How Injuries Are Handled in New Jersey

Personal Injury lawsuits are a form of Tort law, which refers to one party unfairly committing a tortious act against another, resulting in loss or harm. The person or entity who has committed this act, in the legal system referred to as a tortfeasor, will have a legal liability for any of the damages they caused. Torts do not fall under criminal law, meaning that there is no criminal penalty for these actions.
