Experienced New Jersey Personal Injury Attorneys
If you are the victim of a serious car accident in New Jersey, it is important that you speak with experienced legal counsel as soon as possible. At Brandon J. Broderick, Attorney at Law, we are determined to provide our clients with the comprehensive knowledge they need to get started. Our New Jersey personal injury lawyers offer a compassionate and determined approach to the individual cases they take on.
We are committed to steering clients towards getting the compensation they deserve for their auto accident case involving:
- Drunk driving: A person is considered drinking and driving if their Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) level surpasses the legal limit. A BAC level is identified as the amount of alcohol that is in someone's system. For individuals 21 and older, they are considered driving while intoxicated if their BAC level is at 0.08% or higher. Under the age of 21, the limit is reduced to 0.02%. Not only is a drunk driver breaking the law, but they are a considerable risk to the other drivers around.
- Rear-end collisions: When a person runs the front of their car into the back of another person's car, this is known as a rear-end collision. The at-fault driver may have been speeding, distracted, negligent or tailgating. There may also be times in which the person in front slammed on their brakes and stopped abruptly.
- Head-on collisions: Head-on collisions are identified when the front of two vehicles run into each other. This typically happens when one driver goes into oncoming traffic and crashes directly into another car.
- T-bone accidents: These types of accidents occur when the front of one auto runs into the side of another. If the at-fault driver hits the side of a car where a person is sitting, it can cause serious and even permanent injuries to this victim involved. T-bone accidents may happen when someone is pulling out of their driveway, pulling into oncoming traffic, turning right or turning out of a parking lot.
- Rollover: Rollover accidents occur when a car rolls onto its side or completely upside-down. SUVs are more susceptible to being involved in rollover accidents because of their higher center of gravity and narrow track width.
- Texting while driving: New Jersey bans all individuals from texting while driving behind the wheel. Novice drivers and bus drivers face an additional ban of not being allowed to use the cell phones at all. A texting driver is not only breaking the law and losing focus on the road, but they are placing a hazard to everyone else around them.
- Single vehicle: Single vehicle accidents involve only one car. Whether the driver attempted to swerve past an object/animal in the road, swerve to avoid a negligent driver, lost control because of poor weather conditions or due to mechanical problems, it can be rather difficult to get the appropriate amount of compensation for the damages and injuries that occur.
- Multi-vehicle: This type of car accident involves two or more vehicles. It can be identified as a drunk driving accident, head-on collision or even a pile up with multiple cars. The more cars that are involved in an accident, the more complicated it can become to get the compensation you deserve for your injuries or damages.

Do I need an attorney if I've already been offered a settlement?
The offer you received from the insurance company is almost certainly less than what you are entitled to, by a significant margin. Insurance companies, just like any other business, are structured to maximize their own profits, and in addition to offering a minimal amount in any settlement, they will also commonly employ aggressive tactics against claimants like you to discourage requests for full compensation. We can not only advise you of what your case is really worth, but also provide skilled representation to help you recover damages.
How much is my case worth?
Each personal injury case is unique, and your attorney will consult with you in detail to help you determine the full value of your claim. In any fair settlement, you should expect to receive enough money to cover all your medical bills, from emergency treatment at the scene of the accident to rehabilitative care to help you fully recover. Claims of this nature should also cover the amount of income you will lose due to the injury from missing work or inability to perform on your job, as well as compensation for the pain and suffering you experienced.
How long will it take to resolve my case?
A variety of factors will play into how long it takes to get your insurance settlement, from the availability of evidence to support your claim to how cooperative the insurance company is and how effectively you can prepare your case. At our firm, our legal team takes every case seriously and we will do everything possible to achieve a successful resolution for you. We will also keep you informed throughout the entire process about what you may be up against and how long you can expect your case to take.
