Personal Injury Legal Representation

        Many people do not understand how truly difficult it is when you have suffered an injury. One day you are living your life and then suddenly, as a result of the careless actions of another, everything is affected. You could be left in daily pain, unable to work and support yourself financially. That’s why, it’s good to know, if you are in such a situation, there is a legal outlet for you through a personal injury claim.

Getting Compensation For Injuries

American law was among the first in the world to embrace the concept of personal injury torts, whereby an injured person is legally entitled to seek damages for their injuries. If a person, business or other entity causes harm to another, the victim has a right to compensation. The way that the law has been set up in New Jersey, victims can attempt to seek a monetary figure that, as best as possible, compensates them for their injury. The purpose of compensation is not to make a person rich, but to compensate a person for the full extent of change an injury has caused in their life. Areas in which claims for compensation can be made include: medical expenses, wage losses, pain and suffering, and lost earning capacity. It is important to properly evaluate each injury claim with an attorney so they can help you express the full impact the injury has had on your life.

Civil Law in New Jersey

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.

How an Attorney Can Help

Personal Injury laws were put into place to protect those who were hurt at the hands others. They allow for the injured to seek legal recourse and express exactly how their lives could be affected by an injury; whether it’s through lost wages, emotional and physical suffering, or the inability to complete daily tasks.

It’s not right that another person can leave you suffering from injuries which prohibit your ability to earn a living and lead a normal life. That is why, with an attorney on your side, fighting for you, you have the best possible chance of receiving compensation and coverage for any medical procedures that may be needed. There is a statue of limitations in place, which sets a limit on how far back into the past a person can make an injury claim. Because of this, when injured, it is important to contact a personal injury attorney fast as they can immediately ensure you get the care the right kind of care and put your claim into motion.
