Damages Recoverable In Hackensack Car Accident Claim

When a car accident happens, someone is ordinary to blame. Regardless of whether or not the at-fault party was driving a vehicle that hit your car, or was the driver in a vehicle in which you were a passenger, you may be entitled to recover a substantial amount of compensation for your injuries and losses.

Even if the accident was partly your fault, you may still recover compensation. New Jersey follows the concept of “Modified” Comparative Negligence in certain personal injury cases. Under New Jersey law, this means that if a jury finds that you were not more than 50% responsible for the accident in which you were injured, you can still be awarded damages.

But in order to have a valid car accident claim, you must be able to prove that:
  • The at-fault driver acted negligently and that it was, in fact, his or her negligence that caused or contributed to the accident in which you were injured.
  • You have some provable damages. If you don’t have damages, you do not have a claim. No matter how upset or traumatized you were, how negligently the at-fault driver was driving, or how many traffic citations they received, without provable injuries or damage to your property, you have no claim.
Damages recoverable in a Hackensack car accident claim may include:
  • Medical expense
  • Out of pocket expenses
  • Lost wages and income
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of consortium

What to do After You’ve Been Involved in a Car Accident

1. Call 911

If you are injured in a car accident, the first thing you should do is call 911. If you are injured badly somebody else should call for you.

The police report and documentation from the emergency medical service (EMS) will be essential to your car accident claim. The EMS report will contain information regarding your injuries and the medical treatment you received at the scene of the accident. And If necessary, EMS will transport you to a hospital where medical personnel will further document your condition.

A police report will include information about the at-fault drivers’ negligent or reckless driving, as well as, any tickets that were issued, witness information, the weather conditions, diagrams of the accident, insurance details, and more.

Do not allow the other driver to convince you not to call the police. Make sure to call the police if anyone has been injured or if anyone’s property has been damaged. Don’t make any agreement with the other driver if it means that you won’t be making a police report. If you intend on filing a car accident claim, a police report will be extremely helpful.

2. Gather Additional Information

EMS and the police will only include certain details in their reports, so you need to gather additional information that will assist you and your lawyers in pursuing your claim or negotiating a fair settlement, such as:

  • The names, addresses, and telephone numbers of all drivers involved.
  • The name of the other driver’s insurance company, its phone number, and his or her policy number.
  • The names and contacts for anyone who may have witnessed the accident.
  • Any other observations you may have pertaining to the accident––road conditions, visibility, distractions, etc.

In addition, you should photograph or videotape the scene of the accident, any injuries you have, and whatever damage the vehicles sustained. If you are seriously injured, have someone else do this for you.

3. Continue Being Treated and Documenting Your Injuries

If you were seriously injured in the car accident, you will probably have to see the doctor for the next several days or weeks following the accident. Accept as much medical treatment and therapy as the doctor orders. But, always get referrals to any specialist you visit to treat particular injuries. For a strong car accident claim, you must have credible medical documentation.

4. Contact An Experienced Car Accident Lawyer

Finally, contact a car accident attorney immediately for a free consultation. Car accidents are often devastating and confusing for someone who has been seriously injured. So, you should allow an experienced attorney to handle the medical and legal matter involved.

Why call a car accident attorney immediately? One mistake may adversely affect your right to be fully compensated by the insurance companies and the parties responsible for your injuries and losses. The right attorney is also familiar with all the insurance regulations, knows all of the individual nuances of the various insurance companies and can navigate you through a difficult and confusing period of your life.

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.
