New Jersey Car Accident Attorneys
Helping Auto Accident Victims Fight for Justice and Compensation
Having to deal with damage to your vehicle as a result of a car accident is bad enough, but to have to add dealing with pain and injuries to your worries is a lot to handle. Lost wages from missing work, dealing with car insurance companies, and medical bills are just a few things that stem from a car accident. Fortunately, our NJ car accident lawyers are on your side. We fight for the rights of individuals injured in auto accidents and work in gaining the compensation they deserve for their injuries.
Insurance companies can be held responsible for the following parts of a car accident claim:
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering

What is Pain and Suffering?
Hard costs such as property damage, lost wages, and medical bills are fairly simple to add up, but car accidents can cause pain and suffering other than physical injuries. Emotional distress is a common result of car accidents but it's difficult to put a monetary value on it.
Examples of pain and suffering include:
- anxiety and depression
- insomnia and/or nightmares
- emotional distress such as guilt, frustration, bitterness, and fear
- memory loss
- physical pain, discomfort, and scarring
- loss of consortium
Our law firm can help you navigate all of the issues you will have with your own insurance company under your No-Fault benefits and will also negotiate a settlement with the insurance company for the other driver involved in the accident. We will help ensure that you receive all of the No-Fault personal injury protection (“PIP”) benefits that you are entitled to, along with helping you receive your collision, comprehensive, and property damage benefits.
Do Not Wait to Hire a NJ Car Accident Attorney
If you have been injured in a car accident, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. In most cases, New Jersey carries a two-year statute of limitations on claims, but there are some exceptions that may require you to file an accident claim within 90 days. The best strategy is to hire an attorney as soon as possible. Our New Jersey car accident lawyers can advise you about the limitations in your unique case.
Do Not Take the First Deal, Let Your Attorney Help You Decide
You should never accept the first offer made on your claim from the insurance company. It is important to keep in mind that any compensation will have to cover all lost wages and medical bills, not just current losses. It is the goal of the insurance companies to pay the bare minimum on claims made against them because they are only looking out for themselves. You should not settle for less than you are entitled to; our car accident attorneys in New Jersey can assist you with your case with a goal of getting you the money are owed.
If you have been injured in an auto accident, our lawyers will help manage your accident claim to ensure that all of your medical bills have been paid by the appropriate insurance company. More importantly, we will gather all of the pertinent medical records and put together a comprehensive settlement package to forward to the insurance company for the other vehicle to try and obtain a settlement to compensate you for both your wage loss and pain and suffering claims. If your accident involves an uninsured driver, our New Jersey auto accident lawyers also have expertise in handling all aspects of your uninsured motorist (“UM”) claim along with your underinsured motorist (“UIM”) claim if the insurance policy limits on the other vehicle are not sufficient to compensate you for your injuries.
