Personal Injury Legal Representation

        It can be difficult for many people to imagine themselves in such a situation, but in the matter of an instant an injury can have devastating, life-altering effects on a person. The simple careless actions of another can leave you in daily pain, with physical injuries that dramatically affect your ability to live your life. That’s why, if you’ve been hurt, it might be a good idea to file a personal injury claim to receive compensation for the injuries you suffered.

Getting Compensation For Your Injuries

New Jersey tort law protects personal injury victims by giving them a legal voice. Injury tort claims accuse one person or entity of causing harm against another individual through their actions or inactions. The cause can be intentional or because of negligence, but if someone was hurt, the person who caused those injuries is legally responsible for any of the damages they created. Tort laws define injuring another person as a Civil Wrong which can be rectified (as best as possible) through a personal injury claim for monetary compensation.

Claims for compensation can be made for several different areas of damages suffered, including medical expenses, lost wages, loss of earning potential, and pain and suffering. The law recognizes that a persona has suffered a loss at the hands of another, and rewards compensation not to get people rich but compensate a victim for what they have lost. It’s important to discuss with your attorney the full nature of the circumstances that caused the injury so they can fully evaluate what your options may be.

Claims for Injured Family Members and Loved Ones

Should a person get hurt, that injury can subsequently have a negative impact on others, especially their family. New Jersey has specifically set up “Loss of Consortium” claims to deal with these types of problems, whereby the family members of an injured person can legally express their losses. These types of claims can be made on the basis of loss of affection and comfort, including sexual relations, as a result of the injury to a family member.

Their family members, who were not involved in that accident, but can demonstrate that they were affected by the injured person’s absence, they can also file a “Loss of Consortium” claim, too.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Getting into a car accident can turn a normal day into a prolonged struggle. If you are injured in an automobile accident, it might not give you much solace to know that you aren’t alone. American roads are particularly dangerous (11.4 road deaths per 100,000 people versus 5.5 in Europe), with 2.9 million injury cases filed each year. The laws for auto accidents are different than other facets of personal injury law due to the system that states like New Jersey have in place which are meant to specifically dictate how accident claims are handled. If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, it’s important that you retain an attorney who knows how to fight insurance companies and makes sure you aren’t left with any out-of-pocket expenses. There’s more than just getting your car fixed at stake.

Slip, Trip and Fall Injuries

An attorney handling a slip and fall case has a lot of tools at their disposal. First, if they are available, any security tapes will be analyzed. The work history of the site of the accident will be looked at. Were any necessary repairs skipped over? Was the dangerous area reported before? The lawyer can seek out witnesses and retain a sworn deposition testimony from them, which will be entered into evidence and must be taken into consideration. Most property owners are reluctant to cooperate, so it’s important to have legal representation for these types of matters.

Other Types of Injuries

For any type of catastrophic injury, a person can suffer damages that affect their ability to lead their life normally. If those injuries were caused by the actions, inactions or negligence of another party, then the victim has the right to make a personal injury claim with an attorney. The same rights apply as in other Tort cases involving injuries, although dealing with insurance may be different due to absence of a predefined PIP payout structure.

Keep Yourself Informed

Injuries can cause havoc on a person’s life. The average incapacitating injury incurs $70,000 in economic damages alone to a victim. Knowing exactly what your options may be is difficult unless you are familiar with New Jersey’s tort rules. That’s why, it’s good to take some time and read about what to expect once you file your claim. While it can seem daunting at first, the process of filing a personal injury claim could be your best outlet.
