The Right to Pursue an Accident Claim
Whether you are traveling along the I-95 for half an hour or down Lawrence Road for five minutes, you can be involved in a car accident. While all car accidents may not be predictable, they are preventable. The most important fact to understand after you’ve been injured in a car crash in Mercer County is that you don’t have to face the challenges of recovery on your own. If your accident was caused by the recklessness or negligence of another driver or other party, you have the right to hold them accountable in civil court. By getting the money you need for recovery, you not only obtain justice for the harm you’ve suffered, but also as a means to protect your future. But how do you know you have a valid claim?
