Get the Facts about Auto Accident Lawsuits

There are many common misconceptions about auto accident litigation. Most of us have seen sensationalized interpretations of car accident litigation on television programs and in movies. It is important to learn from an experienced Newark auto accident lawyer the difference between fact and fiction when it comes to auto accident laws.

Medical Costs

Most people are under the assumption that the “at fault” party is responsible for your medical costs resulting from an automobile accident. In New Jersey, medical bills are actually paid for by the injured party’s own automobile insurance company, regardless of fault. If you or family members residing with you do not own an automobile, then the insurance company for the car you occupied will most likely be responsible for paying your medical bills.

Recovering Damages

Most people are under the impression that they are entitled to compensation for pain and suffering if any type of injury is suffered in an auto accident. This too is not the case. The severity of the injury sustained in the accident, as well as the type of insurance coverage you selected are key factors in determining whether you will be entitled to any money damages.

Seeing a Medical Professional

Many people are under the impression that it is not necessary to see a doctor after an accident if not seriously injured. Injuries oftentimes do not become apparent until hours or even days after an accident. Unfortunately many of the people, who wait to long before they receive medical attention may have a difficult time recovering compensation. If you are ever in an auto accident, protect yourself and seek medical attention immediately.
