Negligence Must Be Proven in Accident Claims
Before you can recover any compensation for your accident injuries, you must prove that the other party demonstrated negligence which contributed to or caused your accident. This is not always as easy as it sounds. Other parties will argue that you share some responsibility for the accident and will seek evidence to use against you.
It is in your best interest to refrain from discussing the details of the accident with anyone other than your personal injury lawyer. Do not share any information on social media and do not speak to any representatives of the insurance company. Seek the counsel of a skilled personal injury lawyer who will obtain the necessary documentation, statements, witness testimony, and other evidence to support your accident claim and advocate on your behalf.
Personal Injury Claims Have Legal Deadlines for Filing
New Jersey’s statute of limitations for personal injury claims — the legal deadline for filing a claim in the civil courts — is two years from the time the accident took place. When a claim is filed after this deadline, the courts will dismiss the case entirely, precluding you from recovering any compensation for the injuries you sustained. While there are instances when the court will consider an extension of this deadline under certain circumstances, it is best to consult with a knowledgeable New Jersey personal injury attorney regarding whether you meet the criteria for such an extension.
Recover Just Compensation for Your Losses
When you have been hurt in an accident that was caused by someone else, you may think that recovering just compensation should be fairly straightforward. Afterall, insurance policies are supposed to protect people. Unfortunately, the claims process is far more complicated and insurance companies are acting in their own best interests, not yours.
If your accident was due to negligence, you are entitled to recover compensation for your accident injuries and losses, including any of the following:
- Medical bills
- Hospital bills
- Expenses from laboratory tests
- Pain and suffering
- Lost income
- Lost vacation time
- Lost sick time
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Rehabilitation costs
- Future medical expenses related to the accident
- Costs of surgical procedures
- Prescription medication
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of opportunity
If you share any amount of responsibility for the accident, then your compensation will be impacted.
New Jersey’s Comparative Negligence Rules
New Jersey’s comparative negligence rules apply to those situations where the injured party bears some responsibility for the accident. In these cases, the compensation that the injured victim may receive will be reduced by an amount that reflects their level of responsibility for the accident. So, for example, if it is determined that the injured party was 30 percent responsible for the accident, their compensation will be reduced by 30 percent.

Frequently Asked Questions About Marlton, NJ Personal Injury Claims
FAQ: How can I determine if I have the basis for a personal injury claim for my accident?
After you have been injured in an accident, it is not uncommon to question whether or not you have the basis for a personal injury claim. For the most part, when someone else’s negligence has caused an accident that resulted in your injuries, you may have a valid claim. Every accident case is unique with its own set of circumstances, and must be evaluated individually.
Factors that play a role in whether you have the legal right to hold someone else accountable for your injuries include the extent of your injuries, whether you share any responsibility for the accident, and other factors. Our personal injury lawyers offer a free consultation to discuss the merits of your case, the reasonable level of compensation you can expect to receive, and your available options.
FAQ: I received a settlement offer from the insurance company. How do I know if it is a fair offer?
When you have been injured in an accident, you may be seeking only a level of compensation that covers your immediate medical bills. However, you are entitled to recover compensation for other expenses, including future medical expenses related to the accident, loss of future earning capacity due to the injuries, and other losses.
Initial settlement offers from insurance companies most often reflect only your immediate costs. They will not cover future anticipated expenses and, as such, will fall short of covering all of the damage the accident caused. Before considering a settlement offer from the insurance company, seek the counsel of an experienced personal injury attorney. The Law Offices of Andres & Berger, P.C. offer a complimentary consultation with a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer to discuss your Marlton accident claim and what level of compensation you may be entitled to receive for your injuries.
