New Jersey Motor Vehicle Accident Attorneys Protect Victims’ Rights

Helping car crash victims recover damages since 1976

Seigel Law was founded in 1976 for the exclusive purpose of helping our clients recover compensation in courts throughout Ridgewood, Hackensack, Fair Lawn, Teaneck, Garfield, Fort Lee, Newark, Jersey City, Paterson, Elizabeth and Clifton. Our premier New Jersey firm has the extensive resources and focused experience to effectively assist you in reaching justice in the most challenging catastrophic injury claims.

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

Hit-and-run accidents

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.

Consult with our experienced lawyers about your auto accident claim

Seigel Law focuses on one thing — your personal injury recovery. Call our firm at 201.444.4000 or contact us online to schedule a free consultation at our Ridgewood office, serving clients in the Passaic, Bergen, Essex and Hudson County regions, and throughout northern New Jersey. We visit you in your home or at the hospital if your injuries prevent you from coming to our office. You owe us no lawyer fees unless you win compensation.

    After the misfortune of suffering an injury, I had the good fortune to choose Seigel Law to represent me. During my initial meeting with Jan Seigel, I found him to be extremely confident and reassuring---he totally put me at ease. I was represented by Mark Mc Bratney---an EXCELLENT attorney. He was supportive and professional through the entire process, and provided an excellent outcome for my case.
