Types Of Compensation Available To NJ Personal Injury Victims
In the case that an individual has sustained economic or non-economic injuries, he or she might be eligible to receive compensation in the amount of the damages sustained. For personal injury lawsuits in New Jersey, compensation is available for any of the following:
Medical Expenses: Victims may be forced to undergo constant doctor’s visits or numerous surgeries – the cost of which can exceed insurance coverage. Thus, an individual may receive compensation for any medical bills, future doctor’s visits, medication and surgical costs resulting from the injuries sustained in the accident.
Property Damage: If a person’s property is damaged as a result of an accident caused by another’s negligence, the affected person may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the responsible party to recover compensation.
Income Loss: As a result of the injuries sustained, the victim may be forced to miss work for an extended period of time. Thus, they might be eligible to receive compensation for any lost income and any impact the injury may have had on their future earning potential.
Pain & Suffering: As a result of constant physical pain and the loss of life’s enjoyment, individuals may be able to bring forth a claim against the responsible party and receive compensation for the economic value of the pain and suffering caused by the injury.
Wrongful Death: In the case that the worker's injuries prove to be fatal, their family has the option to file a lawsuit on the victim’s behalf and receive compensation for future lost wages, costly medical bills, pain and suffering and funeral costs.

What Is The Statute Of Limitations?
When an individual suffers a severe injury that causes damages, he or she should not hesitate to seek out an experienced personal injury attorney. Due to the statute of limitations, it is within the best interest of injured individuals to seek legal counsel in a timely manner. The statute of limitations is a law that states the amount of time an individual has to file a claim following an injury. Failure to file a claim before the statute of limitations expires can result in victims being prevented from ever receiving the compensation they may deserve. Our NJ personal injury lawyers understand all aspects of the statute of limitations and are committed to giving our clients the opportunity to recoup the compensation they may be entitled. As a result, we handle all of our clients' claims in a timely manner.
