Questions You May Have as a Result of Being Hit by a Car in NJ

Q: Do I need to call my insurance company if I did not cause the accident? 
A: If your car was involved in the collision, you need to notify your auto insurance carrier.

Q: Who will pay to fix the damage to my car as a result of the auto accident?
A: If you have collision coverage on your car, you can request that your own auto insurance carrier fix your car. This means that your car will be fixed faster and get you back to work. Alternatively, you can have the at-fault driver’s auto insurance carrier take care of the damages. It will be a slower process, but you will not be subject to your deductible.

Q: Should I go to the hospital?
A: If you are in pain, you should have your injuries examined and documented right away. Sometimes, an injury may not seem that severe. However, you could have internal bleeding that you are unaware of. If you do not want to go to the emergency room, you should at least see your family doctor right away without delay.

Q: What if I do not have a family doctor to go see? 
A: Go to the emergency room and have a doctor examine you. You can also look online for a doctor in your area and make an appointment to be checked out.

Q: Who will pay for my medical bills? 
A: NJ law requires that your own auto insurance carrier pay for your medical bills EVEN THOUGH you did not cause the accident. We know it is an odd law and we are happy to sit with you and explain the details.

Q: Will I lose my job because I cannot go to work?
A: Unfortunately, it is possible depending on the situation and the extent of your injuries. You may be protected under the Family Medical Leave Act. We can discuss this with you at our first meeting.

Q: Can I apply for disability? 
A: If your doctor has told you that you cannot work, you can apply for State Temporary Disability Benefits if you do not have your own private plan. We assist clients in completing the application and meeting the application deadlines.

Q: Can I be compensated for my injuries? 
A: Yes. Not only do we hold your hand and walk you through this difficult time, we also help you receive money for your pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and out of pocket expenses.

Q: How do I hire your office to represent me? 
A: Call our office today at 609-392-7600 and ask for Kristy. We will be happy to discuss how we can help you and relieve some of the stress you are feeling right now.
