    What to do When Involved in an Auto Accident

    To preserve your rights in the event of an auto accident, you should:

    •  Seek immediate assistance for anyone injured
    •  Call the police to report the incident
    •  Preserve any evidence
    •  Make notes of the circumstances of the accident
    •  Take photos
    •  Get identifying information from all people involved in the accident
    •  Notify your insurance company

    Doing these can help us gather enough evidence to win your case in court. Courts look to a number of factors in determining whether a driver was negligent. Some examples of these factors include, but are not limited to, the following:

    • Driving too fast or too slow
    • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
    • Failing to signal while turning
    • Disregarding weather or traffic conditions
    • Disobeying traffic signs or signals
    • Failing to drive on the right side of the road

    A driver may also be liable for an auto accident caused by intentional or reckless conduct. A driver who is reckless is one who drives unsafely, with willful and wanton disregard for the probability that the driving may cause an accident. In certain cases, accidents are caused by factors unrelated to the conduct of any particular driver. For example, under the law of product liability, an automobile manufacturer or supplier may be responsible for injuries caused by a defect in the automobile, or a component of the automobile, as in the Firestone tire litigation. A products liability suit is a lawsuit brought against the seller of a product for selling a defective product that caused physical injury to a consumer or user. If a manufacturer of a product creates a defective product – either in developing, designing or labeling the product – the manufacturer is liable for any injures the product causes, regardless of whether or not the manufacturer was negligent.

    Finding the Right Lawyer

    At the Law Office of Charney & Roberts we use our experience in handling accident cases to investigate every possible contributing cause of an accident to ensure that you will receive full compensation for your injuries. Evaluating all of the facts involved in the cause of a motor vehicle accident requires skill and experience.

We can assist you in finding an appropriate medical specialist to treat you, and we can make arrangements with your medical care providers to wait for payment until your case is resolved through settlement or trial.

    Auto accidents are generally decided using the law of negligence. A person who negligently operates a vehicle may be required to pay any damages caused by their negligence, either to person or property. Generally, people who operate automobiles must exercise reasonable care under the circumstances. Failure to use reasonable care is the basis in most lawsuits for damages caused by an automobile accident.

    In all automobile accident cases it is essential that measures be taken promptly to preserve evidence, investigate the accident in question, and to enable physicians or other expert witnesses to thoroughly evaluate any injuries. At Charney & Roberts, the initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to accept your case, we will work on a contingent fee basis. This means we get paid for our services, only if there is a monetary award or recovery of funds. Don’t delay! You may have a valid claim and be entitled to compensation for your injuries, but a lawsuit must be filed before the statute of limitations expires.

    If you or a loved one has been the victim of an auto accident, call us immediately at (908) 925-8300. At Charney & Roberts, we know how to get you the compensation you deserve for suffering an auto accident injury.
