Are you a New York resident involved in an accident in New Jersey? Here is why you should bring a Hach & Rose, LLP New York attorney to fight in New Jersey. New Yorkers injured in New Jersey are often pressured to accept a “New Jersey discount,” don’t do it! Let our experienced attorneys get all the compensation you deserve. New Yorkers injured in New Jersey deserve full and fair compensation, not a “New Jersey discount.”
Accidents come in many different forms, involving various conditions, causes of the accident, and resulting damages. The varying circumstances in which an accident can occur – whether it be a car crash, trip, and fall, or construction accident – also include the location of the accident. Given the proximity to our neighbors across the river, thousands of New Yorkers are injured in New Jersey accidents yearly. The most common situation involves car accidents as New Yorkers frequently drive into and through New Jersey for travel, work, or to visit friends or family.
We are Licensed in Both New York and New Jersey
At Hach & Rose, LLP, we have personal injury attorneys licensed to practice in New York and New Jersey. Many of our clients have told us they prefer hiring a New York lawyer instead of venturing into an unfamiliar area to look for a “local” New Jersey lawyer. We strongly encourage New Yorkers to consult with a Hach & Rose, LLP attorney about their accident before crossing the river.
A common misconception among New Yorkers injured in New Jersey is that you must hire a local New Jersey lawyer to handle your case. On the contrary, you need to hire an attorney licensed to practice in New Jersey, not necessarily one based in New Jersey. This means New Yorkers can bring their New York attorneys to New Jersey as long as that attorney is licensed to practice law in New Jersey.
Hach & Rose, LLP‘s NJ-licensed attorneys are well-versed in New Jersey accident laws and have successfully represented many New Jersey accident victims. When considering legal help after an accident, you will find that you have many people and firms to choose from. The complexities and difficulties encountered following an out-of-state accident are why hiring a lawyer experienced in all areas of New Jersey accident law is essential.
Many New Yorkers are More Comfortable Having a New York Attorney
While excellent personal injury attorneys and law firms are based in New Jersey, many of our clients are more comfortable with having a New York-based lawyer in their corner. This is due to numerous reasons, such as unfamiliarity with New Jersey towns and court systems and certain individuals’ belief that “local lawyers” may be biased or not as aggressive in handling their claims against New Jersey defendants and insurance companies.
Our attorneys also understand how to measure damages when a New Yorker is injured properly. Due to the high cost of living in many NYC areas, we understand how a New Yorker may suffer greater financial damages when injured than our NJ neighbors. We reject that an individual injured in NJ should be entitled to less compensation than if the same accident occurred in NY. Insurance companies and even small-town NJ lawyers pressure injured New Yorkers to accept an “NJ discount” because their accident occurred in NJ.
You must choose a lawyer you can trust to handle your case after a New Jersey accident – whether it be a car crash, trip, and fall, construction accident, or some other type of harm. We highly recommend bringing your New York legal team when seeking justice in New Jersey.
Whether you wish to learn more about your rights after a New Jersey accident or are ready to move forward with your case, a Hach & Rose, LLP attorney can help.
You do not have to go to New Jersey alone.
I was injured in a car accident in New Jersey and was unsure how to find a lawyer because I live in New York City. I met with John Blyth from Hach and Rose and hired them for my case. John was with me every step of the way. He explained what to expect in a New Jersey lawsuit and always kept me updated on what was happening. I was very happy with my settlement and would recommend John and Hach & Rose, LLP to anyone injured in New Jersey.
