A lawyer who handles intersection accidents in Northern New Jersey
In Millburn, accidents happen at Millburn Avenue and Main Street, Millburn Avenue and Vauxhall Road, Main Street and Essex Street, Hobart Gap Road/White Oak Ridge Road and Hobart Avenue, and other intersections throughout the township.
What causes intersection accidents? They are usually caused by negligent drivers. For example, a crash can be caused by:
- Running a red light or stop sign.
- Texting while driving.
- Speeding through an intersection.
- Failing to check for oncoming traffic before making a turn.
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
- Drowsy driving.
There are different types of intersection accidents. These include rear-end accidents, when one car crashes into the back of another that is stopped in the intersection. There are also head-on collisions when two cars travel into the intersection at the same time. Many collisions are T-bone/broadside accidents, in which the front of a car strikes the side of another.
An intersection crash can leave people seriously hurt, no matter what type of accident it was. People can be left with broken bones, traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injuries and other back injuries, damage to internal organs, and facial injuries.
Victims of intersection crashes need medical treatment, and expenses can add up quickly. These include the costs of ambulance services, diagnostic tests, X-rays and MRIs, surgery, hospital stays, medication, physical therapy, home health care, and multiple follow-up visits with doctors.
We guide you through the legal process
If you were injured in an intersection accident, you may worry about paying for these expenses, especially if you are left unable to work. If a negligent driver caused your accident, you shouldn’t have to pay. But the negligent driver may deny doing anything wrong and try to blame you for what happened.
Then there are the insurance companies. Attorney Leigh used to represent insurance companies and knows the tactics they use to try to limit compensation. He also saw how an insurance company treated a family member who needed medical treatment following an accident.
Insurance companies aren’t on your side after an accident, and they have adjusters and attorneys looking out for their best interests by trying to find ways to pay you less. That’s why you need an attorney who is ready to fight for you.

Attorney Leigh carefully reviews accident reports and other documentation, and interviews witnesses. If needed, we consult experts.
