The town of Guttenberg has a population of approximately 11,176 people, according to the 2010 U.S. Census. No other incorporated American municipality is more densely populated than Guttenberg. Despite this, the entire width of the town is only 4 blocks. For every square mile of land, there are 57,116 people.

Whenever you have more people in a densely populated location, it is going to increase the rate of car accidents in that area. Guttenberg has to contend with car accidents on a daily basis. Sometimes these are car accidents that result in minor injuries while other times they are car accidents that result in more serious injuries.

If you or a family member has been harmed by a car accident in any possible way, then you should contact the car accident lawyers of Bhatt Law Group. We represent clients throughout the Guttenberg area and beyond in all types of car accident cases. Just call us at (201) 798-8000 to learn more about the compensatory process following a car accident.

The Steps to Take After Experiencing a Car Accident

A car accident is a very serious situation. It might be hard to think straight afterwards because of the worry, stress, and anxiety that you’ll probably experience from the incident. But it is important that you remember a few basic steps to take after the car accident, assuming that you’re physically able to perform them. If you’re not able to perform them because of the severe nature of the accident, then the police will likely perform them for you.

Here are the key steps to take:

1) Call the Police

The police must be contacted after a car accident. Even if nobody was injured and it is not an emergency situation, you should still contact the police anyway. Just call the local law enforcement phone number rather than the 9-1-1 emergency number in this circumstance. Notify the police about the location of the accident so that they can send a few officers to the scene to write up a report.

2) Seek Medical Assistance

If you or any of your passengers have experienced an injury that goes beyond a minor bruise or bump, then you should seek medical attention immediately. This would be a situation where calling 9-1-1 would be warranted. They’ll send an ambulance and police officers to the scene to assist you.

3) Gather Information

If you’re not incapacitated because of your injuries, then ask the driver of the other car to provide their insurance information and contact information. Ask for the contact information of the witnesses as well, if any.

When you hire the Guttenberg car accident lawyers of Bhatt Law Firm to represent you, we can build a stronger case if there is more documentation related to the accident and the extent of your injuries.

Common Reasons for Car Accidents in Guttenberg

Car accidents may happen for any number of reasons. They are usually caused by a mistake that one of the drivers makes, but it is possible for external circumstances to cause car accidents too. You could have bad weather conditions outside or a large animal that runs into the road unexpectedly. However, in Guttenberg, car accidents normally occur because of the following reasons:

  • Drunk Driving
  • Distraction
  • Speeding
  • Reckless or Aggressive Driving
  • Driving on a Street the Wrong Way
  • Not Giving the Right of Way to Another Driver

The main cause of the car accident is what determines the liability in which the guilty driver(s) face. Sometimes that liability is split between both drivers, while other times it falls upon one specific driver.

When you come to Bhatt Law Group to seek legal help with your personal injury case, the first thing we’ll want to do is review the details of your car accident and determine which driver is more at fault. If the other driver is found more at fault, then our car accident lawyers will make sure you get compensated immensely for your injuries.

Common Types of Car Accident Injuries

All types of car accident injuries should be taken seriously. An injury that seems minor could turn into something much worse, especially if there are unforeseen mental or psychological consequences that are discovered later. The level of compensation you may seek will depend on the severity of your injuries.

Here the most common injuries from car accidents that we see our clients experience in Guttenberg:

  • Broken Bones
  • Deep Cuts and Lacerations
  • Muscle Strains
  • Whiplash / Neck Injuries
  • Brain Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Psychological Trauma

Have you or a close family member incurred any of these types of injuries? If so, then you should contact Bhatt Law Group immediately and request an appointment with one of our expert car accident lawyers. We can take on any type of car accident case in Guttenberg, whether it’s a fender bender or rollover accident.

Compensation to Expect

Car accident injuries affect victims in more than one way. The injuries don’t just affect them in the present but also the future as well. You can seek compensation for future expenses and hardships incurred as a result of the accident.

Here are some of the damages you can seek compensation for:

  • Disfigurement
  • Disability
  • Inability to Earn Wages
  • Lost Income
  • Medical Expenses
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Property Damages
  • Consortium Loss
  • Mental Anguish

You or a close family member may have experienced one or more of these damages from a car accident injury. New Jersey law allows car accident victims to seem compensatory damages for their financial, physical, and psychological damages. If the at-fault driver acted recklessly behind the wheel, then you may even be able to seek punitive damages too. Although that is not common in New Jersey, it can happen under extreme circumstances.

Contact Bhatt Law Group

If you wish to seek compensation for your car accident injuries, New Jersey law requires you to file a civil case within two years from the time when the accident occurred. Unless you’re in a state of unconsciousness for a long period of time, two years should be more than enough time to seek compensation. Contact Bhatt Law Group as soon as you’re able to use the telephone after you’ve been treated at the hospital. We look forward to overseeing your case and fighting for the most compensation possible on your behalf.

Alright! These guys are amazing. I was devastated when I got a three tickets in New Jersey with 12 points in total and fines adding up over $1K. The officer was truly rude, unfair and just took out his bad day on me. At this point I had no idea what to do but I must find some legal help to fight this in court. After getting the tickets, I called a bunch of different law groups trying to see who can help me with this. I was able to talk to many of them and mostly all of them seemed like they wanted to see how much they can get out of me before even hearing out what my concerns where. Then I got around to calling Bhatt Law Group and I was welcome by this lady (whose name I don't know) and she was amazing. She listened and helped me be calm and gave me assurance I am in good hands. She offer pricing and it seemed very reasonable too. I made my payment and then I didn't have anything to worry about till the day of the virtual court. They figured out all my court dates and managed everything on the back end. They would give me updates on what the process is up to. Funny story, on the day of my virtual court session I overslept thinking my court time was at 11 am instead of 9 am and I had my attorney Devin Baer even giving me a call to get me out of bed to attend the zoom. I don't know how many attorneys would do that for their client. Devin was very helpful, professional and understanding. He gave me a call prior to my court session and gave important pointers and even through out the court session he made me feel confident and assure that everything will be okay. So these guys were friendly, helpful and professional but where there any results? OH YEAH! I was able to lower my fines and points to barely nothing. These guys are life savers and will help you legally in any situation where you have been treated unfairly. Thank you Bhatt Law.
