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.

The Unseen Burden of an Injury

Nobody likes getting hurt. For those out there who derisively scoff when someone has been injured, thinking that they must be “lucky” to have the opportunity to receive a settlement for their injuries, I offer to let them live in their shoes for a day. Let them deal with the constant, throbbing pains and the emotional struggles. Let them go through surgery, recovery, and the time lost at work and with their family. In fact, I’m sure that any injured person would trade places just to not have to endure what they went through.

But, no one can turn back time. When someone gets injured, filing a personal injury claim can be their best recourse to express and receive compensation. Nobody chooses to get injured, but when it does happen it’s best they review what their options may be should they then decide to proceed with a personal injury claim.

What Type of Injuries are Covered?

In 2010 there were over 3.3 million emergency room visits in New Jersey. Not everyone who has been hurt is entitled to make a claim. Personal Injury Claims are made on the basis of the effects of the injury itself. The law in New Jersey allows for those who have been permanently injured as a result of someone else’s negligence to file a claim against those who have caused the injury. What constitutes a “permanent injury” is defined under the law to mean a body part, organ or system that has not healed to function normally and will not heal to function normally with further treatment.

Personal Injury Law in New Jersey

American personal injury law is based upon the basic idea that if a person or business is careless or negligent in causing an injury or other damages, the careless person or business entity is responsible for the damages and injuries caused. It is this fundamental concept that is at the heart of all personal injury law whether it is an auto accident case, a slip and fall case, a medical malpractice case or product liability action.

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.

In considering what a person’s loss is as a result of an injury and thus what the reasonable compensation would be, the law considers many factors. Among the damages often considered are:
a) Past hospital, medical, chiropractic, prescriptions and other out-of-pocket expenses;
b) Past wage or earnings loss;
c) Past pain and suffering;
d) Future hospital, medical, chiropractic, prescriptions and other out-of-pocket expenses;
e) Future loss of earning capacity; and
f) Future pain and suffering.

Personal injury lawyers can help ensure that their clients receive the maximum amount of damages recoverable by law. Some of the items for which injured parties are legally entitled to compensation include past and future lost wages; past and future medical expenses; damages for both physical and emotional pain and suffering, again both past and present; and damages for disfigurement.

Sometimes, a close family member of the injured person, such as his or her spouse, may also be entitled to damages, often referred to "loss of consortium damages," which are intended to compensate the loved one for the loss of the injured party's services and companionship.
