In the aftermath of a car accident, your adrenalin could be so high that you don't realize you have any aches and pains. You may decline to take an ambulance to the hospital in order to have a doctor check you out, which could end up being a mistake.
The pain and inconvenience of a car accident may be just beginning as emergency responders treat you on the scene or transport you to a New Jersey hospital. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may be looking at thousands of dollars in medical bills, lost wages and serious financial struggles. Since New Jersey is a no-fault insurance state, you file a claim with your own insurer.
