Steps to Take After a Car Accident
If you are involved in a car accident and are injured or think you may be injured, seek medical attention immediately. Injuries can also occur days, weeks, or even months later. Some common injuries may include spinal injuries, neurological injuries, orthopedic injuries, or neck and back injuries.
The next thing you should do is report the accident to your auto insurance company.
Be prepared for insurance claims adjusters. They may try to talk you out of seeing a car accident attorney. They work for the insurance company whose primary goal is to pay out as little money as possible and as fast as possible. This often happens when your injuries are more serious than you realized.
You don’t have to handle the insurance companies on your own. By being in your corner, we provide the guidance and advocacy you will need to recover the full compensation you are entitled to from the insurance companies.
An Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist Hit Me – Now What?
It is illegal to drive without auto insurance in the state of New Jersey. Unfortunately, many drivers still drive without insurance. Thankfully, there is a way to protect yourself should you get in an accident with an uninsured driver.
You can purchase additional coverage on your own auto insurance policy to cover you in these instances. The most common types include uninsured motorist (UM) coverage and underinsured motorist (UIM) coverage. Both are optional and can be added to your policy at any time. However, they cannot be added to your policy after you have already been in an accident.
Here’s a scenario where additional coverage may be beneficial:
If you get hit by an uninsured driver or a driver who doesn’t have enough insurance coverage to cover your injuries, you can still recover fair compensation from the additional coverage your purchased.
