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 Compensation For My Injuries

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. attempted first to give tort laws in the United States a coherent structure in the 1880’s, and ever since victims of the negligent actions of others have had a right to seek compensation for their injuries. Personal Injury torts attempt to right a civil wrong, whereby someone causes harm, losses, or suffering to another individual resulting in a legal liability to the person who caused those issues. Victims have a right to seek compensation for their injuries, no matter if it is a slip and fall, automobile accident, or medical malpractice case. Areas in which victims are entitled to make claims for compensation include: pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost earning capacity, future medical expenses and wage losses.

Does Making a Claim Mean I have to Go to Court?

Not necessarily. Even though you may file a personal injury claim, the majority are actually settled out of court. It is possible for the claim to end up in front of a judge and jury if a settlement is not agreed upon. But, settling does not mean that the final settlement figure is lower than it would be had the case went to trial. The settlement figure is typically based upon the expectations of each party and drawn from negotiations between the attorney and the insurance company’s representatives.

But, you can’t compare the efficacy of going to trial versus settling without taking into account all the time, money, and stress that’s involved for each side in going to trial. Because of that, it’s usually more ideal if the matter is negotiated into a settlement and avoid going to a trial. While this is in general terms, we should note that if we feel going to trial is the best option for our clients, we are prepared to do so. John Morelli is actually a certified civil trial attorney and has had great success in pursuing claims in front of a jury.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Personal injury claims for automobile accidents are common due to the frequency which they occur in this country. American roads suffer on average 11.4 road deaths per 100,000 people, an alarming number. One of the reasons for this is because drivers make mistakes, and human error is by far the leading cause of all accidents. Should you suffer an injury while in an auto accident in the state of New Jersey, you could be able to seek a claim through New Jersey’s PIP (Personal Injury Protection) program. Doing so can help get your medical care paid for.

Slip, Trip and Fall Injuries

Slip and falls are a major hazard for businesses and owners, as it’s something that they should aware of during the construction and planning of any building. If a business is open, wherever people go, it must be safe for them to be there. If conditions are unsafe and leads to an injury, that is the fault of the property owner for their failure to ensure adequate safety. There are numerous ways in which a property can be rendered unsafe, such as a crumbling curb or step or a failure to clear ice or snow. Black ice spots are a particular hazard during wintertime, but property owners are supposed to know that they must salt and clear any ice that could be hazard. If someone were to slip and fall on the ice, it would be the fault of the property owner for their failure to clear away the hazard.

Other Types of Injuries

There are numerous ways that a person could be injured, but with personal injury law the premise is the same. No matter what the means were by which the injury was sustained, if an attorney can prove that it was the result of another person or entity’s actions, the victim should be able to pursue a legal recovery for their damages. Lawyers are an injury victim’s best option to successfully make a tort claim.
