Find out if you have a good case
Some accident cases are relatively straightforward — for example, a driver distracted on the phone fails to see that traffic ahead is slowing down or stopped and as a result, the driver rear-ends the vehicle in front. However, many other accident cases in Fair Lawn and Bergen County are far more complex than that. Often it can be difficult even for those involved in the accident to know exactly how the accident occurred or to pinpoint who may have been responsible for causing the accident and any resulting injuries. Even if you believe you know who was at fault for an accident that you were injured by, successfully pursuing a claim for compensation requires securing evidence that proves someone caused your accident and injuries and that you’ve suffered damages as a result. That is where having an experienced personal injury lawyer can be critical in ensuring you receive fair and full compensation.

Fair Lawn is a borough located in Bergen County, New Jersey. Fair Lawn was incorporated in 1924; the borough gets its name from the Fair Lawn estate owned by David Acker which was later turned into the borough’s municipal building. Fair Lawn was home to one of America’s first planned communities, Radburn, and today the borough is home to many commuters to New York City via car and commuter rail.
Generally speaking, there are no caps on your ability to recover compensation for economic damages you’ve suffered as a result of an accident, such as medical expenses or lost income. If you’ve been involved in a car or other motor vehicle accident, you may be restricted from seeking compensation for pain and suffering damages if you selected the limitation on liability option in your motor vehicle insurance policy and have not suffered a significant and/or permanent injury. Lastly, New Jersey law does limit the amount of punitive damages you might recover at trial to five times the amount of your compensatory damages or $350,000, whichever is greater.
You should never delay contacting a personal injury attorney to discuss your accident and case. The longer you wait to speak to a lawyer, the more likely it is that critical evidence that might be used in your case will be lost. Speaking with an attorney as soon as possible will allow your lawyer to have the maximum amount of time possible to investigate your claim and build a strong, persuasive legal argument on your behalf. Talking with a lawyer soon after your accident also means that he or she can advise you as to the full extent of legal rights and options that you have available to you, some of which may be lost if you fail to act quickly.
