    The law of serious injury in New Jersey auto accidents

    The term “serious injury” is not just descriptive or subjective. It describes a legal threshold related to your right to sue for full compensation in a New Jersey auto accident. An important portion of your recovery is compensation for non-economic losses, such as:

    • Physical pain
    • Loss of quality of life
    • Loss of enjoyment of life
    • Loss of consortium

    Often called “pain and suffering,” these damages can be the lion’s share of your potential settlement or jury award. You must show by some objective metric that your auto accident injury is “serious.” Otherwise, the law may bar you from claiming pain and suffering damages.

    Under New Jersey’s no-fault insurance law, policyholders can purchase a “limited right to sue” or an “unlimited right to sue” policy. If your policy limits your right to sue, you cannot file a claim for pain and suffering unless you sustained a “serious injury.” The law defines such an injury by these six categories:

    • Loss of a limb
    • Significant disfigurement/scarring
    • Displaced bone fracture
    • Loss of an unborn child
    • Permanent injury

    In the last instance, a doctor must certify under penalty of perjury that “to a reasonable degree of medical probability,” you have injured at least one “body part or organ” that will not heal to normal function, even with further medical treatment.

    Our attorneys know how to prove you meet the eligibility threshold to claim pain and suffering damages. We work with medical experts to compile compelling evidence that secures your right to make a claim.

    Calculating future damages for a catastrophic injury

    Following your serious injury, there are many questions you and your attorney must address:

    • Will you need future medical care?
    • How much of a recovery can you expect to make?
    • Will you be able to do the same work, or will you have to take a lower-paying position?
    • Will you need additional education or training to transition to new work you can perform?
    • Will you need personal home care because of your injury now or in the future?
    • Because of your injury, will your bodily functions decline more rapidly as you age?

    Until you answer all of these questions, you can’t begin to know the full value of your case.

    At Brach Eichler Injury Lawyers, we believe that when an injury changes your life forever, you deserve a lifetime of compensation. That’s why we fight so aggressively to maximize your recovery. However, there are real challenges to making projections about what your losses might amount to throughout your expected lifetime. Courts will not allow a damage award based on speculation. All demands for compensation must:

    • Stem from reasonable assumptions
    • Have support from factual data
    • Draw on logical conclusions

    To meet these standards, we work closely with qualified medical, rehabilitation, economics, and finance experts to present a demand that can stand up to intense scrutiny. When you retain our services for your injury case, you get a law firm with a strong track record of results. We have recovered more than $425 million in compensation for our clients. Let us put this reputation to work for you.
