Thank you for standing by me and believing in me. You never gave up on me. When the odds were against me and I felt I didn’t have a chance, you kept reassuring me not to give up hope. I still can’t believe the amount after the deposition. I felt I didn’t stand a chance. You are the most amazing person and I am indebted to you forever! To my hard working attorney

Leonard Law Firm went beyond the norm to ensure our case was settled. He was an exemplary lawyer whose services were a nice welcome considering all the aggravation my wife and I would have gone through had he not covered all aspects of our case. We are so thankful to him and his office. His knowledge of the case set our lives at ease. He was relentless until the case was fully settled and all was in our favor. Thank you so much. We highly recommend his office to anyone.

Car Accidents and Injuries
Car accidents are a very common cause of injury, which can result in mild, moderate, or severe injuries, or sadly, they can cause fatal injuries. In the immediate aftermath of a car accident that causes injury, most people’s first instinct is to contact their insurance companies to make a claim. In many cases, especially serious auto accident cases, it is important to consult an experienced personal injury lawyer before talking with your insurance company and the defendants to make sure all of your rights are protected.
Types of Car Accidents
Car crashes come in many forms and have a variety of root causes. Some of the most common types of car accidents we’ve seen at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm include:
Why You Need a Car Accident Lawyer
When someone is injured in a car accident, they are dealing with an insurance company that is more concerned about minimizing its own losses than is about compensating the injured person fairly. Your legal right to seek financial compensation after a car accident in New Jersey depends on the type of insurance coverage you have, and may also depend on the other driver’s coverage. Your car insurance includes either a limitation on the right to sue or no limitation on the right to sue. We can explain your insurance policy to you in clear terms that will help you gain a complete understanding of your legal options after a car accident.
It is also important to seek legal advice immediately after a car accident because there may have been factors contributing to the accident. At the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm, we have substantial experience handling complex car accident cases. There are many benefits to speaking with a car accident lawyer after an injury.
Car Accident Injuries Can Be Life-Altering
Our experienced New Jersey personal injury attorneys will be able to help you determine the cause(s) of your car accident, as well as what its direct consequences will be. For many people, the most drastic result of their car accident is the serious injuries they must deal with, now and in the future. Drivers and passengers in serious car accidents often suffer injuries that can leave them hospitalized, permanently disabled, or can prove to be fatal. Some of the other injuries we’ve seen in our more than 30 years of helping people after being hurt in car accidents include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, fractured bones, herniated discs, neck, chest, pelvis and leg injuries. Other serious injuries include:
After an accident, it’s important to consult a doctor for signs of injury, as some injuries don’t manifest symptoms until hours, days or even weeks after the accident.
