Personal Injury Legal Representation

        If you or a loved one has been injured, it can be a difficult and traumatic situation for all those affected. Everyone has trouble navigating the litany of legal, employment and insurance issues that may arise from such an unexpected incident. And unfortunately, the State of New Jersey has some of the most restrictive laws in regard to how auto-insurance companies are able to deny coverage and care to those who are in legitimate need, adding to the burden. That is why, with today’s complicated legal world, it is important to have an attorney fighting for you.

The Trauma of Being Injured

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.

New Jersey and Personal Injury Law

American personal injury law is based upon the basic idea that if a person or business is careless or negligent in causing an injury or other damages, the careless person or business entity is responsible for the damages and injuries caused. It is this fundamental concept that is at the heart of all personal injury law whether it is an auto accident case, a slip and fall case, a medical malpractice case or product liability action.

The purpose of personal injury litigation is to compensate a person for what that person has lost. As the law recognizes that an injured victim has suffered an injury because of the negligence of another, the person physically cannot be made the same person as he or she was before the injury.

The only way to compensate a person for their loss is try to arrive at a monetary figure that, as best as possible, compensates the injured victim for the losses suffered. The purpose of compensation is not to make a person rich, but simply to compensate an injured victim for the loss suffered. As the purpose is to compensate that particular injured victim for his or her loss, no two injuries are exactly alike. The impact an injury has had on each individual person will vary with that particular person. Thus, in properly evaluating a claim, it is important to know the nature and extent that the injury has affected the particular injured victim.
Woodlynne New Jersey Cost of Personal Injury Litigation
In considering what a person’s loss is as a result of an injury and thus what the reasonable compensation would be, the law considers many factors. Among the damages often considered are:
a) Past hospital, medical, chiropractic, prescriptions and other out-of-pocket expenses;
b) Past wage or earnings loss;
c) Past pain and suffering;
d) Future hospital, medical, chiropractic, prescriptions and other out-of-pocket expenses;
e) Future loss of earning capacity; and
f) Future pain and suffering.

Getting Compensated For Injuries

Personal injury lawyers can help ensure that their clients receive the maximum amount of damages recoverable by law. Some of the items for which injured parties are legally entitled to compensation include past and future lost wages; past and future medical expenses; damages for both physical and emotional pain and suffering, again both past and present; and damages for disfigurement.

Sometimes, a close family member of the injured person, such as his or her spouse, may also be entitled to damages, often referred to "loss of consortium damages," which are intended to compensate the loved one for the loss of the injured party's services and companionship.

Does an Attorney Really Make a Difference?

If you’ve been hurt, it can be a difficult to decision to make; should you now contact an attorney and seek to file a personal injury claim? There are tangible benefits to hiring an attorney, as statistics show that those who retained a lawyer generally received much higher gross recoveries than those who did not. Some people choose to represent themselves, which is possible but not recommended. But stats show that people who represent themselves got much lower compensation than those with an attorney. Receiving less compensation means that it’s possible to not be able to fully cover any economic losses, medical expenses, or lost wages. The overall effect that an attorney has in getting their client’s properly compensated is quantifiable, particularly when insurance companies are involved.
