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.

A Morris County, NJ real estate agent seriously injured in a car accident settled for $3,965,000

Our client, while in the course of employment with a local real estate agency, was traveling in her car in Morris County when she was struck head-on, suffering a traumatic brain injury and serious orthopedic injuries. She underwent multiple surgeries. To ensure our client had the best care from start to finish, we worked very closely with the client's doctors. We obtained a life care planner, multiple experts, and an economist to assess the full extent of her damages on this catastrophic workers' compensation claim. During mediation, our office was able to successfully settle the case.

A workers' compensation settlement involving a woman in Essex County, NJ settled for $3,100,000

During the course of her employment at US Airways Terminal at Newark International Airport, our client slipped and fell on ice while exiting an airplane. She was required to have three back surgeries, two fusions, and a cervical fusion. Although she was in her early forties, she was unable to go back to work. The attorneys at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm sued US Airways, the property manager, and the snow removal company. To establish liability and prove her damages, we hired a snow and ice remediation expert, a meteorologist, medical experts, a life care planner, and an economist. After a lengthy mediation, the Todd J. Leonard Team was able to obtain the best settlement for our client.

What Can I Expect During My Personal Injury Lawsuit?


Where do I start?

If you or your loved one are considering a personal injury lawsuit, you probably have many questions.


The following slides help explain the stages of a personal injury lawsuit, from injury to potential trial.

Step One



Consult a personal injury lawyer for a professional evaluation of your potential claim to determine its viability.


Prepare supporting documentation from your accident, including medical records, photos, insurance information and police reports.

Call for a free confidential consultation. There is never a fee unless you win.

Step Two



Your attorney will research your case to determine the nature and extent of your injuries and confirm who was at fault for your accident.


Your attorney will contact the insurance carrier(s) and other involved parties, and keep you informed of and negotiations and developments.

Step Three



Your attorney will begin negotiation with the insurance company representing the party or parties that injured you.


A monetary offer may be presented to your attorney to settle the case.

Your attorney will advise you, however, it is your decision whether or not to accept the defendant's offer and settle out of court.

Step Four



If a settlement cannot be reached, you and your attorney may decide to file a personal injury lawsuit.


There are three pre-trial phases: The Complaint and Answer Phase, The Discovery Phase, and the Motions Phase.

Step Five



When a case goes to trial, each party presents arguments to a judge and jury.


Mediation can be requested at any time. In mediation, both sides present their case and engage in negotiations facilitated by a neutral mediator. Mediations are non-binding.

Step Six



You may have to wait for your award to be distributed. The defense can appeal and ask a higher court to review the case.


Before you are paid, your lawyer is required to pay those with a legal claim, known as a lien, out of a special escrow account.

After your attorney pays all outside parties they will write you a check.
