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.

No one can turn back time, but if you are injured filing a personal injury claim through an attorney could be your best recourse to express and receive compensation. Nobody chooses to get injured, but if and when it happens, it’s to review your options should you decide to proceed with a claim.

New Jersey Personal Injury Law

New Jersey laws protect victims from the harmful actions of others through personal injury tort claims. A personal injury tort claim makes an accusation against another person or entity that they have caused an injury resulting in damages or losses. These damages and losses must be quantifiable to a court-of-law, or something that can be proven. There are several areas for which victims are allowed to make a claim for damages, including pain and suffering, medical expenses, and loss of wages (including in the future). If an attorney is successful in proving that the opposing party was at-fault for the victim’s injuries, the victim will have the right to make a claim for monetary compensation. Compensation isn’t given to make people rich, but instead to recognize that they have suffered a loss and compensate them for their damages. It’s important to disclose the full nature of how the injury occurred and its overall effects on the victim so that any attorney evaluating a case can properly assess the options available.

Getting Compensation For Your 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.

How Much of a Difference does an Attorney Make?

You’ve been hurt and are injured, but do you really need to retain the services of an attorney? The benefits of hiring a lawyer are proven, especially in personal injury claims. For injured people who obtained an attorney to represent their claim, statistics have shown that they received substantially higher gross recoveries. For those who chose not to have an attorney represent them on their claim, they generally received significantly smaller recoveries than if they had a lawyer. They might not have been able to fully cover lost wages, economic losses, and medical expenses. The effect that a lawyer has in receiving compensation for injuries is quantifiable and well-founded, especially when handling insurance companies.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

17,589 automobile accident occur in the United States every single day, each one potentially causing significant hard ship due to an injury. Because of this ongoing issue, New Jersey has instituted PIP (Personal Injury Protection) programs for drivers when they purchase auto insurance. This specifies the way that fault is determined and how benefits are paid out. After an accident, a lawyer is sometimes necessary just to help deal with insurance companies, as few people fully understand the intricacies of how PIP works.

Slip, Trip and Fall Injuries

For a business owner, they can save a lot of money by avoiding fixes and repairs. But, eventually, it will catch up to them as unsafe conditions arise leading to an injury. Premises liability refers to the responsibility proprietors have to upkeep and maintain an establishment they own that is open to the public. If they fail to do so, it is usually only a matter of time before a person is hurt in some way. It could be a minor injury at first, but if not addressed, that likely portends something more serious. If a person does get seriously injured as a result of a business owner’s negligence, the business owner would be liable for any damages that person sustained.

Other Types of Injuries

Injury civil cases for non-car-accident or slip-and-fall injuries (those with pre-established insurance systems that dictate compensation) follow the same standards of liability. It does not matter if the person or entity who caused the injuries was charged with a crime or not; if someone causes harm to another individual, whether via a physical fight or through a negligent act, they are responsible for the damages they caused.

Keep Yourself Informed

Before you embark on filing your claim, you might want to take some time and read about what you can expect once it gets underway. Filing a claim can be a long, complicated process. First, fault must be declared before any of the forms of compensation can be decided. It’s good to take a moment and read about what the norm is for most personal injury claims.
