Personal Injury Legal Representation

        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.

Getting Compensation for Your Injuries

Getting injured is a harrowing experience even for the toughest of people. Nobody wants to have their life interrupted due to the negligent actions of another person. That’s why, it’s good to know that New Jersey has laws in place which are meant to protect victims from the actions of others. Personal Injury law is built upon the basic premise that if a person, business, or any other entity causes an injury or other damages, the careless party is thus responsible for the damages caused.
Injury Facts and Statistics Haddon Heights New Jersey 08035
When a victim has someone found to be at fault for the cause of their injuries, the negligent party would then be considered legally liable for any damages. As part of assessing the overall toll of the damages, an injured person has a legal right to seek monetary compensation for their injuries. There are many areas for which a person is entitled to make an injury claim and seek compensation, including past medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of wages and earning capacity, and future medical expenses or costs.

How an Attorney Can Help

The personal injury system in place in the state of New Jersey allows for those who have been hurt as a result of another individual’s actions to seek compensation for their medical care, pain and suffering, and lost wages. But, in order to successfully pursue these claims, an experienced attorney is needed to wade through the litany of legal requirements. Being injured can be a traumatic experience, leaving no aspect of life unaffected. And a personal injury attorney will legally express those losses on your behalf, in the form of depositions and interrogatories, to make sure that you are properly compensated for your injuries.

Injured Family Members and Loved Ones

When someone gets seriously hurt, they and their family may have the right to then pursue a recovery. New Jersey has several areas of monetary concern upon which a personal injury claim for recovery can be based. Claims can be made for, but are not limited to, lost wages, lost earning capacity and cost of medical expenses. In the event of a victim’s death, their family would be entitled to then pursue what is called a wrongful death suit.
