Personal injury is a broad term that refers to physical harm. It does not cover cases such as property damage or defamation.
In a personal injury claim, you, as the plaintiff, are suing another person or party, called the defendant, for causing your accident. Typically, the claim seeks to receive compensation from the at-fault person’s insurance company, rather than the individual.
The money damages you recover in a personal injury lawsuit can help bring your life back to normal or help you discover a “new normal” your family can live with. Often, our clients use their settlements to afford top-quality medical care, make up for the income they missed out on while injured, or adjust their homes and other parts of their lives to make getting around more manageable in spite of the injury.

Yes! Personal injury law covers a variety of accident types, including:
Medical malpractice covers any case where preventable injuries occurred due to errors or negligence on the part of a doctor or other healthcare provider. Some medical malpractice case types are:
Auto accidents cover any personal injury that involves a vehicle. At Console and Associates, we’ve successfully handled thousands of auto accident claims, including:
Premises liability covers any injury or accident that happens while you’re on someone else’s property.

To make a successful claim, you’ll need two pieces of information:
Proof of Negligence
You need to prove that someone else was at fault for the injury. Proving negligence shows that someone else’s carelessness caused the accident.
In an auto claim, for instance, the negligent party may be a reckless driver. Similarly, for slip and fall claims, neglectful property owners can be deemed negligent.
A qualified legal team can help you through the difficult process of proving negligence. Our firm is up to the task with over 25 years of experience in the field. We only take on personal injury cases, so you can be assured that we know the ins and outs of the process.
Sum of Damages
You’ll also need to determine your damages, sometimes referred to as monetary or money damages. To do this, you will need to put a number on how much you suffered as a result of your accident.
Damages in a personal injury claim can encompass several factors. Some examples include:
Pain and suffering is a legal term used to describe the physical and emotional damage you endured. Although it is hard to put a price tag on this kind of suffering, you deserve compensation for what you have been through.
Our team can help you navigate the process of determining damages. We will figure out what you are entitled to and fight for every last penny.
The personal injury claims process is complicated. An experienced firm like ours will be there to help every step of the way, so you can focus on recovery instead of a legal battle. Letting us handle your case is about more than managing your claim. It means fewer things you have to worry about.
It is important to take care of your injuries first. Never put off medical treatment. Not going to the doctor right away isn’t just bad for your health but also for your claim. Insurance companies need to see that you sought treatment right away, or they may argue that you weren’t really hurt in the accident.
Next, you’ll want to call a personal injury lawyer. What we do is guide you through the process, compile the necessary documentation for a claim, and do the work needed to get you financial compensation.
Your attorney will be there to handle insurance company interactions. At the end of the day, insurance companies are businesses. They will fight hard to pay out as little as possible. We are here to fight back harder. Our team will work tirelessly to help you win the compensation you deserve.
When our experienced attorneys figure out the value of your claim, we’re looking primarily at three components: your injuries and resulting medical bills, your lost wages, and the pain and suffering you’ve endured.
Of course, there are other factors that affect the value of a personal injury claim, too. That’s why you can’t use a simple formula to figure out how much money you truly deserve. Since each claim is so unique, the most accurate way to figure out how much you might be owed is to call us. An attorney will analyze all of the details of your claim and let you know what your options are.
If you’re wondering whether hiring a lawyer is really worth the cost, consider this: People who let an attorney file a personal injury claim on their behalf get settlements that are, on average, 3.5 times greater than what they would receive if they fought the insurance company or responsible party on their own.
When you’re seriously hurt due to someone else’s negligence, you need a personal injury lawyer who always puts clients first and isn’t afraid to fight for your rights. At Console and Associates‚ we take pride in how hard we work to be there for you in every way. We develop personal relationships with our clients. We are here to listen, to help you navigate your medical treatment, to help you meet your statute of limitations deadlines, to uncover the full extent of your damages, and to handle calls with the insurance company. Let us know what problems you’re facing. You might be surprised how much we can help with.
We’ve handled personal injury cases of all types and have recovered large settlements for victims of car accidents, slip and fall injuries, and other types of accidents in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
We’re in it to win it for you. If we can’t secure you a settlement‚ you don’t owe us a dime.
Our No Fee Promise is very simple: We never charge you anything for our services until you win your claim.
From our first conversation until the day we reach settlement, you’ll never pay a penny for us to handle your claim.
Console and Associates’ No Fee Promise aligns our goals with yours. Rather than charge you an hourly rate, we take a portion of the final settlement as payment. That means the amount of money we receive as payment is directly related to the amount of money you receive in your settlement. This is known as a contingency fee.
Contingency fee structures benefit the plaintiffs in personal injury matters. Lawyers who charge hourly fees or flat costs don’t necessarily care if you win or lose. Attorneys who bill hourly will often rack up as many hours as possible to make the most money. On the other hand, if a lawyer charges a flat fee, your personal injury case might only get a few hours of their attention. With our contingency fee structure, you know that your attorneys have your best interests at heart. The more money we get for you, the more we make, too.
At Console and Associates, we put in as much time and energy as is needed to help you win your case. If we can’t successfully reach a settlement, you owe us nothing. It’s that simple.

We are real people who have experienced injuries, too.
People often feel that attorneys are not compassionate and focus mostly on the details of the law. While we do work diligently on every detail of your case, we are dedicated because we have been in your shoes. Our lawyers have experienced pain, mistreatment, and negligence, and so have many of our close family members and friends. We fight for justice because we know firsthand the pain and confusion a serious injury can cause. We understand all too well how you feel right now, and we’ll do all we can to help make life after an accident easier on you.

Bringing a case against an employer, an insurance company, or a private individual doesn’t have to be difficult or scary. We handle the complexities of personal injury law every day. By taking on the full responsibility of managing the claim, we make this otherwise challenging process very easy on you.
We want you to have the help you deserve.
The reason people pay for insurance is so that, if someone gets injured in some sort of accident, their insurance will take care of the financial costs. Yet you would be surprised how hard it can be to get this to happen. The insurance company wants to keep as much of its money as possible, even when you’re rightfully entitled to a payout.
And they have entire teams of employees whose job is to do just that.
It can be overwhelming to think of the financial burden on your family when an insurance company rejects your claim or minimizes your pain. You may feel victimized all over again – but you don’t have to put up with this behavior.
We believe in standing up for individuals who have been burdened by increasing medical bills and other expenses due to the combination of an injury that is not their fault and the insurance companies that are more interested in profit than doing their jobs. Let us use our experience and knowledge of the law to navigate these complex situations while you focus on healing and recovering after a traumatic injury.
Don’t wait for the statute of limitations to take away your legal rights, or for you to feel too overwhelmed by the claims process to know what to do next. Start getting help right now, before your legal claim becomes a burden to your recovery and your family.
Contact Console and Associates today to get started working with a lawyer you can trust. Reach out to our personal injury lawyers at (856) 778-5500 for your free, private consultation.
