All too frequently, automobile accidents cause major disruptions in individual lives, either because a motor vehicle has been damaged or, worse, because personal injury has been caused. In addition, sometimes tickets or citations are issues to those who have been involved in the accident and legal representation is needed to protect driver’s licenses and records. South Jersey personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Agre & St. John know how to protect and advocate for your rights if you have been involved in an automobile accident, whatever your individual needs may be.
In the immediate aftermath of a car accident, insurance companies must get involved to assess damages caused to their insureds and to others. It is not the job of the insurance company to protect an injured party’s rights—it is, however, our job to do so. Most people do not know what their insurance policy provides until it becomes necessary to make a claim under it. As a party involved in the accident, you may have the right to compensation for the loss of your vehicle, to a rental vehicle, to the loss of any time from work or employment, for the payment of medical bills and, ultimately to an award of damages for your pain and suffering. It is critical that, as soon as practical after an accident, you consult with an attorney to ensure that your compensation rights are fully preserved and protected.
As someone involved in the accident, you may be asked to give a statement. The attorneys at our firm can attend this statement with you to protect your rights. You will also likely be asked to complete paperwork and to provide documentation. Our office, having represented many individuals over the years in similar situations, is skilled at doing so in the manner that best advocates for your rights as a damaged party.
