Personal Injury Lawyer Serving Essex County

Essex County, Newark looms large as the most populous city in the Garden State, home to Liberty International Airport, and the county seat. Yet it is a varied area ranging from densely populated urban zones to plush, upscale suburbs. Home to almost 800,000 residents, Essex County is ethnically and economically diverse, and after decades of decline in its urban centers, the county is starting to show signs of revitalization. Brach Eichler Injury Lawyers has its principal office in Essex County, at 101 Eisenhower Parkway in Roseland. If you are injured due to someone’s negligence anywhere in the County, we are ready to provide the highest professional and personal representation you need to recover the compensation you deserve.

    Our car accident lawyers respond with Urgency

    Many major arteries wind through Essex County, which has more than 1,600 roadways. There are four long-distance Interstates, I-95, I-78, I-80, and I-280 with interchanges in Newark. The county also has four U.S. Routes crossing through it: the concurrent Rts. 1/9, Rt. 22, and Rt. 46. But perhaps the most vital thoroughfare, at least for commuters, is the Garden State Parkway which connects Essex to Union County in the south and Passaic County in the north.

    In 2016, there were 62,690 injury-causing accidents on roadways throughout Garden State, 6,696 of which occurred in Essex County. That number was about average for a county with over 6,000 injury accidents annually since 2008. As for fatal accidents, 2017 saw 40 deaths in 39 crashes. Most of those killed, 22, were pedestrians, and one was bicyclist. These grim statistics would seem to indicate that many Essex County surface streets are unreasonably unsafe for pedestrians.

    From our Roseland office, our attorneys represent injured drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and bicyclists in car, truck, and motorcycle accidents throughout Essex County.

    Our personal injury lawyers handle transit accidents

    Personal Injury Lawyer Serving Essex CountyEssex County has a far-reaching, multifaceted transit system that consists of:

    Buses — NJ Transit (NJT) headquarters is located at Newark Penn Station, which is one of the county’s major bus terminals. NJT also runs buses from the Irvington Bus Terminal, as do other bus lines, including DeCamp, Community Coach, and OurBus.

    Rail — Rapid transit in Essex County includes five New Jersey Transit train lines, the Newark Light Rail system, with 17 stations: the Newark City Subway; the Newark Broad Street Extension; PATH; Amtrak; and the monorail serving Newark Liberty International Airport.

    Airports —Newark Liberty International Airport, operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, is one of three New York metropolitan area airports for passenger and freight traffic. The Essex County Airport in Fairfield is a general aviation airport.

    Seaport — The Port Newark-Elizabeth Marine Terminal on Newark Bay is a container ship facility for goods entering and leaving the metropolitan area.

    With the volume of transit activity in Essex County, accidents and injuries are to be expected. But poor management of services often makes the situation worse. For example, New Jersey Transit is the nation’s third-largest public transportation system, but in 2016, NJT recorded more accidents than any of the 10 largest systems, and in fact had double the number of accidents of the nation’s largest commuter system, the Long Island Rail Road, including one fatal accident at the Hoboken Terminal.

    If you have been injured in a transit accident or a slip and fall at any transit facility in Essex County, you may be eligible to recover compensation for your economic losses and your pain and suffering. Our dedicated personal injury attorneys are ready to fight for you.
