What should I do after a car accident in NJ?
The hard truth is that no matter how many precautions you take when driving, you can still be involved in a car accident. Far too many drivers fail to obey traffic laws. Many drivers are involved in accidents and injured due to no fault of their own.
The two most common questions that are asked after any motor vehicle accident are “What should I do after a car accident?”, And if injured, “Do I have a personal injury claim?”. However, whether you are at fault or not, you will need an experienced and skilled attorney to represent your interests going forward.
First and foremost it is important to deploy an experienced attorney as your representative to insurance companies and your counsel with each critical decision you face early on in the process. Your attorney should begin collecting evidence and assembling a case in an effort to clearly and adequately prove liability and determine a full and fair compensation that you should be compensated for your injuries. If necessary, your attorney should be a skilled negotiator and take on the insurance companies on your behalf in order to protect your rights, your family, and your future.
