Frequently Asked Questions
Filing a personal injury claim or a lawsuit is not something many people are prepared to do. You may have many questions, so we’ve answered several common questions that injured victims like you may have.
Do I need a lawyer?
When seeking compensation for your accident-related injuries, it’s in your best interests to hire an experienced attorney. A personal injury attorney understands the law and the tactics that are often used by insurance companies. We are well-prepared to advocate for you so that you have the best chances of getting the compensation you deserve. Your attorney will negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf, and if necessary, fight your case in court.
What if part of the accident was my fault?
You can be responsible for part of the accident and still be entitled to compensation. This is because, in New Jersey, fault by all parties involved in an accident is taken into account when determining possible compensation for the injured victim. Contributory negligence is the legal approach used in New Jersey that states that you are still able to recover damages (compensation) after an accident even if you were partly at fault for the accident, so long as you were responsible for less than 50 percent of the accident. But if you were responsible for 51 percent or more of the accident, you aren’t entitled to receive any compensation.
For example, if you were eligible for $100,000 in compensation and were found to be at fault for 25 percent of the accident, your compensation would be reduced by 25 percent to $75,000.
What is the difference between a personal injury claim and a personal injury case?
You may notice the use of “personal injury claim” and “personal injury case” or “lawsuit” when referring to how you may receive compensation. They are two different processes.
After an accident, to get compensation for your injuries, you have to file a personal injury claim. This is filed with the insurance company. You may be required to file a claim with your own insurance company, and you will need to file one with the insurance company of the person who injured you. Many personal injury claims start and end as claims, provided negotiations are successful and result in settlements that are equal to or more than the value of your claim.
For some injury victims, insurance companies are immovable and we may have to take your claim to court. This is when your claim turns into a lawsuit. We will file your case with the court to initiate a lawsuit and fight to get you the compensation you deserve. Depending on the type of accident you were injured in and the person or entity who was responsible for your injury, the claims process may be truncated from the outset and go straight to the lawsuit phase.
When do I file a lawsuit?
The statute of limitations dictates the period of time, starting on the date of your accident, within which you must file your personal injury lawsuit In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits is two years.
