Was rear ended by another car while making a left turn. NYPD trooper was eyewitness of the hit and run. Moderate damage to car but not the people in it. 5 people were in the car had neck and back pain due to accident.
First, I'm sorry to hear that this happened to you. I hope everyone who was hurt sought medical treatment. If not, that would be the most important thing to do now. As far as getting compensation, if the police are able to find the person who hit you, you may be able to pursue a claim against that person and recover compensation from his or her insurance company. If that person is never caught or turns out not to have auto insurance, then you may have the grounds for a claim with your own auto insurer under any uninsured motorist coverage you purchased as part of your policy. The passengers, too, may have different options depending on your insurance and any auto insurance polices of their own. The next step you should take is to reach out to a New Jersey attorney who has experience handling car accident cases, especially hit and runs. Most of us offer free consultations and can help you better understand your rights and options based on the specific information that applies to your unique situation. I hope this information helps. Best of luck with you recovery and the case!See question
I was in a car accident, and it was not my fault, I was a passenger and got rear ended I suffered loss of feeling on my left side of my body, no surgery I'm ok now..how much is my case worth
I'm sorry to hear that this happened to you, and I'm glad that you're doing better now. As others have noted, there isn't enough information here to accurately tell you how much your case is worth at this point. What you can do is discuss the situation in more detail with an attorney (for free) who handles cases like yours. (Most of us offer free consultations, so there's no cost for this.) Once a lawyer knows more about your unique situation, he or she can help you understand more about the claims process and the value of your claim. I hope this helps and that you're able to get what you deserve. Good luck.See question

I am so, so sorry for your loss. Medical malpractice claims are very fact-specific, so it's hard to say without more information if what happened consitutes malpractice. I think it would be in your family's best interests to reach out to an attorney with experience handling medical malpractice cases in Pennsylvania to discuss the situation further. Most of us do offer free consultations and handle claims on a no-win, no-fee basis, so your family won't have to pay anything to speak with an attorney. This is clearly a very difficult time for your family, and having a lawyer look into this situation for you may be able to help you get some answers and, hopefully, some closure. Again, I truly am sorry that you are going through this. I hope you're able to find the help you need.See question

I'm sorry to hear about your accident. If you're trying to handle this yourself, you're likely to find that the insurance company will either delay settling with you so it can hold onto the money longer or else try to get you to accept a quick settlement that's way less than you deserve. I strongly suggest that you consider speaking with a Philadelphia car accident attorney. Most of us do offer free consultations and handle claims on a no-win, no-fee basis. On average, people who hire a lawyer get 3.5 times more money for their claims than those who don't. You're looking to get the maximum amount of money available to you, but how much that is depends on a lot of factors -- like how much insurance coverage is available, how long your injuries kept you out of work, and how well you have recovered from these injuries. As far as how long it will take to get your money, that too depends on a number of factors. Ultimately, it's more important that you get the full amount of money you deserve than that you get your money quickly (and if you're having trouble affording your medical copays or paying your bills while you've been out of work, a lawyer may be able to help you with these issues, too). I hope this information helps and that you're able to make a good recovery from your injuries. Best of luck with the claim.See question
So someone hit our car and police says it's their fault in the accident report. But we have cheap auto insurance that has the limitation on not suing. Tort or torque or something- sorry.....my husband was injured. Thanks!
I'm sorry to hear about your accident. I hope your husband is doing better now. Even if you have limited tort, you can still make a claim for certain damages, like your medical costs. To sue for pain and suffering, you will need to show that the injuries were severe enough to exceed the tort threshold. An attorney can help you understand what this means and prove that your husband's injuries were serious. (If the injuries are serious enough to exceed this threshold, then this is the kind of claim that requires a lawyer's help; otherwise, your husband will most likely end up getting just a fraction of the amount of money he really deserves.) Most of us do offer free consultations and handle claims on a no-win, no-fee basis, so it won't cost you anything to get a lawyer's input on the situation. Best of luck to your family with recovery and with the case.See question
I was involved in an auto accident and ems made the decision to air lift me to the hospital. I was taken from an ambulance to a helicopter for a 7 minute ($42,000) ride to the hospital. This was done without my knowledge or permission.
First, I'm so sorry to hear that this happened to you. How much of this charge will be your responsibility depends on a number of factors. Do you have auto insurance? Do you have medical insurance? Depending on the circumstances, one or both of these coverages may be involved in paying this bill. Since you needed air transport to the hospital, it sounds as though your injuries are pretty serious. If the accident was someone else's fault, it would be a good idea for you to reach out to a personal injury attorney to discuss the situation further. Most of us do offer free consultations, so talking to a lawyer won't add to your financial burden. An attorney can help you sort out insurance coverage for this bill, get compensation from the at-fault party to pay for all of your damages, and perhaps even negotiate down the cost to something more reasonable. I hope this information helps. Best of luck with your recovery.See question
I WAS THE PASSENGER AND THE LYFT DRIVER LEFT THE SCENE IN AN ACCIDENT HE GOT INTO; I WENT TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM FOR AA COUPLE OF THINGS THE NXT DAY (DONT WANT TO WRITE DETAILS HERE).
I'm so sorry that this happneed to you. Unfortunately, claims that involve ridesharing services like Lyft and Uber are complicated, due in part to the complex auto insurance issues. It would be in your best interests to speak with a Newark attorney -- preferably one who has experience handling cases against Lyft or Uber -- about your sitation privately. Most of us do offer free consultations, so you don't have to worry about this costing anything (and, of course, the consultation is confidential). The sooner you get a lawyer involved to look into this situation, the better. I hope this information helps and that you're able to get the assistance you need. Best of luck.See question

