Dealing with the insurance company
We know how frustrating it can be for you to try to get a fair settlement out of an insurance company. The agent may employ various tactics designed to minimize your payout. Do not settle for less than you deserve. Our attorneys have your best interests at heart as we negotiate for your maximum possible compensation. You will find our staff helpful, compassionate and committed to your recovery.
We handle complex traffic injury cases
An important aspect of our successful auto accident settlements and verdicts is our high level of preparation. Our attorneys thoroughly investigate the events that led to your crash. We then develop a strategy tailored to the facts of your specific claim to recover for:
- A pedestrian accident if you were walking, running or biking when you were struck by a car
- A truck accident involving a large tractor-trailer, delivery van, construction equipment or other commercial vehicle
- A motorcycle accident in which you suffer such severe injuries as head trauma, spinal cord damage, fractures, lacerations and road rash
- A public transportation accident involving a train or bus in which you were a passenger
- A ridesharing accident or a taxi or limousine accident
- A self-driving vehicle accident
Fleeing the scene of an accident is against the law. This criminal act can also leave you with expensive medical and repair shop bills. However, you have options. A hit-and-run accident is treated like an uninsured motorist claim, so you can often file under your own policy. You may also have a third-party claim against another person or entity that contributed to the crash.
Take a step closer to recovery
New Jersey law generally imposes a two-year statute of limitations on auto collision cases. Therefore, you should consult with a lawyer as soon as you can. In addition, by being on board from the beginning, our lawyers are able to preserve important evidence and protect your rights. We invite you to read our motor vehicle accidents FAQs for general information and then call our office to schedule your free detailed analysis of your claim.
