NJ Personal Injury Lawyer

What qualifies as a ‘personal injury’ in NJ? Personal injury refers to a situation where someone has been physically or emotionally injured or killed as a result of someone else’s negligence. The individual harmed may seek a personal injury claim to get money from the person or company that wronged them as compensation for the harm.

Unfortunately, when you are injured in an accident, insurance companies may seem like they are not on your side. While they may offer a quick settlement, most likely this is to protect their bottom line, not your best interests. Your injuries can have long-term consequences, such as medical expenses, lost wages, home and lifestyle modifications, personal pain and suffering and even wrongful death, that demand aggressive legal action. The only way to get the compensation you are truly due is through legal action brought by an aggressive and knowledgeable personal injury law firm.

What is the New Jersey Personal Injury Law?

The New Jersey statute of limitations on personal injury cases can be found at New Jersey Code section 2A:14-2. New Jersey’s system for injury compensation is structured under tort law, which attempts to rectify a “civil wrong” that caused losses or suffering to another individual. Personal injury torts usually are focused on the harm done due to the negligence of a person, corporation or any other entity. Tort lawsuits are handled outside the criminal system, and thus do not have the same ramifications that a criminal suit would (such as a prison sentence).

In New Jersey, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases gives an injured person two years from the date of the injury to go to court and file a lawsuit against those responsible for the injury.
