What Should I Do If My Insurance Company Refuses to Pay After a New Jersey Car Crash?

Injured victims of New Jersey car crashes have the right to pursue financial compensation for many of the losses they have suffered. Unfortunately, it is common for insurance companies to deny claims or refuse to pay an adequate settlement. In such cases, the injured victim would be well-advised to research their legal options and to seek the counsel of a skilled attorney.

You should make sure that you have as much solid evidence as possible to back up your personal injury claim. Do you have medical records proving the injuries you have suffered? Did you request a copy of the police report that contains details that support your involvement in the crash? Do you have contact information for witnesses who saw the car accident?

When dealing with a New Jersey insurance company, it is important to take extensive notes of all statements that are made. Write down the details of every conversation you have with the insurance company and all of the questions you are asked. Throughout the process you should stay honest and concise. You should also never admit fault for a crash. If your claim is still denied, you may request a letter of explanation detailing their denial. If you disagree with their decision, you may reapply or file an appeal.
