What Can an Attorney Do for You?
It can be difficult to go up against an auto insurance company in pursuit of fair financial compensation for your medical bills and other losses after a pedestrian accident in New Jersey. Although the insurance company representative may seem friendly, his or her main goal is to save the company money by devaluing your claim. The best way to level the playing field is by hiring a personal injury attorney to represent you.
You will have the time, energy and peace of mind to focus on healing from your significant injuries with an attorney handling communication with the insurance company for you. You can also rest assured that the results achieved by your attorney are the best possible outcome, as your lawyer is motivated to optimize your payout. Your lawyer can investigate the pedestrian collision, preserve evidence, hire experts to testify and take many other steps to build a compelling claim on your behalf.
Is Someone Responsible for Your Pedestrian Accident?
Pursuing financial compensation for a pedestrian collision in New Jersey requires navigating the state’s no-fault insurance law. This law states that regardless of fault for a collision, all injured parties must seek financial reimbursement from their own car insurance companies. This contrasts with fault insurance states, where the person or party at fault for a collision is responsible for paying.
There is an exception to New Jersey’s no-fault law, however, for serious injuries or wrongful death. In these situations, injured victims can bring claims outside of the no-fault system and hold someone else accountable. A victim may also have grounds for a lawsuit if he or she has “unlimited right to sue” insurance. The tradeoff, however, is that the victim must prove the defendant’s negligence – the failure to use an appropriate level of care.
The most common defendants in pedestrian accident cases in New Jersey are motor vehicle drivers. Drivers can cause pedestrian collisions through preventable errors such as texting and driving, drowsy driving, driving under the influence, red-light running, failing to yield the right-of-way, speeding, and making unsafe passes. All drivers in New Jersey must carry liability insurance to pay for damages if they cause serious accidents.
What to Look for in Your Kearny Pedestrian Accident Attorney
Not all pedestrian accident lawyers are created equal. It is important to take the time to research your options and schedule free consultations with a few top choices before selecting your attorney. The right lawyer to handle your case will have prior experience with other pedestrian accident cases, as well as positive case results. Your lawyer should be honest and forthright when answering your questions, including telling you who will be handling your case (this should be an attorney, not a paralegal or associate) and how the law firm charges attorney’s fees.
At Brady, Brady & Reilly, LLC, we operate on a contingency fee basis. This means you won’t pay for your attorney out of pocket, win or lose. If we succeed in obtaining a settlement or judgment award on your behalf, we will take our fees directly out of the amount won. If we fail to obtain a monetary recovery for you, you will owe us nothing in attorney’s fees, guaranteed.
