    AUTO ACCIDENTS – AND WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

    It’s easy to become overwhelmed at the scene of a car accident or when dealing with all the things that need to be taken care of following an accident, such as insurance companies, hospitals, doctors, your place of work, lost wages and repair shops. Most people are not familiar with the laws and requirements involved in filing an accident claim. For instance, IN NEW JERSEY YOU HAVE A LIMITED AMOUNT OF TIME TO BRING A CLAIM. Dimian & Masterpalo can help guide you through the process and get you the compensation you deserve.

    THE TOP FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO DO AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT

    Be Safe

    The first thing you should do is make sure you or others are out of harm’s way. It is best not to remove the vehicles before the police come to the scene, however, that’s not always safe to do.
    Call for medical assistance immediately if you or anyone else is injured.

    Call The Police

    In New Jersey, accidents over $500 in damage MUST be reported to the police.

    Never leave the scene of the accident. Wait for the police to arrive. The police will take statements from you and the other driver. They will prepare a report that will be available within 10 days of the accident. It is important when filing an injury or property damage claim you have a copy of this report; this is your proof that the accident happened the way you say it happened.

    Contact your insurance company to inform them about the accident.

    Take Notes and Pictures

    Gather as much information as possible regarding the accident. If you have one, use your cell phone for taking photos of the damage to all vehicles involved. Get the names and numbers of all witnesses to the accident and exchange information with the other driver. But do not discuss fault of the accident with the other driver.

    Cooperate with the police fully and carefully detail the facts of the accident, but NEVER admit fault. If the other driver admits fault or apologizes, write or make a mental note of exactly what was said at the scene of the accident.

    Call A Medical Provider

    Often at the scene of an accident, due to an adrenaline rush, many of our clients have said they didn’t feel any pain or discomfort, sometimes for hours or even days after an accident. That’s why it is so important to seek medical treatment immediately.

    Your health and getting the proper treatment for any injuries sustained should be your primary concern but getting documentation from a doctor regarding your injuries is important if you plan on pursuing a claim.

    Review Police Report Carefully And Consult An Attorney

    It is always best to seek legal advice as soon as possible. An attorney can help you go over your police report as well as guide you through talking to insurance agents and filing a claim if that is what you decide to do.

    Insurance companies will be calling you to gather as much information as possible. Be careful in speaking with any insurance representative, as everything you say will be recorded. Don’t be tempted by a quick offer to settle. Getting counsel from an experienced auto accident attorney will help you get the financial compensation you deserve.
