PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS
ELIZABETH NJ PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS
To file a personal injury claim, there is no need to show that you were intentionally harmed by someone else. In reality, most personal injury claims only involve proving that the injury resulted from someone’s negligence or failure to act appropriately. That is the usual issue in the most common personal injury claims including car accidents, public transportation accidents, premises (slip-and-fall) accidents, work-related injuries, and professional negligence.
In filing a personal injury claim it is important to consider the full extent of an injury, which can actually encompass more than the physical injury itself. This can include health care costs, loss of income, psychological and emotional stress, and impairment of quality of life. Sometimes it is impossible to calculate the total injury at the time the claim is filed, such as with injuries to children, injuries that involve psychological problems, and injuries that worsen pre-existing health conditions.
If you are injured, we recommend you contact us promptly, for advice on how to proceed. Depending upon the type of insurance involved, different benefits may be available. Be cautious in the early stages of an insurance or personal injury claim; resolving them too quickly or too soon may result in receiving less than the full amount you are entitled to.
