Car Accidents

If you have been injured in a car accident through the fault of another driver, you need an aggressive and proven legal team in your corner.  Hiring the right team of attorneys is paramount to attaining the best result possible.

At Schiller McMahon, our attorneys work 24/7/365 to ensure that maximum compensation is achieved for our clients.  We understand that victims of these unfortunately accidents often experience permanent injuries which have the potential to significant alter their quality of life.  That understanding drives us to succeed on behalf of our clients.

Our firm is comprised of two former Assistant Prosecutors with unparalleled trial experience and proven results.  We spent years building cases against violent criminals, many of which resulted in convictions handed down by a jury with the highest burden of proof in the legal system.  Alternatively, faced with the overwhelming evidence against them through comprehensive investigations, many defendants entered guilty pleas in order to avoid harsher sentences.  Over the past several years in private practice, our attorneys have used their experience as prosecutors to build cases against negligent drivers to achieve significant results for our clients who have been injured in car accidents.

As opposed to criminal acts, where an accused is brought to justice through criminal penalties, the only recourse available to car accident victims is monetary compensation.  While we realize that monetary relief does not always bring negligent drivers to justice, it does provide victims with the opportunity to move forward with their lives.  In New Jersey, victims of car accidents are entitled by law to recover monetary damages for pain and suffering, medical expenses, and loss of income resulting from a negligent driver’s operation of his/her vehicle.  Insurance companies are normally obligated to provide compensation in these situations; however, these companies do not settle easily as their interests are adverse to car accident victims.

If you have been injured in a car accident, be aware that time is of the essence.  In some instances, you may only have 90 days to file notice of your claim in order to preserve your right to file a lawsuit.   Also, key evidence which could be used to help prove your case is often lost or destroyed if it is not secured immediately.

At Schiller McMahon, we provide free initial consultations at our office to discuss your case.  Contact our firm today to schedule an appointment with one of our New Jersey Car Accident Injury Attorneys.
