New Jersey Injury Attorneys
New Jersey Car Accident AttorneysNo one plans to be injured in an accident, but it is a sad fact that New Jersey car accidents occur all too frequently. There are more than 200,000 motor vehicle crashes every year in New Jersey alone. More than 20% of these crashes result in personal injury.
Sometimes, the results are even more devastating. According to data compiled in the Fatal Motor Vehicle Crash Comparative Data Report by the New Jersey State Police, there were 530 fatal motor vehicle collisions resulting in 556 fatalities in just 2010. That is an average of 1.5 lives lost every single day. In fact, motor vehicle related fatalities are ranked as the leading cause of accidental deaths not just in New Jersey, but for the entire Nation.
There are a variety of factors that contribute to these auto accidents. Some of these factors include aggressive drivers, speeding, and driving while intoxicated. Other causes are due to the fact that some drivers are simply careless and fail to pay proper attention to the road and traffic condition. Texting while driving is also a significant cause of crashes that resulted from driver inattention or distracted driving.
Consequences of Car Accidents
What ever the cause of the crash or the statistics surrounding the event, the person injured in the accident or the family of a loved one killed only know the hardship and suffering they are forced to endure. This is obviously a very trying and difficult time. The injured party may be facing medical and surgical procedures. He or she will also be confronted with medical expenses, lost wages and other burdens.
To compound these personal hardships, insurances companies for the other side will attempt to contact you to get you to answer questions or provide them with a written or recorded statement. The No-fault carrier will also be contacting you and sending you a slew of claims forms that will be required. During this time you may have many questions that need to be answered and need to turn to someone.
What to do when you are Involved in a Car Accident?
Although this is a very difficult time, it is extremely important to seek legal advice as soon as possible. There are many reasons to do so. First, it is critical that an early and timely investigation be conducted to determine the cause of the accident while evidence is still available and the memories of any witnesses are fresh. This will help determine who responsible parties may be so they all can be held accountable.
Secondly, the law can be very unforgiving. There are many time sensitive filing requirements that must be meet in order to preserve your rights and your claim. These deadline may be as short as 90 days from the happening of the accident. Should a critical deadline pass, you may forever lose your rights to bring a claim or recover certain benefits that you may have been otherwise entitled to receive.
Lastly, the insurance companies are not on your side during this time. It is their job to defeat you claim for damages and deny your claim for benefits as soon as reasonably possible. You should never speak to a representative from an insurance carrier until you have first consulted with a personal injury attorney. This is the best way to protect your rights and interests.