First, I am so, so sorry to hear that your family has been through all of this. As far as your question goes, it's a good idea to seek legal counsel as early as possible. From the information you have posted, it seems that you already know that your wife has some serious injuries that will require a good deal of rehabilitation. I would suggest that you start your search for the right New Jersey attorney as soon as possible. Having a lawyer on your side early can help you in a number of ways. You won't have to deal with the insurance company anymore, which saves you time and frustration. Some of us are willing to help with matters like getting your property damage claim resolved and negotiating down your medical bills. Since lawyers get their clients on average 3.5 times more money than unrepresented claimants get for themselves, it really is worthwhile to hire an attorney for a car accident claim. Also, since most of us offer free consultations and handle claims on a no-win, no-fee basis, having a lawyer won't cost you anything unless you win. I hope this information helps. Best of luck to your family with this situation and with recovering from the injuries.See question

I'm sorry to hear that you have been through these things. If you think that you may have a medical malpractice claim or car accident claim (or both), why don't you reach out to a New Jersey attorney who handles both of these kinds of cases? Most of us do offer free consultations, and we can gather enough information from you to help you understand what your legal options are. I hope you're able to recover from these ordeals. Best of luck.See question

I'm sorry to hear about what you and your wife have been through. If you are injured in a car accident, it's always a good idea to at least speak with an attorney to make sure you understand the process and your legal rights and options. Most New Jersey lawyers offer free consultations, so you won't need to worry about this conversation costing you anything. You should also know that, while attorneys do get a percentage of the compensation they recover for you as payment for representing you, this means you don't have to pay anything upfront for a lawyer to investigate your case, represent you, file legal documents or hire expert witnesses. (These things can cost thousands of dollars, but you don't have to worry about being able to afford that burden. The lawyer will cover it now, and you'll only have to pay this back if and when you get money for the case.) Also, research shows that attorneys get their clients on average 3.5 times what unrepresented claimants get for themselves -- so the additional money a lawyer is able to get for you more than covers the cost of attorneys' fees. Many of us will also help with situations like negotiating down any outstanding medical bills you have (which saves you money). Some of us will handle property damage claims as a courtesy to you, but we don't take a percentage of the money you get for your car. Please don't let these concerns deter you from speaking with an attorney. If your case really isn't worth hiring a lawyer, the attorney will tell you so -- because it's not in a lawyer's benefit to pursue a low-value claim. I do hope this information helps and clarifies some things for you. Please be aware that the sooner you reach out to an attorney, the more he or she can help. Good luck!See question
