Compensation You Might Receive
Suffering from injuries due to an accident or other circumstance where your injuries were caused by another party’s negligent actions can cause you significant losses. You can be compensated for your financial, physical, and emotional losses, including:
- Medical costs for treatment for your injuries, including future medical treatment costs
- Lost income or wages
- Reduced future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life and quality of life
- Costs to repair or replace your damaged property
You may also be awarded punitive damages for your injuries. Punitive damages are awarded by the court to punish the party responsible for your injuries if their negligent or actions were done with malice or wanton disregard for your safety. The burden of proof is high for injured victims when it comes to punitive damages, so they are only awarded in rare cases.
How to Prove Your Claim or Lawsuit
When you’ve been injured, in order to be compensated you have to show that another individual or a company caused your injury. This means that you have to prove that your injuries were caused by an individual’s or a company’s negligence.
To do this, you have to show three things. First, that the responsible party (the individual or company who caused your injury) was supposed to act with a reasonable amount of care so they wouldn’t hurt you, yet they failed to do so. Second, you have to show that it was the responsible party’s actions that caused your injury. Last, you need to show that your injuries have caused you losses for which you can recover damages.
Whether you file a claim with your insurance company or file a lawsuit against an individual or company, they may try to reduce any compensation they owe you by claiming that you were actually responsible for your injuries. But even if you were partly at fault for your injuries, you may still be entitled to compensation.
Under New Jersey’s modified comparative fault law, you can still recover damages as long as your negligence wasn’t more than the other party’s. If multiple parties were responsible for your injuries, their combined negligence has to be of a greater percentage than your negligence. Your compensation will be reduced by the same percentage as your shared responsibility for your injuries.
For example, let’s say that you were 30 percent responsible for the accident that caused your injuries. If your total losses amount to $100,000 in damages, you would only be able to recover $70,000.
In addition, you’ll need to support your claim or lawsuit by providing evidence of your injuries. Both your medical records showing the medical care and treatment you received for your injury and a record of your medical history showing that you didn’t have these injuries before the accident are strong evidence for your claim or lawsuit. Additionally, a police report, if applicable, detailing the accident can support your claim. Other evidence that can be used to support your injury claim or lawsuit includes witness statements and expert statements and testimony.
