It Was Not Your Fault – New Jersey’s Fault System
Even people who may be partially at fault can be compensated. People initially fear that they were at fault for their car accidents. The assumption of blame prevents some people from pursuing the compensation to which they are entitled.
New Jersey is a modified comparative fault state, so a person can recover damages as long as they were not more than 50 percent at fault for the crash. Your share of negligence can impact the amount of compensation you receive. For example, a person who is awarded $100,000 in a car accident case but is found to be 25 percent at fault will have their damages reduced by $25,000. He or she will receive $75,000.
An insurance company may try to claim that you were to blame for something that was not your fault or beyond your control. In some cases, they may question the severity of your injuries.
Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C. knows how to obtain the evidence necessary to help victims recover compensation following car accidents. Our firm can work to make sure that an insurance company does not use deceptive tactics to dodge liability.
How Our Attorneys Can Help Car Accident Victims in Hopewell Township
After your car accident, you will likely be contacted by the negligent driver’s insurance company. Avoid giving any recorded statement to the insurer that may be used against you later.
Insurance representatives often seem concerned and express a willingness to make sure you are taken care of. Do not be fooled. In most cases, the adjuster wants the victim to speak openly about the accident, which includes answering questions that are specifically designed to get victims unknowingly to admit to contributing to the accident.
In some cases, the insurance company may aggressively try to get you to accept a lump sum settlement. The agent may tell you that doing so will allow you to keep more money for yourself because you will not have to pay an attorney.
You are right to wonder if the amount you are being offered reflects the appropriate settlement. In most cases, insurance companies offer settlements that are a fraction of the fair value of the claim. That is why it helps to have an experienced car accident injury attorney advocating for you.
Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C. can step in immediately and deal with an insurance company on your behalf. We also can conduct an independent investigation of the crash to determine what really happened and who can be held liable.
Our firm will account for all the costs involved in your medical care including ongoing expenses. We will be guided by trying to recover the amount you need for all past, present, and future expenses.
