I have been a practicing personal injury lawyer in New Jersey for over twenty years. I knew Michael Maggiano by reputation and when I was involved in an automobile myself I went to him to handle my case. I learned that the reputation was well founded and he has an outstanding law firm, very efficient and professional. He and his staff were always available and helpful during every step of the process and the resultant settlement was excellent. I could not recommend Mr. Maggiano and his firm more highly. Thank you to all at Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi .

Nothing but praise for Maggiano, DiGirolamo, and Lizzi. I have never seen such a fantastic display of teamwork at all levels of the firm. (As an aisde, everyone one who works at the firm was extremely courteous and kind – character traits that one would not typically associate with a law firm. )

Furthermore, the legal results brought about by Mr. Maggiano’s tireless litigation efforts on our behalf were very fair and just. If you ever find yourself in a car accident, be sure to consult Maggiano, DiGirolamo, and Lizzi.

Get Medical Attention After Your Car Accident

Your first step after any kind of motor vehicle accident should be to get medical treatment. A medical professional can examine you, diagnose your injuries, and begin treatments.

Even if you do not feel injured, we recommend getting an evaluation. You may have internal injuries or symptoms that are masked by adrenaline from the accident.

Some injuries that may not be immediately apparent in the aftermath of a car accident include:

It is also possible, and understandable, for victims to experience psychological symptoms after a car accident, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Lack of enjoyment in daily activities and social interaction
  • Fear of driving
  • And more

A Diagnosis May Help Your Case

A diagnosis in your medical record that links your injuries to the accident may become useful evidence in your car accident case. It is important for you to follow your doctor’s recommendations and treatment protocol, both for your own health and to avoid any issues with the insurance company, who may question your lack of follow-up care.

Once you have seen your doctor or another medical professional, please call Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi P.C. so that we may evaluate your case at no cost or obligation to you.
