Personal Injury Legal Representation

        With an injury, it can take only an instant to alter one’s life. A simple accident can result in months of difficulties dealing with an injury. Nobody should have to live with daily pain and suffering. Being hurt is an undue burden that few people truly understand until they have gone through it themselves. That’s why, if you’ve been hurt, it’s good to consider if a legal action could be right for you. Talking with an attorney can help you understand what your options may be.

Personal Injury Law in New Jersey

Although rules differ from state to state, South Jersey is much like the rest of America in providing injured victims with the right to seek monetary compensation for their injuries through a personal injury tort case. Tort cases are different from criminal trials that you so often see on TV, as a tort will attempt to rectify a civil wrong committed by one person, business or entity against another individual. New Jersey’s legal system recognizes that, should someone cause harm to another, they can be found legally liable for those injuries that they inflicted. When someone is found liable for the injuries of another person, the victim has a right to seek monetary for the damages related to the accident. There are several areas in which a victim has a right to claim damages, including, but not limited to; medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and lost earning capacity.

Does Hiring an Attorney Make a Difference?

While it is possible for one to represent themselves in a personal injury claim, statistics have shown that the benefits of hiring an attorney are quantifiable. For personal injury claims, those who sought the representation of an attorney received substantially higher gross recoveries. That means that for those who did use an attorney, their recovery was likely significantly less than if they had legal representation. A smaller recovery may not fully cover economic losses, lost wages and medical costs. The effect that an attorney has in getting compensation for injuries is well-founded in what the facts show, especially when insurance companies are involved.

Personal Injury Civil Trials

A civil case for which a jury is involved is generally a dispute between two or more parties that does not involve a criminal matter and is not a dispute between family members regarding divorce or child custody. In family matters, a judge handles the case without a jury. In a civil matter, in order for a plaintiff to win a case, it is only necessary for the plaintiff to prove his or her case by a preponderance of the evidence or in some cases by clear and convincing evidence.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Talking to a lawyer after you have been injured in a car accident is usually a good idea. States like New Jersey have Personal Injury Protection benefits that can help you get your medical care paid for and make sure you aren’t stuck with huge hospital bills. An attorney representing you on your behalf will also be able to demonstrate fault if your accident was caused due to the negligent actions of the other driver. Even when it seems very clear cut, many drivers are reluctant to admit they made a mistake and thus are a responsible as the cause of the accident.

Slip, Trip and Fall Injuries

You see it all the time, in businesses putting off a seemingly minor repair to save costs. Well, even the smallest of repairs are usually an absolute necessity due to safety concerns. New Jersey law is clear that any establishment that is open to the public must be clear and safe for them to traverse without any undue danger posed upon them. Putting off a quick fix or simply being negligent of one results in a less safe environment, and should someone get hurt in such a situation, it would be business owner who is responsible.

Other Types of Injuries

There does not need to be criminal charges filed in order to make a personal injury claim. A victim who has been hurt due to the actions or inactions of another, no matter what they were, has the legal right to seek a recovery for their damages. These types of catastrophic injuries carry the same weight as those hurt in any other manner. If an attorney can prove someone else was at fault for an injury, the victim should be able to obtain compensation.

Keep Yourself Informed

When you are participating in a personal injury claim, it’s important to stay informed throughout the process so you aren’t broadsided by something unexpected. Any injury can reap a big toll on an individual, with the average incapacitating injury causing over $70,000 in economic damages. Fortunately, there is a system in place to compensate individual for their losses. Here is a selection of articles we have made available on topics ranging from injury law and what you can expect from your case.
