After A Car Crash: Establishing Liability, Proving Damages, Accessing Insurance

Even relatively simple car accidents — "He ran the stop sign and hit me" — can generate very complicated problems of evidence, procedure, medical treatment and insurance coverage. To make sure that your interests are fully protected across the full range of issues, it makes sense to work with an auto accident attorney whose ability to present your case to a jury will protect its value in settlement negotiations.

When you work with the Law Offices of Kevin Kovacs, Esq., you will be working with a law firm that looks after all the interests at stake in the aftermath of a serious car accident, including:

  • Accurate, complete and timely diagnosis of your injuries, including those to joints and soft tissues
  • Proper treatment of injuries like whiplash, shoulder or wrist trauma, brain concussion or mild to moderate traumatic brain injury
  • Chronic pain problems related to complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) or reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD)
  • Medical treatment, hospital and rehabilitative expenses covered under either driver's no-fault policy, your own health insurance, or your uninsured or underinsured motorist (UM/UIM) benefits
  • Lost income benefits if your accident causes you to miss work for any period of time
  • Workers' compensation claims for motorists injured while driving a delivery route or otherwise hurt while working

As well as auto accident claims, attorney Kovacs also works with people who suffered injuries after being struck by a motor vehicle while riding a bicycle, walking or jogging.

Most people don't know what they're entitled to after a car accident, and insurance adjusters will take advantage of their lack of awareness to settle injury claims on the cheap. Mr. Kovacs' job is to give you a solid understanding of your rights and help you make the most of them.

In many accident cases, there will be an important issue of fact and law to resolve: Did your accident result in a permanent medical impairment that can be diagnosed and proved through medical evidence? Your right to recover the most complete compensation on your claims will depend on your ability to prove such an injury. Mr. Kovacs will explain your rights under New Jersey's injury threshold laws and analyze the evidence that bears on your claims.
