New Jersey Car Accident Lawyers
Why do you need a New Jersey car accident lawyer?
One of the top reasons you need an experienced New Jersey car accident lawyer is to help you deal with insurance companies. In our experience, the insurance companies’ interests are much different than yours. If you have sustained serious injuries, having your claim reduced or denied would be devastating to your recovery. If you have been seriously injured in a car accident, reach out as soon as possible and connect with the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm.
After a car accident, you should talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer, particularly if you are injured, to ensure your rights are protected. There are other very good reasons to hire a car accident attorney if you have been in an accident in New Jersey. Here are ten reasons why you need a skilled car accident lawyer at your side:
01 Expert Advice
If you have been involved in a collision you have an endless number of questions, ranging from: “Whose vehicle insurance is going to pay for this?” to “Can I get compensation for my injuries to pay my medical bills?” Hiring a New Jersey car accident attorney means you get straightforward answers right away to those questions and more.
02 No-fault insurance guidance
New Jersey is a no-fault insurance state and that means auto accidents can be handled in two ways. Accidents involving minor injuries are typically handled via the no-fault route, meaning your personal car insurance policy compensates you for losses. However, serious injury accident victims may seek additional financial compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
03 Handling communications with an insurance company
We strongly advise that you do not speak to anyone about your accident without the advice of a New Jersey car accident attorney. They are your advocate and take care of all communications/negotiations between your insurance company and any other driver’s insurance company that was involved in your accident.
04 Reconstructing your accident
Some accidents need to be investigated by an accident reconstruction specialist. This assessment determines who was at fault and how the accident happened. A New Jersey car accident attorney handles all of these arrangements for you to ensure you receive fair and equitable compensation for your injuries.
05 Assessing your injuries to determine compensation
Each injury sustained is evaluated according to the severity and type of injury. A New Jersey car accident attorney knows how to properly evaluate your medical expenses and other damages and how to correctly evaluate your medical documentation. The insurance company tends to contest the amount of compensation you may be entitled to as a result of your auto accident.
06 Ensuring compensation is sent in a timely manner
Many insurance companies can afford to wait to pay out a settlement or court award. Your New Jersey car accident attorney knows how to expedite the payment process so you get your settlement or jury award in a timely manner.
07 Trial versus settlement
Not all New Jersey car accident lawsuits go to trial. Many cases are settled through pre-trial settlement negotiations. Those injured in car accidents do not have the necessary experience in assessing or negotiating an injury settlement, and hence, could undervalue or overvalue their claim. An experienced New Jersey car accident attorney is a skilled negotiator in these situations and ensures that you obtain the compensation you deserve.
08 Trial advocacy when required
Certain car accident cases do go to trial for a variety of reasons, and therefore you need an experienced New Jersey car accident attorney to advocate for you. The insurance company at trial will have their lawyers present and you need an attorney who represents your interests to ensure a fair and equitable trial.
09 Determining liability
While it may seem clear to you who caused the car accident you were involved in, the other party or parties and their insurance companies may not agree. We determine who is at fault in a variety of ways, such as by hiring a professional investigator and/or visiting the crash scene ourselves to gather evidence before it is compromised.
10 Understanding medical terminology
An experienced New Jersey car accident attorney is well versed in the medical terminology of your case, documenting how your injuries are going to affect your life going forward, and assessing how the accident impacts you financially. Attempting to represent yourself may cost you thousands of dollars in compensation and impede your recovery.
