Why do We Need Accident Lawyers?
Accident lawyers are needed to hold those at fault accountable in claims, so you can get the compensation you need for medical expenses, lost wages, and more.
Car crashes, slips and falls, or other types of accidents can leave you suffering serious personal injuries. With little experience in these situations, victims often fail to realize the long term impact of their injuries. Meanwhile, proving liability can be problematic. Insurance companies are often more concerned about maintaining profits than paying out claims. This is where an experienced New Jersey accident lawyer can help. We defend your rights and protect your best interests in accident claims, helping to ensure you get the maximum amount of compensation you need to recover.
The High Costs of Accidental Injuries
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 30 million people suffer accidental injuries each year. Motor vehicle accidents involving drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists are common, as are slips, trips, and falls, getting struck by or against objects, and sports or recreational injuries.
The CDC reports that the total costs associated with accidental injuries is close to $500 billion dollars annually. Even a seemingly minor accident can leave you facing thousands of dollars in damages. Common expenses include:
- Medical costs, which may include diagnostic testing, treatments, follow up visits, medications, medical devices, and physical therapy you need now and in the years to come;
- Lost wages, which include future losses in income you suffer due to long term disabilities;
- Property damages and household expenses, such as home modifications and having to pay someone to perform tasks you are no longer able to do on your own.
In additional to these tangible expenses, there are other costs that can be difficult to assign a dollar amount. This includes the pain and mental anguish you suffer due to the accident and loss of enjoyment in life caused by not being able to engage in your usual hobbies and activities
Getting the Compensation You Need to Recover
Depending on how your accident occurred, an insurance policy may be in place to help offset your costs. However, these companies tend to put profits over policyholders. According to the American Association for Justice, some of the most widely recognizable names in the industry are guilty of unfair practices and typically attempt to either deny, delay, or downplay your claim.
Having an experienced New Jersey accident attorney on your side can prevent this from happening. At Lomurro Law, we are familiar with the practices insurers often engage in and have extensive experience in insurance negotiations. In the event an insurance policy is not in place or a settlement cannot be reached, we can advise you on your rights in seeking compensation through a personal injury claim.
