Experienced Morris County Lawyers Assist Victims of Auto Accidents

Established New Jersey firm obtains compensation for people injured in crashes

As the most densely populated state in the country, New Jersey is known for its busy roads and aggressive drivers. Unfortunately, these factors and others lead to harmful auto accidents throughout the state. At Helfand & Associates in Whippany, our attorneys deliver comprehensive legal assistance to clients who have been injured in car crashes and other types of vehicle collisions. Our firm’s lawyers have 75 years of combined experience working on behalf of clients in Morris, Sussex, Essex and Middlesex counties. We know how difficult it is to deal with insurance companies and meet mounting expenses while recovering from an injury. Nothing can undo the physical and emotional trauma associated with a car crash, but our accomplished lawyers maximize your chance to collect the monetary compensation you are entitled to.

Knowledgeable advocates handle all types of vehicle collision litigation

If you have been hurt in a vehicle accident, quick action might be necessary to preserve evidence and maximize the likelihood of a successful outcome. We provide effective counsel for all types of related legal matters, including:

  • Insurance claims — Depending on the type of auto insurance policy that you have, you might be required to file a claim with your insurance company to collect payment for your injury. If you have a traditional fault policy or suffered a serious injury specified under New Jersey law, you might be eligible to seek compensation in a lawsuit or from the carrier for the driver at fault. We conduct a thorough review of the situation and advise clients on the best way to proceed.
  • Motorcycle crashes — On New Jersey’s congested roads, car and truck drivers frequently fail to recognize the rights of motorcycle riders. If you have been hurt in a collision while riding, we press your case against the negligent defendants.
  • Accidents involving pedestrians — People who are struck by a truck or car while walking can face a long physical ordeal. In cases involving pedestrian accidents, we prepare a thorough argument addressing the costs incurred by victims and their families.

Starting with a free initial consultation, our personal injury lawyers will assess the available facts and give you informed guidance on how to proceed.

Whippany firm holds negligent truck drivers and owners accountable

Crashes involving large commercial vehicles require special assistance from an experienced litigator. Our attorneys determine if regulations on speed, load weight or driver rest were violated when investigating the cause of the crash. Many different individuals and companies can contribute to a truck collision, including drivers, fleet owners, manufacturers and businesses that contracted the vehicle to perform a job. We can break down exactly where the problems occurred and take action against each potentially liable party.
