Over 30,000 motor vehicle fatalities occur each year in the United States. Severe and fatal personal injury occurs when motor vehicles collide with other passenger vehicles causing, bus accidents, truck accidents, tractor trailer accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents and pedestrian accidents. There are many causes of car accidents, most of which are preventable and due to the reckless or careless actions of another. If you have suffered one of these injuries due to another’s negligence, it is important you consult with a New Jersey car accident lawyer to discuss filing an injury claim. An experienced injury lawyer can help guide you through the legal process and ensure that your rights are protected at each step.
Physical injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents range from mild cuts and scrapes to significant bodily harm. Motor vehicle accident victims commonly suffer from broken or fractured bones, muscle sprains and strains, nerve damage, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, eye injuries, concussions, loss of limbs, internal bleeding and other traumatic brain injuries.
Car accident victims may be faced with high medical bills including the costs of past and future medical treatment, prescriptions, rehabilitation and physical therapy, as well as lost wages, diminished earning capacity and costs related to physical damage to their vehicle.
Medical treatment for car accident injuries may be necessary for years following the accident. Car accident victims, with the help of a New Jersey car accident attorney may also recover for their emotional distress and pain and suffering under certain circumstances. In wrongful death cases, the surviving family members may also be entitled to compensation for the costs of funeral expenses.
Car accident victims seeking to obtain compensation for their injuries may file personal injury lawsuits against several potentially responsible parties including the driver, auto manufacturers and designers, road designers, road maintenance companies and even government entities. When the carelessness or recklessness of any of these parties leads to a motor vehicle accident, a claim for negligence exists.
Car accident victims should always consult an experienced car accident lawyer in New Jersey prior to resolving any claim with insurance companies or other drivers. Insurance companies have legal teams working on their behalf and so should you. Time is of the essence in dealing with automobile accident claims. New Jersey law requires that injured individuals file their claims against responsible parties within a certain period of time. This is known as the statute of limitations. Failure to do so may result in an injured person’s forfeiture of their rights.
Pictures from the automobile accident scene, witness information and police reports are other important forms of evidence in motor vehicle accident lawsuits. It is also important for injured individuals to keep detail records of all medical treatment received as a result of the accident and a log of all conversations held with insurance companies and other potentially responsible parties. This information is critical to the success of your car accident lawsuit.

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.

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.
Results may vary depending on your particular facts and legal circumstances.
