Bellmawr Car Accident Lawyer
INJURED IN A CRASH? OUR BELLMAWR CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEY CAN HELP.
Car crashes abound in New Jersey, often leaving victims with major property damage and devastating injuries such as spinal cord or brain injuries that may lead to lifelong care or even death. Survivors may be hit with huge medical, rehabilitation, and repair bills that keep mounting at a time when they may be in pain and unable to work.
If you or a loved one was injured or someone has died in a car crash that was someone else’s fault, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses through insurance or a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. However, New Jersey laws are complicated, and making mistakes can be costly, so this is not something you should fight on your own.
CAR ACCIDENT CASES ARE ALL ABOUT CLAIMING WHAT YOU ARE OWED.
At this difficult time, it makes sense to have a lawyer on your side who can provide guidance, deal with insurance companies and the intricacies of New Jersey law, and fight for the settlement you deserve. At Wapner Newman, our Bellmawr, NJ, car accident attorneys are here to take the burden off you and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Damage Awards Our Car Accident Lawyers in Bellmawr May Win
Depending on the facts of your car accident, our Bellmawr car accident lawyer may win a damage award that covers the following:
Economic damages for your monetary losses and costs such as:
- Medical and rehabilitation expenses and costs of continuing care
- Lost wages and future earning potential
- Property damage.
Non-economic damages for restitution for damages that do not have a specific dollar value, but negatively impact your life, such as:
- Physical and emotional pain and suffering
- Loss of quality of life and consortium.
In some rare cases where there was gross or willful negligence, you may also be awarded punitive damages. These are meant to punish a defendant that acted in a willful, malicious way and with a wanton disregard for others’ safety.
Our Bellmawr Car Accident Attorney Must Prove Negligence
To win your case, our attorneys would have to show that your injuries were caused by another party’s negligence or fault. This means legally proving the following elements:
- Duty: The defendant owed you a duty to take reasonable care not to cause you harm.
- Breach: The defendant breached this duty and failed to exercise this care.
- Cause: The breach of duty caused your injuries.
- Damages: You suffered damages as a result.
Determining fault is a complex legal process and can be difficult because there may be issues involved such as bad weather, road construction, another car accident, vehicle malfunctions, or distracted, drunk or aggressive driving. In some cases, there may be multiple at-fault parties in addition to the other driver, such as the owner of a trucking company if you were hit by a truck or a road repair company that left debris on the road.
Our Bellmawr car accident attorneys would look to hold all negligent parties accountable, as they all may have insurance and assets that can go toward a settlement.

Car Accident Attorneys in Bellmawr, NJ, Answer Frequently Asked Questions
After a car accident, you are bound to have questions and concerns. The best place to get answers is at your free consultation, but to get you started, here are answers to some questions our lawyers are often asked:
Should I speak to the insurance company?
Insurance companies are out for profit and concerned with their bottom line, not your well-being. It’s best to say nothing to the insurance company and tell them to speak to your attorney instead.
Our Wapner Newman lawyers know how to negotiate and deal with insurance companies, who often come up with better offers when they know you have an attorney willing to take your case to trial.
Are there deadlines for filing a car accident lawsuit in Bellmawr, New Jersey?
Yes, under New Jersey law, you only have two years for filing a car accident lawsuit. If you miss the deadline, the chances are the courts will refuse to hear your case. In addition, the sooner you call our attorneys after your injury, the better, as it takes time to investigate and build your case.
Should I try to find eyewitnesses after a car accident in Bellmawr, New Jersey?
Yes. Don’t depend on the police to find eyewitnesses. They are primarily focused on assisting injured drivers and passengers, securing the accident scene, and restoring normal traffic.
Right after an accident, find a safe spot away from the accident scene and the road and look for eyewitnesses who saw the accident. Write down their names, contact numbers, addresses, and license plate numbers.
What if I partially caused the accident?
New Jersey has a comparative negligence law, so you can sue the other negligent driver’s insurer even if you’re partially liable for an accident. However, the court will adjust compensation accordingly. For instance, if you’re 40 percent at fault for the crash, the court will reduce your compensation by 40 percent.
We know that you have more questions, and our Bellmawr car accident attorneys are fully prepared to answer them. Give us a call today.
