Personal Injury Legal Representation

        In an instant, one’s life can be dramatically altered. A simple error or act of negligence by someone can cause devastating, long-lasting problems to another. Living with daily pain is an undue burden that no one should have to deal with, and it is difficult to truly understand unless you’ve gone through it yourself. When you’ve been hurt due to the actions of another, it’s a good idea to talk with an attorney and see what options you have.

Personal Injury Law in New Jersey

When you are dealing with the effects of an injury, it’s a common question to ask what your legal rights may be. It’s important to know that, when someone has been injured and hurt due to the actions (or inactions) of another, the person who is at fault is legally obligated to be responsible for any of the damages incurred to the victim. How this works in real life is that certain losses related to the injury can be claimed and remunerated.

Things such as medical expenses and loss of wages can be claimed as part of a personal injury tort case. Other areas that victims can claim include pain and suffering, emotional trauma, or any other areas affected by the injury. A personal injury tort claim seeks monetary compensation for these damages, as the law recognizes that an injury has caused a loss to an individual (defined legally as a Civil Wrong). But, it’s important to disclose the full nature of any injuries so that an attorney can properly evaluate each claim.

Getting Compensation for Injuries

The purpose of personal injury litigation is to compensate a person for what that person has lost. As the law recognizes that an injured victim has suffered an injury because of the negligence of another, the person physically cannot be made the same person as he or she was before the injury. The only way to compensate a person for their loss is try to arrive at a monetary figure that, as best as possible, compensates the injured victim for the losses suffered. The purpose of compensation is not to make a person rich, but simply to compensate an injured victim for the loss suffered. As the purpose is to compensate that particular injured victim for his or her loss, no two injuries are exactly alike. The impact an injury has had on each individual person will vary with that particular person. Thus, in properly evaluating a claim, it is important to know the nature and extent that the injury has affected the particular injured victim.

Injured Family Members

When someone is injured, their family could potentially have the right to also pursue a claim for a recovery as well. These are called “Loss of Consortium” claims, where a victim’s spouse or child joins in on the claim due to their injured loved one’s loss. Frequently an injury will affect not just those who suffer the physical consequences, but will have an emotional impact on those who were members of their family. The State of New Jersey created this system so that family members can legally pursue claims based on lost affection, including sexual relations, as a result of their family member’s injury.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

In the United States, a legal foundation for handling automobile accidents is an unfortunate necessity. With 11.4 road deaths per 100,000 people (compared with 5.5 in the European Union), American roads are some of the most dangerous in the world. Automobiles are a large reason there are 2.9 million injury cases every year. Because they are so common, a whole facet of personal injury law is devoted to car accidents and car accident victims. Personal injury lawyers who specialize in auto accidents can help get their client’s benefits paid for and seek compensation through New Jersey’s PIP system. Attorneys are also crucial in proving fault, as often times drivers will dispute as to who was at-fault in the accident.

Slip, Trip and Fall Injuries

For any property owner, they should be fully aware of the dangers that slip and falls present when constructing a building. When a property is open to patrons, the law states that there must be no impediments to their safety. If the property is unsafe, either through poor maintenance or a structural failure, it is the responsibility of the proprietor should anyone be injured due to these conditions. Should you get hurt due to slipping, tripping or falling on the property of another due to unsafe conditions, call and talk to an attorney to see what your options might be.

Other Types of Injuries

There are countless ways in which people can be injured due to the fault of another party. However it occurs, if you’ve been hurt it might be a good idea to talk to a lawyer about filing a claim. When you are involved in a catastrophic injury, seeking legal representation could be your best option to get compensated for your injuries. Talking to an attorney is often time the only way to know for sure if they are able to help you with your case.
