Blume Forte Can Help You Obtain Full Compensation in Your New Jersey Motor Vehicle Accident Case

In New Jersey, as in other states, even if you can successfully prove that the defendant was negligent, reckless, or intentionally liable for your injuries — and therefore “win” the motor vehicle litigation at issue — you will not necessarily obtain full compensation. Effective litigation requires that your attorney persuasively argue that you are not only entitled to damages, but that you are entitled to the specific damages asserted in your lawsuit. The difference between securing damages of $500,000 and securing damages of $100,000 is quite substantial and can greatly impact your recovery. Your attorney must be capable of negotiating damages that closely approximate your actual damages or otherwise obtaining an adequate award at trial.

Motor vehicle accident litigation can be surprisingly complex below the surface. Upon initial review, you might not realize the ways in which litigation can be complicated by the unique circumstances surrounding your various injury claims. What may appear to be a basic collision between two vehicles might actually involve liability that attaches to other parties, such as a third driver or a private landowner. Successful motor vehicle litigation requires a team of attorneys that has a proven ability to effectively navigate the hidden complexities and dynamic nature of such lawsuits in New Jersey.

New Jersey law gives motor vehicle accident victims (like other injury victims) a limited time in which to file their claims. As such, it’s important that you consult with one of our attorneys before your claims expire. Call our offices today to set up a free consultation with one of our experienced attorneys.

Frequently Asked Questions About Motor Vehicle Accidents

FAQ: How much does it cost to hire an auto accident lawyer?

The attorneys at Blume Forte work on a contingency basis. This means we only get paid if we win your case. The fee will be a fixed percentage of whatever is awarded to you at the end of the trial. Our firm also offers a free initial consultation to discuss the details of your claim. 
During the consultation, your lawyer will further discuss any other fees and costs associated with hiring a lawyer.

FAQ: What to do when a motor vehicle accident happens to you?

If you’re involved in a motor vehicle accident you should always call the police. Having a police report is important if you wish to file a lawsuit down the road. Capture the scene of the accident by taking pictures and videos of the wreck. After the accident, you should seek medical attention regardless of how severe you think your injuries are. Many motor vehicle accident injuries can show up later. If you believe someone else’s negligence was the cause of your accident, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you with your case.

FAQ: What is the average motor vehicle accident case worth?

The worth of your case is going to be dependent on the severity of your damages. These include your injuries, lost wages, medical bills, and lost earning capacity. The more serious your damages the higher your possible compensation will be. Speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer to get a better understanding of what your case may be worth. A lawyer will be able to give you an estimate based on your damages.
