Personal Injury Legal Representation

        No one wants to get hurt. Forget what some people say about “big-pay-days” and the potential for an injury settlement, being injured is not about the money. Being injured means living with constant, daily pain and the raw, emotional struggles of coping with a physical loss. Our lives revolve around a fragile symbiosis balancing several acts at once; remove or infringe on just one of them and everything else is affected. What happens when you could possibly need surgery, or miss significant time from work due to an injury? These are questions that no one wants to have to answer.

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 best to review your options should you decide to proceed with a claim.

Getting Compensation for Your Injuries

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.

The Types of Injuries That Qualify

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

New Jersey’s legal system through which auto accident injury claims are handled is called PIP (Personal Injury Protection). PIP allows people who have been injured in an automobile accident to claim their medical costs related to their injuries and have them paid through auto insurance. What options are available specifically depend on what type of insurance plan you have. When you file a claim through PIP, a personal injury lawyer who has experience in auto accident law is your best option to make sure you get all your benefits available.

Slip, Trip and Fall Injuries

Slip, trip and falls are something that is a hazard that all business owners should be aware of when constructing and planning any building. If a property is open to foot traffic, then the law says it should be safe for people to be there. When there are unsafe conditions that could lead to an injury, it is the responsibility of the business owner to fix them. No matter if it is a crumbling curb or ice and snow, hazards must be dealt with in a timely fashion. While a dangerous situation can seem obvious to some, once it has been cleared or fixed it can be difficult to prove such a scene existed. Talking with a personal injury lawyer knowledgeable in slip and fall law can help make sure you can prove exactly what happened and why.

Other Types of Injuries

Injury victims who were hurt due to another person’s actions have rights, no matter if they were injured by them directly or indirectly. It doesn’t have to be a Slip & Fall or Car Accident to qualify, as long as the lawyer is able to establish that fault lies with the other party, they can have them found to be legally responsible (and thus liable for damages) for any injuries the victims has sustained.

Keep Yourself Informed

Besides the undue burden of pain and suffering incurred, getting injured can be very damaging economically as it leaves a person unable to work or work at full capacity. The average incapacitating injury causes over $70,000 in economic damages to a victim. But, it’s important to know that if you’ve been hurt you could have the right to seek a recovery for your damages. That’s why, before undergoing a personal injury case, we recommend taking some time to read about what you can expect if you decide to pursue your claim.
