What is the Process for an Auto and Motor Vehicle Claim?

There are many steps involved in navigating the process of obtaining compensation for a motor vehicle claim. Our team will thoroughly investigate the crash by collecting evidence from police reports, witnesses, and experts to determine the facts.

We will assess the physical and emotional harm done as a result of the accident and determine the extent of the damages. Injuries are not always visible to the naked eye and as such our team of experienced attorneys will ensure you are properly compensated for your pain and suffering.

After carefully reviewing your auto insurance policy, we will refer you to reputable and trusted medical specialists to properly document your injuries. Our office will handle all of the paperwork and requests for information regarding your accident. We can also help you arrange to have your car fixed and obtain a rental car if necessary.

We will arrange for your medical bills to be paid through the Personal Injury Protection (PIP) provision of your auto insurance policy. Many times, your insurance company becomes an adversary once you make a claim against your policy, as they try to minimize the amount your policy pays in benefits. Our team at Clark & DiStefano have extensive experience handling PIP coverage, as such we have all the tools necessary to ensure you receive the full amount you are entitled to, whether that is through settling out of court or taking the case to trial.

Am I Eligible to File an Auto or Motor Vehicle Accident Lawsuit?

In the state of New Jersey, individuals who are the victim of an auto accident or suffered the loss of a loved one due to a motor vehicle accident have two avenues to pursue legal claims for your injuries or losses.

New Jersey has a No-Fault rule. This means that no matter who is at fault for the accident, your own insurance is the one who is responsible for paying you. This is why auto insurance policies in New Jersey include Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage.

The time period after a major motor vehicle accident can be a very confusing and stressful period of your life.

Whether you have been seriously injured or have endured the loss of a loved one, our team of personal injury attorneys at Clark & DiStefano can help you navigate the confusing landscape of your civil case.

How to Protect Your Rights After an Accident

Insurance companies do not like paying out on claims. They’ve been known to intimidate, manipulate, or even lie in order to sabotage a valid claim. Don’t give them any excuse to do so. After being involved in a collision, be sure you do the following:

  • Do not admit fault in any way.
  • Cooperate with your insurance company, but do not offer any theories about how the crash occurred.
  • Do not discuss the accident with the other drivers insurance company.
  • Do not sign any statements from either insurance company before speaking with a lawyer.

Information you volunteer can be used by the other driver and insurance company to escape accountability. Always consult with your attorney before speaking with anybody else or signing anything.
