Leading causes of motor vehicle accidents
Accidents happen. But motor vehicle accidents usually happen for a reason, such as someone’s negligence. Crashes related to cell phone usage totaled 3,571 in 2015, according to the New Jersey Department of Transportation. In addition, other factors that contribute to car accidents may include:
- Driving while under the influence (DUI or DWI) of alcohol or drugs
- Distracted driving
- Failure to adhere to traffic laws and signs
- Vehicle malfunction
Injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident fall under the realm of personal injury law, which is designed to protect those injured due to another person or entity’s negligence.
Types of motor vehicle accidents
Motor vehicle accidents typically involve cars but may also involve municipal equipment as well as any of the following:
- Commercial trucks
- Public transportation
- Uber/ Lyft/ Ride Share Accidents
- Mass transit
Regardless of the type of motor vehicle accident that caused your injuries, if another entity’s negligence was the cause of the accident, you may file a personal injury claim to recover damages.
Motor vehicle accident claims: know the time limits
The time limit for filing a claim – known as the statute of limitations – for personal injuries is two years from the date of the accident in the state of New Jersey. Claims that are filed after this two-year timeframe will not be heard in the New Jersey court system and the injured victim will be unable to receive any compensation for the injuries suffered.
