An injury can take anyone by surprise, at any time. No one expects to become injured, especially in circumstances beyond their control.

Once an accident occurs, the situation can quickly spin further out of hand. Medical bills, time off work, and recovery periods all take up valuable time and resources. If you were injured in an accident where someone else was at fault, you may be able to file a lawsuit to seek financial compensation. A personal injury lawsuit can help you recoup your losses, gain resources to help you heal, and hold the liable party accountable for their actions.

Personal Injury Rates in New Jersey

According to New Jersey’s State Health Assessment Data compiled by the Department of Health, unforeseen accidents are the third-leading cause of death in New Jersey. Unintentional injuries account for 6.2% of all deaths in New Jersey. Unexpected personal injuries were the leading cause of death for New Jerseyans ages 15-49 in the most recent year on record. 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 they 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 data. Meanwhile, the average cost of emergency room visits nationwide has risen significantly over the past few years. The cost of emergency room visits in New Jersey can rise exponentially depending on the kinds of treatment involved, the number of repeat visits required, and the possibility of transfer services, like ambulance rides, being utilized.

All of these costs can take you by surprise when you have been injured in New Jersey. Shulman & Hill represents those who have experienced large and small accidents with the same level of dedication, skill, expertise, 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.

New Jersey Comparative Negligence Law

New Jersey is a comparative negligence state which means that relative fault is applied amongst the parties. The amount to which a party is determined to be liable can influence the amount that their insurance company will cover in the event of a lawsuit.

Having a New Jersey personal injury lawyer on your side can ensure that you are able to seek the best possible outcome in your case.

What Compensation is Available in the Event of a Personal Injury in New Jersey?

After an injury, there are many different kinds of compensation you can seek. Some examples include:

  • Lost wages: 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 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 not only for immediate medical costs but also for the predicted expense of any ongoing or future care you may require because of an accident.
  • Pain and suffering: These non-economic losses can be difficult to put a dollar amount to, but accidents can have consequences that are not strictly economic. Pain and suffering are losses that a qualified personal injury lawyer will know how to take fully into account.
  • Punitive damages: Additional damages may be awarded in the event that someone’s actions were particularly egregious or negligent, leading to a devastating accident.
