Thanks to advancements in technology, cars on New Jersey highways and streets are safer than ever before, from airbags and lane departure warnings to automatic braking systems and 360-degree cameras. However, these safety features cannot protect drivers when they engage in risky behaviors. At Rosenberg, Kirby, Cahill, Stankowitz & Richardson our experienced attorneys represent clients seriously injured in motor vehicle accidents due to driver negligence.

The AAA Foundation 2017 Traffic Safety Culture Index reports that while many drivers want to be safer on the roads, their activities while behind the wheel do not echo that sentiment. Distracted driving has taken center stage in recent years. When you are on the highway, and the driver next to you is using a hand-held cell phone, texting or reading an email, there could be severe repercussions if their attention wanders from the road for even a few seconds.

If you have witnessed a vehicle go through a stoplight or spotted a car going more than 15 miles per hour over the speed limit on surface streets or highways, you have observed risky and aggressive driving behaviors. Despite the social disapproval and deleterious effects of these behaviors, almost half of drivers admit to them.

Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol is against the law in all 50 states. Although the vast majority of drives consider operating while intoxicated a safety risk, most admit that they may have gotten behind the wheel and likely been close to the legal limit.

If you have been injured in an accident and the driver exhibited any of these behaviors, there may be grounds for a negligence claim. Visit our webpage for more information on this topic.
