How to Recover Compensation as an Injured Passenger in New Jersey

Car accidents are perhaps the most startling thing a person can endure. Nothing gets your heart pumping like seeing another motorist coming right for you. Unfortunately, if you are a passenger in a car accident, there is very little you can do to protect yourself, and you are most likely now severely injured as a result. Fortunately, if you are seeking financial compensation, you’ve come to the right place.

By choosing our experienced firm, you drastically increase your chances of recovering the compensation you need to help pay for the cost of your medical bills, in-home care, lost wages, and more. If this sounds like something you need, please read on to learn more about how our firm can help you. Here are some of the questions you may have:

What are the most common causes of car accidents?

Car accidents, as you know, can be caused by several different variables, depending on the time of day, the motorists on the road, where you are geographically located, and more. Though sometimes people are not directly responsible for car accidents, usually, they are. This is known as driver negligence. Some examples of negligent driver behavior are as follows:

  • Driving under the influence
  • Texting while driving
  • Speeding
  • Driving while drowsy or fatigued
  • Unsafely changing lanes
  • Disregarding all other rules of the road

How are passengers usually injured in car accidents?

The most common injuries passengers sustain in car accidents are as follows:

  • Broken bones
  • Severe burns
  • Facial disfiguration
  • Neck injuries
  • Back trauma
  • Mental trauma
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Wrongful death

Will I qualify for compensation?

Those seeking financial compensation in personal injury claims must always first prove that they were injured due to another party’s negligence. A knowledgeable attorney can help you do so. Our firm will help recover security camera or dashcam footage of your accident, pictures of the injuries you’ve sustained, medical documents, police reports, and more. Additionally, once you file your personal injury claim, you must make it a point to limit your social media presence. The more you post, the greater chance you have of losing your claim. Insurance companies will most likely be monitoring your social media accounts, and if you happen to post something that even remotely challenges or disproves your claim, the insurance companies will use it against you and deny you the compensation you truly need.
