Personal Injury Legal Representation

        Nobody truly understands what it’s like to deal with the burden of an injury unless you’ve gone through it yourself. It can be a life-altering, traumatic experience that results in daily pain and suffering. The simple, thoughtless actions of another can leave a person having to deal with physical conditions that render them unable to work, and thus support their family. That’s why, when you get hurt, filing a personal injury claim could be your best course of action to express and receive compensation for your injuries.

Personal Injury Law for South Jersey

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.

The Ways That an Injury Attorney Can Help

Tort law is what governs how Personal Injury Claims work, meaning that it was specifically set up to address a “civil wrong” that caused losses or suffering to another person. A personal injury tort is separate from the criminal justice system, meaning that they are handled on a “civil” level (i.e., prison time and criminal punishment is not possible). What they deal with are people who have caused harm to another individual due to negligence. It’s up to the lawyer handling the claim to legally prove that the action or inaction of one of the persons, corporation, or any other entity was the legally recognizable cause of the victim’s injury. Should they successfully demonstrate this, the victim who has suffered the injury then has the legal right to pursue a recovery for their losses and damages through a personal injury tort claim.

More Information About Personal Injury Law

Besides the undue burden of pain and suffering incurred, getting injured can be very damaging economically as it leaves a person unable to work or work at full capacity. The average incapacitating injury causes over $70,000 in economic damages to a victim. But, it’s important to know that if you’ve been hurt you could have the right to seek a recovery for your damages. That’s why, before undergoing a personal injury case, we recommend taking some time to read about what you can expect if you decide to pursue your claim.
