Do You Have a New Jersey Personal Injury Case?

Have you been injured in a serious accident in New Jersey? Life changes, physical challenges and financial strain resulting from an injury can be overwhelming, and you deserve compensation for your suffering and to aid you in getting your life back on track.

Personal injury cases in New Jersey include a variety of different situations. Beyond just automobile accidents and slip and fall cases, other causes for action can be injury incurred by medical malpractice or nursing home abuse. Product liability is another possible cause for a case. Each type of case has its own statute of limitations (the amount of time you have to file a claim as designated by the state). For this reason, it’s important to act quickly and consult with your attorney regarding how much time you have. It may be difficult to even think about a lawsuit when you’re suffering a lot of pain and stress from the incident, but to protect and pursue your legal rights, it’s important to file your case within the designated time period as specified by the stat of New Jersey.

Just cause for a case requires that the plaintiff (injured party) in a person injury lawsuit provide proof of several key items: 

  • Duty of care
  • Breach of the duty of care
  • Injury resulted from this breach of duty 
  • Damages incurred by the injury  (monetary and non-monetary)
