Supporting Car Accident Victims In Freehold
Pursuing a car accident claim in New Jersey is complex. Many auto insurance policies limit the right of policyholders to sue for car accident injuries, whether or not negligence was involved. At The Law Office of Mallon & Tranger, we are committed to helping auto accident victims maximize the compensation they receive for their injuries.
Our New Jersey car accident attorneys recognize that the limits of most no-fault insurance policies do not meet the medical needs of many injury victims. At our office in Freehold, we work with our clients and their doctors to ensure that they get compensated for any medical care appropriate for their injuries, regardless of policy limits.
What Causes Car Accidents?
Many different factors can contribute to a collision. Common causes of car accidents in New Jersey include:
- Drivers focused on texting, eating or other distractions
- Drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Reckless driving, including making unsafe lane changes or running red lights
- Faulty vehicle components
- Unsafe road conditions, including poor road design, cracked asphalt or debris
- Inclement weather like rain or snow
Our attorneys are dedicated to identifying all the causes for a crash and holding irresponsible people and companies accountable for their part in the damage that the collision caused.
Dealing With Insurance Companies After An Accident
After a car accident in New Jersey, the state’s no-fault laws require your car insurer to cover the collision expenses. Your insurance representatives may claim to be concerned about your well-being and will offer a settlement they say is fair.
However, insurance companies and insurance adjusters prioritize their profits, and they may not pay you what you deserve. Their commitment to their bottom line can cost you.
At The Law Office of Mallon & Tranger, we hold insurance providers responsible for fulfilling their obligations. We know how to use the law to your benefit and will help you prepare a claim that allows you to recover maximum compensation from all sources. Our experienced attorneys defend your interests at all stages of the claims process, including:
- Contacting your adjuster after the accident
- Securing the evidence from the accident scene
- Obtaining relevant medical records from your health care provider
- Working with your medical team to ensure that they present a complete account of your injuries and the services they provided
- Organizing and submitting the evidence to the appropriate party
- Negotiating a fair settlement with the adjuster
Unfortunately, insurance may not provide enough support to address your medical care. If your injuries meet the requirements for a personal injury claim, our attorneys may sue to help you receive compensation for the catastrophic or even fatal injuries of a loved one. All our attorneys are skilled negotiators and aggressive litigators who will help you fight for the support you need.
Optimizing Compensation For Car Accident Injuries
The verbal threshold standard in New Jersey preserves the right to sue for compensation in cases involving significant injuries and wrongful death. Car accident injuries that qualify under the verbal threshold standard include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries, including whiplash injuries
- Significant disfigurement and scarring
- Severely broken bones and displaced fractures
- Soft tissue damage like muscle sprains or strains
- Fatal injuries
In some cases, these injuries can have long-term effects on an injured person’s life. Healing may require long-term care, physical therapy and other medical treatment long after a crash. A personal injury claim should address past medical expenses and the future cost of this care.
