The Mayor of Englewood Cliffs, Joseph Parisi, released the latest statistics on the busy intersection of Route 9W and Palisade Avenue. Collisions at the intersection have dropped over the past year. Officials are attributing the decrease to the borough's red-light cameras. Total collisions at the busy intersection fell to 23 from June 2012 to May 2013, compared to 30 crashes during the prior 12 months. Rear-end collisions fell from 19 to 13, and broadside crashes dropped from eight to two. Full article.
If you have been in a rear end collision it is important to seek medical attention right away. Often times, insurance adjusters take a hard stance on personal injury claims resulting from rear end collisions. It is important to have medical evidence obtained shortly following the accident because the insurance company may refuse to provide adequate compensation for your injuries. Pain and suffering damages are included in car accident claims where the claimant was injured. The final figure is usually determined by the seriousness of the injuries and the nature and extent of necessary medical treatment.
