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.

Getting Compensated For Your Injuries

American law was among the first in the world to embrace the concept of personal injury torts, whereby an injured person is legally entitled to seek damages for their injuries. If a person, business or other entity causes harm to another, the victim has a right to compensation.

The way that the law has been set up in New Jersey, victims can attempt to seek a monetary figure that, as best as possible, compensates them for their injury. The purpose of compensation is not to make a person rich, but to compensate a person for the full extent of change an injury has caused in their life. Areas in which claims for compensation can be made include: medical expenses, wage losses, pain and suffering, and lost earning capacity. It is important to properly evaluate each injury claim with an attorney so they can help you express the full impact the injury has had on your life.

Why Would I have to File to Claim?

When you file a personal injury claim, it’s done to compensate for the effects of an injury you may have received. But how do you know if your injury qualifies for a claim? There are about 3.3 million emergency room visits annually in New Jersey, not everyone who gets hurt is entitled to make a claim.
The way New Jersey law is set-up, people who have been permanently injured as a result of another individual, corporation, or any other entities’ actions are allowed to file a claim against them or their insurance company. What constitutes a “permanent” injury varies, but if the affected areas are ligaments, bones, or muscle tissue, all could be considered “permanent” depending on the significance of the injury.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Because of the frequency in which they unfortunately occur, there is a significant amount of legal rules dictating how auto accident injury victims receive compensation for their injuries. PIP (Personal Injury Protection) was set up by the New Jersey legislature starting in the 1970’s and further strengthened in the 1990’s, allowing people who have been injured in an automobile accident to make a claim for their injuries through auto insurance.

The best way to successfully make your claim, though, is to prove fault first if the other driver was the cause of your accident. That way, if they are proven to be at fault in the accident, they will be liable for any of your damages sustained.

Slip, Trip and Fall Injuries

This is something that any property owner must know; if your place of business is open, it must be safe from any unnecessary issues which could pose a danger. Every place that is open to patrons must be safe for them to be there. This is cemented into New Jersey law, a business owner is required to perform regular maintenance on the structures they possess. Improper maintenance is a major issue, for whatever reason, a lot of proprietors simply don’t want to invest money into repairs and fixes. But, a few hundred dollars saved here or there can lead to BIG problems down the road, as the structure deteriorates faster and potentially becomes unsafe.

Other Types of Injuries

However an injury occurs, if it was caused by the actions of another then the victim has a legal right to seek compensation for their injuries. For these types of catastrophic injuries, seeking legal representation could be the victim’s best option. Proving liability for different injuries involves the same standards no matter what type of injury case it is; fault must be established first and liability will determine who is responsible.
