Results-Driven Personal Injury Lawyers Recover Full Compensation for Accident Victims in Mount Laurel and Throughout NJ

When you have been involved in an accident that results in injury, your head may be spinning just thinking about what to do. Should you accept a low settlement from the insurance company so you can pay the medical bills from the accident? Should you try and file a personal injury claim yourself? How long will the process take and how much can you recover?

At The Law Offices of Andres & Berger, P.C. we understand that the aftermath of an accident can be quite overwhelming. We are here to help. Our results-driven personal injury lawyers are experienced and skilled, with a track record of recovering full compensation for accident victims in Mount Laurel and throughout NJ. 

We Handle All Types of Personal Injury Claims

Personal injury law encompasses a wide range of accidents that are the result of another person or entity’s negligent actions. These accidents may include — but are not limited to — any of the following:

Accidents Must Be The Result of Negligence

Sometimes accidents just happen. You slip and fall on a sidewalk and no one is to blame. When considering whether to file a personal injury claim for injuries you sustained in an accident, it must be proven that the accident was the result of another person or entity’s negligence. Without demonstrated negligence, there is no basis for a personal injury claim.

Negligence may be exhibited in the form of recklessness or carelessness, such as driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs. It may also be demonstrated by not following standard safety precautions, a failure to behave in a responsible manner in the situation, or a disregard for other’s safety and well-being.

You May Recover Compensation for Your Injuries

Personal injury law protects those who have been injured in accidents that were caused by negligence, providing a legal method to seek compensation for injuries and other damages. When filing a personal injury claim in New Jersey, the injured victim may seek compensation for any of the following:

The Law Offices of Andres & Berger, P.C. in New Jersey has helped Mount Laurel accident victims recover maximum compensation for their injuries and has secured numerous multi-million dollar settlements and verdicts.

When You Share Responsibility for the Accident

When you share some level of responsibility for your accident, your compensation will be impacted under New Jersey’s “modified comparative negligence” rules. These rules state that the level of compensation that you will receive for your accident injuries will be reduced by an amount that represents your percentage of fault for the accident.

Simply put, if it is determined that you bear 25 percent of the responsibility for the accident, then your compensation will be reduced by 25 percent. So a damage award of $5,000 will be reduced to $3,750. If, however, it is determined that you are more than 50 percent responsible for the accident, you may not recover any damages from the at-fault parties.

Legal Time Limits for Filing a Personal Injury Claim in New Jersey

Each state has legal time limits for filing claims in the state’s civil court system. These time limits are known as statutes of limitations. In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is two years from the time the accident occurred.

Statutes of limitation are very important legal deadlines. Failure to file a personal injury claim within that two-year timeframe will result in the court dismissing your case. Furthermore, you will be unable to recover compensation for your injuries. 

The Statute of limitations may be extended under certain circumstances. So if you are considering pursuing a personal injury claim for your accident and believe your case merits an extension, consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer for guidance.

Frequently Asked Questions About Mount Laurel, NJ Personal Injury Claims

FAQ: The at-fault party’s insurance company offered me a settlement. Should I just take it to pay my medical bills?

When you have been involved in an accident and are facing mounting medical bills from your injuries, you may be inclined to accept the first settlement offer that comes along. And while this is certainly understandable, it is not advisable. Insurance companies act in their own best interests, not yours.

Initial settlement offers are usually the lowest offers, not necessarily the best offers. In most cases, these offers do not reflect the additional costs associated with ongoing medical treatment and care. Before considering any settlement offer, consult with an experienced personal injury attorney at the Law Offices of Andres & Berger, who will evaluate your case and discuss the compensation you can reasonably expect to receive for your accident.

FAQ: Do I need a lawyer for my personal injury claim or can I just handle it myself?

In New Jersey, you are not legally required to hire a lawyer to handle your personal injury accident claim. You may file a claim in the state’s civil courts yourself. However, depending upon the circumstances of your accident and the number of entities involved, the process can quickly become complicated.

Proving the other party is at fault is not always easy and straightforward. Large insurance companies have large staffs who will devote considerable time and resources to refuting your claim. All the while, you have injuries to tend to and medical bills to pay. For the best possible outcome in your situation, consult with a knowledgeable personal injury attorney at the Law Offices of Andres & Berger, who will evaluate the merits of your claim, discuss the process, and advise you of the best steps to recover maximum compensation for your injuries.
