Negligence Must Be Demonstrated to File a Personal Injury Claim
In order to file a personal injury claim to recover damages for your injuries, the accident must have been caused by another person or entity’s negligence. Afterall, accidents happen every day and sometimes it is nobody else’s fault. Certain actions, such as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) or driving over the speed limits, are considered negligent actions. Inaction, such as the failure to repair a hazardous walkway, can also be considered negligent. Each accident case is unique and will be evaluated based on the specific circumstances.
In most accident cases, the at-fault party will try and argue that the injured victim is somewhat responsible for the accident. An experienced personal injury lawyer will collect the necessary evidence, interview witnesses, and obtain other information to support your accident claim.
Recover Compensation for Medical Bills and More
When an accident leaves you injured, you may be facing medical expenses, time away from work, and other consequences. If your accident is the result of another person’s negligence, you may recover compensation for medical bills and other losses, including any of the following:

Important Legal Deadlines for Filing a Personal Injury Claim
Statutes of limitations — legal deadlines for filing claims in a state’s civil courts — are established by each state and vary based on the type of claim. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is two years from the date of the accident. This is a strict legal deadline.
If an accident claim is filed after this two-year deadline has passed, the New Jersey courts will refuse to hear the case. In addition, the opportunity to recover damages for any injuries stemming from the accident will have been lost. In extenuating circumstances, the courts may extend this deadline; consult with an experienced New Jersey personal injury attorney if you have concerns about meeting the filing deadline.

Frequently Asked Questions About Evesham, NJ Personal Injury Claims
Our personal injury attorneys are always prepared to take your case to court, but they are skilled negotiators with years of experience dealing with insurance companies and defense attorneys. We thoroughly investigate, collect evidence, and aggressively pursue your accident claim to promptly recover the best possible compensation for your injuries often without the need to go to court.
If you share some level of responsibility for your accident, then the compensation you can recover will be impacted. New Jersey follows specific rules, known as “comparative negligence rules” for these situations. Under comparative negligence, your compensation will be reduced by an amount that directly reflects your portion of the blame for the accident.
So, for example, if you are 35 percent responsible for the accident, then your compensation will be reduced by 35 percent. It is important to note that if it is determined that you are more than 50 percent responsible for the accident, then you may not recover any compensation from the other parties that are also at fault for your accident.
