What to do if you’re involved in a car accident in Newark
Your first step after a car accident should be to make sure the scene is safe. Then, call 911 and wait for the Newark Police or the New Jersey State Police to arrive. The official police accident report will become a key part of your case.
Exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver(s) involved and get contact information from any witnesses. However, you need to keep your comments to anyone at the scene (including the investigating officer) brief, sticking to the facts of what happened. Don’t say anything pertaining to fault for the accident, and don’t apologize.
Get medical attention right away, even if you feel okay. See your primary care provider or go to an emergency room or urgent care center. This is the best option for both your health and your legal rights. Seeing a doctor creates documentation of your injuries in case the insurance company later disputes your claim.
You do need to promptly notify your insurance company that you were involved in an accident; otherwise, they may deny your claim. However, keep your comments brief and answer their questions as succinctly as possible. Don’t volunteer any information.
Then, contact us as soon as possible. The sooner you talk to a lawyer, the better the position you will be in to pursue full compensation for your injuries.
We can guide you forward after a car crash
The key to winning a car accident case is a thorough investigation. If you hire Shebell & Shebell to handle your case, we’ll start by launching a full investigation to find out why the accident happened and who was responsible for your injuries. Usually, that’s another driver, but it could also be a third party such as a vehicle manufacturer. Based on the evidence we find, we’ll build a legal strategy and negotiate with the insurance company for maximum compensation on your behalf.
The insurance companies know our reputation and track record. Usually, that means they’ll offer a fair settlement. When they don’t, we don’t hesitate to take them to trial and fight for you before a judge and jury. Our goal is simple: to get full compensation and accountability for each client.
Throughout this process, we’ll handle the day-to-day with the insurance company while you focus on getting better. It can be an uphill battle, but you’re not in it alone. You have experience and resources on your side.
