How Do I Know if I am Eligible for Compensation After a Car Accident in New Jersey?

Video Transcript

The way that you know whether or not you’re eligible for compensation after a car accident in New Jersey is definitely to call a lawyer. A lawyer can help walk you through all the steps that you need to determine whether or not your case is compensable. The other thing that a lot of people don’t realize is a lawyer can help determine what your case is worth.Sometimes, I’ve had people come and call me after they’ve negotiated with an insurance company directly and sign a release, waiving any future claims against the insurance company.

They ask, ‘I settled this case for X number of dollars, was that the right thing to do?’ Almost always, it’s the wrong thing to do. It turns out that when I spoke to them, I explained that the value of their case, in some instances, is three, four, five, or even 10 times more than what they settled for. So you absolutely should speak to a lawyer. There is no harm in speaking to a lawyer. It’s a no-fee guarantee. If there’s no recovery, the lawyer doesn’t get paid, and that’s one of the benefits of having a free consultation with the lawyer. It helps you understand what the value of your case is.
