Personal Injury Legal Representation


        If you or a loved one has been injured, it can be a difficult and traumatic situation for all those affected. Everyone has trouble navigating the litany of legal, employment and insurance issues that may arise from such an unexpected incident. And unfortunately, the State of New Jersey has some of the most restrictive laws in regard to how auto-insurance companies are able to deny coverage and care to those who are in legitimate need, adding to the burden. That is why, with today’s complicated legal world, it is important to have an attorney fighting for you.

Personal Injury Laws in South Jersey

The laws in New Jersey have been set up to protect injured victims from the carelessness and negligence of others. Causing undue harm to another individual, while not a criminal act, can result in a personal injury tort case. Tort claims are handled differently than the criminal cases you see in TV and movies, A tort makes a claim that a person or entity’s actions or inactions have led to the harm of another, resulting in damages and losses to the victim.

The legal system recognizes this as a civil wrong, allowing an injured person to make a claim for their losses through a form of monetary compensation. Compensation isn’t intended to get people rich, but instead to remunerate them for any of the losses and damages they sustained. There are many areas in which a victim is legally recognized to be able to make a personal injury claim, including; pain and suffering, medical expenses, and lost wages. All cases are different, so it’s important that you inform your attorney about the full nature of the circumstances involved in causing the injury.

Does Making a Claim Mean I Have to Go to Court?

Not necessarily. Even though you may file a personal injury claim, the majority are actually settled out of court. It is possible for the claim to end up in front of a judge and jury if a settlement is not agreed upon. But, settling does not mean that the final settlement figure is lower than it would be had the case went to trial. The settlement figure is typically based upon the expectations of each party and drawn from negotiations between the attorney and the insurance company’s representatives. But, you can’t compare the efficacy of going to trial versus settling without taking into account all the time, money, and stress that’s involved for each side in going to trial. Because of that, it’s usually more ideal if the matter is negotiated into a settlement and avoid going to a trial. While this is in general terms, we should note that if we feel going to trial is the best option for our clients, we are prepared to do so. John Morelli is actually a certified civil trial attorney and has had great success in pursuing claims in front of a jury.

Auto Accidents and Personal Injury Law

Motor vehicle accidents cause the loss of time, property, health and even life. Such accidents occur because of elements including driver error, negligence, manufacturing defects and dangerous weather. No matter what the specific cause or result, a crash can turn a normal day into a prolonged struggle.

For those living in New Jersey, the situation has changed dramatically in the past decade, with Auto Insurance Companies gaining more control of those injured in auto accidents as a result of another’s negligence. The introduction of the “Verbal Threshold”, a law passed by the state in 1999, puts an ever-increasing burden on the injured in regards to the types of care they are able to receive. Without an attorney representing you, it can be much more difficult to get the treatments that you need.

If There is No Recovery, There is No Fee

When a personal injury attorney first undertakes to represent a client relative to a potential personal injury claim where the client or a family member has been injured or killed as the result of the negligence of another, many considerations face that attorney. First, it is critical that the attorney gather as many facts as possible from the victim or the family regarding all of the events that were related to the accident, including what happened, the names and addresses of witnesses, photographs and the like. It is important to know that personal injury claims can be handled on a contingency fee basis. This means that if there is no recovery, no fee is due.

Keep Yourself Informed

I like to tell my clients that an informed person is an empowered one. That’s why I’d like to make available additional resources so you can have a good idea about what you should expect once you begin your personal injury case. There are a litany of issues related to Personal Injury Law, it’s not something I would expect anyone outside of an attorney to have knowledge of. Take some time before you start your case to sit down and read about what you can expect next.
