Injury Law Firm
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.

Does a Personal Injury Claim Mean I have to go to Court?

The great majority of personal injury claims are actually settled out of court. That doesn’t mean that it’s impossible for the claim to end up in trial, that can happen if a settlement isn’t reached. When a settlement figure is agreed upon, that doesn’t mean that it would be lower had the claim gone to trial.

In fact, most studies show the figures are usually about the same. The settlement itself is based upon what each parties’ expectations for settlement would have been, that is how the sum is created. But, when considering trials versus settlements, you must take into account the time, money and aggravation spent going to trial. That’s why, for both sides, it’s usually a more agreeable outcome to have the matter negotiated into a settlement. While we are speaking in generalities, should our firm feel that going to trial is the best course of action for our clients, we are more than prepared to do so. John Morelli has had great success in pursuing personal injury claims in front of a jury, he is a certified trial attorney, a designation less than 2% of attorneys in New Jersey achieve.

Were the injury case to go to court, this matter would be handled in front through the Civil Court system.

The Difference Between Civil and Criminal Courts

A civil case for which a jury is involved is generally a dispute between two or more parties that does not involve a criminal matter and is not a dispute between family members regarding divorce or child custody. In family matters, a judge handles the case without a jury. In a civil matter, in order for a plaintiff to win a case, it is only necessary for the plaintiff to prove his or her case by a preponderance of the evidence or in some cases by clear and convincing evidence. The judge will explain the meaning of those terms to the jury.

In a criminal matter, the defendant has a right to a trial by jury. The defendant is also constitutionally entitled to be presumed innocent of the charges until the jury finds otherwise. More proof is required to find a person guilty of a crime than to return a verdict for a plaintiff in a civil case. In order to return a verdict of guilty in a criminal trial, the charges must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
