What Is the Time Limit for Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
In New Jersey, the law limits the time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit. This time period is dictated by the statute of limitations. In New Jersey, you have two years from the date of the accident to file your lawsuit in court. If you miss the two-year deadline, you may relinquish your rights to seek justice and compensation through the court system.
Our legal team understands the importance of filing the correct paperwork on time. We know that every case is unique, and our attorneys spend time getting to know the details of yours. We use this information to customize a strategic plan and fight for your right to fair compensation.
How an Experienced Morris County Injury Attorney Can Help
After an accident that was not your fault, the at-fault party’s insurance company may send an insurance adjuster to speak with you. These are skilled negotiators whose job is to gather evidence to disprove your claim.
The adjuster may want to ask you questions or may ask you to make a recorded statement. You are within your rights to refuse to answer questions until you have an attorney present. An adjuster may also make an early settlement offer.
They may tell you that it is the only offer you will receive from the insurance company. When an adjuster or the insurance company recognizes they are working with someone who is inexperienced, they may try to reduce their financial responsibility using tactics that a skilled attorney would reject. The first offer is usually not a fair one.
When you work with an attorney from our legal team, they can also help prevent you from inadvertently saying something that could negatively affect your case. Our legal team recognizes that compensation cannot make up for your injuries. However, it can help pay for your medical costs, lost wages, and lost future earnings. Reducing your financial stress can help make your recovery a little bit easier.

Potential Compensation Available
After a significant injury, you may have questions about the type of compensation that’s available. If negotiations with the insurance company are successful, you may be offered economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages are compensation for verifiable and measurable costs. These can include medical expenses, lost wages, and lost earning potential. Non-economic damages are compensation for subjective costs. These can include disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, and pain and suffering.
If negotiations are not successful with the insurance company, you may choose to move forward with a personal injury lawsuit. If the court finds in your favor, you will be awarded economic and non-economic damages. In rare cases, the court will also award punitive damages. This is not an award that is intended to compensate you, but rather to punish the defendant for their malicious or intentional actions.

After a significant accident and injury, you may feel as if your life has been turned upside down. The legal team at Brach Eichler Injury Lawyers understands how difficult the following weeks and months can be.

The accident may leave you overwhelmed and feeling as if your life is out of control. You have the ability to reclaim that control and have a significant impact on your future when you work with an experienced Morris County injury attorney.
