The financial losses and emotional toll an auto accident has on a victim are referred to as "damages." While New Jersey drivers are protected under PIP (Personal Injury Protection) insurance, this rarely covers all the victim's damages. Our car accident attorneys will review your case and determine the actual amount you should be compensated for. Your injury claim may include:

  • Property damage
  • Lost wages 
  • Future wages
  • Physical pain and emotional distress
  • Medical bills
  • Loss of life
  • Loss of companionship
  • Lost earning potential of the deceased

You Deserve Compensation For Your Injuries

We understand that an auto accident in any circumstance can be upsetting, but it can be even more traumatic if you have suffered a physical injury.  Even injuries that seem small initially can turn into significant long-term problems. Our car accident lawyers work with clients that have sustained all forms of personal injury after a car accident including...


Minor to severe lacerations caused by loose objects

Soft Tissue Injury

Damage to muscles, ligaments, and tendons

Head Injuries

Whiplash, concussions, and impact to the head and facial region

Chest Injuries

Bruises, contusions, and internal damage to the ribs and organs

Arm and Leg Injuries

Internal and external damage to the extremities

Receiving Appropriate Medical Assistance

Most importantly after a car accident, clients should obtain the medical care they need to recover. You should keep all health care reports and receipts for medical bills as they document your financial losses and need to be submitted to insurance. Our personal injury lawyers provide valuable assistance in keeping track of your expenses and calculating your long-term damages so you can focus on your health and recovery. 

Gathering Evidence Methods Of Building Your Case

To establish liability, our car accident attorneys will track down key evidence and thoroughly document your account of the incident and well as testimony from other eyewitnesses. We will review the police report, which determines who was at fault and whether the other driver was violating laws or regulations. For example, if a driver was under the influence, speeding, or surpassing hours of service, they may be facing criminal charges which help prove liability.

It is important to remember you do not have to wait for a resolution in criminal court to begin working on your civil personal injury case. Prosecuting a driver can take time, and you will want to get started on your claim right away. 

Accident Reconstruction

​In order to build the best case possible for our Hoboken clients, we may choose to perform our own accident reconstruction. While a police report will include details about the situation, we can go a step further and hire a third-party investigator to document the physical evidence at the crash site, such as skid marks and property damage.

Our firm has the substantial resources needed to build your car accident case and we do everything in our power to prove your claim. 

Truck and Motorcycle Accidents

The car accident lawyers at Dunne, Dunne & Cohen also represent clients throughout Hoboken and New Jersey who have been victims in a truck or motorcycle crash. While the legal proceedings for these cases are similar to other car accident cases, the victims often sustain more severe injuries and damages.
