Compensation Our Lawyers Can Seek for You

Shulman & Hill could help you recover compensation after a hit and run accident based on the following grounds:

Past Losses

By the time you come in to see us, you may have already lost a great deal, including:

  • Emergency medical care costs
  • The physical and mental pain of incurring injuries in such a traumatic way
  • The income and job benefits you get from going to work regularly

Our New Jersey personal injury team can help you determine the precise worth of each loss you have suffered and include that amount in your lawsuit.

Future Losses

Once your case ends, you likely will not get another chance to sue for additional damages, even if you incur additional losses afterward. It is important to accurately estimate your future losses as part of your current lawsuit.

For example, our team can assess your case and determine:

  • How much pain you may experience in the future because of slow-to-heal injuries or ones that will not heal
  • The cost of medical treatments your doctor says you will need
  • How much income you will miss out on when your injuries force you to take time off work or retire early

Present Losses

Even as you take steps to obtain financial compensation, you could suffer physically, emotionally, and financially. We can monitor your condition throughout the case and make any necessary, last-minute adjustments to your lawsuit. Our goal is ensuring you ask for the amount of compensation you need to rebuild your life.

How Much Compensation Can I Recover for a Hit and Run Accident in New Jersey?

The compensation you could receive depends on various factors, including:

  • How severe your injuries are
  • How much work you missed (and expect to miss in the future)
  • How expensive your medical care and other losses are
  • The terms of the involved insurance policies

The important part is to make sure you ask for the right amount of compensation so that you do not end up paying for anything out of pocket. Shulman & Hill has helped many clients assess their cases’ value and file claims and/or lawsuits for the money they need.

How Your Hit and Run Case in New Jersey May Proceed

There are few certainties when it comes to filing a suit. This is one of the reasons why it is a good idea to hire a hit and run accident attorney from Shulman & Hill as soon as possible: we can help you navigate all points of confusion.

Your case may or may not follow each of the following steps:

Collecting Evidence

You must show the accident happened just as you say it did. This could mean gathering material such as:

  • Medical records
  • Photos and video footage from various sources
  • Witness testimony
  • Expert testimony
  • Receipts and bills you have received
  • Police records or a police report

With this evidence in hand, we could establish many essential facts about your case, such as:

  • The fact that you were not at fault
  • How much compensation you require to meet your needs
  • The fact that the other driver committed a hit and run
  • How the accident caused your injuries and how serious those injuries are

Dealing With Other Parties

The other parties involved in your case could include some or all the following:

  • The hit-and-run driver
  • Any other at-fault parties
  • Insurance companies
  • Witnesses
  • Experts
  • The judge and jury

Some parties, such as the judge who presides over your case, are neutral. Others, like the at-fault party, could try to prevent you from collecting fair compensation.

Your lawyer is the only party you can depend on to support your interests in a hit-and-run accident case. The team at Shulman & Hill could help you deal with all other parties by:

  • Filling out case paperwork on your behalf
  • Attending meetings on your behalf and/or accompanying you to meetings
  • Corresponding with all other parties, letting you know what they say, and helping you decide how we should respond to them

Determining How to Handle Your N.J. Personal Injury Case

In some cases, we can settle everything without having to go to trial. On occasions where a trial becomes necessary, we can speak for you in the courtroom and present evidence to the judge and jury.

How do you know when to negotiate for a settlement and when to take the at-fault party to court? We can help you figure that out. When you meet with a hit and run accident attorney from our firm, the two of you can:

  • Go over your goals for the case and your life going forward
  • Review the pros and cons of each of your options
  • Discuss which option you want to pursue and how each is likely to play out

We always abide by whatever decisions our client makes and keep them updated on their case’s progress so that they always know what is going on. This is, after all, still your case, and we want to see it completed to your satisfaction.

When Can I File a New Jersey Hit and Run Lawsuit?

Typically, you should begin a lawsuit as soon as possible after an accident. Here are a few reasons why:

  • State law, found at NJ Rev. Stat. § 2A:14-2, generally gives you two years to bring a lawsuit against a reckless driver.
  • More evidence may be available sooner after the collision rather than later.
  • The evidence may be more reliable and of better quality than it would be months or years from now.
  • Legal actions can take a while to complete. The sooner you start that process, the sooner you may receive the money you need to cover accident-related expenses.

Before taking any legal action after a hit and run, consider speaking with one of our car accident attorneys serving New Jersey. We can make sure you fully understand all your legal options and even help you determine which options are right for your family.

First Steps After a Hit and Run Traffic Accident

The actions you take immediately after a hit-and-run accident could make it easier for you to collect compensation later. For example:

  • If you take photos of your injuries or the damage to your car while still at the scene, you can show how badly the accident affected you.
  • You should seek medical attention as soon as possible, both to protect your health and to prove your injuries resulted from the hit and run crash.
  • If you say little about the accident to as few people as possible, other parties have less opportunity to twist your words to their advantage.
  • You can hire Shulman & Hill to represent you in all matters of the collision that happened in New Jersey. This way, the other parties do not get a chance to try to manipulate you into giving up compensation or dropping the case.

No one expects to get into a car accident, especially not one involving a hit and run driver. If you did not follow all the steps outlined above, please do not think you have “ruined” your chance to seek compensation. Shulman & Hill can still help you.
