Being involved in a car accident can be a very physically and emotionally
painful experience. In cases where your accident was caused by a hit and
run driver you may be asking yourself, "Who is going to pay to repair
my vehicle? How do I seek damages to cover the costs of my injuries?"
Without that knowledge, you will not be able to file a claim with his
or her insurance company or file a lawsuit to recover compensation to
help pay for your damages, including:
- Medical costs and future medical expenses
- Lost work wages and future lost earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish and emotional injuries
- Loss of quality / enjoyment of life
Whenever most people get into a wreck, their first action is to contact
the insurance company to report the accident. While you do have a legal
responsibility to inform your insurance company any time you have been
involved in a motor vehicle accident, we strongly advise you
contact our firm and speak with an experienced Bergen County injury attorney at once.
Insurance companies are primarily concerned with avoiding paying high value
claims, when possible. They may give the appearance that they are concerned
about your health and well-being, however, their key interest is in getting
you to settle for the lowest amount possible. In some instances that may
mean denying coverage entirely or attempting to offer a settlement far
below what your plan actually covers. Our firm is committed to protecting
the rights of accident victims throughout Hackensack and New Jersey, and
is prepared to assist you with this urgent matter.
When you contact Brandon J. Broderick, Attorney at Law we will take the
time to review your case and determine the legal options you can pursue
to recover damages. New Jersey law requires drivers to carry
uninsured motorist coverage, but that is not the only option available to the victims of hit and run
accidents. In certain circumstances, and in coordination with the efforts
of local law enforcement, our firm may be able to help locate the hit
and run driver who caused the accident. In either instance, our firm will
work with you closely to file a claim or lawsuit on your behalf to seek
the damages you are rightfully owed.
