Any type of car accident in Cherry Hill can have a serious impact and affect those involved in many ways. A common type of car accident, a rear-end collision, under Cherry Hill law is self-explanatory in the sense that if a person is hit from behind it is considered a rear-end collision. A side-impact collision under Cherry Hill law is when somebody is inside of their car that was run into by the front of another vehicle. That is either a side-impact or “T-bone” accident.
If you have been in a rear-end collision or a side-impact collision, an experienced Cherry Hill car accident lawyer can assist you in filing a claim. An auto accident lawyer can help a client in a collision by first making sure they get the right medical care and receive all the benefits they are entitled to under the insurance policy.
Cherry Hill is a congested and heavily traveled area. The roadways are congested and there are many people commuting to and from the city and traveling on major thoroughfares. Commonly, rear-end collisions are caused by people traveling too fast, or being distracted, or impaired. They are common accidents that happen up and down the corridors in Cherry Hill.
Generally, with a rear-end collision in Cherry Hill, the driver has struck somebody in front of them and is responsible, because under the law they are required to keep a safe distance at all times. However, there are circumstances where the driver that has been struck may bear some responsibility, for example, if the driver was not using a turn signal, has defective brake lights, or was not acting as a reasonable driver under the circumstances.
Experienced Cherry Hill lawyers will rely on their knowledge of the locality of to help determine fault in a rear-end collision and side-impact collision, the use of private investigators to obtain witness statements, as well as their understanding of the local area if and when a trial is necessary to be able to speak to a local jury.
When somebody is in a side-impact collision, the first thing they need to do is get appropriate medical care and then immediately retain an attorney who can start to preserve or protect evidence, deal with the insurance companies, and protect that individual’s rights.
Typically with side-impact collisions, there is significant damage to the vehicles involved as well as the deployment of airbags which may cause additional damage to the individual in the car. Airbags are great, but sometimes they cause more damage, depending on the degree of impact. Side-impact collisions or T-bone collisions happen all the time because somebody has run a red light, has not yielded at a yield or a stop sign, was distracted, was drunk driving, or tries to beat the light that is changing. These are various fact patterns.
In a side-impact collision, people injured are entitled to pursue economic damages, non-economic damages, and depending on the factual circumstances, potentially punitive damages. Non-economic damages for rear-end collisions or side-impact collisions include things such as pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, disability, or impairment. Economic damages include medical bills, expenses, lost wages, out-of-pocket expenses incurred, and property damage incurred. Punitive damages result when there is egregious conduct, they are meant to punish the responsible party.
Most people that have been involved in a rear-end collision or side-impact collision in Cherry Hill have never been through such a situation. They can be asked a lot of questions and can easily take advantage of by an experienced insurance company that deals with these issues all the time. That is why it is important for somebody involved in a car accident to contact an attorney who has the same amount of experience as the insurance companies in dealing with these issues.
The attorney can also make sure evidence is preserved and protected. Finally, the attorney can help deal with insurance companies to obtain or maximize the result without a lawsuit being filed and, if necessary, file a lawsuit and take the case away to the verdict to maximize somebody’s recovery.
This team is incredible. They are friendly and knowledgeable. I appreciate everything they have done for me and would recommend them to anyone. Overall great experience
My case settled recently after lasting 4 years. Grungo and Colarulo’s law firm were able to secure a large settlement award for my slip and fall accident. This money will help secure my future for the permanent injury I received as a result of the slip and fall. Everyone was very caring, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. Christine Lafferty is an excellent litigation lawyer. I highly recommend using them if you have been injured or in an accident. I hope I am never in a situation again to need their services, but I know who to go to if I, or any of my family members are ever injured. Thanks Grungo and Colarulo and staff for your compassionate service!
Thank you so much Grungo and Colarulo for helping me with my case. Special thanks to Erica Domingo, Esquire and her team. Erica Domingo and her team was very nice and helped me tremendously throughout my case like more than one year and half. They gave me the right advice and guided me through every step of my case. They gave me prompt and clear responses to all my questions. In addition, Erica and her team provided me with all the what if scenarios so that I can have a clear vison of the steps ahead.
I would definitely recommend Grungo and Colarulo.

My wife and I reached out to Grungo Colarulo in 2020 for advise on a legal matter. After a meeting with the Attorney and Paralegal, we decided to go forward with a case. This case required a lot of documentation, and expert review of the documentation which was aquired. Throughout the process, we were kept up to date monthly, and Grungo Colarulo was always responsive to any questions that we had. The entire staff at Grungo Colarulo are very professional, caring, and willing to go the extra mile. This firm is a definite recommend!
I left five (5) stars only because that’s as many as I could leave. If I could, I would have left 100 stars. Bob & Christine are the absolute best! My settlement far exceeded what I ever imagined. They are professional, friendly, and really listened to what I had to say. They kept me up to date with the progress of my case every step of the way. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Very professional, communicates well, makes me feel like they have my best interest at heart, and overall just a great company. Christine and the whole team has been on top of everything. Would definitely recommend!! 10/10

A dear family friend referred us to a young attorney named Rich Grungo, Jr. We wanted answers and if necessary, justice for our father. From day one of a five-year journey, Mr. Rich Grungo, Jr. made our family and our pain his own. The man never stopped working for us. He kept us informed every step of the way. Questions were answered quickly and with great compassion and expertise. Even though Rich was always busy, he was never too busy for us. We always felt like we were his only clients
I had the opportunity to observe Mr. Grungo work in this case, both in the courtroom on the technical matters of the motions and also as his presentation to the jury in opening and presenting witnesses as well as utilizing animations… and drawings and films that were necessary for a proper understanding of the case…At all times during the presentation, Mr. Grungo operated mostly without notes and questioned the witnesses in a conversational manner which made it most effective. **
Thank you for everything. I honestly felt like you treated my son like he was your own son, for that I am grateful. I would recommend your services to anyone. Thanks for being so awesome to both of us.
It was a pleasure working with Bill. He constantly kept me informed. I would recommend Bill and his firm to anybody I know. They’ll be in good hands.
I had the opportunity to retain Mr. Colarulo for a vehicle accident I encountered. I give him my highest recommendation for anyone in need of an excellent Personal Injury Attorney. Not only does he have an in depth knowledge of the legal field, but he emanates a sense of trust-worthiness that makes you feel secure during the entire process. Mr. Colarulo has the knowledge, drive and enthusiasm that will get the job done for you. He comes highly recommended.
Hi Rich, Well I’m on my way up to college to finish packing my son’s stuff up and to go to his Graduation tomorrow. It’s hard to believe how fast and how slow, at the same time 5 years can go by. I was just thinking of you as I am getting ready to leave and wanted to thank you once again for everything you have done for my son’s future. You are a good and just man. God Bless to you and your family.
