Personal Injury Basics



As if being injured isn’t enough to deal with, now you find yourself trying to navigate the world of personal injury law. New Jersey, like most states, has a complex system to handle claims, but understanding the basics is important. As a victim, you should understand what’s involved in a claim so that you can make an informed decision.

What Is A Personal Injury?

Personal injury is a broad term that covers any injury you suffer to your physical person. It does not include damage to your property or to your reputation.

A personal injury claim is when you sue another person or party for causing your accident. In most cases, a personal injury claim seeks compensation from an individual or company’s insurance policy.

What Makes Up A Personal Injury Claim?

You need two basic components for a personal injury lawsuit, an assertion of negligence and a claim for damages.

Negligence
In personal injury, negligence means showing a lack of care. This negligence can take many forms. For auto claims, negligence could mean a reckless or distracted driver. In a slip and fall claim, the negligent party is an inattentive property owner. For your claim to be successful, we must prove that someone else is at fault for your accident.

Damages
After proving negligence, the next step is determining how much money you deserve for your injury. These are your damages in your claim, sometimes known as monetary or money damages. Your damages can include:

  • Your medical bills including the cost of recovery
  • Any potential costs, such as ongoing and future medical treatment
  • Money to make up for lost wages
  • Pain and suffering resulting from your accident

Suffering from depression or anxiety can have a lasting impact on your health and well-being. The physical scars from your injury will stay with you for the rest of your life. You deserve compensation for these damages as well. Pain and suffering is a legal term intended to cover the emotional and physical cost of your injury, things that it’s otherwise hard to put a price tag on.

The personal injury claims process can be complicated. It is important to hire an attorney like Console and Associates to help you navigate it so you can make sure you are demanding the settlement that will help you get your life back on track.

Personal injury law covers a variety of accidents, including:

Medical Malpractice

new jersey medical malpractice lawyers

You go to a hospital to get better, but what happens when you leave in worse shape than when you went in? Any medical procedure poses risks, but a lot of injuries that happen at the hospital are preventable. Whether it was a doctor’s error or unsanitary conditions, if the hospital caused your injury, they are responsible for it. Medical malpractice covers any case where your injuries resulted due to errors or negligence from a doctor or other healthcare provider. Some common forms of malpractice include:

  • Misdiagnosis: When the hospital treats you for the wrong condition.
  • Delayed Diagnosis: When the doctor misses symptoms of a serious condition, like cancer or a stroke. The delay in getting the right treatment can result in serious, preventable injury.
  • Infection: Contracting an infection or other illness after surgery due to unsanitary conditions.
  • Negligence: When a doctor or hospital’s inattention to their patient results in serious injury.

Auto Accidents

At Console and Associates, we’ve handled thousands of auto injury claims in New Jersey. From the Newark tunnel to the bridge to Wildwood, we’ve got you covered. We’ll help you get compensated for your personal injury. Auto accidents cover any personal injury that occurred that involves a vehicle, including:

Premises Liability

Slip and fall victimPremises liability covers any injury you receive while you’re on someone else’s property. This includes the private property of a homeowner who invited you over as well as injuries when you’re out shopping at a retail store. One of the most common examples of premises liability is injury due to a slip, trip, or fall.

Dog Bites

Dog biting a personMan’s best friend is capable of inflicting serious injury. If someone’s dog injured you, we hold the owner responsible. We’ll work with their insurance company to get you the money you deserve.

Assault & Inadequate Security

When you’re on a company’s property, that company has a responsibility to keep you safe. While no one can predict every situation, if your assault was preventable, they are liable for it.

Workers Compensation

However, if your injury was caused by a defective or unsafe product, you may be able to file what’s called a “third party liability” claim.

How Much Is My New Jersey Personal Injury Claim Worth?

Woman stressed over bills

Three components make up a personal injury case: medical attention, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

  • Medical Attention. Medical care is essential for treating your injuries. What you might not know is that seeing a medical professional as necessary serves a second purpose: documenting those injuries. Insurance companies might try to argue that your weren’t as serious as you say to get out of paying what you deserve. But when you see a doctor, your medical records provide a valid record of treatment for your case.
  • Loss of Wages. Accidents can cause injuries serious enough to keep you out of work. At Console and Associates‚ we fight to get you compensation for any lost wages that result from the accident. With serious injury, it could take weeks or months until you return to work, if you’re able to return at all.
  • Pain and Suffering. Unfortunately, there’s nothing we or anyone else can do to reverse the accident. We can’t prevent you from having to endure the physical and emotional consequences of your injury. What we can do is get you compensation for the pain you have experienced and the suffering the injury has caused you. The accident disrupted your life. Our role is to fight for justice and secure the settlement you need to make things right.

Every claim is different, so the quickest way to figure out how much you might be owed is to call us. Your case is unique and an attorney will need to review the details of your claim and let you know what your options are. People who let an attorney file a personal injury claim on your behalf receive settlements that average 3.5x more than what they could obtain on their own.

The accident resulted in herniated and bulging discs that required expensive surgery and months of recovery. We recovered $300,000 for our client to help them cover the cost of their medical bills.

personal injury accidentNever put off treatment for an injury. You are only going to make it worse, increasing your medical bills and delaying the time you can get back on your feet. More importantly, some treatable conditions will  become potentially life threatening if you wait too long to diagnose them.

Personal Injury FAQs

New Jersey slip and fall FAQs

What’s My Personal Injury Case Worth?

No other case is just like yours. To accurately tell you what your case is worth, a personal injury lawyer in New Jersey would need to know details about your case, including:

  • What caused the accident
  • What your injuries were?
  • How your injuries affected your life?
  • How much insurance coverage is available?

The value of your personal injury claim depends on all of these factors and more.

No attorney can reliably tell you what your case is worth without knowing the details of it. What we can tell you is that Console & Associates P.C. has recovered more than $100,000,000 in personal injury settlements and jury awards for clients in situations similar to yours. We’ll work hard to try and get you maximum compensation for your case.

New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyers | Console & Associates P.C.

How Long Do I Have to Pursue My Case?

No matter what caused your accident, there’s a personal injury statute of limitations – basically, an important deadline – that affects your case. If you miss this deadline, you won’t be able to pursue any claim at all, no matter how badly you’re hurt. It may not be fair, but unfortunately, it’s how the legal process works.To prevent yourself from losing out on your legal rights, you need to act quickly. The general statute of limitations in New Jersey is two years from the date of your accident. But exceptions could reduce your time to as little as three months – and you might never find this out until it’s too late.

How Long Will My Case Take?

We’ve already talked about the claims process, but many accident victims want to know how long their case will take. After all, you’re dealing with this injury every day. You want the money you deserve as soon as possible so you can put this whole ordeal behind you. We get that. The personal injury timeline can vary from one case to another. How long your case will take depends on several factors – some of which, again, you won’t be able to control. It may take longer to get the money you deserve if:

  • Your medical treatment drags on for a long time.
  • Your case is especially complex.
  • The defending insurance company is especially uncooperative.

Until our injury lawyers in NJ know your situation, we can’t tell you how long your unique case will take. We’ve resolved some cases in a manner of a few months, but others have taken several years.What we can tell you is that we’re committed to getting you the most money in the shortest amount of time possible. It’s one of the factors that sets Console & Associates P.C. apart.
