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.

United States Personal Injury Law

Personal Injury law in the United States is built upon the idea that if a person or business is careless in causing an injury or damages, that person or entity is responsible for the injuries and their damages incurred. No matter if it is a slip and fall case, an auto accident, or product liability action, the fundamental concept is the same. Personal Injury cases are filed to attempt to compensate the victim for what they have lost. The law recognizes that a person has been injured and cannot be made the same before their injury and allows them to make a claim for an injury for damages. Some of the damages which are allowed to be claimed include; past out-of-pocket medical expenses, wage and earning losses, pain and suffering, future hospital and medical expenses, loss of earn capacity and future pain and suffering due to the injury.

Does Hiring an Attorney 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

A solid legal foundation for dealing with automobile accident injuries is a must given how frequently they occur in the United States. There are on average 2.9 million injury cases every single year, and car accidents are a major reason why. New Jersey has devoted a specific chapter of Personal Injury Law for automobile accidents, dictating how benefits are paid out and by whom. Personal Injury lawyers that work within this system can help ensure that their clients get all the benefits available. Compensation may be possible through the PIP (personal injury protection) protocols, depending on the injury. But, in order to receive compensation, fault for the accident first must be proven.

Slip, Trip and Fall Injuries

Property owners should be cognizant of the potential dangers that a slip and fall event poses. When constructing any building or structure where people are expected to be, it must be safe for them to traverse the location without any danger. Unsafe conditions can be caused by improper maintenance as well, with a property owner leaving necessary repairs incomplete that renders the area unsafe. This includes seasonal issues like snow or ice. If a victim falls on a property due to unsafe conditions and is injured, they have a right to make a claim against whoever is responsible for maintaining that property.

Other Types of Injuries

The can be a proclivity of other injuries which qualify for a legal claim, some of which do not fall within a predefined category. There’s too many ways that a person or entity can injure another to count, from physical fist-fights to defective and faulty products. For victims who’ve suffered these types of catastrophic injuries, a lawyer might be able to help you get your medical care paid for.

More Information About Personal Injury Law

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.
