Experienced Monmouth County Injury Lawyers Help Obtain Compensation For Car Crash Injuries

If you have been injured in a car crash, you should speak with our lawyers to discuss your legal rights. Injuries from car collisions can be severe, and can impact every aspect of a person’s life.  Every day responsibilities, such as your ability to work or take care of your family, can change drastically depending on the nature and extent of the injuries that you have suffered in a car crash.  In addition to losing income and loss of your transportation, your quality of life may change, because you can no longer enjoy the hobbies or activities you love.

Depending on many factors, you may be entitled to compensation for the injuries and economic harm that you have suffered.  New Jersey requires that all drivers carry car insurance.  In the event of a car collision, the other driver’s insurance company will often contact you. Usually, the company will record the conversation and attempt to learn facts about your injuries and how the collision occurred. The insurance company may also attempt to negotiate directly with you, sometimes offering a quick settlement for a pittance, in exchange for a permanent release of all claims.

We recommend that before you talk with the other driver’s insurance company, that you call a lawyer to understand your rights. The person who hurt you will have a team of lawyers and doctors working from the date of the accident to protect their own interests.  The auto injury lawyers at Shebell & Shebell will help you to deal with the insurance companies, and will investigate your case to see if you are eligible for compensation.

As Monmouth County car accident lawyers, we are focused on evaluating the needs of our clients, providing honest advice and guidance, and gathering the necessary evidence to prove your case.  Our job is to stand with you and your loved ones through the process of recovery, and to prepare your case for trial.  By thoroughly preparing your case for trial from the beginning, that we will be in the best position possible to obtain full and complete compensation for the damages you have been caused.

We believe that trials are what insurance companies are concerned about, because they cannot predict what will happen.  If an insurance company knows that the lawyer representing you is afraid to go to trial, then they will not attempt to settle your case for full and fair compensation.  We do not, ever, pressure you to settle your case, and will always to be ready to take your case to trial if the insurance company does not offer a settlement to fully and fairly compensate you for the harm that you have suffered.

At Shebell & Shebell, LLC, we will thoroughly investigate your case to determine the cause of the crash, to properly identify the party at fault, and will vigorously seek compensation on your behalf  against the party’s insurance company.

It is important that you follow all medically-reasonable recommendations of your doctors, and that you receive appropriate treatment as soon after the accident as possible, to prevent worsening of your injuries.  If you are dissatisfied with the doctors or therapists who are caring for you, then you may wish to consider a second opinion.

The Role of Jurors

There is a massive campaign by the insurance industry to impress the public with the need for reform that makes it more difficult for victims to recover when they are injured in lawsuits.   Insurance companies have done everything in their power to make the words “plaintiff’s trial lawyer” bad words in our country.

Our courts do not permit lawyers to discuss the influence of insurance companies during courtroom proceedings, despite the fact that insurance companies are driving many cases to trial by a refusal to pay damages for valid claims.

Jurors have been bombarded with grossly exaggerated and even deceitful claims from insurance and political lobby groups that encourage skepticism of every human being that files a lawsuit. Those same jurors are then asked to take on the difficult task of putting those feelings aside to decide a case fairly.

For jurors, although they do not hear the word insurance, the financial power of the industry has already shaped the law that they will hear as insurance company l0bbyists  have had a direct impact in the creation of those laws.  Judges, who are required to act as gatekeepers to prevent certain kinds of evidence from reaching the ears of the jury, are sworn to uphold those laws.

When a case reaches trial, jurors must be the heroes of your case. Our most important job as trial lawyers is to help jurors reach this goal by overcoming the prejudices and pressures that corporations have laid down through political lobbying, support for specific political candidates, multi-media advertising, and unfair positions taken in handling claims for victims of injuries.

We handle cases for the victims of serious injuries and death.  Only a Monmouth County Auto Injury Lawyer who has the experience and the desire to fight for you will be able to fully protect your rights.

Do not accept any settlement offer made to you by the other driver or their insurance company before speaking with a lawyer at Shebell & Shebell.  We are ready to help you with your claim, contact us today!

My hero, my attorney who is always there for me!

Tom Shebell has represented me and my family members in several cases. Tom is the most prepared lawyer I have ever seen, and demands respect in and outside of the court room. His staff is amazing and never makes you feel as if you are bothering them. I always feel that I am his most important client, and he always takes my call. If he is busy, I am reassured that he will get right back to me and he does. His knowledge of the law and research on your case is impecable, and will never give up until he gets the results that he feels are the best for you. Although he is the most professional attorney I have ever worked with, he refers you call him Tom (not Mr. Shebell), and I am most comfortable calling him Tommy. His cell phone is on his answering service, to comfort you and assuring you that you can reach him if necessary, no matter what. I will never retain another lawyer, unless it is a case that he cannot handle. That has never happened to me. Unfortunately, Tommy is handling a very emotional case for my family, and whenever we discuss it our meet together he is very comforting to us. For a family man, and extremely busy attorney to handle matters like this, it truly takes a special type of person, and extraordiinary human being. If anyone take my advise, Tom Shebell, III is the only attorney that should be called first, and believe me you will not make another call. As I said in my title, he is my true "hero"!

I am Grateful I was able to have Thomas Shebell for my Lawyer

Thomas Shebell and his staff were very good to work with. They were always professional, but also very down to earth and real. I always felt that my best interest was their main concern. I was always able to call with questions and concerns and was never made to wait or to feel like I was inconveniencing anyone. I always felt that they knew instantly who I was and what was going on with my case. In the end, Thomas was able to get the best possible settlement for me. I am very grateful to have been treated like my case truly mattered to them.

Ferocious Fighter

Tom Shebell and his firm came highly recommended by several reputable people in the community. I come from a family deeply rooted in law enforcement, so I greatly appreciate that Tom grew up with the law as well, hailing from a family of highly respected attorneys. He easily grasped the complexity of my case and eased my concerns, while ferociously fighting for me. One of the moments that stands out to me the most was when I voiced a concern over possible retaliation and he said, "they're going to have come through me first." I wholeheartedly believed him then and now. There is no one else I'd want in my corner than Tom Shebell.

A League Of His Own

Mere words cannot express my gratitude to Thomas F Shebell III. He took on a case, that other attorneys would shy away from and fought vehemently for my husband, myself and our daughter. His tenacity is only surpassed by his kindness and compassion for his clients well-being. I would recommend Mr. Shebell III to anyone who may need an attorney to guide them through a difficult time and see them through to a successful end. Many thanks again to him and his staff!!
