Legal Assistance with Highway Accidents in Gloucester County
Serving victims of interstate and highway car accidents
All car accidents are capable of causing serious injuries and possibly death. However, accidents that occur on highways are usually more severe than those that occur on local roads because there are more drivers and the speed limit is much higher. At Brown, Novick & McKinley Attorneys at Law, we are proud to take care of anyone who suffers an injury on a highway or interstate road. We realize a car accident can affect everyone in your life, and we are determined to help you obtain the compensation you deserve when you suffer injury through the negligence of someone else.
What causes a highway accident?
Interstate collisions can involve any type of vehicle. Auto accidents, truck and bus accidents and motorcycle accidents can all occur on highways. Below are some of the common causes for crashes that happen on interstate roadways:
- Speeding: One of the most common causes of highway accidents is speeding. In New Jersey, most interstate roads have a designated speed limit of 55–65 mph. Drivers who exceed the limit can have a difficult time controlling and stopping their vehicles.
- Poorly designed on and off ramps: Entering and exiting a highway should be a smooth process. However, not all on and off ramps are intuitively designed. If you are injured because of a poorly designed highway exit or entry ramp, Brown, Novick & McKinley Attorneys at Law can investigate your accident and determine if you have enough evidence to build a case.
- Road construction: The presence of road work or construction can confuse drivers and possibly lead to an accident.
- Defective roads: Since motorists on highways and interstates are moving at high speeds, it is vital that these roads be well maintained and free of defects. Uneven pavement and potholes can cause catastrophic injury or even death to drivers, especially motorcyclists.
The physical, emotional and psychological pain of a highway accident can be unbearable. Our lawyers act compassionately and promptly to assist injury victims in obtaining compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills and lost wages.
