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.

New Jersey Personal Injury Law

United States personal injury laws are based upon the basic premise that if a person, business, or any other entity is careless, negligent, or intentional in causing harm, injury, or damages to another individual, the inflicting party is thus responsible for the damages they caused. Tort rules see this as rectifying a civil wrong, whereby someone has suffered a loss and thus may not be the same person they were before the injury. Courts have found that the best way to address these issues is through a form of monetary compensation, which, as best as possible, is designed to reimburse a person for the losses they suffered from an injury. A victim is allowed to make an injury claim for compensation based on several different criteria, including lost wages, pain and suffering, medical expenses, and loss of earning capacity.

The Types of Injuries That Qualify

Many people question, why would you have to ever file a personal injury claim? The reason that these claims are done is to help compensate someone for the results of an injury. Well, New Jersey handles about 3.3 million emergency room visits a year, but not everyone who has been hurt is entitled to make a claim for injury compensation But, what types of injuries qualify for a personal injury claim?. The law allows for someone who has been “permanently” injured as a result of another person’s negligent actions to then file a claim against them or their insurance company to receive compensation. But, exactly what qualifies as a “permanent” injury? In general, if the areas which have been injured involve ligaments, bones or muscle tissue, all may be considered “permanent” within New Jersey state guidelines.

Keep Yourself Informed

If you are going to file a personal injury claim with an attorney, it’s a good idea to keep yourself informed on what the process involves. Injuries can be a truly life-altering experience, with the average incapacitating injury causing over $70,000 in economic damages. Because they affect so many different areas, from monetary compensation to medical care to wage losses, the personal injury system in New Jersey can appear infinitely complex to those unfamiliar with it. That’s why it’s best to take a minute and read about what you can expect once you file your claim.
