What is a "personal injury?"
Although money cannot always fully compensate you for your loss, when you or a loved one is injured, you may be entitled to monetary restitution. The courts of New Jersey recognize and use the term "personal injury" in addressing these cases.
A personal injury occurs when a person's carelessness, negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions causes a physical or emotional injury to another person or to another person's private property. The law allows the injured party to receive compensation for damages.
Personal injury law is the mechanism for determining who is in the wrong, or in other words, who should have to pay for the damage caused.
How can I get compensation for my injury?
Your compensation can be negotiated and agreed upon between you and the individual causing the injury through insurance settlements or by other means. However, the damages offered to you during such negotiations may not fully compensate you for your loss. This is especially true if your injuries are severe; you may not be able to sufficiently grasp or calculate the long-term impact your injuries will have on your life.
If you feel you or a loved one has suffered a personal injury, there are several things you can do to help yourself:
- Seek proper medical attention.
- Follow up with the proper authorities.
- Contact your own insurance company.
- If you believe your injury was the result of negligence or intentional acts of another, contact an attorney to discuss your situation.
Avoid discussing the matter with strangers and/or insurance representatives who are not from your own insurance company, but cooperate with the police, your own treating physicians, and your own insurance company.
Why do I need my own attorney when my insurance company is representing me?
Although you may think your insurance company is on your side, the reality is insurance companies strive to limit the amount of money they pay out on claims. This is why it is important for you to retain your own attorney.
When should I consult with an attorney?
If you or a loved one has been injured due to another person's negligence or recklessness, consult an experienced personal injury attorney immediately to protect your interests. Every day that you delay in consulting an attorney reduces your chances of being fairly and completely compensated. In fact, some claims can be lost forever if they are not handled properly.
