Personal Injury Rates in New Jersey

According to New Jersey State Health Assessment Data compiled by the Department of Health, unforeseen accidents are the fourth-leading cause of death in New Jersey. Unintentional injuries account for 4,800 of all deaths in the state. In the most recent year on record, accidental personal injuries were the leading cause of death for New Jersey residents ages 15-44. When adjusted for population, this percentage is on par with the rest of the United States.

Unintentional injuries are a tragic way to lose a loved one. However, even when injuries do not lead to a fatality, they can still create difficult circumstances that leave you struggling to cope. Over 2 million emergency room visits take place per year in New Jersey, according to recent New Jersey State Health Assessment Data.

Meanwhile, the average cost of emergency room visits nationwide has risen significantly over the past few years, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The cost of emergency room visits in New Jersey can rise exponentially depending on the types of treatment involved, the number of repeat visits required, and the possibility of transfer services, like ambulance rides, being utilized.

All these costs can take you by surprise when you have been injured in New Jersey. Shulman & Hill represents injured clients with dedication and care. Every client’s case is treated with the utmost respect and diligence. When you are injured, you deserve to be more than just another statistic. At Shulman & Hill, we can help you seek justice and financial restitution in unfortunate and unfair circumstances.

How a New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyer From Shulman & Hill Can Help You

Personal injury cases can be complex, with much paperwork and back-and-forth communication with the liable party. You don’t have to deal with this on your own, though. You have a right to legal representation, and our legal team can handle your case from start to finish.

We can:

  • Investigate the cause and contributing factors in your accident
  • Determine the liable party
  • Gather evidence of another party’s negligence
  • Handle all the paperwork associated with your case
  • Communicate with insurers, the liable party, and defense attorneys
  • Fight for fair compensation

Our firm provides client-focused legal services. We will never treat you like one more case file on our desks. When we take on a case, we tailor our legal strategy to suit your circumstances. We will never leave you in the dark regarding your case. We make ourselves available to answer your questions and explain the legal aspects of your case.

Our Verdicts and Settlements Speak Volumes

Our firm’s case results can give you an idea of our dedication to our clients. We cannot promise a particular outcome for your case since each case is unique and depends on the specific circumstances. However, we can promise to work as hard as possible to secure a fair outcome. We give each personal injury case the attention to detail it deserves.

Take a look at some of the verdicts and settlements we have won for our clients:

  • A settlement of $2 million for a worker who fell from a defective ladder. Injuries to his left shoulder, right knee, and right ankle required multiple surgeries.
  • A settlement of $1.6 million for a bus driver who slipped and fell in an icy bus lot, causing her to suffer injuries to her knees and left shoulder.
  • A settlement of $1.35 million for the victim of a head-on car collision who suffered a clavicle injury and a cervical spine injury. The responsible party hired an accident reconstructionist to try to dispute liability.
  • A settlement of $1.1 million for an Uber driver struck by a commercial vehicle. The accident left him with neck and shoulder injuries.
  • A million-dollar settlement for a car accident victim who suffered knee, neck, and back injuries that required surgery. The other party’s defense attorneys tried to claim the victim ran a red light.

Our New Jersey personal injury lawyers are dedicated to accident victims. We understand that a settlement or verdict can help victims and their loved ones heal stress-free, get the family back on their feet financially, and start rebuilding their lives. So if someone else’s negligence caused you or your loved one’s injuries, you have legal options. Our team is here to guide you through the process of seeking compensation.

Our New Jersey Lawyers Work on a Contingency-Fee Basis

Shulman & Hill operates on a contingency-fee basis, meaning that you do not pay until we settle your claim or win your lawsuit. We can begin working on your case without charging you any fees upfront.

Once your case is won or settled, we will receive our compensation. Our contingency-fee structure allows you to avoid paying out-of-pocket for legal services. We aim to make our services accessible as you face high medical bills and cope with your accident-related losses.

What Compensation Is Available for a Personal Injury in New Jersey?

After an injury, you can seek many different types of compensation. Some include:

  • Lost income: If you have to take time away from work to recover after an accident, you are likely missing out on the paychecks you need for medical expenses and to support yourself and your family. A personal injury claim or lawsuit in New Jersey can help you recoup some of your losses.
  • Medical bills and expenses: An experienced New Jersey personal injury lawyer will know to account for immediate medical costs and any ongoing or future care you may require because of an accident.
  • Pain and suffering: Assigning a dollar amount to this non-economic loss can be challenging. However, accidents can have consequences that are not strictly economic. Our team will take your pain and suffering into account.
  • Reduced earning capacity: Some injuries are so severe that they affect your ability to return to work in the same capacity or at all. If you can no longer earn your pre-injury income, you can seek awards for reduced earning capacity.

The damages you can seek depend on the extent of your injuries and how they affect your life. Our New Jersey personal injury team can determine which ones apply to your case when we start working on it.

You Can Seek Wrongful Death Damages if You Lost a Loved One in a New Jersey Accident

Nothing can undo the loss of a loved one. However, our legal team can fight for justice and compensation to help your family cope with the financial losses you incurred due to the loss of your loved one.

We can help your family seek wrongful death damages, such as:

  • Your loved one’s accident-related medical bills
  • Your loved one’s conscious pain and suffering
  • Loss of income your loved one provided
  • Loss of consortium for the companionship they offered
  • Funeral service expenses
  • Burial or cremation expenses

You deserve to honor the memory of your family member properly. While you grieve in peace, we can handle the entire legal process.

Begin Your New Jersey Personal Injury Case as Soon as Possible

According to New Jersey’s personal injury statute of limitations, you generally have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit. There may be some exceptions, which your lawyer can determine when they work on your case. But you must begin the process as soon as possible.

Two years may seem like a long time, but it can fly by. Keep in mind that a New Jersey personal injury attorney has to investigate your accident and gather evidence. Some evidence is time-sensitive. Working on your case soon after the accident can help us gather the evidence before it is no longer available.

There is also a time limit if you lost a loved one and want to file a wrongful death lawsuit. According to the state’s wrongful death statute of limitations, you generally have two years to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Our attorneys can work to meet these deadlines, so you don’t lose your legal right to compensation.

Ensure You Seek Medical Attention After a New Jersey Personal Injury Accident

After a personal injury accident, your health should come first. Some accident-related injuries are so severe they require immediate medical intervention. Even if you didn’t have to go to the emergency room, you should still see a doctor as soon as possible. Only a physician can properly assess your injuries and provide a diagnosis and treatment plan.

Seeing a doctor and following through with your treatment plan can help your case. Our New Jersey personal injury attorneys can use your medical records to link your injuries to the accident and help build your case for compensation.
