Depending on the type of accident, there may be various sources of money available to assist the victim. By hiring Underwood and Micklin, we can determine who should be paying for what and ensure that you get proper care and fair and just compensation.

The most common types of automobile accidents in New Jersey are:

  • Rear End Collisions (New Jersey State law states the driver who rear-ends the other is presumed to be at fault)
  • Head On Collisions
  • Rollover Accidents
  • Side Collisions
  • Tractor Trailer Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Pedestrians being hit by motor vehicles or commercial vehicles

When an auto accident occurs, and if you are injured, you should always call the local police to ensure the accident is properly documented. If you are hurt, we advise you to seek medical attention. By getting an examination done, the victim can establish whether there was an injury or not and also show any deterioration in health from causes such as whiplash, concussions, and hidden injuries. If the accident was not your fault, you should not have to be financially burdened by resulting injuries. Any type of compensation being sought needs to have proper and timely evidence to ensure success. Be very cautious speaking with the other insurance company about any issues except minor property damage claims. The insurance carrier for the other side is often more interested in helping their own insured. Be wary of any requested or recorded statements taken without a lawyer being present.

We always recommend you take photos of the damage to both vehicles, and any bruises or injuries sustain so they may be properly documented. If you are hurt, we recommened you seek medical attention. It it important to communicate to your doctor any and all injuries sustained in the accident, and be clear about your past history so there is no confusion or problem later on in the case.

Typical injuries from these accidents include:

  • Neck Injuries (whiplash)
  • Back Injuries
  • Head (Cervical) Injuries
  • Leg (Lumbar) Injuries
  • Knee Injuries
  • Injuries going down extremities
  • (arms and legs)
