After an automobile accident or other incident that injures you or your property, your first priority is to make sure you are safe and get the medical care you need. Once the dust settles, however, it’s likely that a representative from an insurance company will contact you. Before you agree to provide a statement or even answer questions, make sure you understand the whole situation.

If you’ve been injured in a New Jersey auto accident, pedestrian accident, slip-and-fall, or other incident that caused you harm, you likely want to put everything behind you as soon as possible. Often, however, it may not be the right decision to settle your claim quickly. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you recover the compensation you deserve from the parties responsible for your injuries and help protect your rights. Without a lawyer, you may wind up with a mountain of medical bills, unanticipated effects that linger long after you think everything is resolved, and no way to recover for the harm you’ve suffered.

The good news is that many personal injury team offer free initial consultations. They may also allow you to enter a fee agreement that minimizes your expenses while allowing you to pursue compensation for your damages.

If you witness an auto accident or other emergency situation, do you worry you might get sued if you intervene?
