Personal Injury Legal Representation

        It can be difficult for many people to imagine themselves in such a situation, but in the matter of an instant an injury can have devastating, life-altering effects on a person. The simple careless actions of another can leave you in daily pain, with physical injuries that dramatically affect your ability to live your life. That’s why, if you’ve been hurt, it might be a good idea to file a personal injury claim to receive compensation for the injuries you suffered.

Getting Compensation for Your Injuries

Personal Injury law in the United States was originally steeped in the origins of British Common Law, it wasn’t until the 1880’s when a coherent system for torts was developed stateside. New Jersey now has a very detailed and unilateral legal system in which injury claims are handled. Personal Injury cases attempt to indemnify a victim for their injury through a monetary figure that, as best it possibly can, compensates them for the damages caused. An injury tort makes the claim that an individual or entity has caused harm to another person, resulting in a legal liability by that individual or entity for the injuries. Victims have a legal right to make claims for pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, and future loss of earning capacity.

No one can turn back time, but if you are injured filing a personal injury claim through an attorney could be your best recourse to express and receive compensation. Nobody chooses to get injured, but if and when it happens, it’s best to review your options should you decide to proceed with a claim.

Does Hiring An Attorney Really Make a Difference?

After you’ve been hurt, it can be a difficult call to make; do you now want to obtain the services of an attorney and move forward with a personal injury claim? Statistics have shown that the benefits of hiring an attorney far outweigh the risks of not having one. What this translates to, is for those who have been injured and sought to file a personal injury claim, those who retained an attorney were able to receive substantially higher gross recoveries. While filing a claim without a lawyer is not recommended, those who have done so generally receive significantly smaller recoveries that might not be able to fully cover lost wages and medical expenses. If you think you may need an attorney, the best bet would be to give one a call and have them assess your options. The effects that an attorney can have in receiving compensation are proven, especially when dealing with insurance companies.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Speaking with an attorney following an automobile accident injury is typically the right idea. You might not know it, but built into auto insurance in states like New Jersey is a clause called Personal Injury Protection (PIP), which dictates medical benefits for victims of auto injuries. Most people are unfamiliar with how PIP works, though, and might not be aware that they can get parts of their medical care paid for by making a claim through an attorney.

Slip, Trip and Fall Injuries

All business owners are aware of the dangers that a slip and fall on their property pose, it’s something that is usually taken into consideration when planning almost any structure. This isn’t done because proprietors are overwhelmingly concerned with the well-being of their patrons (although they may well be), but because they are responsible if anyone gets hurt there due to structural issues or negligent maintenance. This type of liability can be difficult to prove, as business owners are typically loth to cooperate and rarely turn over evidence that works against them. It’s best to talk to an attorney who has had success fighting Slip & Fall cases and demonstrating that they have an ability to get results.

Other Types of Injuries

Injuries come in all forms and sizes and are not restricted to automobile accidents. There doesn’t even need to be criminal charges filed against the Defendant in order to make a claim, only the ability for an attorney to establish them at fault. This could relate to people who were involved in a fist fight, or be as complex as a person sick from mold inhalation.

Stay Informed About New Jersey's Personal Injury Laws

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.
