Winning Cases is no Accident
Injuries affect everything. If you have been hurt because of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to substantial financial compensation.
Accident victims tend to make two common mistakes:
- Assuming their cases aren’t worth enough to pursue
- Trusting insurance companies to fairly appraise their claims
The truth is that, even if your accident was a fairly modest one, you may still be entitled to much more than you realize — and you can’t count on the insurance companies to tell you that.
New Jersey personal injury law is set up to reimburse accident victims for the full value of the losses and suffering they have experienced as a result of someone else’s negligence.
Negligence refers to another party’s failure to behave reasonably or carefully. Speeding on the highway, ignoring safety regulations in the workplace, rushing through a medical procedure — these are but a few common examples of negligence, and all of them entitle their victims to compensation.
Even everyday carelessness can constitute negligence under New Jersey personal injury law. Regardless of whether the defendant intended to cause harm, if you were hurt and someone else’s negligence played a part in the injury, you’re likely eligible for a financial recovery.
The Insurance Problem
These days, most personal injury lawsuits ultimately involve one or more insurance companies. Even if another corporate party is at fault — an employer in a workplace accident, for example, or a store owner in a slip and fall — those corporate parties are typically insured as well, and their insurance companies will eventually enter the picture.
In any event, insurance companies have one primary goal: to pay you as little as they possibly can.
While New Jersey’s insurance companies would like you to believe they are your neighbor, your ally, and your friend, they are not. They do not represent you. On the contrary, they will look out for their shareholders before they look out for you.
Unfortunately, the reality of that situation has created a legal climate in which innocent, hardworking people have no choice but to hire an attorney just to get a fair shot at the compensation they deserve. An experienced and aggressive law firm can go toe to toe with the insurance companies’ legal teams, holding them accountable and insisting they follow the law.
