You may do everything you can to make sure that you and your family are safe on our New Jersey roads, but sometimes car accidents are unavoidable and so are the injuries that come with them. Our car accident attorneys have seen enough car accidents to know that serious and devastating injuries can result from car accidents caused by negligent or reckless drivers. If you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident caused by someone else, you deserve to be compensated for your injuries and damages.
Do you need an attorney?
Sometimes people ask us if they really need a car accident attorney, especially when liability is clear. Our answer is yes, even when liability is clear, it is important to have an attorney for several reasons.
- Insurance companies – When liability is clearly on the other driver, his or her insurance company may try to minimize the settlement amount. They will do this by trying to pin at least some of the liability on you and they may argue that your injuries and damages are worth less than they actually are. When you have an attorney involved, especially one who is not afraid to go to trial if you do not receive a fair settlement offer, insurance companies will likely be more reasonable and fair in their negotiations.
- Value your claim – An attorney will be able to look at the extent of your injuries (both short and long term), your out of pocket losses, how you and your family were affected, and if necessary, hire experts to help value your claim in order to come up with a number that will fully and fairly compensate you.
- Determining and proving liability – During a car accident investigation, an attorney will look into many things such as police reports, witness statements, weather conditions, property damage, and any additional evidence. When necessary, an attorney will hire accident experts that will help to support your claim.
- Help you secure larger settlement or award – By helping to negotiate with an insurance company, appropriately valuing your claim, and proving liability, hiring an attorney will generally afford you a larger settlement or trial award for your claim. Our Cherry Hill car accident attorneys have tried and settled many car accident cases. Our experience and expertise allows us to help maximize your recovery by exploring all of the available remedies and recovery options. We will make sure all liable parties are involved and that we exercise all options available.
