Morris County Attorney Helps Clients Collect Reimbursement for Common Injuries Resulting from Car Accidents
Succasunna vehicle collision lawyer fights on behalf of victims
Driving can be a dangerous activity for even the safest New Jersey residents, thanks to high congestion and negligent motorists. Morris and Sussex counties have some of the most dangerous roads in New Jersey: I-80, I-287 and Route 23 were among the 20 highways with the most fatalities in the state in 2018. Victims who survive may still suffer a range of common injuries from New Jersey car accidents, some of them traumatic and life-altering. My firm, Kevin T. Kutyla, Esq. in Succasunna, is committed to obtaining appropriate compensation for people who have been hurt in crashes. I am board-certified in civil trial practice and have more than 25 years of legal experience assisting clients throughout the area.
How do traffic accidents cause injuries?
Not every car crash causes injury, but a number of factors can cause or increase the chances and severity of injuries during one. These include:
- Sudden lane changes
- Head-on collisions
- Rear-end collisions
- Automobile rollovers
- Collisions with trucks
- Collisions with barriers and other roadside obstacles
- Motorcycle lane splitting
- Drunk driving
No matter what caused your accident and injuries, I am ready to use my experience as a Morris and Sussex County personal injury attorney to help maximize the amount you receive in a verdict or settlement.
What are the common injuries that result from a traffic accident?
Car accidents often result in certain types of injuries, including:
- Soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash, which involves muscle and ligament strains of the neck and upper back
- Abrasions that can be painful and might lead to a loss of blood
- Head injuries, which may result in concussion, unconsciousness and/or long-term effects
- Chest injuries, ranging from bruises to broken ribs and organ damage
- Bone sprains and fractures
Even if you don’t appear to experience any pain or trauma immediately after the accident, you might still be injured. Sometimes, physical injuries don’t become apparent until later. Accident victims often suffer psychological injuries, such as emotional distress and mental anguish. If you are in an auto accident, it is best to seek medical attention immediately to get the care you need and document your injuries. I thoroughly review medical records and other pertinent information so I can pursue full compensation for the people I represent.
What kind of compensation can you get for your injuries?
If you are injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, there are several types of damages you’re entitled to seek in a lawsuit against the culpable parties:
- Your past and future medical expenses
- Your lost earnings
- Your loss of future earning capacity
- The cost of replacing or repairing the car
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of the enjoyment of life
If I represent you in an auto accident personal injury lawsuit, I will seek all damages to which you are entitled and develop a comprehensive strategy to maximize the likelihood of a favorable outcome.
