Dedicated Auto Accident Attorneys in Lakewood, New Jersey
Meeting Location By Appointment Only. Call 1-800-537-4154 For Your Consultation.
While Lakewood may appear to be a quiet Ocean County community, tragedy can strike you or your loved ones in an instant if other motorists fail to exercise care and caution while driving. A motor vehicle crash can leave you or your loved one with serious, life-threatening injuries that can require thousands of dollars’ worth of medical treatment in order to correct. Not only this, but you may need to miss days, weeks, or even months of work while you recover. This can not only strain your family’s finances, but also jeopardize your health and prolong your recovery.
Common Misconceptions About Lakewood Auto Accidents
If you are like many Lakewood residents, your knowledge of the lawsuit process following a car wreck comes from the anecdotes of friends and family members, television shows, and other similar sources. This can lead to misconceptions such as:
Let Aretsky Law Group, P.C. Guide You Through the Car Accident Claims Process
- I can’t recover any compensation if I did something wrong. In fact, New Jersey is one of several states which allow injury victims who are partially at fault in causing a wreck to bring suit against another, at-fault party. So long as the injury victim filing a lawsuit is not the primary cause of the accident, he or she will usually be permitted to file his or her suit (the amount of compensation to which he or she is entitled may be reduced, however).
- New Jersey is a “no-fault” state, so I can’t file a car wreck lawsuit. While New Jersey is considered a “no-fault” insurance state and therefore in some cases each person’s insurance company pays for his or her own losses, crashes that result in a victim sustaining certain catastrophic injuries (or that kill a victim) are typically not covered by the “no-fault” laws. Instead, in these situations victims and/or their surviving family members may be able to bring an auto crash lawsuit.
- I can file my own claim for compensation. New Jersey law does not require Lakewood car collision injury victims to retain legal counsel, but doing so can be quite helpful in positively resolving your claim in a timely manner.
