Pennsylvania and New Jersey car accidents are not always fatal and victims may walk away without injuries. Those involved in a car accident who are unharmed may believe they have no need for an attorney, however there are still reasons why it is important to find an attorney who knows the rights and laws that affect uninjured car crash victims.
Finding a Pennsylvania or New Jersey car accident attorney who is willing to take your case if you have no injuries will likely be a challenge. DiamondLawyer knows this process is difficult for you and our attorneys do handle these types of accident cases. Here are three reasons why you might need an attorney if you were in a Pennsylvania or New Jersey car accident where you were not hurt:
- Property damage. After a vehicle accident your car may not be drivable. How will you commute and who will compensate you for a replacement vehicle or collision repairs? You may need an attorney after a Pennsylvania or New Jersey car accident who can advocate on your behalf in the pursuit of insurance claims. You may need to have your vehicle towed and appraisals of the damage completed. Insurance companies may try to take advantage of vehicle owners and offer insufficient coverage by omitting certain repairs or steering you toward their preferred repair shops. You can choose your own tow truck company, repair appraisers, and collision shops. There are other rights our car accident attorneys can explain to you.
- Minor injuries. You may be eligible for compensation even if you have minor injuries. Discuss your options with an attorney for medical treatment costs, lost wages, and other hardships associated with any injury caused by an accident that was not your fault.
- Developing injuries. Some injuries take time to develop. Head and neck injuries may not be noticeable directly following an accident. Head trauma in a collision could cause long-term issues that develop in the weeks and months following an accident. Our accident attorneys in Pennsylvania and New Jersey have helped victims receive compensation who were initially unaware of their injuries.
Whether you and your loved ones have suffered critical injuries or minor bruises, a free consultation with DiamondLawyer will help you understand your rights. Your vehicle may have caused damage to buildings or structures off the road, and you should not be held liable for the cost of those repairs if you were not responsible for the accident. Property damage liability coverage in your insurance policy should cover the costs of these repairs as well as your personal property in the vehicle if it was damaged in the accident. Learning how to file property damage claims in Pennsylvania and New Jersey is a tedious process, one that our accident attorneys can explain and manage on your behalf.
