car accident case lawyer

If you were hurt in a car crash and you want to pursue compensation, we suggest hiring a Monmouth County car accident lawyer. One of our experienced personal injury attorneys can do a lot to help you build a stronger car accident case. If you’re serious about securing the kind of settlement that you deserve and holding a negligent driver accountable for their actions, you should learn a bit more about what our firm can do to assist you.

What Can Lawyers Do in a Car Accident Case?

Your lawyer is ready to strengthen your car accident case in any way that they can. They can:

  • Gather evidence
  • Talk to witnesses
  • Calculate fair compensation
  • Handle all communications with lawyers and insurance companies for you
  • Answer your questions about the legal process
  • Prepare you to testify
  • Remind you of important dates and deadlines
  • Introduce you to expert witnesses who can bolster your claims
  • Build a case that can win in court

Will My Lawyer Negotiate With Insurers in a Car Accident Case?

One of the big benefits of hiring a lawyer is that you’ll have someone who is accustomed to negotiating with insurance companies on your side. Insurers try to get out of accidents like this for as little money as possible. That’s why we usually advise people not to take the first settlement they are offered.

Your attorney will negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf and fight for a fair and reasonable compensation offer. They can also defend you from accusations of wrongdoing or fault. If you are found to be partly at fault for the accident, you can have your awarded damages reduced. For example, if you are 20% responsible and get $100,000 in damages, you’ll lose 20% and end up with $80,000. Your lawyer will defend you and show how another driver was to blame.

How Long Do I Have to Sue After a Crash?

New Jersey gives you two years to sue for damages after an accident. File a car accident case after that point and it’s likely to get thrown out. We recommend acting as quickly as possible so that you do not miss your chance to pursue compensation.

What Kinds of Damages Can I Win in a Car Accident Case?

Your compensation should help cover the economic costs of the accident while making up for the psychological trauma you experienced as a result of the crash. In a car accident case your lawyer will fight for damages relating to:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Loss of enjoyment
  • Mental anguish
  • Pain from disability or disfigurement
  • Any other pain and suffering
