Many different types of injuries can qualify you to submit a personal injury claim in New Jersey. If you are looking at a stack of medical bills and you believe that someone else is to blame for the accident that injured you, you should not have to pay all of these expenses on your own. Our Monmouth County personal injury attorneys can look at your case and help you hold any negligible parties accountable.

What Kinds of Accidents Can Lead to a Personal Injury Claim?

Many types of accidents can result in serious injuries. If you were hurt in any of these ways, our lawyers are prepared to help you:

  • Car, truck, or motorcycle accident
  • Pedestrian or bike accident
  • Slip and fall
  • Dog bite
  • Injured on the job
  • Medical malpractice

Some of these accidents can leave behind devastating injuries that disable or disfigure someone for life. If someone’s negligence resulted in such injuries, they need to be held liable for the pain that they have caused.

What Types of Damages Can I Recover With a Personal Injury Claim?

Your compensation should not just cover the economic costs of an accident. A fair offer also addresses the psychological costs of getting hurt and other factors that are more difficult to assign a dollar value to. We will help you fight for damages that make up for:

Medical expenses: You may have already tallied up some significant medical expenses, even if you have insurance. Compensation should be calculated with these costs in mind, and a fair offer will also address the cost of future care if it will be needed.

Lost wages: If you have to miss work as you recover from your injuries, that can mean a few missed paychecks. That can cause financial stress for any family, so we help you fight for those lost wages too.

Lost earning potential: If your injuries could affect your ability to work in the future, that needs to be addressed by a compensation offer. Some people who get hurt in accidents are not able to work in the same capacity or at all.

Pain and suffering: Any other pain and suffering experienced due to the accident also needs to be made up for.

How Long Do I Have to Make a Personal Injury Claim?

You should not waste too much time when you are thinking of filing a personal injury claim. The state gives accident victims just two years to sue for compensation. When you hire a lawyer from our firm, we can file your case for you while you focus on recovering and spending time with your loved ones.
