive impairment because of the accident, your claim will likely be worth more than if you make a full recovery.
  • Cost of medical expenses and lost wages. The cost of your medical expenses and lost wages will also be considered when determining the value of your claim. If you have incurred significant medical expenses or lost a lot of wages because of the accident, your claim will likely be worth more.
  • Pain and suffering. Pain and suffering is a non-economic loss, but it is still a valid part of a car accident lawsuit. The amount of pain and suffering you and your family have experienced will be considered when determining the value of your claim.

Every client and every claim is different, so the value of your claim will depend on the specifics of your case. Talk to our Cherry Hill attorneys in a free consultation to find out the amount of compensation to which you may be entitled.
