Car Accident Attorney in Clifton, NJ

New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyer Helps Car Accident Victims Collect Financial Damages in Passaic County, Union County, and Essex County

The Fatal Accident Investigation Unit of the New Jersey State Police reported a reduction in fatal auto accidents in 2013; 508 crashes resulted in 542 deaths. While the reduced number (45 fewer collisions and 47 fewer fatalities than the prior calendar year) is good news, fatal traffic accidents are still the leading cause of accidental death in the state of New Jersey.

There is no question that when car accidents happen in New Jersey, the results can be disastrous. If you or someone you love has been injured in an auto accident, don’t wait another moment. Contact a skilled, experienced car accident lawyer who will investigate what happened that caused your injuries or a loved one’s wrongful death. Andrew Calcagno is an aggressive lawyer who will put his many years of experience to work obtaining maximum damages for your family. He has successfully represented car accident victims throughout New Jersey, including Paterson, Wayne, Bloomfield, Howell, Middletown, Roselle, and Springfield, NJ.

Common Injuries Sustained in Car Accidents in Elizabeth, Woodbridge, and Perth Amboy, NJ

Car accidents in Plainfield, Rahway, Roselle, Scotch Plains, Springfield, and the surrounding towns often result in serious, if not deadly, consequences. This is even more true if the car crash involved a motorcycle, truck or bus. Common injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents include:

  • Internal injuries
  • Head, neck and spinal trauma
  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Whiplash and concussions
  • Heart attacks and strokes
  • Severe mental anguish

What’s worse is that many less obvious injuries are not immediately known directly after the accident. In the hours and days after a crash, shock and adrenaline often cloud one’s judgement and ability to feel pain. It’s important to seek medical treatment immediately and follow doctor’s orders exactly. Additionally, if you find yourself dealing with any new symptoms, blurry vision, nausea, severe pain, etc., you need to go back to the doctor to be re-evaluated.

Mr. Calcagno will review all your medical records in an effort to make sure you receive maximum compensation for your injuries. He won’t be bullied by insurance companies looking for a quick settlement. He will protect your rights and interests following your car, truck or motorcycle crash in Summit, Union, Watchung, Westfield, or anywhere else in New Jersey.

Andrew Calcagno Is an Experienced Newark Personal Injury Lawyer Who Will Hold All Responsible Parties Liable for Your Auto Accident Injuries

Car accident lawyer Andrew Calcagno will work tirelessly to protect your rights and obtain maximum compensation if you or a loved one has been injured in any of the following types of auto accidents:

  • Rear-end collision
  • Hit-and-run accidents
  • SUV rollovers
  • Motorcycle crashes
  • Truck accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Train and subway accidents

Following a car accident, it’s important to get a full understanding of what happened that caused the accident. Andrew Calcagno works with skilled accident investigators and reconstruction specialists. He will review all medical records, witness statements and police reports. He will determine whether any illegal factors are in play: was the driver of the other car drunk, driving recklessly or using a cell phone and therefore distracted?

There are many potential liable parties including the driver(s) of the other vehicles involved in an accident or possibly the manufacturer of your car or any car parts. For example, if your car is equipped with a recalled Takata airbag, and you are injured in an accident due to metal shards flying out from the airbag, you may be able to hold the product maker liable for your injuries.

Whatever or whomever caused your accident, rest assured, Mr. Calcagno will get to the bottom of it and use the information to get you the compensation you deserve. If the person who caused your accident is uninsured or underinsured, you can rely on Mr. Calcagno to fight hard to win you the damage you need to pay your bills and more.
