RECENTLY INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT? IT’S IMPORTANT YOU CONTACT AN ATTORNEY FOR REASONS YOU MAY NOT EVEN REALIZE
When you are involved in an automobile accident, truck accident, slip and fall accident or suffered personal injuries as a result of the negligence or carelessness of another person, it is extremely important to immediately contact a New Jersey personal injury attorney.
When you are involved in an accident, you will, without a doubt, be contacted by an insurance adjuster who is well trained and highly skilled in handling these matters on behalf of the insurance company. If you have sustained serious personal injuries and you communicate with the responsible party’s insurance carrier prior to consulting with a qualified personal injury lawyer, you are making a significant mistake. Routinely, telephone calls with the adjusters are tape recorded.
The insurance adjuster will contact you within one or two days of the accident and, in many cases, before you have even had an opportunity to be evaluated by the appropriate medical providers. Oftentimes, accident victims will indicate he/she has a minor injury to an adjuster who is recording the call shortly after the accident, only to discover that the injury is much more serious than originally thought. These early communications with the insurance carrier adjuster may serve to unjustifiably undermine your claim in a personal injury lawsuit.
Accordingly, it is imperative that if you are the victim of an accident you must consult a New Jersey personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after the accident and certainly prior to any communications with the responsible party’s insurance carrier. Retaining a qualified personal injury attorney in New Jersey, such as the Law Office of Edward C. Lutz, LLC, who is experienced and skilled in all areas of personal injury law, is the most prudent course. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment!
