Jersey City Wrong-Way Accident Lawyers

Have you been hurt in a wrong-way car accident as a result of another driver’s carelessness? You may be entitled to financial compensation. Wrong-way accidents can occur when a driver fails to exercise good judgment while out on the road.

They may think that what they’re doing is harmless — that their turn or exit is right up ahead, and there’s no real harm if no one else is driving on that particular stretch of road. Regardless, wrong-way driving can put the negligent driver and others in danger of severe injury and even death.

If you did not cause the accident, you are not at fault. Nor should you be expected or required to pay the medical bills or other expenses associated with the accident. When you’re the victim of a wrong-way collision caused by someone else, you are entitled to compensation for the injuries their negligence caused. Their carelessness caused them to collide with your vehicle and led to your injuries.

If you’ve been injured in a wrong-way collision, it is important that you get in contact with a Jersey City car accident lawyer right away. Call the skilled lawyers of Brach Eichler Injury Lawyers at (201) 583-5765 or contact us online on our website to schedule a FREE consultation. Let us help you get on the road to financial recovery.

Do I Need a Lawyer?

The short answer is yes. A lawyer from Brach Eichler Injury Lawyers can shoulder the responsibility of filing all the claim paperwork for you while you focus on healing your injuries. We can investigate the accident, gather evidence, and make sure that all of the details of your filing your claim are correct. We can handle communications with the insurance company and any other parties, as well as managing all the legal paperwork so that you can avoid becoming overwhelmed and stressed.

You can certainly file a claim for compensation after your accident with the responsible party’s insurance company, but it can be a complicated process. There are many forms to complete and information you have to collect. Additionally, you’ll have to work with the insurance adjuster and try to convince them that you really do have a claim. They will do their best to make sure they pay you nothing.

You’ll find it a great relief to turn over all that worry to a lawyer who is familiar with how the process works and knows how to manage insurance adjusters. Hiring a lawyer will pay off in the long run.

Determining Who Is at Fault

In a wrong-way collision, it may be a no-brainer to you, the victim, who caused your accident. For instance, say that you were traveling to your destination the correct way on a one-way street. Then, another driver appeared in front of you, traveling at high speed the wrong way, collided with your vehicle, and caused you harm. It is easy to see from the above example who is at fault for causing your accident — the other driver.

However, when the time comes for you to obtain compensation from the insurance company, you may find that it is more difficult than expected to provide evidence of where the fault lies. Additionally, the other driver may attempt to lie or tell another version of the story of how the two of you collided entirely. They may even go so far as to accuse you of being the reason the accident occurred.

Following an accident, you may be too stressed or too ill to go back and forth with the insurance company. As a result, you may settle for whatever small amount of compensation the insurance adjuster offers you. That amount may not even cover all your medical bills, much less compensate you for your intangible losses, like pain and suffering.

An experienced lawyer can handle all the details of determining who was at fault and which insurance company you should go to for compensation. Your attorney can gather the evidence necessary in order to file a claim and can fight to get you the compensation you deserve following your accident. This way, you can focus on getting your health in order and get back to your life as soon as possible.

Compensation for Wrong-Way Accidents

When you’re injured in a crash that wasn’t your fault, you’re probably entitled to compensation. The type of compensation and how much you will be granted depends on several factors, including the severity of your injuries.

The kinds of losses you could be eligible for compensation for after a wrong-way accident are:

  • Loss of earnings
  • Loss of possible future earnings or income
  • Medical bills
  • Cost of future medical care
  • Pain and suffering

You may be entitled to other forms of compensation depending on the severity of your injuries.
