Personal Injury FAQs
Individuals who have suffered an injury have a great many questions and concerns about how they can receive financial compensation to help them recover. In this section, we attempt to answer some of the most pertinent and pressing queries that individuals and their families tend to ask.
In most situations, injured persons in New Jersey have two years to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. This is extremely important to keep in mind, as if you fail to bring your lawsuit within the proper timeframe, the courts will likely refuse to hear your case.
Minors, with the exception of birth injuries, may file personal injury lawsuits until two years after their 18th birthday. Claims against government institutions must often be brought within 90 days.
The value of an injury claim varies from case to case. It hinges not only on the severity of the injury itself, but also the strength of the evidence establishing the liability of the party at fault – the details matter greatly. Generally speaking, however, a claim’s worth is based on a few key considerations:
- Past and future medical bills
- Lost wages and lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
An experienced attorney will guide you through the process of filing your claim and, most importantly, help to maximize your recovery. A knowledgeable lawyer will be able to determine the amount to which you are entitled, and will not settle with an insurance company for less. Obtaining the funds you need to recover is essential, and an attorney is crucial to this effort.
