The amount of money you might receive in a case varies. It is dependent upon the physical damages done to you and your property, as well as to the other vehicle involved. It is also dependent upon insurance types and the medical bills incurred. There is no one-size-fits-all compensation plan after an accident, which is why it is best to work with a New Jersey bicycle accident attorney who can calculate this number for you. Using their experience of the law, they will be able to estimate what you should be paid. Keep in mind, compensation is not only for immediate costs such as medical bills right after the accident. It’s also for future problems caused by the accident, such as continued physical therapy. Your lawyer will take all of this into consideration when estimating a number for you.

Your Case

The first step in any case is a consultation. You will sit down with your lawyer and lay out the facts of the accident. If you have evidence you have collected, it is helpful to bring it to this meeting. All of this information will give your lawyer a glimpse of your situation. They will let you know if you have a case or not. The basis for a case is that your accident was due to someone else’s negligent actions. So long as that can be proven, you should have a legal case. After the first consultation, an attorney will then conduct a very thorough investigation. They will use the information and evidence you provided to collect more evidence that backs your case, from witness statements to medical reports. With this information in hand, they will file a claim against the negligent party.

At this point, your path can divert into one of three options: settlement, negotiation, or trial. Most cases end with the negligent party offering a settlement. You can choose to accept the first offer, or you can choose to negotiate for more. If the other party is being unreasonable, then you can choose to take your case to court. Your lawyer will advise you on the best course of action. If you accept the settlement, then your case is complete. If you negotiate, then you may go back and forth a few more times with the other party until you settle on a fair number. Once that has been agreed upon, the case is done. If you choose to go to court, your lawyer will represent you and fight for the fair compensation that you were not offered.
