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.

Finding the right lawyer can be a difficult process in itself, which is why you will be comforted having one of the state’s most well respected attorneys on your side.
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.
COMPENSATION FOR YOUR INJURIES
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.
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.
What sets us apart from other New Jersey personal injury firms is that we intentionally limit the number of cases we accept, so that every client receives the personal and proper attention he or she deserves.
With a dedicated, finely-tuned team that has worked together for over 25 years, we do not merely handle cases – we represent real people with real problems on an individual basis.
If you or a loved one have been injured by the negligence of another and need assistance, contact the Law Offices of John Morelli today for a free consultation. We work on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary recovery of funds.
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.
