Moving Forward With Your Life

Car accidents are always traumatic. No attorney can undo the past or take away your pain. But a capable law office can help you to get the compensation you need to move on with your life. Contact us here at Rutter Mills if we can help in any way. We’re available 24/7, and we never charge for consultations. A Gloucester County car accident lawyer is standing by ready to advocate for you.

Following a car accident, your safety and the well-being of your passengers should be your priority. However, if the accident was the fault of another driver, there are important steps to take. By doing so, you can ensure your legal claim is protected. They include:

  • Seek medical treatment. You must treat the injuries resulting from a motor vehicle crash. If you fail to seek treatment, your condition could get worse. This is bad for your health and your injury claim, as the negligent driver could claim your injuries are partially your fault.
  • Call law enforcement. Having the police on the scene could be beneficial to your claim, especially if the other driver admits fault when making their official statement. However, reporting an accident is also mandatory under state law when an injury is involved.
  • Do not admit wrongdoing. Even if you feel responsible for a crash, never admit fault. The concept of legal liability in a car accident is a complex matter that should be left to a Gloucester County car accident lawyer. Anything you say at the scene of the crash could be held against you at trial.
  • Contact your insurance. Your policy requires you to report your accident to your carrier. If you fail to do so, they could deny your claim.
  • Do not speak to the other driver’s insurance. While you must speak with your carrier, you should never talk to the other driver’s insurance company. Anything you say could be used against you at trial or taken out of context.

In most cases you have two years to file a claim. That may seem like a long time, but conducting an investigation, getting witness statements, and other key elements will take time. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can get your case closer to a resolution.

When you work with a Gloucester County car accident lawyer from Rutter Mills, you do so knowing that you will never owe us a fee unless we are successful in your case. We operate on a contingency basis, meaning we only earn a fee if we recover money for you.

To speak with an experienced attorney about your case, call Rutter Mills today. We look forward to speaking with you about your case during your free, no-obligation initial consultation.

I wish I had called Rutter Mills from the beginning. I tried to deal with the insurance company myself, big mistake. Adam Lotkin and his paralegal Ruth Simmons were amazing. They walked me through the process and got me a settlement almost ten times the offer from the insurance company. Trust Rutter Mills, you won't be disappointed!

Dorian F.

Joe Young and Kathy Saunders were the absolute best. They kept me informed and properly communicated all information with me in a timely manner. They also were able to get me the amount I requested without going back and forth with me. They were a true pleasure to work with and for this reason I will continue to do business with Rutter Mills.
