Car insurance companies are primarily concerned with the bottom line, and they will rarely offer fair compensation to accident victims. If you’ve been injured because of another driver’s careless conduct, New Jersey car accident attorney Anthony Carbone can fight for your rights as a victim and help you pursue the compensation you’re entitled to.
Car owners in New Jersey can opt to pay less for vehicle insurance if they agree to restrictions on their right to seek non-economic damages after a car accident. This insurance option is called the “verbal threshold” or “limitation on lawsuit threshold.”
If you unknowingly signed up for a verbal threshold policy, it could be more difficult to receive reasonable compensation for damages after a car accident like:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Diminished quality of life
Our New Jersey car accident attorney knows that the limitations posed by the verbal threshold option can create a significant burden for you and your loved ones. Mr. Carbone will gather a variety of evidence to build a strong case on your behalf, including facts about the severity of the injuries you suffered because of the car accident:
- Accident reports from police and fire department officials
- Witness statements and photos from the scene of the accident
- Medical records indicating the nature, extent and treatment of your injuries
- Input from medical experts about further diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation you might require
Mr. Carbone has more than 20 years of experience representing clients in auto accident cases and protecting them from the tactics insurance companies use to try to avoid responsibility. He is prepared to fight for the compensation you deserve regardless of which insurance policy you selected.
