How Our Essex County Lawyers Determine the Cause and Cost of Car Crashes
While many car accidents are the result of negligent operation by a driver, others are caused by tire and other vehicle defects, improper road maintenance, and not setting up work zones correctly. An important part of any car accident case is identifying the negligent party as soon as possible. Our attorneys do this by examining the scene, consulting with experts such as accident reconstructionists, interviewing witnesses, and reviewing police reports.
Calculating the Cost of a Car Accident in New Jersey
In addition to identifying the cause of the car accident, our lawyers determine the full impact of the accident and injuries on the lives of our clients. We calculate the medical and hospital expenses, the lost income, the additional costs of living with an injury or disability, the cost of rehabilitation, and the cost of modifying the client’s home or car. In addition, we count the non-economic damages caused by the victim’s pain and suffering, such as the loss of enjoyment of life, the psychological cost of not working, and other non-economic consequences of being in a serious car accident.
