New Jersey Car Accident Attorneys Represents Victims of Crashes on the NJ Turnpike, the Garden State Parkway, I-297, Route 10, Route 46, and Route 80
New Jersey’s 9,032,872 residents (as of 2018) share roads and highways with those traveling to the neighboring states of New York, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and beyond. With millions of motor vehicles on the road, accidents are inevitable. Tragically, throughout New Jersey, motorists face the risk of disastrous injuries and fatalities. While some might fear dying in an airplane crash more than a car accident, the reality is that the likelihood of dying in an airplane crash is one in 1 million, while the odds of dying in a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, or some other type of motor vehicle accident are around one in 645. Moreover, the odds of being seriously injured in a car accident are one in 123.
Kind of scary, isn’t it? But even more frightening is the fact that no matter how careful, responsible, and conscientious you may be as a driver, the unpredictable can still happen.

Devastating Injuries Suffered in New Jersey Highway Crashes
While many New Jersey roads are considered death traps because of the high number of serious accidents and fatalities that occur on them every year, our interstate highways and roads are surprisingly considered some of the safest in the U.S. However, despite New Jersey’s safer roads, recent NJ Department of Transportation reports document nearly 84,000 state highway crashes in a 12-month period. Those accidents resulted in 254 fatalities and 20,969 serious injuries.
In 2017, 625 people died on New Jersey roads, resulting from 592 accidents. In particular, Interstate 287, the New Jersey Turnpike, the Garden State Parkway, and Routes 10, 46, 80, and 78 have seen an inordinate number of serious traffic accidents.
Last year, the number of New Jersey highway fatalities increased, but the biggest dangers were on shorter roads, such as those in shopping areas or at intersections. Additionally, some New Jersey roads are more dangerous than others because of reckless, negligent, and distracted drivers, while poor road maintenance is also a common cause of collisions on highways in Parsippany and elsewhere in NJ.
