Navigating The Aftermath Of A Crash

A car accident can leave you with serious injuries, and those injuries could impact almost any part of your body. Some common injuries people suffer in car accidents include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Fractures
  • Head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries
  • Neck injuries like whiplash
  • Spinal injuries
  • Loss of limbs
  • Burns

These injuries can impact someone’s health for weeks, months or years after a collision. In some cases, the injuries that a person suffers in a crash may be life-changing or even fatal.

Providing Answers To Questions About Motor Vehicle Accidents

The aftermath of a crash can leave you with many questions, but you do not have to face that uncertainty alone. Fedele & Honschke provides answers to common questions and the concerns that are unique to your situation.

What should I do after a car accident?

Receiving fair compensation often depends on the things you do in the hours and days after a collision. Some steps to take after a collision include:

  • Contact the police to report the accident
  • Seek medical attention as soon as possible
  • Document the scene of the accident
  • Contact your insurance company
  • Seek legal guidance

By taking these precautions, injured people can protect their access to compensation and support their claim in the aftermath of a crash.

Does fault matter after a New Jersey car accident?

Different states handle fault differently. New Jersey has a no-fault insurance system, which means that a driver’s own insurance pays for the harm they suffer in a collision. However, it is also important to remember that insurance only covers some of the costs associated with a crash, like the cost of medical treatment and the income lost due to time away from work.

Do I have to go to court to get compensated after a car accident?

The thought of going to court after a collision can be daunting for many people, and they may wonder whether they can rely on insurance to provide them with the compensation they need. Unfortunately, the compensation that an injured person receives from their insurance company may not be enough to address the full way that their injuries impact their life. In these cases, receiving full and fair compensation may depend on a personal injury lawsuit.

If my injuries are permanent, can I seek compensation?

In some cases, the injuries that a person experiences in a car accident are life-changing. Thankfully, a personal injury claim could also provide compensation for the future cost of permanent injuries. A skilled injury attorney can help you estimate the full financial impact of your injuries, including the cost of medical care in the years after your accident and the way that these catastrophic injuries could impact your future income.
