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.

American Personal Injury Laws

When you’ve been hurt due to the actions of another, it’s important to know that you have legal rights. Personal Injury law recognizes that someone has been injured as a result of the actions or inactions of another and attempts to rectify a civil wrong. Through a personal injury tort, a victim can have the person who caused their injuries declared legally liable for any damages sustained. These cases are different from criminal trials, with a lower preponderance of evidence. Victims also have a right to seek monetary compensation for their injuries, which attempts to compensate for any losses suffered due to the injury. Victims can make personal injury claims based on several different criteria, including medical expenses, lost earning capacity, wage losses, pain and suffering, and any future medical expenses required.

Family Members Have Rights Too

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. So, if someone was hurt in an accident, they can file a personal injury claim. 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

When an attorney undertakes an auto accident injury case, his paralegal staff will act as the liaison between the victim and the insurance company. New Jersey has a system to handle car accident claims called PIP (Personal Injury Protection), which allows victims to claim medical costs related to their injuries and have a portion of it paid for by their auto insurance company. What options specifically available depend on the insurance plan purchased. Having an attorney and his paralegal look at your plan is the best way to make sure you’re getting the full PIP benefits available to you.

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

There is a wide array of other types of injuries which qualify, no matter the cause, whether from a physical altercation to a complicated issue of negligent maintenance. Should another party cause harm that results in damages to you, you could have a legal right to seek a recovery. Any type of injury can be catastrophic, dramatically changing one’s life in an instant. Talking with a personal injury lawyer could your best option.
