New Jersey Personal Injury Laws
Most personal injury claims rely on four pillars for success: duty, breach of duty, causation and damages. It is up to you, the plaintiff, to prove these four elements to have a valid claim to compensation. Hiring an attorney takes the burden of proof off of you and gives it to a professional who knows how to collect and present evidence in a way that may convince a judge or jury to rule in your favor. A lawyer can also navigate New Jersey’s state-specific personal injury laws on your behalf.
For example, New Jersey is a no-fault car accident state. If your injuries happened in a Union City car crash, you must seek restitution from your own insurance provider and policy, even if you did not cause the accident. The only exception is if you have serious, debilitating or permanent injuries. If you have a bone fracture, for instance, you could file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver to seek compensation through his or her insurer instead. A lawyer can help you navigate this insurance rule and other important laws, such as the statute of limitations.
How Long After an Injury Can You File?
After a harmful accident, notify authorities (such as the police, an employer or a store manager) and wait at the scene for them to arrive. Request medical assistance, if necessary. Gather documentation of your accident and injuries for your claim later, including photographs. Do not admit fault for your injuries to anybody. Get medical treatment right away. Then, contact an attorney about a potential personal injury lawsuit. Speak to a lawyer soon, as you only have two years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury claim in New Jersey.
Common Types of Personal Injury Accidents
Whether or not you have grounds for a claim depends on the events leading up to your accident. If you believe someone else reasonably could have prevented what happened to you, that person could owe you compensation. At Console & Associates PC, we accept many different types of personal injury cases.
Car, truck, bicycle, motorcycle and pedestrian accidents
Slip and fall accidents/premises liability
Dog and animal attacks
Workplace and construction accidents
School or playground accidents (child injuries)
Medical malpractice incidents
Nursing home mistreatment, neglect or abuse
Filing a claim with help from our attorneys could mean receiving fair compensation for your damages, both economic and noneconomic. An economic damage award could reimburse you for out-of-pocket expenses such as medical bills and lost wages. Noneconomic damages repay you for intangible things such as physical discomfort and mental anguish.
