Weehawken Car Accident Lawyer
Hire an Experienced and Professional Car Accident Lawyer in Weehawken
The township of Weehawken is located in Hudson County, New Jersey. It has a total population of approximately 12,554 people, according to a U.S. Census from 2010. The Hudson River is very close to the township. In fact, if you were in Midtown Manhattan, you could see Weehawken from across the river. The Lincoln Tunnel connects the two sides of the river. You can simply drive through the underwater tunnel to access each side.
Since Weehawken receives a lot of direct traffic from the Lincoln Tunnel, it increases the chance of an accident happening in the township. You need to be prepared for when a car accident occurs because it can happen to anybody. Even if you obey the traffic laws and do everything correctly behind the wheel, there is always the chance of someone else not doing everything correctly. That could result in you or a family member getting injured or killed.
The aftermath of a severe car accident is emotionally, physically, and financially exhausting. You may have to worry about injuries, mental trauma, and several different expenses. Do not deal with these issues on your own because it’ll be too much for you to handle. You need to find a car accident lawyer in Weehawken who’ll handle the financial and legal side of things. Then you can concentrate on your recovery while we focus on getting you the settlement and/or compensatory damages that you deserve.
Deadly Car Accidents and Claims
Fatal car accidents are not as common in Weehawken, but they do happen on occasion. If your family member was killed in a car accident, you would be left with a lot of expenses because of their premature death. We know it is difficult to focus on financial matters when you’re still grieving over your loss. That is why you should allow Bhatt Law Group to worry about those financial matters for you.
Our team of lawyers are qualified to handle fatal car accident cases. If your sibling, child, parent, or spouse was killed in a car accident because of another driver’s reckless behavior behind the wheel, then you may seek compensatory damages by filing a wrongful death lawsuit against them.
You may seek compensation for the following:
- Medical expenses prior to their death
- Funeral & burial expenses
- Inheritance loss
- Love and companionship loss
- Loss of the financial contributions made by the deceased family member
- Loss of services made by the deceased family member
- Emotional pain and suffering
If the other driver is found to be over 50% at-fault for the accident, then you have the right to seek the maximum amount of compensatory damages possible for the loss of your loved one and the expenses you incurred from that loss. Bhatt Law Group has fatal car accident lawyers who have a history of winning cases for the family members of deceased victims. Contact us at (201) 798-8000 and let us help you seek civil justice for your loss too.
Car Accident Injuries and Claims
Fortunately, most car accidents do not result in fatalities. The bad news is that minor to severe injuries are a lot more common. Some people may walk away from an accident with injuries that affect them on a short-term basis. Others may be affected for several years or for the rest of their lives.
When you suffer any kind of car accident injury that puts you in the hospital, then you need to seek legal representation as soon as you’re well enough to use the phone. Your first call should be to Bhatt Law Group at (201) 798-8000. We’ll prepare to file a personal injury claim on your behalf with your insurance company. Your personal injury coverage should pay for the medical expenses of the following injuries:
- Psychological anguish
- Paralysis, nerve damage, and other spinal cord injuries
- Brain damage
- Broken bones
- Soft tissue damage, sprains, or strains
- Neck injuries
- Lacerations (deep cuts)
In addition to your medical expenses, your personal injury protection may also cover these other related expenses on a limited basis:
- Lost consortium
- Lost salary and wages
- Limited to no earning capacity
- Disability and rehabilitation
Your personal injury protection probably won’t cover all your expenses if it was a serious accident. However, you’re still required to seek compensation from your insurance company before you attempt to seek compensation from the at-fault driver. This is a rule set forth by the state government of New Jersey. If you need additional compensation, then you can proceed to seek a settlement from the at-fault driver’s insurance company or from the at-fault driver directly.
What to Do Following a Car Accident
The three biggest steps you need to take after a car accident are to seek medical treatment, call the police, and gather information from the other drivers and witnesses. Most of these things will probably be done for you, depending on the severity of the accident. All you need to remember is to call 9-1-1 if you’re able to do so after the accident. If not, then someone else nearby will likely report it for you.
Law enforcement will always dispatch an ambulance to come to the scene of a car accident. You’ll have a choice whether you want to go to the hospital or not. Unless you feel completely fine, you should choose to go to the hospital. That is the only way you’ll know if you suffered some internal damage, such as a concussion.
Furthermore, the hospital will create a medical report based on their evaluation of your injuries. The medical report will come in handy when you attempt to seek compensation from your insurance company and the at-fault driver. You’ll also want to provide a police report and written eyewitness testimony to the insurance company as well.
