I was in the car, I was the passenger, we were stopped about five cars back from the stop sign and all of the sudden we got hit from behind… And it was a girl that was talking on her cell phone. My car insurance said, ‘We’re not paying for anything else.’ My private health insurance said, ‘We’re not paying for anything else.’ Without a lawyer I would probably still be out there wondering why I was still hurting, why I was still having problems and what was I going to do? Peter has contacted the insurance companies. He has gone with me to doctor’s appointments. They have really gone above and beyond. We need people like Peter Davis to help us.

I was driving on Route 46. A guy was on his cell phone and didn’t realize everyone had stopped or slowed in front of him, so full blast, he hit me in the back. After the accident, I called Peter’s office and he started working for me right away. Peter took the case to arbitration and forced the insurance company to give me a good settlement.

I was with my son about to get to the cash register and there was a puddle of water that I didn’t see and I slipped and fell. After I fell, I was in physical therapy for six months. I called Peter’s office and Peter started working for me right away. I don’t think the insurance company would have been fair with me if I didn’t have a good lawyer. I would recommend the Peter Davis law firm to anyone who was injured in an accident.

I was driving in Hoboken and was preparing to stop at a stop sign and before I got to the stop sign, I was rear-ended. After the accident, I called Peter’s office and they started working for me right away. Large insurance companies are not looking out for the consumer. I needed Peter Davis to help me out. Mr. Davis fought hard for me and got me the money that I deserved.

I was at a red light and a driver came up behind and rear-ended my vehicle. Immediately after the accident, I called Peter Davis’ office and he started working on my case right away. His staff was very conscientious to the issue and I just felt very comfortable with dealing with his entire office. He really did a great job in helping me. First thing I would do is find yourself a good attorney like Peter Davis. Peter did a great job with the insurance company. He really fought hard for me.

I was in a terrible car accident. Immediately after that, I was taken to the hospital in an ambulance. The insurance company treated me unfairly. They refused to pay for my surgery and Mr. Davis made them. If you get into an accident, it’s very important for you to pick someone to be your voice and defend your rights and I suggest Mr. Davis. When I came to Mr. Davis, I was treated with respect, like I was one of his family members, and I really loved him for that.

If you were injured in a truck accident that wasn’t your fault, you very likely have a case. Your semi-truck accident lawyer will review several factors with you to determine the value of your case.

There are many causes of truck accidents. For example, the driver may fall asleep at the wheel or lose control due to faulty brakes, poorly balanced cargo, or bad weather conditions. Other causes could include speeding, getting distracted, or driving while impaired.

Every state has a “statute of limitations” or a time limit to file your claim. In New Jersey, this time limit is two years from the date of the accident.

Negligence is an important factor in auto accidents. It means proving that someone else acted carelessly and that those actions caused the accident, which caused your injury. With truck accidents, this is tricky because the driver, the trucking company, the parts manufacturers, the maintenance crew, and others may hold some responsibility.

Discuss your case with an experienced Paterson, NJ truck accident lawyer to help you ensure all responsible parties are held accountable.

What Compensation Can I Recover?

It’s hard for any attorney to say upfront what your case is worth because each case is different. You can, however, get compensated for all of your medical bills, including but not limited to visits to your doctor’s office, medical procedures like surgery, physical therapy, medication, and other expenses.

You can also get compensation for lost wages and the loss of potential future earnings. In addition, you can get compensated for invisible injuries like mood swings, depression, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium and comfort, and other harm.

First, however, you must give us a call or fill out our online form so we can discuss your case. Then we can determine what it’s worth. It’s also important to understand that New Jersey has a modified comparative negligence law, which means that if you are more than 50% responsible, you can’t get paid. That’s why it’s so important to have an experienced New Jersey truck accident lawyer who can build you an iron-clad case.

How Can a Lawyer Help?

The insurance companies and lawyers for the other side will do whatever it takes to avoid paying you. They will deny responsibility, bully you, and even blame you for the accident. When that happens, you need a truck accident law firm to step in and be your ally. At Peter N. Davis & Associates, our truck accident experts will take over communications, stop the bullying, and build a rock-solid case to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Our attorneys leave no stone unturned and will help you seek additional compensation for which you may not know you are eligible. For example, we might find that the trucking company, the truck driver, the parts manufacturer, the maintenance crew, and the cargo loading company all hold some responsibility for your accident, which would result in you receiving a larger settlement.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can technically represent yourself, but it’s not a good idea. Truck accident cases are highly complex. They usually involve multiple parties trying to protect their own interests, but they all want to prevent you from getting the full compensation you deserve. However, a truck accident law firm like Peter N. Davis & Associates can give you the best shot at maximum compensation.

Negligence refers to when a person or group of people act carelessly, that act causes an accident, and that accident directly results in you getting injured. For example, after a truck accident, the trucking company, the driver, the maintenance crew, the loading and cargo company, and even the parts manufacturers could be held responsible for a negligent act that led to the accident. An experienced Paterson, New Jersey truck accident lawyer can help you determine all parties who should be held accountable for your accident.

In New Jersey, the statute of limitations, or the time frame you have to file your lawsuit for compensation, is two years from the date of the accident.

Every case is unique and different. However, your best chance of success and receiving maximum compensation is by contacting an expert truck accident attorney.

No! You should never sign anything the insurance company offers, or anything at all, for that matter, without first talking it over with your truck accident lawyers. If you do, you could sign away your right to more compensation.

Having a police report is an essential aid in seeking your maximum possible compensation. It can also be a vital tool for helping you recall the details of your accident, as you will need to tell your story multiple times throughout the case. While we pursue compensation for your injuries, it will be crucial to keep everything consistent, and a police report can serve as your best point of reference.

The negotiations process is typically a delicate back-and-forth between our firm and the insurance company of the other party involved in your accident. Once we’ve reviewed every detail of your case, we will add up your losses to calculate a settlement demand. We will then begin negotiations with the insurance company on your behalf until we agree on a fair amount.

Many truck accident claims don’t proceed to court because they get resolved through negotiations between the involved parties before reaching that point. However, a trial can become necessary if the opposing parties cannot settle on a fair amount.
