Do I Have to Report the Accident to the Police?
If the accident results in an injury or death or causes property damage that is more than $500, the driver must report the crash to the local police department. The driver should report the accident immediately. If the driver is incapacitated or unable to make the report, the passengers should make a report on their behalf. In cases where there is not a passenger, the driver should make a report as soon as they are able.
Should I Go to the Hospital After the Accident?
You should seek medical treatment immediately after being involved in an accident. Even if you do not seem to have any severe injuries, it is best to be evaluated by a medical professional. If your injuries are internal or you are in shock, you will likely not realize how much serious your condition is.
How Much You Can Expect from a Car Accident Settlement?
How large your settlement offer is will depend on your:
- Damages, such as your medical expenses, lost wages, loss of consortium, pain and suffering, and property damage.
- Liability, as New Jersey has comparative negligence laws, your damages can be reduced if you are partially at fault for the accident.
Is There a Time Limit for Filing a Car Accident Lawsuit in New Jersey?
Yes, there is a statute of limitations (or a time limit) concerning how long victims have to bring a claim forward. In New Jersey, claimants have two years to file a personal injury claim in most cases. However, if the victim was a minor when the accident occurred, they may be able to file a claim until they turn 20 years old. In cases that involve the State of New Jersey, a county, or its employees, New Jersey Tort Claim laws will apply, which means that a special notice must be filed within 90 days of the accident.
If you are involved in a car accident, you should consult with an attorney as soon as possible. The sooner you contact a reliable attorney, the sooner they can advise you concerning your case. They have a firm grasp of the laws governing your case and can help you meet the necessary case deadlines.
Do Most NJ Automobile Accidents Go to Trial?
Most car accident claims can be settled before trial. However, whether litigation is required largely depends on your case specifics.
Do I Need an Attorney if I Have Been Offered a Settlement?
The insurance company and its representative adjusters do not have your best interest in mind nor do they represent you. When they calculate your damages and make an initial offer, they are trying to settle the case as quickly as possible for the lowest amount possible, which often means they offer you a lowball settlement. Before accepting any offers, you should retain our attorneys as we are skilled in the art of negotiation and have experience calculating damages.
