“I came to Ed after being badgered by insurance company from the party that mowed me down, and was getting very little help from my own insurance company. I had never been in this position. I was in over my head, with just trying to fit in doctor visits and appointments into a already jam packed work/life schedule.Ed gave me a frank upfront assessment of my situation. He told me to stop worrying about the harassment and focus on getting healthy. He said if I wanted he would take care of getting the insurance adjusters in line and cooperating. He did just that.While going through treatments, surgeries, and recovery he checked in, kept me apprised of what he was researching and giving the technical legal options that were available. Whenever I had questions or needed help, he was always prompt to return calls and handle what needed to be handled.I never felt lost, confused, or pressured, he made sure I was aware of options and what to expect on the horizon. There were no surprises.When it came down to the "end game" , he stayed steady and resolute and got a very fair judgement in my favor.I would not hesitate to tell a friend or family member to sit down with Ed if they found themselves in a similar situation.”

Truck Accident

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT), over 500,000 accidents involving trucks occur every year in this country.

Being involved in an accident with a truck can be a serious, often tragic event. When you are hit by a truck as a driver or passenger in a smaller vehicle, your chances of sustaining significant personal injuries are increased.

Trucks of all kinds, whether flatbeds, tankers, 18-wheelers, big rigs, tractor trailers, or any commercial truck, pack an enormous amount of weight, breadth, and height. Combine this with highway speeds and you have a recipe for major damage when things go out of control.

Many of these happen on interstate highways. New Jersey is centrally located at the intersection of major state and interstate trucking routes, making motorists in the state vulnerable to trucking accidents.

In addition, New Jersey ranks #1 in population density among all 50 states, making the likelihood of a serious motor vehicle accident even greater.

    I have been recently seeing a trend in auto insurance companies issuing auto policies with minimal personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. New Jersey is a “no fault” state, meaning that regardless of fault the injured person’s own auto insurance policy covers his own medical bills resulting from treatment of injuries sustained in a car accident.

The beautiful foliage along with the brisk weather invites the opportunity to take a casual drive with friends.
