Personal Injury Legal Representation


        Being injured is a difficult situation to be in no matter who you are. Not only do you have the physical problems related to the injury, but there can be emotional struggles as well as you come to grips with your injury. Will you ever be able to function as you previously could? Who will pay for all of your medical care? And what happens if you can no longer work? These are all harrowing questions to answer, even more so if you’re on your own. That’s why, if you’ve been injured, it’s a good idea to consider a personal injury claim to express and receive compensation.

How Personal Injury Law Works

When you are dealing with the effects of an injury, it’s a common question to ask what your legal rights may be. It’s important to know that, when someone has been injured and hurt due to the actions (or inactions) of another, the person who is at fault is legally obligated to be responsible for any of the damages incurred to the victim. How this works in real life is that certain losses related to the injury can be claimed and remunerated. Things such as medical expenses and loss of wages can be claimed as part of a personal injury tort case. Other areas that victims can claim include pain and suffering, emotional trauma, or any other areas affected by the injury. A personal injury tort claim seeks monetary compensation for these damages, as the law recognizes that an injury has caused a loss to an individual (defined legally as a Civil Wrong). But, it’s important to disclose the full nature of any injuries so that an attorney can properly evaluate each claim.

The Types of Injuries Which Qualify

The reason that a Personal Injury Claim is filed is to reach a form of compensation for the effects of an injury upon the victim. Lots of people get hurt every single day, but not all people who have been injured somehow are entitled to make a claim. The latest statistics show that annually there were 3.3 million emergency room visits in New Jersey, and not all of those injuries were caused by the result of another person’s negligent actions. The law has been set up so that persons who have suffered a permanent injury as a result of another’s negligent actions are permitted to put forth a claim against those who have caused the injury. Generally, affected areas of the body such as ligaments, bones, or muscle tissue, all could be considered “permanent” if the area will not heal eventually to function as it did previously.

Auto Accidents and Personal Injury Law

Once in an accident, we rely on the safety net of insurance to help us through. Unfortunately, the process rarely goes smoothly while the medical bills just keep piling up. What are the legal options you have? A person who carelessly operates a vehicle may be required to pay any damages caused by that carelessness, either to other persons or to their property. Generally, people who operate automobiles must exercise "reasonable care under the circumstances." Failure to use reasonable care is the basis in most lawsuits for damages caused by an automobile accident.

In New Jersey, your own automobile insurance is responsible for paying your medical bills, subject to certain deductibles. If you do not have insurance, your bills may be paid by the policy of a relative with whom you reside. New Jersey is also governed by the "verbal threshold" which means that you cannot make a claim unless you have a significant injury. Whether your claim meets the verbal threshold is something that you should consult with an attorney about. However, whether or not you have the verbal threshold does not limit your right to obtain medical treatment paid for you by your insurance company. If your insurance company does not pay your medical bills, the law provides certain penalties which you can enforce.

Further Resources About Personal Injury

Few people have to decide to make an injury claim; the choice is made for them by the actions of another. When you get hurt, it can be a very difficult process recovering from your injury. In addition to your pain and suffering, you may be unable to work or work at full capacity. Incapacitating Injuries cause on average more $70,000 in economic losses to a victim. That’s why, if you’ve been hurt, it’s important that you seek legal representation and get your claim underway as quick as possible. We’ve made some information available to help empower our clients so that they know what to expect once they get their personal injury claim underway.
