New Jersey Car Accident Lawyers
With nearly 6.5 million automobile accidents occurring in the United States each year, there is a significant likelihood that you will eventually be involved in one. As a driver or passenger in an automobile accident, you could face injuries that range from minor to severe, some possibly life-threatening; or a loved one may even pass away as a result of their injuries. The law allows victims of automobile accidents to seek compensation from the parties responsible for their injuries.
If you are involved in an automobile or truck accident in New Jersey, no matter how minor, make sure to stay on the scene (if you are not taken to the hospital by emergency vehicles) and document everything you can. NEVER ADMIT FAULT at the scene of an accident. Instead, ask the other driver and witnesses for their contact information, driver’s license numbers, insurance information, license plate numbers, and, if possible, take photos of the crash scene, the vehicles, and any visible injuries. Seek the proper medical treatment immediately, documenting all care. Maintaining good records can assist your attorney in securing appropriate compensation for the injuries suffered.
Insurance companies may encourage you to address issues with regard to the automobile accident through them. However, they may not provide the compensation to which you are entitled. Don't opt for a quick settlement. It is imperative that you contact an experienced auto accident attorney for advice on the value of your claim including damages surrounding lost wages, rehabilitation and medical treatment related costs, the costs of potential future medical care, and pain and suffering claims.
