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.

The Role of Your Attorney in an Injury Case

For the State of New Jersey, the role of a personal injury attorney in defending their clients can involve vigorous research, deposition testimonies, and communication on behalf of their clients. We maintain a trained staff to work on each case, constantly staying in contact with all of our clients medical providers to make sure they are getting the right kind of treatments. When involved in a car accident, insurance companies will regularly deny treatments in favor of a cheaper, possibly less effective option. Working within the system that’s in place, a personal injury attorney will work to ensure that their clients are getting the best medical coverage available, and aren’t being held up by unnecessary restrictions. While the machinations of the system can often be contradictory and confusing, with the right lawyer working on your case, your avenues for care are greatly opened up.

How Personal Injury Cases are Handled in NJ

The state of New Jersey’s injury compensation system is founded under tort law, which attempts to rectify a “civil wrong” that caused losses or suffering to another individual. Criminal acts can fall within tort laws, as someone can be pursued for “criminal negligence” in a criminal trial and general “negligence” in a separate tort lawsuit, but these are done through different court systems.

A good example is the famous OJ Simpson trial from the 90’s, where he was acquitted for the criminal act but found guilty in a civil tort claim for his wife’s “wrongful death.” Personal injury torts are typically focused on the harm done due to the negligence of a person, corporation, or any other entity. These types of lawsuits are handled outside the criminal system, and thus do not have the same potential penalties that a criminal suit would.
