Motor Vehicle Accidents
If you have been injured in an accident while a driver, passenger or pedestrian we can help. Our lawyers have extensive experience in handling all types of motor vehicle accidents. We have handled thousands of cases involving car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents and accidents where a pedestrian has been struck.
The laws covering motor vehicle accidents are very complex in New Jersey. Most people assume that the insurance company for the vehicle that was at fault in causing the accident is responsible for payment of the medical bills. However, this is not true. In New Jersey we have a system called "No Fault" which provides that medical bills are paid according to a complicated formula. If you have been injured you need lawyers, like us, who have extensive experience in dealing with this system and who will fight to get your medical bills paid and get you a cash award for your injury.
The insurance companies have investigators and lawyers who start working against you as soon as your accident is reported. In order to protect your rights, you need to contact an attorney, who will immediately, start working for you. For this reason, our lawyers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help you. It is imperative that you contact us immediately, even before you call the insurance company. At Druckman & Hernandez our goal is to help you obtain all of the benefits and money that you are entitled to. Call 908-353-5850 to speak with an attorney now
